Christmas GIFT GUIDE

November 15 2007

Clothe a friend this Christmas
BY MAGDALENA SZULC Clothes make for a great Christmas gift if you know a particular outfit that someone wants, or else you know that person's taste in clothes really well. If you know a loved one has her heart set on a nice jumper or an expensive pair of jeans you know she won't be able to afford, why not help out? If it's within your price range and you were going to spend that much money anyway, at least you know your present will be spot on. If the item is over the amount of money you were hoping to spend, you can always purchase gift vouchers. Get a voucher for the shop that stocks the outfit and you'll make it easier for her to get her most-wanted garment. As Christmas occurs in winter, you might want to take that into account when choosing an outfit as a gift. You can choose from a wide variety of warm, cosy jumpers, tops, trousers, skirts, woollen dresses, boots, jackets, coats, vests, scarves, hats, and gloves. If you're not sure what to go for, do a little research first and try to find out as much as you can about that person's taste, without making it too obvious. Before you set out shopping, make sure you have a good idea about what colours and styles your gift's recipient prefers, and last but not least, what size she is. Having that done and dusted, you can hit the shops in search of the perfect outfit. Remember to try not to fall for the first item that catches your eye, but allow yourself a little time to find something suitable. First impressions count, no doubts about that, but sometimes, upon second encounter, things seem different and we notice details we didn't earlier on. Besides, you can always go back to your first choice if you decide it was your best option. If you don't feel comfortable shopping for items like skirts, trousers, or tight-fitting tops, there are safe alternatives as well like scarves, shawls, hats, or all sorts of accessories. When you decide to go for a scarf, a good idea is to look for matching gloves and a hat. Always remember to keep the personal tastes of the person you're buying for in mind.

From casual glamour to cool sophistication, visit Mexx this season where you can mix and match to create a look that suits every occasion.
