With so many amazing products - some old, some new - on the shelves right now and just in time for the holiday season, it seems a good time to whittle down the list to a few sensible, chic choices. That's easier said than done, of course, but our list of fashion and beauty essentials to buy now is a good start - especially since they all come in at under $100!
Much has been made about the famous TOMS slip-on shoe, but the new glitter versions
($53.95) are really worth the hype. Sure, they're not meant to be worn everywhere, but imagine wearing these pink sparklers while entertaining close family and friends at home. They're just festive enough - and more importantly, they're incredibly comfy!
If you and your dearest friend both own iPhones, you'll love this new gift set from Rebecca Minkoff. The Best Friends iPhone Case
($68) includes two cases etched with the famous BFF broken hearts on the backs - one labeled "best," the other "friends." What a cute way to "stay connected" no matter the distance!
Arm warmers add an extra layer of warmth to your winter wardrobe, and some come in especially handy as alternatives to gloves while driving. These MICHAEL Michael Kors arm warmers
($45.99), for example, can be pulled over the hands for comfort - and they also happen to bring some edge to your look, courtesy of their studded design!
With its vintage-inspired design, this ASOS double-wrap watch
($53.91) recalls the simple elegance of a bygone era. Though it would be right at home with, say, a flapper dress and T-strap Mary Janes, you can keep it modern with a structured sheath or even use it to contrast an edgy night-out ensemble.
Josie Natori for just a few dollars and some change? The very thought is practically mind boggling. Thanks to the luxury designer's collaboration with Target, though, it's possible - and right in time for the holidays. This Josie Natori for Target push up bra
($19.99) is a real steal.
Apparently size isn't ALWAYS everything. Sephora by OPI packed its Glimmer Wonderland set
($48) with 18 miniature sized bottles of its famed nail polish - and the impression it leaves is absolutely astounding. With hues that range from frivolous and fearless to prim and posh, the set offers something for everyone (and they're great stocking stuffers if you want to spread the love!).
The collar, and nothin' but the collar - that's what you get with Victoria's Secret's Faux Fur Collar
($68). It's a clip-on accessory that rests comfortably over your coat and adds both warmth and elegance to your winter look.
