We all have that one friend (or several, TBH) who always shows up to every event dressed to the damn nines. They’re the kind of friend who always knows what’s trending—and how to wear even the wildest pieces without looking like a complete lunatic. This holiday season, your most stylish friend deserve the cutest fashion-lover gifts that the retail world has to offer. Whether you know their style like the back of your hand, or want to surprise your fashionista friends with something they might never expect, I’ve got your back with these fashion-forward gift ideas.

While style is a very personal thing, even majorly unique fashionistas occasionally succumb to current trends. Chic decor, pearl jewelry, tinted sunnies—they’re all “in” right now, and odds are, your most stylish friends are (at least somewhat) into them. If you’ve been seeing your friends wear certain trends, adding to their collection with a gift in the same vein is always a smart move.

Say your stylish BFF is always wearing earrings—maybe they don’t leave the house without accessorizing! Finding the perfect unique huggies with the right amount of nostalgic flair to give them as a gift is both thoughtful and stylish. All you have to do is pay attention to what your fashion-forward friends have been donning, and keep the trends alive with your holiday gifts.

Of course, finding the perfect fashion-lover gift is easier said than done. But as a fashion girl myself, I’m here to help! Below, you’ll find fashionable gift ideas that any trendsetter will love. Whether it’s a chic piece your friend can keep forever in their home or an accessory sure to be the cherry on top of any outfit, these fashion-forward gifts are about to be your saving grace.

Faux Patent Leather Trench Coat

There’s nothing better than when two incredibly popular trends combine to make for a truly iconic piece of clothing. Case in point: this faux leather trench coat.

So, you can pretty much guarantee that your fashion lover friend will love this cool-weather essential from Forever 21.
