This year, Hanukkah started on Christmas Eve and will go through New Year's day, which basically makes this holiday season crazier than ever--especially if your fam celebrates both Hanukkah and Xmas. And I know, you've just finished a crazy semester, so you have barely had time to think about holiday shopping.
Never fear. I've rounded up one awesome gift for each night of the Festival of Lights. Suggest them to your family members who are still stumped on what to get you, or pick one up for each of your BFFs.
1. The coziest scarf
Trust: ASOS's big scarves are the softest and coziest ones around. And the oversized style adds extra warmth AND extra chicness -- creating a cozy cowl out of this baby is your fastest ticket to winter street style perfection.
The heather grey shade of this scarf is so classic and versatile for any occasion. For a night out, rock it as a shawl with a sparkly dress.
2. The wear-to-every-party jumpsuit
Speaking of versatile, this subtly sparkly jumpsuit is what wardrobe dreams are made of. The tie waist, long sleeves, and wide legs are so high-fashion, and you can switch up your accessories to make this work for every occasion this winter break.
Dinner out on a chilly night with the girls? Add the scarf above and your fave ankle booties. NYE? Add the earrings below and strappy heels. Class next semester? Throw a graphic sweatshirt over it and let the pants shine, literally.
3. The perfect NYE earrings
The holiday season calls for some sparkle, and there's no easier way to add a festive touch than with a great pair of statement earrings. They also make a perfect gift, guaranteed to bring a smile to any friend's face. This tassel style is especially trendy, and the hot pink color is a fun, unexpected touch on a cold winter's night.
4. The trendiest layering piece
If you haven't already hopped on the bomber jacket bandwagon, put one on your holiday wishlist. While I'm as obsessed with the embellished, embroidered statement variety as the next girl, this solid, quilted version is the perfect basic for 2017.
The gorgeous burgundy is essentially a neutral, and this topper looks polished with everything from skinnies to a slipdress. Plus, who says you can't add your own pins and patches?
5. The coolest boots ever
These over-the-knee combat boots may look intense, but with a side zipper (read: you don't have to do up all those laces), they're an easy way to add a totally unique touch to your look.
I've always had mixed feelings on the over-the-knee boots trend, but add a little rock-and-roll and I can't say no. These boots are the answer for when you want to rock a dress on chilly days. Whether your frock is mini or maxi-with-a-slit, just add tights, pull on these babies, and go.
6. The it-girl hat
During next semester's transitional weather, you'll want to finish every look with this cute floppy hat (I'm totally obsessed with the stud detail). It looks awesome with printed tops and dresses, as you can see above, but I'd also love it with a chic, neutral coat and major earrings.
7. The outfit-maker
From the jewel tone to the literal jewels on the tag, I love everything about this bag (which also comes in four other awesome shades). With both a top handle and a crossbody strap, it's great for day or night. Let it add a luxe touch to every single look you rock this break.
8. The is-it-spring-break-yet dress
I am a floral dress addict, and not even subzero temperatures can change that. If you're already tired of the snow and slush, a springy dress is the perfect last-minute addition to your holiday wishlist.
This dress's long sleeves mean you don't have to save it till March. Layer a black tank and tights underneath, then add a chic coat and cool boots (#5, perhaps?). Talk about putting a spring in your step.
