#DMTBeautySpot #beauty

With only six weeks of 2020 left, the window to get your holiday shopping done in time is narrowing. With your partner, mom, sister, BFF, and roommate topping your list, start by thinking about the best holiday gift for her, that most important (and potentially picky) woman in your life.

From fashion presents that your impeccably-dressed best friend will love to standout roommate gifts (that you will hopefully get to borrow), we've narrowed down the most stylish gifts to give all the women on your list this year. Highlights include celebrity-approved athleisure, several buzzy fashion collaborations, and some of the season's biggest fashion trends.

Ahead, the ultimate fashion holiday gift guide.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Pangaia Slim Fit T-Shirt

The comfort-seeker on your list will love nothing more than a set from Pangaia, a trendy sustainable loungewear brand that counts Tracee Ellis Ross as a fan.

A stylish tie-dye face mask to help them get on the biggest fashion trend of the quarantine without making a DIY mess.

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Gift Set

Gift them this bright and sensual fragrance — made with notes of sweet jasmine, rich cocoa, and fresh tuberose — to let them know they’ve officially made the “good” list this year. Plus, they’ll love the shoe-shaped bottle.

Beepy Bella x Studs Earring

Celeb-adored designer Beepy Bella is known for its whimsical jewelry pieces, featuring traditional materials like pearls alongside childlike charms. Now it's easier (and more affordable) than ever to get a piece thanks to the brand's collaboration with Studs.

Beepy Bella x Studs Darling Daisy Earrings, $, available at Studs

Roxanne Assoulin x Warby Parker Sunglass Chain

If your giftee collects Roxanne Assoulin's bracelets in every color, they will love this beaded mask chain made as a result of a collaboration between the jewelry brand and sunglasses favorite Warby Parker.

SKIMS Rib Brief

With both briefs and ribbed fabrics trending, you can't go wrong with this style.

Staud x New Balance Sneakers

One of the most popular athleisure collaborations of the year, Staud x New Balance can be found on everyone from Katie Holmes (who has these exact sneakers) to Timothée Chalamet (who has the more colorful pair). The collection also features bike shorts, cropped turtlenecks, and track pants.

Staud x New Balance 327 Sneaker, $, available at Carbon38

Entireworld Socks

While Entireworld is popular with the fashion crowd for its sweatpants and sweaters, we love its ribbed socks for wearing with loafers (or the aforementioned sneakers).

Entireworld Organic Cotton Solid Socks, $, available at Entureworld

Hanifa Cardigan Dress

No brand generated more headlines during lockdown orders than Hanifa, created by Congolese designer Anifa Mvuemba — for throwing a first-of-its-kind 3-D fashion show in May. The most expensive item on this list, this wrap dress is also one that your giftee will live in all winter and spring (year after year). Bonus: There is an adorable matching style for the mini fashionista that you know.

Hanifa Miya Cardigan Dress, $, available at Hanifa

Super Smalls Ring Set

Speaking of minis, if you need a gift for a child who is prone to stealing your jewelry, this one is for them. Created by the former Elle accessories director and mom of three, Super Smalls features kids' jewelry and accessories that even the adults will fawn over.

Super Smalls Power Lunch Ring Set, $, available at Super Smalls

Everlane Tiered Dress

For fans of The Nap Dress trend.

The Chiffon Trenches By André Leon Talley

A memoir by the former Vogue editor-at-large, The Chiffon Trenches tells the story of André Leon Talley's rise to the top of the fashion journalism industry. Yes, Anna Wintour gets a mention... a few times.

Collina Strada Water Bottle

This may seem like an over-the-top gift — and at $90 for a reusable water bottle it is — but fans of sustainable fashion brand Collina Strada have wanted nothing else since they spotted this bejeweled style on its runway.

Collina Strada Green Rhinestone Water Bottle, $, available at SSENSE

Marc Jacobs x Magda Archer iPhone 11 Case

If the Harry Styles-approved sweater ($225) is out of your holiday budget, Marc Jacobs offers this iPhone case, featuring the cheeky "My Life is Crap" signage, for the "Watermelon Sugar" (and Dua Lipa) fans.

Rixo Pajama Shorts

Responsible for some of the internet's most beloved printed dresses, Rixo has now blessed fans with a loungewear line, featuring these shorts (and a nightdress!) that we wouldn't hesitate to wear out.

Mulberry And Grand Fuzzy Bucket Hat

A fuzzy bucket hat for the Emily in Paris fashion fan.

Mulberry and Grand Fuzzy Bucket Hat, $, available at Mulberry and Grand

Invivo X By Sarah Jessica Parker Rosé

For the one who still prefers the fashion of Sex and the City, Sarah Jessica Parker has collaborated on a line of wine, which includes this rosé. (There's also the actor's shoe brand, SJP, that Carrie — and Emily — would no doubt approve of.)

Invivo X by Sarah Jessica Parker Rose 2019, $, available at

Proenza Schouler Book

A self-described love letter to New York, Proenza Schouler's new coffee table book sees the making of the brand's Spring 2021 collection during the pandemic. For those interested in fashion more generally, the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s “About Time: Fashion and Duration” exhibit, which looks at the relationship between fashion and time, also comes accompanied by a coffee table book.
