1. Cozy Rib-Knit Sweater | $20
This camel sweater is a great basic layering piece. I think it’d look great with white or blue jeans, layered under ponchos, faux fur vests, and blanket scarves. It also comes in eight colors.

2. Metal Rim Cat Eye Glasses | $12
Statement sunglasses are a must-have accessory in any fashionista’s closet. The tortoise shell print and classic cat eye shape makes these perfect for any gal.

3. Leopard Pointed Ballet Flats | $18.50 
Leopard print might as well be another neutral. These flats would work well with dark skinnies, white jeans, and dresses.

4. Faux Leather Clutch | $29
This basic clutch works as an everyday bag, but it’s fancy enough for parties, too. I love the size and its simple metallic detailing.
5. Stone Stud Earrings | $10
I love when earrings look more expensive when they really are. These statement earrings would look great with some holiday curls or even a high ponytail. They add just the right amount of sparkle!

6. Neutral Plaid Scarf | $29
I promise you can’t go wrong with plaid scarves as gifts during this time of year. This black and white one is perfect for snuggling during a chilly day!

7. Faux Fur Vest | $25
Faux fur vests add a touch of glam to any holiday look. Plus, they’re super warm! Wear this on top of a cozy sweater, add a swipe of red lipstick, and you’ll be ready to rock any holiday party in warmth and style.

8. Fleece Lined Beanie | $12
My friend Lauren introduced me to these beanies. They come in six colors and at just $12, I recommend buying one for yourself, too!

9. Sequin Miniskirt | $18
This sequined skirt would look great at a NYE party, don’t you think? I think it’d look super festive with a pair of black heeled booties or strappy black sandals.

10. Metallic Spaghetti Tank Top | $10
Also perfect for a NYE festivity, this foiled top would look perfect with skinny jeans or a pleather miniskirt. Plus, it’s just $10!

If you’re still unsure about her styling preferences or you know how picky she is, try these tips for gift-buying success:

1. Stick with neutrals. They make a good base for any wardrobe and work all year round.
2. Try finding basic winter pieces like sweaters or scarves that are sure to get lots of use.
3. Shop with intention. If you plan on purchasing a pair of shoes for your friend and you know she has a favorite pair, try finding a similar detail or characteristic in those shoes for a thoughtful gift. She will love knowing that you took the time to notice!
