‘TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY’
Hi everyone and Happy December to you all!
I don’t know about you but this is by far my most favourite time of the year! I love the fact that I get to spend time with my loved ones, eat lots and lots of food, without feeling guilty and opening up all my gifts.
Now on that word gifts, which is what this post is all about! We all know that it can get a little tricky, when deciding what to buy your loved ones this Christmas, especially for the gents. Well guys, fear not because I’ve got you covered! I have somehow made it a little easier for you by choosing some gifts that she will absolutely love this Christmas, so keep reading…When it comes to females, any item of clothing is always a winner because she can never have enough, (speaking for myself of course) lol.
So ladies and gents, I have basically chosen 5 Christmas gifts for ‘HER’ that she will love and have created 4 looks out of each item.
Look 1 – Wide Leg Culottes in Blush Pink
I honestly love culottes! At first when I seen them, I wasn’t sure what I would pair them with, however the minute I tried them on, I fell in love and then the ideas just came to mind. I love how extremely lightweight they are, especially for this summer (if you are in SA of course). They are really versatile, which means that you can either wear them as I did here or dress it down with a pair of flats and a t-shirt. It comes in a lovely turquoise colour as well!
Look 2 – Plain White T-Shirt and Denim Blue Jeans
This is one look that you can’t go wrong with ladies and gents! We know that a white t-shirt and a denim blue jeans, are essential items and a must have for your closet. What I love most about this t-shirt is the tie detail in the front, definitely making that fashion statement. As for these denim jeans… they are a complete winner and compliment this look so well. I always struggle to find a good pair of denims but the minute I tried these on, it’s as though they were made for me. They are super stretchy and extremely comfortable, accentuating the body in all the right areas.
Look 3 – The Gingham Shirt
If she loves anything that is checked or striped, then this Gingham shirt definitely has her name written all over it! With this look, I really wanted to make it all about the shirt, so I just added a pair of green pants and a block heel to complete the look. You could wear this shirt with just about anything, that’s how versatile it is. And guys lastly, if she loves wearing your shirts, then she might just fall in love with this one because it’s over-sized!
Look 4 – Little Black Dress
Every girl needs an LBD in her closet! So ladies and gents you can’t go wrong by purchasing this one! The mere fact that the LBD can be worn for just about any occasion is an absolute dream. I love the flare detail at the sleeves, as well as at the bottom of the dress, as it gives great movement when you wearing it.
