Buying for a super-stylin’ friend and not quite sure where to start? That’s where we come in.
Here's the ultimate style gift guide.
$50 And Under
adidas Originals Trefoil Bucket Hat
The humble bucket hat, otherwise known as the ‘fisherman’s hat’, has been kicking around the traps a little this year. However, a whole heap of designers went big on bucket hats for S/S19, so we’re predicting this to be your sun protection of choice this summer. Buy it here.
KAPPA Red Belt Bag
2018 was the year every that element of 90s style was rehashed, reworked and revived. This included the belt bag (or bum bag), in various formats from luxury leather to simple and sporty. It also included a comeback for Italian street and sportswear labels, like KAPPA. Get your hands on it here.
Reebok Colour Block T-Shirt
$200 And Under
“Gorillaz Edition” G-Shock Watch
We weren’t joking when we said every style element of the 90s was revived this year. Do we need to wear a watch when our smartphone is basically attached to our person at all times? In this case—yep. Get it here.
Ligne Blanche Jean Michael Basquiat “Trumpet” Perfumed Candle
Paris-based candle company Linge Blanche’s art-inspired candles do the impossible and make actually giving someone a candle cool. This sort of Parisian vibe reminds us of how cool Colette was. Bonus? These candles also smell damn amazing. Buy it here.
Adam Selman x Le Specs The Scandal Cat Eye Sunglasses
Adam Selman’s Lolita sunglasses were huge—worn by everyone from the Hadid sisters to Rihanna. This is the sort of style gift that’ll take it to the next level. The Scandal is the designer’s most recent, in-your-face version of the cat-eye frame. Get them here.
MM6 Maison Margiela Metallic ‘Gift Bow’ Shoulder Bag
Price: approximately $983
The MM6 Maison Margiela Gift Bow bag is pretty much the whole package. It’s a bit festive, impactful and—best of all—it’s shaped like a classic confetti bow in high-shine reflective silver, so you can skip the wrapping paper on this one. Pick it up here.
Balenciaga Triple S Clear Sole Sneakers
The Triple S really was the sneaker of the year. Its hefty sole and outrageous curves were rolled out in a rainbow of colourways season to season, from Lego block red and yellow, to inky purple with slashes of pink. Pump up the volume with the brand-new clear sole style. Get them here.
