From looks for every celebration to luxury fashion gift ideas for everyone on your “nice list”
These days, it feels like Halloween is Thanksgiving Eve, and before you can blink twice it’s New Year’s Eve. The holiday season goes by in a flash, thanks to the full calendar of fun and frolicking that comes with it. But between shopping for presents and selecting festive looks, it can also be a little overwhelming. It helps to get a headstart on outfit and luxury fashion gift ideas—if you start shopping now, by the time the frenzy hits you’ll be able to focus on enjoying the holiday lights and creating insta-worthy flatlays of the outfits you’ll be rocking. From designer party dresses that do double-duty at weddings and theater outings and “friendsgiving”-friendly styles, plus proper looks for gatherings with your (or your partner’s) parents—to gifts for kids, coworkers, friends, and family—italist has you covered.
Looks that thrill
If your holiday plans involve travel, M Missoni’s laidback-luxe knit separates offer both comfort and style, and Lurex metallic thread can add a dazzling touch (air travelers may want to select styles without Lurex, though, as it can set off airport security scanners). Also consider keeping things simple with a knit midi or maxi dress. Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, and Marni offer some low-effort options with high-style impact. If you’re attending formal family gatherings, look to Forte_Forte or Semicouture for demure dresses. When planning your partywear, The Attico and Retrofête offer an array of showstopping options. Those who plan on foregoing travel and parties for more casual meet-ups with friends will likely love this season’s wide-leg jeans from designers like Off-White and Celine. Wearing them with slimmer-fitting tops and mid-height block heel shoes will keep your look pulled together.
Luxury fashion gift ideas that spark glee
Doing a gift exchange with your girl gang? GCDS and Isabel Marant offer adorably cool jewelry for less than $150. Get your sister or bestie a designer scarf that she can also use as a wrap when she travels, like the logoed ones from Tory Burch, Gucci, and Fendi. Your mom or favorite aunt would likely appreciate a tote from Dolce & Gabbana, and if she’s an animal lover, get her one by Stella McCartney. Kids these days know all the trends, so they’ll be delighted when they unwrap their boxes and find Burberry, Kenzo, or Balenciaga sweatshirts waiting for them. And for your favorite guy? A hat by Valentino or Balmain will score huge points while making him look smart on your arm at holiday events.
