To kick things off, we’re turning the spotlight on a true fashion fanatic: the Up-and-Comer. Whether she’s an aspiring editor, stylist, or designer, she is known for her rising talent and impeccable sense of style-much like Chloe Moretz! In addition to her vast knowledge of the coolest collaborations and of-the-moment trends, she has an appreciation for little luxuries, like a Rodarte t-shirt or Kenzo keychain. We’ve got all of that and more in today’s roundup, plus, you’ll be happy to know that everything in this story is under $150. Read on for all of our suggestions and don’t miss today’s slideshow filled with even more amazing and affordable gifts for the Up-and-Comer!
What to Buy
Bass x Rachel Antonoff Maebird Oxfords ($129) in Black/Clear
The Up-and-Comer is always up to speed on the latest collaborations, making these adorable Bass x Rachel Antonoff oxfords the ideal gift. Crafted from black patent leather and clear vinyl, the menswear-inspired shoes have a modern look that is completely on-point. We love them in black, but they’re also available in a playful mix of teal, nude, and yellow too.
Kenzo Gri-Gri Key Ring ($60)
This stylephile may have her eye on the season’s must-have RTW pieces, but little designer luxuries make her swoon too. Keeping that in mind, we think this Kenzo tiger keychain has the Up-and-Comer’s name all over it.
Rodarte Rohearte Text Tee ($115)
Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s witty logo tees are a fashion world favorite, and we’re confident the Up-and-Comer will heart this one too. It’s incredibly soft and will make the perfect addition to what is surely an already amazing t-shirt collection. She’ll be in good company too: Kirsten Dunst, Rihanna, and Dakota Fanning have all been spotted in versions of this must-have tee.
M.A.C. Nail Polish ($16) in Everything That Glitters
The Up-and-Comer loves a playful manicure, which means she is constantly experimenting with the season’s newest lacquers. A polish that shimmers, like M.A.C.’s Everything That Glitters, is right up her alley. The deep purple hue contains flecks of multicolored glitter and a pearlescent finish that changes colors depending on the light.
2ME Gold Studs and Leather iPhone Cover ($133)
Just like the Up-and-Comer, this leather iPhone cover is equal parts edgy and chic. Plus, the quilted design hits on a major trend for fall-another small touch she is sure to appreciate.
Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren Skinny Stretch Legging Pant ($98)
A fun and fearless fashion girl at heart, the Up-and-Comer often embraces bold, look-at-me pieces. Printed pants, like these skinny corduroy leggings by Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren, certainly fall under that category. Even better: the artisanal motif is in perfect keeping with the season’s baroque trend.
BCBGMaxazria Studded Retro Headphones ($68)
When it comes to today’s giftee, no detail goes unnoticed, so we’re positive she’ll dig these uber-stylish headphones. Thanks to the luxurious studding, listening to music has never looked so chic!
Madewell Letterman Sweater-Jacket ($138)
Chances are the Up-and-Comer in your life is pining after a varsity jacket-the outerwear has, after all, reached wardrobe essential status this season-so why not bring a smile to her face with this comfy version from Madewell? The sporty staple will fast become her closet go-to.—Jessica Baker
OVM by James Jean Lyrical Printed Clear Pouch ($95)
Featuring one of James Jean’s awe-inspiring illustrations-the designer was a former DC Comics artist-this stylish carrier can double as a makeup bag or striking clutch. If the Up-and-Comer doesn’t already know about Jean’s covetable line of jewelry, scarves, and other accessories, we can assure you she will quickly become a fan after spotting this pouch.
