Whether you belong to that group of far-sighted people that started in September, or to those who wait until Christmas Eve to put pen to paper, the list of Christmas gifts has always been the most difficult list to make.
Nevertheless, at least when it comes to gifts for ladies, the fear of getting it wrong can easily be overcome. How? If you have not found what you are looking for in our past post, choose to target her wardrobe, which for us women can never have enough in it, even when it is bursting at the seams.
So here are the garments to look for, while drawing on the Marina Rinaldi collection. Either to give as a gift or, why not, buy for yourself.
− A scarf or a pair of gloves. We all have plenty of these and we’d all like to have more. In different colours, to choose from whenever we need to, and mix and match with ease. Better still if in precious yarns, like soft, warm cashmere, and in bright colours, to cheer you up and liven up those gloomy winter days. And if you want to amaze her with a trendy gift, choose purple: expressed on a pair of gloves, like those in suede offered by Marina Rinaldi, it becomes an elegant touch for a workday and adds a touch of light to illuminate a winter evening.
− A foulard. It is the great return of the season with a sophisticatedly retro flavour, perfect for those who love the vintage look. It must be in silk, small, and if worn around the neck with a small knot it becomes a chic detail. Or it can be used as a hair-band, framing the face.
− A little black dress. We recommend this, not just because this year it is centre stage, but, above all, because the little black dress has never gone out of fashion. And if you are looking for a gift that is “forever”, it is much better than diamonds. It looks good on anyone – we will never tire of repeating it – so much so that this winter Marina Rinaldi has paid tribute to it by creating countless versions.
− Boots. We all love these. They are the perfect combination of comfort and elegance, they have saved us during our daily excursions without having to forsake style, and they make us feel good on any occasion. So why not give them as a gift? From ultra flat with details in patent leather to country style, with flaps or straps, choosing from the Marina Rinaldi collection becomes almost a game.
− A precious garment. This could be a warm detail, like a fox fur collar, that gives a touch of softness to the austerity of a suit or defines the edges of a warm woollen cape coat. Or a dinner-jacket with its masculine allure, to be paraded at one of the many Christmas parties.
The choice is not so predictable, but the result is: a real success.
