On the second day of Gift Guide your Who What Wear staffers give to thee, the perfect presents for the working woman who's sophisticated and savvy! Surely you know the type: her agenda is always packed with board meetings and strategizing sessions, yet this single-mindedness and professionalism is matched only by her appetite for the finer fashionable things in life. She may be able to do it all, but what she doesn't have is lots of time, so do her a holiday solid and swipe some of this lovely loot for your chic office secret Santa! Trust us, whether the professional impresario in your life is a corporate ladder-climber or a visionary building up a brand (think Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the brains and brawn behind The Row, Elizabeth and James, Olsenboye), we've gathered everything you'll need to take care of business for the Mogulista in your life!
Louis Vuitton Computer Sleeve 13" ($670)
Louis Vuitton is a venerable company with a rich history of quality and classÂ--something the business babe can identify with! This laptop case features LV's power-print monogram, which allows her to wear her taste level on her sleeve without having to take off her strong-shouldered blazer! Obviously, this darling designer version is quite the investment, so we found an alternative that's totally different in style, but looks just as fashionable: Want Organic for J. Crew's Kansai Computer Case ($285). Yes, it's still more expensive than the default black neoprene versions that most people have, but it's so much more stylish! We think you'll find it well worth the upgrade...
J.Crew Icon Trench ($298)
Whether she's a blue-chip banker or a producer on the lot, nothing helps a business-body bring the chic more than a terrific trench coat. Though Burberry is the most famous purveyor of this khaki-colored classic, we happen to think that J. Crew's timeless Icon Trench can't be beat when it comes to price and style. Done and done!
CC Skye Mini Spike Bracelet ($125)
Show them who's the boss with this tough take on Cartier's classic Love bracelet. Any commanding corporate crusader will adore this deluxe punk piece because it shares a hardcore Mogulista's take-no-prisoners attitude!
Reiss Chrissie Studded Court Heels ($295)
The mini mogul may be all buttoned up at work but that doesn't mean she needs to water down her on-trend tastes. These studded Reiss heels are the perfect way to pepper in a little posh polish with a tried-and-true blouse and pencil skirt combo!
D.L. & Co. 24k Gold Skull Card Holder Set ($190)
She may be making a killing at the annual bonus meeting, but nothing cramps a Mogulista's style like a drab office space. Before we were fashion editors, we had desk jobs, and let us tell you, it's not always easy to express yourself within the confines of a cubicle (or corner office, for that matter)! But fear not, as this awesomely macabre holder offers the most fantastic way to stash business cards and contacts with a little drama and luster!
Brulee Cami ($104) and Boy Shorts ($60)
You don't have to be a lawyer to understand the laws of attraction. As in-demand power-players, Mogulistas work and party hard, and know how to dress appropriately for all kinds of getting-busy meetings. These sexy plum pieces from the beloved lingerie brand Brulee are the ideal way to help her, and her, err, business partner, unwind after a long work day.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor ($8) in Red Revival
A smart 9-5'er knows that maquillage is an essential accent when transitioning an office outfit into a cocktail party ensemble. (After all, nothing says "off duty" like a bold bright red lip!) Help your Mogulista prep for some after-hours fun by grabbing her a Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Red Revival. It's the ideal option for anyone who wants to make a big impact with a little hint of strategic color!
Ksubi Bellatrix Sunglasses ($289)
Whether grabbing the trades in the morning or slipping out for a caffeine fix, Mogulistas know the power of killer shades. Who could resist an accessory that hides the shadows after a long night of negotiations or conceals the glee of getting a much-deserved promotion? Not our girl! These two-tone Bellatrix frames are circular, chic, and will flatter a variety of visage shapes! We also think these look-a-like Round Style Sunglasses ($12) from Sunglass Warehouse will round out your frame collection quite nicely.
