We are just days away from Christmas. Time flies, doesn’t it? Have you completed your Christmas shopping yet? Well, even if you haven’t, fret not, because last minute shopping, especially with retailers such as SheIn, can be just as rewarding, if not more, thanks to their Christmas sale!
In collaboration with SheIn, I have put together a Christmas gift guide comprising some of my favourite minimalist pieces from their winter collection. These classic picks are great for the upcoming festivities and also double up as wardrobe workhorses. Looking stylish while braving the cold isn’t such a tall order after all, and the best part is, you know your girlfriends will thank you for it. 

1. Long Coats

  I have come to realize that one of the best ways to avoid looking like a dumpling during winter is to “break up” your silhouette to create curves. Hence, my first pick is this long grey coat that drops all the way down to my shins because it allows you to do just that and keep warm at the same time. If your goal is to shake up your girlfriend’s wardrobe, this is the gift for her.

How do you break up a silhouette beneath the coat? The easiest way to go about doing so is to pair a mini dress with thigh high boots. These turtleneck sweater dresses go perfectly with thigh high boots to accentuate your femininity.

2. Sweaters with a Twist

Sweaters are a must-have in everyone’s winter wardrobe, but if the words safe and boring are not in your fashion dictionary, sweaters with an unexpected twist would be right up your alley. If your girlfriend is just like you, surprise her with a sweater with lace details just like this!

3. Blanket Scarves

Blanket scarves instantly add interest to any outfit as they can be worn both as a scarf as well as a shawl.  These make wonderful gifts as they are so incredibly versatile. 
I wore this soft and cozy blanket fringe scarf from SheIn as a shawl over a black lapel double breasted coat to lend a rocker chic vibe to the otherwise casual ensemble.
Alternatively, you can also jazz up a classic winter jacket with the same scarf for a more elegant, polished look.
