Your Christmas gift from EyeFitU is sure to impress even the most style-savvy woman around. With our app, you know you’ll buy her perfect size first time. Get ready for your most on-trend and hassle-free Christmas shop yet.
The idea of finding her ‘The Perfect Dress’ may seem daunting and utterly overwhelming. May we introduce you, then, to the layered dress. She’ll love it and you can’t go wrong! This season’s easy-to-wear layered dress is working its way to staple status and will be sure to liven up her winter wardrobe. Slips are cut from luxe silk and velvet or simple cotton, then delicately layered over crew or knit tops, long-sleeved turtlenecks or the classic tee. Outfit = sorted!

Forget a cheesy Christmas jumper this year and treat her instead to some stylish knitwear. Comforting against the cold and cosying up her winter wardrobe, this is a thoughtful gift that will stand out from the rest. This season, the knitted top offers an elegant alternative to a classic shirt, offering a ladylike look. Invest in soft wool or cashmere so she feels luxurious in a polo, crew or turtleneck collar. Fitted styles are popular in mid to fine gauge fabrics.

Empower her with a new shirt for Christmas. You can’t go wrong with a classic shirt, whether she pairs hers with a sleek suit or dresses it down with raw cut jeans and smart trainers or stylish slip ons. Soft silk or crisp cottons are the fabrics of choice, with pinstripes adding a chic sartorial look for AW16. If you’re looking for something more elaborate, micro floral prints tap into the romantic, feminine mood she’ll be loving this season.
If you want to embrace the romance, the pussy-bow blouse is a girly alternative to shirts. Look out for details such as flared cuffs, ruffles, sculpted sleeves and historically influenced high-cut necklines to add newness and sophistication. Underpinning a whimsical look, lightweight chiffon, sheer lace and silk are your best options.

An absolute must-have for the holiday season, she’ll be impressed if you pick out a jumpsuit. Embrace the party spirit with plush velvet or high-shine and embellishment. The ever-stylish silhouette can flatter all shapes and sizes with the option of tailored styles, wide-leg or flared designs and plunge necklines. Her new excuse to party on!

Spoil her with a new coat to wear into the New Year. Our suggestion? The classic trench coat. She’ll love the soft, fluid proportions of this style staple, which is seen with a slightly oversized silhouette this season. Choose lightweight linens, washed denims and silks to get her spring-ready early, or opt for heavier wool mixes for a winter look. The perennial piece is given newness with enlarged outer pockets, tie closures and oversized buttons too.

If the athleisure trend is not her thing, a brand new pair of boots will be a welcomed footwear update this Christmas. Try the Western bootie, which is making waves in bold colour or with metal hardware details on classic black leather. Pointed or almond shaped toes are in, with a range of silhouettes to suit her style from low-cut to ankle-length. Shopping success!

Never have trainers been more mainstream – now she can wear them to the gym, brunch, to a gig, drinks with the girls or even to work. Treat her to a bright white new pair of Stan Smiths, or choose suede sneakers for a retro appeal. A vintage inspired shape is key here, with tones of basic black and blue to bright red and maroon favourites of street style stars around the world.

Be it an on-trend oversized jacket or straight leg jeans, denim is a Christmas gift we’re sure would be on her wish list. Upcycled denim is the style to choose for now. Think directional pieces that are spliced, patched and sewn with repositioned constructions. The statement look works across boyfriend, skinny and flared styles, as well as on jackets. Pick out pieces with hems undone and frayed to prove to her what a style-hunter you are.
On EyeFitU: LEVI’S ‘501’ jeans
The belt is a lovely piece for a Christmas gift. Put a smile on her face with SS17’s longer length belts, that are wrapped and tucked at the waist. Choose supple leathers and slim, feminine buckle designs.
Shopping for a girl who has heaps of attitude? Then sports belts are gaining traction so would be the ideal choice to ‘wow’ her. Think racer stripes or plastic clips for a new season belt update.

No matter what her style, she’ll love a new scarf for Christmas and beyond. There’s no better time to treat her to this winter wardrobe essential because there are so many trends to choose from. The fun faux fur scarf is bold and colourful this season so surprise her with colourful stripes, oversized collars or a playful design.
The neckerchief is the ideal choice for women with an edgy, retro style with pretty paisley prints aplenty.
Longer length skinny scarves are an alternative, with the catwalks showcasing them as the key item for next season. Best for the directional dresser.

It’s time to treat her. Happy shopping!
