Here’s What 13 Fashion Influencers, Bloggers, and Insiders Really Want for the Holidays
The holidays are here and who better than to steer us in the right direction — gift guide wise — than fashion insiders. These stylish women know how to dress (and how to shop for that matter), so we asked them what they're eyeing for the holidays, and their picks did not disappoint. Get ready to spot neutral go-with-everything booties, bright little carryall bags, comfy loungewear, and must-have coffee table books. Here's what you should add to your wish list this season.
"Now that it's so cold outside I've been eying all kinds of boots — like these Schutz Stretch Suede Block Heel Booties ($290) — and think neutrals are the way to go! We're also moving into a new house soon, so most of the things I'm currently coveting are practical items, such as the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer in Fresh Linen ($280)." — Christine Andrew, fashion influencer behind Hello Fashion and founder of Shop Hello Fashion
"I guess I’m late to the game, but I want an Apple Watch ($400-$800). I was scared it would make me more connected, but I actually think it will give me more distance from my phone and I could take up running and leave the phone at home! I'm also into these Oscar de la Renta Crystal Chain Hoop Earrings ($390). Hoop earrings are a classic staple." — Arielle Ray, Model and Influencer
"I’ve had my eye on this tiny Bienen-Davis 4 AM Bag in Berry Pink Silk Satin with 24k Gold Dipped Hardware ($1,295) for the longest time! For me, the smaller the bag the better, because I don’t like to carry a lot when running around the city. The bright pink works for both winter and summer and I love that you could totally pair it with jeans or a dress. The best part is that you can customize the flap — just all the more reason to add it to your wish list." — Caroline Vazzana, Fashion Editor, Stylist, and Author
"Lulus Starlight Rainbow Sequin Midi Dress ($94) just might be my favorite holiday dress this season! I'll take any excuse to dress up with some sparkle, but the fact that the sequins are rainbow just takes the trend factor to a whole other level. Pair it with a leather jacket and some chunky heels and you're ready to be best-dressed at any party or rooftop cocktail hour." — Maddie Perry, Influencer and YouTuber
"I'm an absolute cashmere fanatic, and I've been eyeing Subtle Luxury Cashmere Travel Blanket ($295) for my upcoming holiday travels — it even has foot inserts! There’s something so sumptuous about being enveloped in cashmere, and since it’s so versatile, it’s the perfect travel accessory." — Christina Lara, Managing Director of Red Light PR
"I love getting all cozy after a long bath and I imagine this UGG Lolla Silk Robe ($198) is beyond comfortable. Spa gift certificates from the Montage Beverly Hills are always welcome. With all the socializing around the holidays, some me time is great!" — Shannon Dalonzo, Model and Influencer
"A Gucci Leather Belt With Double G Buckle ($450) dresses up any look, makes a statement, and is a timeless classic the recipient will keep forever. It's a wardrobe staple." — Annie Lawless, Influencer and Founder of LAWLESS Beauty
"This Bella Dahl Ultra Cozy Cardicoat ($174) is a must-have piece for me because it’s so soft and cozy! Great for traveling (and long hours on a plane), bumming around the house, or pairing over a tank and jeans for a casual Sunday look." — Andreea Cristina, Beauty, Fashion, and Lifestyle Influencer
"Right now I'm lusting over everything Captain Blankenship makes, particularly their Rose & Pomegranate Face Oil ($38). I have very sensitive skin so I love that their ingredients are organic with no unnecessary fillers. Pomegranate is full of antioxidants, and they also use calendula, an extract from marigold flowers that works wonders to soothe sensitive skin. A little goes a long way with their products; I've been using their Mermaid Hair Oil all year and still have half a bottle left!" — Ester Delug, Founder and Designer of Little Rooms
"This Tobi Cecilia Chunky Knit Sweater ($108)! This color is my go-to right now, so I was happy to find a sweater in this shade. Plus the quality is a 10!" — Brooke Hagen, Style Influencer
"My holiday wish list goes as follows: Givenchy shoes from Clare Waight Keller's new collection, an Atelier Paulin Pierre Emotion Stone Necklace ($1,840) with my daughter’s name Colette on it, a From Future Turtleneck Poncho With Fringe ($170) because it’s cold outside, and for my shelves, the Grace Coddington Collection ($245) of fashion books." — Anne-Sophie Baillet, Founder of Atelier Paulin
"I love this adorable ASTR the Label Vivian Burnout Skater Dress ($138) because it not only screams Christmas cheer (thanks to its beautiful wintery floral print), but it's also ideal for a holiday dinner with the fam. I plan to pair it with a velvet mustard color heel to add a fun fall color to the look." — Taylor Marshall, Influencer
"I’d love a jean refresh this season! The Parker Smith Bombshell Skinny ($210) is my favorite, and the Cropped Tuxedo ($178) is made for holiday. I’m also looking forward to some time off and this Baylis & Harding Royale Bouquet Ultimate Indulgence Collection Gift Set ($20) smells great and provides the perfect way to relax after a busy season." — Sara Andréasson, Co-Founder of Michele Marie PR
