It’s happened to all of us: someone presents a gift and… uh oh, we’ve got zilch, nada, nothing for them. Panic sets in as we run through our brains for any gift we can potentially scrounge up, or worse, “re-gift.”
We want to make sure these situations never happen again, or when they do we are as prepared as possible. That’s why we’ve compiled our very own Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide. The following selection has a variety of gifts– from quirky to chic– for every person on your forgotten list (oops!). Never feel unprepared again, or at least not during the holidays!

For the techie…
Kate Spade iPhone Cases, $40 -Let’s face it; none of us can endure life without our beloved technological gadgets. We’re always looking at them, so why not style them?

For the cold lover…or hater…
For the gym rat…
Lululemon skinny satin pirouette headband, $12 – Hair never wants to stay in place, especially when working out. These headbands hold bangs and flyaways, while giving our ponytails the love they deserve. Looking good while working out is certainly not a crime.

What makes a great jacket? I found myself really asking this after we experienced a blustery blast of cold weather mixed in with some early fall flurries.
Runway presentations make the most of women’s outerwear in all colors from neutral to bright with fantastic detailing or subtle minimalism. However, when it comes down to it, a jacket needs to be functional. Maybe you demand a hood, large pockets, or a full-length zipper. Regardless of such basics, I am not willing to sacrifice style, and I doubt our readers are either.
This is why I’ve compiled my favorite “Runway to Real Way Jackets.” While extremely trendy, these jackets are still practical. There’s nothing unrealistic about incorporating any one of these into your wardrobe.
1. The Bright Jacket
Brighter shades have been popping up everywhere recently. Despite the opposing forces, bright hues work well for a fall/winter trench coat. Tip: Ground the rest of your outfit in black or other neutrals.
2. The Fur Bomber
Fur bombers are classic and luxe simultaneously. Again, fur took over the runways, seen everywhere from Alexander Wang to Rachel Zoe. You’ll be sure to turn heads in a glossy piece like this, but if you’re trying to be more subtle, try a faux-fur collar for starters.
3. The Camel Coat
Has this look ever done us wrong? I love both belted ones accentuating the waist, but I especially adore the robe-like vibe of NastyGal’s drape jacket (pictured above). Normally a structured trench, camel will always be timeless, regardless of what form it takes. It’s a celebrity must, a runway favorite, and an every day woman’s go-to. Tip: Pick the shade that best works with your skin tone.
4. The Tweed
Chanel has always done tweed right. Now, it’s our turn to channel Karl Lagerfeld’s feminine vision and prove tweed is anything but stuffy. Topshop’s blue version of the fabrication is fun and funky, but boxy jackets like these are all about playing with proportion. Wear it open with jeans or alone with a skirt; just remember to keep everything sleek.
5. The Fur Vest
It’s still crazy cool, and I couldn’t be happier! I wasn’t ready to give up my fur vest just yet. Part edgy, part glam, this piece is all about attitude. Brown, black, white, grey, beige, it won’t be hard to find a vest you’ll love. Tip: Fur vests can add bulk if done incorrectly. Be aware of proper fit, watching for armhole size.
6. The Puffer
Perhaps the most basic, but also the warmest, a puffy jacket is a winter must-have. DKNY reminds us that style and functionality can easily coexist. I LOVE the bright cherry red and quilted looks, (and especially love anything down-filled). This look will keep you warm and safe; no need to fear the elements in this one!
All that’s left to do is to pick your favorite, and stay warm!
