This season, vests are far more than an outerwear piece to keep you warm — they are key accessories. The bonus is that they are also quite easy to buy in the correct size, so get vested! We love the sleek and sporty look of the metallic quilted vest for the fashionable females on our lists ($100; Nike), while the glam-loving girls will want a fun faux fur vest to wear with everything they own.Trend Tip: Vests are not just for the ladies! The men on your list will also be delighted with a rugged, outdoor-type vest from manufacturers like Arcteryx or L.L. Bean — and you can find vests for kids at every major specialty chain.Key Looks
Who doesn't love (and need) a brand new key chain? With so many fabulous styles to choose from — and at so many affordable price points — this is a great gift for everyone on your list including your office mate. Make it personal with a photo holder ($38, Coach) and go for all that glitters with a rhinestone closure. For the label-checking crowd, get the latest status look in a keychain from Fendi or Louis Vuitton.Trend Tip: The beauty junkie will love a keychain with a lip gloss attached — find them at Sephora from Hard Candy, Dior and more.Charmed, I'm SureThe gift of a charm is both a piece of jewelry and a talisman of good wishes (and good taste).
