The Under-$150 Holiday Items Every Fashion Girl Has on Her Wish List

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 finds on their current wish list.

Janelle Marie Lloyd is one of my favorite NY-based people to follow on Instagram. She has that effortless cool-girl style that always looks so chic, and she's been known to share affordable fashion finds, which I can appreciate. It's only fitting that her website and Instagram account name are "Wait You Need This" because I do, in fact, feel that way about nearly every single item she posts. Knowing that Lloyd would have some great gifting ideas up her sleeve right about now, I asked her to share what wallet-friendly fashion items she's considering. All of her 25 picks below are under $150, and even better, all of them can be found at Macy's, making your holiday shopping just about as easy as it gets.

"Dress this easy sweater up or down. In holiday-ready burgundy, it can take you anywhere this season. "

"Lug-sole boots are the IT shoe of the season. I love this fresh take on the trend in white."

"This Calvin Klein bra is the perfect stocking stuffer. It’s perfectly comfy worn under loungewear."

"In this current climate, who doesn’t need a loungewear upgrade? This oh-so-cozy teddy sweatshirt is a no brainer for anyone on your list."

"Zoom meetings are here to stay, and that means statement shoulders are, too."

"Love this loungewear set to gift to your mom or mother-in-law. What better way to keep them looking stylish than with a little leopard print?"

"Beanies aren’t just for keeping warm. They’re a wardrobe staple for me come winter. Style them as part of your look whether you plan to be outside or indoors."

"For your friend who’s a workout regular, add a little flair to her sea of black leggings."

"If you miss wearing heels like I do, rock these black-studded stiletto boots to holiday dinner this year."

"I have this little wristlet bag and love how it just goes with everything, from evening dresses to jeans."

"Gift this sweatshirt to your friend who likes to look stylish while she sweats."

"If Birkenstock and your fuzzy slippers had a baby, it would be this shoe—my favorite gift idea for under $50."

"Perk up your loungewear with this tie-dye set in soft lilac. It’s just the right dose of color for winter and a crowd-pleaser of a holiday gift."

"Fringe and a cold shoulder in one sweater? Yes, please. Touches like these make a top immediately festive."

"An adorable sweater to get or give, this nubby cable knit is equal parts cozy and chic."

"Give the gift of great fitting denim. Straight-leg jeans are flattering on everyone."

"Wear these boots on snow days this winter for some ski style minus the slopes."

"Midi dresses are my favorite. Love this one in festive tartan for the holiday season."

"I’d wear these sequin high-waist pants with a roomy sweater on top for an intimate New Year’s Eve."

"This cold-shoulder top is the perfect red for the holidays. Wear it to socially distanced Christmas cocktails."

"Subtle sequins and a bit off the shoulder means this slouchy sweater has New Year’s Eve at home written all over it."

"Before the pandemic, I reached for my block-heel black ankle boots at least three times a week. Get them as a gift to yourself now and thank me later."

"These boots are lined with cozy shearling. They’re like a warm hug for your feet."

"For your friend’s holiday gathering at home, pair this fuzzy sweater with leather pants and silver hoops for fashion-girl “Oh, I just threw this on” energy."
