Happy holidays, Too Hot Not to Cop readers. It’s that most wonderful time of the year: when we present our top-10 online shopping finds to help you check off items on your gift list (for your BFFs, sisters, and lady-loves). Christmas presents are all about celebrating and indulging, so while some of these items might not be the most practical finds, they’re ones that’ll surely be cherished for years to come (or at least until next Christmas). Read on, and may your shopping be merry and bright.
Feet are damn important, and you should treat the one you love to the gift of warm toes. This collaborative pair from Welsh heritage sock brand Corgi and J. Crew is not only made from supper snuggly cashmere but features a cute pink heart design as well. The ox-blood and heather-grey color combo keeps the socks from looking too childish. Available at J. Crew for $98.
These cheeky tees and sweatshirts from Amsterdam-based Zoe Karssen have been majorly popular this year. No wonder, the sayings are not only cute but the fabrics used are super soft. This T-shirt would be a perfect gift for your BFF or stylish sister. The loose “boyfriend” fit would pair well with weekend skinny jeans and the neutral, faded tones will undoubtedly make this top her go-to in 2014. Available at Zoe Karssen for $89.
Last year was all about the “arm party”, but this year comes the return of a look that’s a bit simpler. A single bracelet is all a girl needs if it’s an intricately-carved brass bangle. This one by K/LLER Collection is hand-cast and features a pyramid box chain. Available at Of A Kind for $125.
So maybe a trip to Paris at Christmas is a bit out of the question, but you can still help the babe in your life look every bit the chic French woman with this classic black-and-white striped dress. The waffle fabric is 100 percent cotton and the dress is void of major details except for a white-button enclosure at the collar. Paired with black ankle booties and simple gold jewelry and she’ll look très bien at Christmas dinner. Available at A.P.C. for $235.
There’s a good chance you want these for yourself (I know I do). Leopard print and calf hair, I mean, c’mon! These low-heeled booties are perfect for off-duty days, paired with black skinnies, a chunky knit, and a well-worn leather moto jacket. That’s the thing with a beautiful pair of shoes; you don’t need much else. Available at Net-a-Porter for $990.
Similar to when big silver hoop earrings were big in the early 2000s, tiny stackable rings are having a moment right now. The idea is to mix and match a bunch of skinny metals for a truly unique, vintage-inspired look. Pre-fab collections like these look great worn stacked or with one on each finger. The price makes these perfect stocking stuffers too. Available at Madewell for $28.
Even after Christmas, there is plenty of winter left to break out new wooly accessories. This cable-knit pom-pom beanie is classic and a fun way to add a hint of childhood nostalgia to everyday outfits. They’re available in a variety of colors, but this charcoal one will go with just about everything and look great paired with every hair color. Available at Joe Fresh for $10.
A woman can never have too many handbags, and a great bag that is eye-catching but goes with everything is a must-have. I love the roomy size of this messenger bag, which cones with short handles and a long cross-body strap. A zipper closure in gold looks luxe and keeps everything in place, and let’s just admit it, the mock-croc 100 percent leather elevates this beyond just any black bag. Available at Need Supply Co. for $440.
If the holidays are all about excess and indulgence, I can’t think of anything more excess or indulgent than fancy pajamas. Some might think, who really cares, you where these babies to sleep (and if you’re lucky, you don’t even need ‘em), so then think of this as the ultimate loungewear. The night shirt is kind of old school, and also kind of sexy (hello, no bottoms!). Available at Steven Alan for $235.
Might seem kind of silly getting someone sunglasses in the wintertime, but it’ll probably mean that they’ll think of you when they’re on a tropical vacation. These cobalt sunnies from Warby Parker are kind of wild, and the slightly translucent lenses means they can wear ‘em in the winter, even when it’s not crazy sunny, and not look like a damn fool. Available at Warby Parker for $145.
