I don’t like to assume that all girls love girly things, but most of the girls I know do. (Myself included, of course.) This time of year is the best time to mix my love for all things girly with holiday trends, which also happens to make great gift ideas. I feel like I’m covered in trends in this look, but sometimes you just gotta go big or go home, right?!

People have mixed feelings about wearing velvet. Typically they either love it or hate it. It’s definitely not a year-round fabric, but it makes for great holiday pieces. Think velvet dresses, leggings, and blazers. And this year designers have transitioned the fabric into fun accessories too, like over-the-knee boots and quilted shoulder bags. If you’ve ever been on the fence about wearing velvet, now’s the time to go for it. Here’s a roundup of velvet pieces to get you started:
As my photographer knows all too well, I’m obsessed with these bags. She’s photographed me with a bunch of them. I’m either wearing a new one, or looking for a new one. Of course you can rock them all year long and not just during the holiday season, but they make the perfect statement when accessorizing your holiday outfits. Charming Charlie sent me a gift card to shop, and when I spotted this ‘Girls’ Resin Minaudiere on their website immediately I knew I had to have it! I love the black base and mix of sparkly colors that makes it versatile enough to wear with anything. The great thing about these bags is that they stand out and can stand alone, so you can clutch one with jeans and a T-shirt as well as a sparkly, sequin holiday gown! Unfortunately my bag is sold out, but you should shop some of my other faves below:
Fedoras had their moment, as did beanies. But this year, it’s all about the beret. You can rock ’em plain, colorful, in leather, embellished, and embroidered. I love this one I snagged from Bershka which reads “Bad things are cool.” I thought it was fun, and oh-so-French. But there are plenty of other chic options – check them out:
Velvet pieces, acrylic bags and berets make for great gifting this year. Which of the three will you gift the ladies in your life?
