We all have that friend, sister, partner, who is the ultimate cool girl, the fashion it girl with a wardrobe to die for. She oozes style and never gets it wrong. This is when your panic sets in, what to buy her?!?

I was bought up by very fashionable parents, and I witnessed from a young age the art of cool gift giving. There was a matrix style leather coat one year, a few statement pieces of jewellery, home pieces, and almost every other a year a pair of killer boots – because there’s nothing like a sassy pair of winter boots. These gifts were cleverly thought-out, each piece like it had belonged to that person for years already.

With that in mind, I have created a shopping edit with Moda Operandi of the best gifts to give your ultimate chic chick this season. A guide suited for all ages (because fashion is ageless and it’s about how we style those classic pieces), full of pieces that will blend in with your fashion icons current wardrobe, but special enough that she (fingers crossed) won’t already own. Bit’s for the new home owner – coffee table books are always a good idea. Think colourful beaded jewellery for your sister, gold Alighieri for your loved one and a big shearling coat for the ultimate fashion obsessed. Like my mum said, ‘boots are always a good idea’, and the white Jimmy Choos, or anything by Paris Texas (the snake ones) are sure to be a winner. Headbands are a great present, as they’re going nowhere in the fashion world, and although she may already have a few, you can never have enough. That same statement also goes for sunglasses and wallets, (and shoes, and bags, and coats, and jumpers……)

For ultimate points, if it was me, I’d be after one of the Loewe bags, their classic and I’ll be sure to have that in my collection forever. But no matter what you pick on this list, all are sure to make that style queen smile.
