All the viral and buzzworthy styles to put at the top of your list.

If you think about it, highlight reels dominate our everyday life. How many times have you gone to YouTube in search of your favorite athlete’s top moments? As we approach the end of year, endless highlight posts pop up on our feeds, marking the best of the best moments from the year past. The holiday season also has its own type of highlight reel: the gift guide. And I’ll be the first to admit, I get hooked on these when it comes to shopping. When there are so many things on your mind as the holidays approach, the thoughtful curation of a “best of the year” gift guide makes it easy and effortless to shop for everyone and anyone. 

So with December fast approaching, skip the long checkout lines and endless online scrolling. It’s time to focus on the highlights from each category so your holiday shopping is as easy as a click of  “Buy Now”. We spent the last year searching for the top products to write about on StockX, the trends to try, and the most searchable brands to share on TikTok. So, take it from us that these highlight reels are carefully curated and well vetted. Starting with accessories, here are the most popular, viral, and buzzworthy bags, belts, jewelry, and wallets that anyone will love this holiday season. 


GG Marmont Matelasse Mini Bag

If you really want to impress a loved one (or are in the market for a #selfcare gift), the GG Marmont Matelasse Mini Bag is the perfect choice. Searches for Gucci are continuing to grow on StockX, proving that the Italian brand is hotter than ever (even with the departure of Creative Director Alessandro Michele). The fiery red color is on-trend for the season, while the baguette shoulder bag design plays into the viral Y2K nostalgia craze. My favorite part is that it comes with a longer chain strap so you can easily take this handbag from shoulder to crossbody. It’s currently below retail so get it while you can.

Miu Miu Wander Matelasse Nappa Leather Mini Hobo Bag

This next handbag is for all the trendsetters on your list. Thanks to founder Miuccia Prada’s consistent vision and ability to create designs that connect with Gen Z, Miu Miu has officially just been crowned the World’s Hottest Brand as of Q3 2023. One look at any of Miu Miu’s runway shows from this year and it’s easy to see why. Miu Miu has taken over the fashion conversation with its youthful approach to femininity, seen in styles including their viral ballet flats, school uniform-inspired knits, and micro mini skirts. Get in on the hype this holiday season with Miu Miu’s popular Wander Matelasse Nappa Leather Mini Hobo Bag. Reinterpreted every season, the handbag is an iconic style in the Miu Miu catalog, featuring high quality leather with a three-dimensional design effect. The mini hobo shape fuses Y2K inspiration with modern elegance, defining the Miu Miu aesthetic of cool-girl femininity. 

Diesel 1DR Shoulder Bag

One of the most viral handbags of the past year is the Diesel 1DR Shoulder Bag. Thanks to new Creative Director Glenn Martens and his modern approach to the Diesel aesthetic, the Y2K brand has made one of the most talked-about comebacks in the fashion world. The 1DR Shoulder Bag is Martens’ shining moment so far during his Diesel era. The reimagined Diesel “D” takes on a new, futuristic shape on the flap. While the structured build and mirrored silver color play into the iconic Y2K grungecore aesthetic of the brand. Kylie Jenner and Megan Thee Stallion prove this bag is more than just an accessory; it’s a sign of the times.

Wallets & Card Cases

Goyard Saint Sulpice

A universal accessory gift that even the hard-to-shop-for will love is a card case. Think about it: it’s an item that is just as much needed as it is wanted. High fashion labels also have a lot of card cases in their catalogs, making it a more affordable gift option that still feels luxurious.  A highlight for this holiday season is the Goyard Saint Sulpice card case in green. This style has been a top-seller on the site for quite some time and for good reason. The exterior is made out of durable canvas and is monogrammed with the Goyard logo. I love the pattern because it feels intentionally part of the design, effortlessly balancing logomania with subtle sophistication. The green version looks festive for the holiday season, but the case comes in a variety of palettes to choose from. 

Louis Vuitton Key Pouch

I received this Louis Vuitton Key Pouch as a gift many years ago and I have to say, it’s still going strong as my favorite gift ever. I use it every single day and the quality of the leather looks as good as new even after all of these years. The compact size makes it so easy for me to fit it into any handbag or clutch I’m carrying on a night out. Not to mention the key clip is an added bonus. If you don’t feel like carrying a big bag (or any bag at all) you can clip it to the handle of a micro mini bag or even the belt loop of your jeans. This Louis Vuitton Key Pouch is not just a great gift; it’s an accessory essential you’ll love forever.

Gucci Bifold Wallet

I love a good logomania moment when it comes to wallets. It’s the best type of accessory to really show off your favorite brand, as the more compact size gives your look a touch of loud luxury without going overboard. The Gucci Bifold Wallet is an accessory highlight to put at the top of your wishlist. I love the classic Gucci logo monogram against the Beige Ebony tone. It looks vintage and classic. When opened, the wallet features two bill compartments and six card slots, giving you all the space for your everyday essentials.


OFF-WHITE Virgil Square Frame Sunglasses

Some accessories trend for a season then fade into obscurity. While there are those special few that trend for the same season, then continue to be a top seller, becoming an instant classic. The OFF-WHITE Virgil Square Frame Sunglasses fall into this second category. These sunglasses effortlessly merge a retro shape with modern details, seen in the OFF-WHITE logo and thicker build. The grey-tinted shades take these glasses to a whole new level, adding a quirky touch that makes them stand out from the rest of classic black frames. 

Louis Vuitton LV Clash Square Sunglasses

With a similar shape to the OFF-WHITE sunglasses above, it’s clear that square frames are a top trend this year. While the OFF-WHITE pair is perfect for any streetwear obsessed, the LV Clash Square Sunglasses are ideal for the luxury lovers in your life. I love the pop of gold hardware in the logo, giving the sunglasses an elegant touch. The sturdy rectangular shape still keeps these frames casual and cool for daytime wear.

Belts & Scarves

Gucci Double G Leather Belt

There was once a time when Gen Z declared logo belts were out (and Millennials were stylishly confused everywhere). But if there’s anything we know about fashion and TikTok at this point, it’s that trends and conversations are always shifting. So Millennials rejoice, the logo belt is back thanks to the “Old Money” aesthetic in fashion. I can’t think of a more classic logo belt than the Gucci Double G. It’s been a timeless staple since its release and takes any casual outfit to the next level. So case in point: don’t lose your sight on the timeless wardrobe staples. While trends come and go, the classics live on forever.

Ferragamo Reversible And Adjustable Gancini Belt

I can’t decide what I love most about this belt. The fact that it’s Ferragamo (obvious) or because it comes in two colors due to the reversible side (genius). It’s like getting two belts for the same price (#girlmath). The Gancini Belt is a Quiet Luxury style from the brand that focuses on a timeless look with the classic Ferragamo buckle and smooth calf leather. The belt comes with a dual finish, so you can decide between black or brown based on the look of the day.


Burberry The Classic Check Cashmere Scarf

If you can tell from this highlights list, top accessory gifts focus on the classics. Yes trendy picks are good for the season, but the trick with accessory gifting is to choose timeless staples you’ll keep (and actually wear) forever. It makes accessories well worth the investment. The Burberry Check Cashmere Scarf is no exception (it even has “The Classic” in the name). Along with a trench coat, it’s one of the trademarks of the British brand. With the temperatures continuing to drop, this cozy season essential is a thoughtful and stylish gift for the holidays.

Jewelry & Watches

Chanel Crystal Pearl CC Earrings

As you get older you realize the smaller the box, the better the gift. I mean who doesn’t love opening a jewelry box to find something sparkly inside. Especially when that box comes with a double C for Chanel. The Crystal Pearl CC Earrings are a top highlight for the holidays. The base is made with gold hardware so you get hints of gold in the light under the crystals. My favorite part is the pearl embellishments. They make these Chanel earrings look antique and truly one-of-a-kind.

Casio Analog MTP1302D-2A2V

There are some gifts that are flashy and fun, while there are others that are more meaningful and go the distance. Watches stylistically balance the two categories, making it an exciting yet thoughtful gift for the holiday season. Casio has been a top brand on StockX, with its affordable prices and vast options to choose from. My all-time favorite is the Analog MTP1302D-2A2V version with the Tiffany-inspired blue face. The pop of color gives this budget-friendly watch a luxurious touch.

Swatch x Omega Bioceramic Moonswatch Mission to the Moon

Released in March 2022 as one of the 11 styles in the Swatch x Omega collaboration, the Bioceramic Moonswatch Mission to the Moon is a stand-out silhouette. The watch features a velcro strap, all white hands and tachymeter scale, quartz movement, and high quality finishes. The coolest part about this watch is it features superluminova throughout, so you can read the time even in the dark. It’s the ideal watch for the person on your list who’s fashion-forward and tech-savvy.
