Knix Cozzzy Lounge Cardigan Cream

All of the silhouettes in Knix’s ultra-plush “Cozzzy” line are as soft as they sound, and this cardigan’s one and the same. Grab this for the fashion girl who loves a great turtleneck dress — she’ll layer it on before heading out.


Lulus Louelle Tan High Waisted Cropped Sweater Pants Tan

Unfamiliar with sweater pants? Now’s the time to get acquainted. In a relaxed, wide-leg cut that’s totally in vogue right now, these are sure to fit (and flatter) everyone on your wish list with ease.


Reformation Osteria Open Back Sweater

Does the girl on your gift list have a playful side? This open-back knit top from Reformation is just the thing to keep up with her outgoing, fun-loving personal style. Great for wearing with jeans, silk slip skirts, or joggers.


MANGO Knitted Oversize Jacket

All hail the shacket. In a cheerful butter yellow, the layering piece is sure to go with winter whites just as perfectly as a floral spring dress. Net net: add it to your loved one’s closet sooner, rather than later.


EMU Australia Mayberry Slippers

Right now, sensible footwear is vital — and these indoor-outdoor slippers are checking every box. Fashion insider styling tip: gift the Ash gray color-way with a pack of white ankle socks for a buzzy cool-girl look.


Madewell Brushed Scarf

‘Tis the season to bundle up and make a statement while doing it. Madewell’s macro-checked scarf is primed for both, and its dusky color palette is sure to feel at home in any stylish woman’s closet.


State Cashmere V-Neck Cashmere Sweater

Polished and versatile, the v-neck sweater is just a few steps (and fine-gauge comb strokes) away from becoming a family heirloom. Great the smart-casual dresser in your circle, or the minimalist who loves elevated basics.


Summersalt The Cloud 9 Silky PJ Set

There’s nothing quite like a long pajama set to summon the winter chill. Summersalt’s Cloud 9 set comes in a Celestial Dot print that’s sure to liven up her sleepwear drawer. Hint: the brand offers matching sleep masks and scrunchies, so shop both for a complete look.


Sezane Cape Kahina
