Picking up a slew of pretty little things that you can gift to any of your friends would be the easy way to shop for the holidays; but for your best friend, not just any chic thing will do. For the trendy girl in your group, I’ve pulled together a selection of pieces – at various price points – that are sure to please her ever-changing tastes, and set you at the top of her thank you list…
Elizabeth and James Fringed Suede Bucket Bag: Two of the years’ biggest trends in one bag! We’ve seen a lot of bucket/fringe combos, but this asymmetrical twist keeps the Olsens’ ahead of the competition. On NET-A-PORTER for $345.
Anya Hindmarch Eyes Embossed Leather Shoulder Bag: At this point, accessories with cute graphics are no longer novelties, so you can easily carry one to work without turning heads (at least in the bad way, that is!). On Luisa via Roma for $1,295.
J.W. Anderson Bucket Bag: The bucket bag trend has been around for a while now, so to keep things interesting, the genius that is J.W. Anderson has designed a literal bucket bag. On Farfetch for $1,359.68
Maison Margiela Paint-Splatter Leather Card Case: You don’t need to spend a thousand to show your friend you care. A card case, especially in vivid, Pollock-esque paint splatter, is the perfect way to gift quality without going over budget. At Bergdorf Goodman for $236 (from $295).
Valentino Rockstud Camouflage Nylon Clutch: Will we ever tire of camo? Likely not, especially when Valentino updates it in a rainbow’s worth of colors and finishes it off with a slick smattering of iconic Rockstuds. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $387 (from $645).
