Everygirl

Everygirl
Tuesday, December, 07, 2010 For our final installment of our Gift Guide, we'd like to draw your attention to a lady you know very well: the Everygirl. Admired for the way she works on-trend pieces into her wardrobe of excellently edited essentials, the Everygirl always looks decidedly darling and totally current. In addition to having approachable and intriguing personal style, this fashion enthusiast is perpetually in the know. She's always aware of the latest designer collaborations, knowledgeable about the most au courant looks, and tells you all about it via her frequently updated Twitter feed. Much like today's muse, Rachel Bilson, the Everygirl wears the trends rather than letting the trends wear her, but that doesn't mean she's immune to an of-the-moment item like a shearling jacket or a marvelous Chanel nail polish-quite the opposite, in fact! If this girl sounds familiar, you're in luck because we've rounded up eight amazing potential presents that are sure to please her! Plus, just to make the shopping a little sweeter, everything in today's Gift Guide is under $100 and we've also included an amazing tip for easy holiday shopping, courtesy of the lovely team at Rightcliq by Visa.* (More on that in a moment!) Affordable, fuss-free, and fabulous presents-you might say we saved the best for last!

Vogue Model by Robin Derrick and Robin Muir ($65)
Magazines are a constant source of sartorial insight for the Everygirl and her inspiration boards are always beautifully updated with editorial tears. Accordingly, we know she'd spend hours pouring over this decorative coffee table tome chronicling some of the most glorious Vogue covers to date! From Kate Moss to Claudia Schiffer to Giselle, this modelicious bible will truly make the Everygirl swoon!

Bing Bang by Anna Sheffield Vivienne Tiny Studs ($48)
The Everygirl always respects an accessory with versatility, so these triangle studs are a sure thing. Edgy enough to add panache to any ensemble, but tiny enough to work for everyday outfits, they're a perfect purchase. In addition to their great shape, we're particularly fond of their rose-gold finish; it's a more interesting choice than run-of-the-mill yellow gold. Just tell your Everygirl that you expect her to expertly contrast the studs with more feminine pieces like a diaphanous floral dress or top and then prepare yourself to be on the receiving end of a hug!

Haute Betts Gypsy Bracelets ($45 each)
These embellished woven bracelets are a perfect way to honor your fashionable friendship with the Everygirl! They will not only add a touch of gypset whimsy to every ensemble, but they'll also look absolutely adorable stacked up or mixed in with her existing bangles. We think your giftee will be delighted by this darling find, and may even want to peruse the rest of Haute Betts' charming wallet-friendly treasures to add to the colorful collection on her arm!

Topshop Leopard Print Laptop Case ($40)
The Everygirl is most likely obsessed with leopard accents and probably has everything from Dries van Noten's furry scarf to Giuseppe Zanotti's cat-print platform booties on her wish list. While those designer pieces are decidedly pricey, you can fulfill her spotted craving without breaking the bank by picking up Topshop's Leopard Print Laptop Case. Much cuter than your typical plain black computer covers, this case is the perfect directional option that is sure to give her a fashionable thrill whenever she pulls out her laptop!

J.Crew Selvedge Chambray Shirt ($98)
A denim button-down shirt is always a closet essential, and J. Crew's chambray version is just the piece the Everygirl needs to lead the fashion pack! Not only can she up her stylesetting quotient by pairing it with contrasting denim or a studded moto jacket, but she can also wear it tucked into pencil skirts and slacks when called upon to appear in her most responsible looking outfits!

DKNY Cashmere Pop Top Gloves ($65) in Charcoal
As the weather grows colder, gloves are a serious sartorial need, and this season they can be worn with everything from daily denim to floaty frocks! We like these fingerless-optional iterations by DKNY because they allow the Everygirl to text and tweet with stylish ease. Charcoal was our hue of choice, as it is an excellent neutral, but you can also pick them up in black, gray, sapphire, teal, violet, and rose-all of which will nicely accent a camel coat!

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour ($25) in Gold Lamé
The Everygirl's beauty look is never complete without an on-the-cusp product and one can hardly go wrong with a bit of Chanel, hence our inclusion of this in-demand nail polish. While the most recent resort polish-the beautiful blue Riva-is getting buzz, we think you should go for something a little less expected, like the gorgeous Gold Lamé lacquer instead. It's a limited-edition shade that's perfect for the holidays and definitely a product that the Evergirl needs!

Zara Sheepskin Perfecto Jacket ($100)
Shearling jackets are truly a must-have this fashion season, so it's only apt that the Everygirl would want a version of this covetable outerwear for her own trendsetting armoire. We love Zara's iteration because it's a perfect way to test out this trend without wearing out your wallet! We imagine the Everygirl will pair it with flared jeans and a plaid button-down for a 70s-inspired off-duty look, but however she styles it, she's definitely going to love it!-Liza Kaplan
