Everybody Loves a Shiny Present

By

It’s the brightest, shiniest, sparkliest time of an already glittery year. Our advice: Don’t question it. Just give into your magpie tendencies, and enable your friends to do the same. Below, we’ve rounded up ten highly giftable metallic pieces. Their reflective powers will make you almost forget it gets dark at 4 p.m.

For Extroverts

Oh My Love Metallic Accordion Pleat Off The Shoulder Set
$88, Urban Outfitters

It’s fire red and sparkly: perfect if you’re shopping for someone (or are someone) who likes being the center of attention.

For the Millennial Pink Stan

Vans Classic Slip On in Rose Gold
$60, Need Supply Co.

Because metallic sneakers are the easiest styling trick.

The Small, Fancy Gift

Hansel from Basel Metallic Rib Crew in Lilac
$36, Need Supply Co.

Despite what you may have heard, socks are a great gift, especially when they’re from fashion-favorite Hansel from Basel. The lavender color makes them especially cool.

For the Chic Gym Rat

Nike Sparkle Pro Cool Dri-FIT stretch-lamé leggings
$60, Net-a-Porter

These have all the technical sturdiness of classic black Nike leggings, but with the added bonus of being shiny.

The Office-Appropriate Option

YFB On The Road Hobbes Metallic Pleated Skirt
$89, Bloomingdales

It’s so much more fun to give a stylish professional a pretty pleated skirt than a white blouse.

For the World Traveler

Madewell The Simple Crossbody Bag in Metallic
$98, Nordstrom

A sturdy-yet-pretty bag for anyone who’s planning a big trip in the next couple months. It’s a muted metallic, so it’ll match anything stuffed in a carry-on.

For The Trendsetter

Faux Fur-lined Jacket
$80, H&M

An oversize shearling with faux-fur cuffs has been a favorite of brands like Acne and Tommy Hilfiger this season. Get the look for much less at H&M.

The Cozy Option

Women’s crackled metallic suede lodge moccasins
$50, J Crew

Bring the flashiness inside with a pair of slippers.

The Versatile Party Bag
