If it hasn’t happened already, over the next week your loved ones will begin to ask what you would like for Christmas. You might hem and haw and eventually proclaim that you already have everything you need (or you can buy anything you need). But the reality is it’s always nice to get a few things you really want or an item that you might not splurge on for yourself for Christmas. Here’s a list of closet staples that can help you round out your Christmas wish list this year.
A High Quality Suede, Leather, or Faux Fur Jacket
A wardrobe staple jacket for mild winter days and to wear throughout the spring and fall is a must! It also adds dimension to a basic top and jeans combo.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a tall or over-the-knee boot, or simply a bootie, boots are an essential winter wardrobe item.
A Classic Cut Wool or Trench Coat
A classic layering piece for the winter months, if you haven’t invested in a classic cut wool or trench coat yet do so this year because it is on trend. Wear them with your cropped high-rise jeans and a sweater or a dress.
A Stylish Handbag, Tote, or Clutch
I carry a handbag every day so having a nice, high-quality bag you are proud to be carrying with you always makes a great gift.
A Truly Great Pair of Pants, Jeans, or Leggings
If there’s a pair you’ve been eyeing but didn’t dare splurge, why not add it to your Christmas list. Coated jeans and faux leather leggings are popular at this time of year and can elevate an outfit while still keeping it casual.
Simple, Everyday Jewelry
Simple gold earrings, hoops, and gold rings are my thing. I tend to wear the same pieces over and over until I get sick of them so I feel no guilt in splurging a little on a simple piece of jewelry.
Sneakers That Go With Everything
