Classic Fashion Gifts For Women

The 14 Classic Gifts on Every Fashion Girl's Wish List

There are some gifts so good, you just can't go wrong. Classic, timeless presents are often the most practical — they're the ones that any recipient will love, wear, and use for years to come, and maybe even pass down as an heirloom to the next generation. From simple-yet-standout solitaires to a beloved brand of ballet flats to the top trench in the game, these are the gifts any girl will want . . . and cherish forever.

Shop the products here.

  • Burberry Trench Coat ($1,795): The most classic topper around, a cotton-twill trench coat works every season, rain or shine.
  • Tiffany & Co. Solitaire Diamond Earrings ($1,200): It's quite possible you'll never find a woman who won't shriek over anything wrapped in Tiffany blue. And, diamond earrings? Just the blingy icing on the cake.
  • Chanel Bag ($3,200): If you asked anyone what handbag she'd carry if the sky was the limit, we guarantee she'd utter Chanel. The house's quilted chain-strap styles are still tops . . . and beloved by any age group.
  • Christian Louboutin Pigalle Pumps ($675): Women 'round the world covet those famous red soles. Whether your giftee already counts a few pairs in her closet or is just starting off, a basic black pump should be well-received.
  • J Brand Skinny Jeans ($189): This label has cemented its status as a luxe denim of choice. Heck, even Kate Middleton wears them constantly.
  • Kate Spade New York Watch ($225): Watch trends may come and go, but a round-face ticker with a slightly thicker-than-average band is forever.
  • Saint James Striped T-Shirt ($95): Striped tees might be a dime a dozen, but why not go to the source of the matter? The brand name comes from the town where weavers got their yarn to make the original Breton tops.
  • Bottega Veneta Clutch ($1,580): A lifetime of formal events is taken care of with a single minaudière. This sleekly woven statement box clutch can make an outfit.
  • Repetto Leather Ballet Slippers ($295): There's no name more famous than Repetto when it comes to ballet flats. Women used to flock to the Paris store, but now you can just order a pair online.
  • Equipment Cashmere Sweater ($270): No closet can be too stocked with cashmere. If you're gifting one, pick a neutral color that'll work with everything.
  • Hunter Rain Boots ($150): A fashion gift that's also practical? Not impossible! These London-based galoshes are ready for the elements but still coveted by the style set.
  • Rick Owens Leather Jacket ($1,895): The leather jacket is the stylish girl's blazer, and no one's better at it than Rick Owens.
  • Coach Legacy Leather Wallet ($225): Help someone get organized chicly with a buttery leather wallet.
  • Salvatore Ferragamo Varina Flats ($525): Before Tory Burch's Reva, these were the flats du jour. Invest in these beauties — they've stood the test of time.

Since I am from the lower, middle-class population, I can't afford to spend over $100 on a t-shirt. Maybe I'll stick to a modest gift-card, or else make something on my own. ;)
