We Picked The Latest & Greatest So You Can Come Correct With The Best Gifts For Yourself

The Holidays are a special time of year. A time to unwind, make memories with family and friends, practice gratitude for all the blessings this past year, and — naturally — your best opportunity to wear the most absolutely primo fits to show off how good of a year you had.

Look, I’m just trying to call a spade a spade. You know you want to come correct when back home for the holidays.

It should be noted that your author is blasting this guide out while wearing KITH basketball shorts, a dirty ALD tee, and Malbon x Lusso golf slippers, so your boy knows fashion. I’ve done the dirty work for you and scoured the StockX marketplace for the best holiday heat you need. So all you have to do now is sit back, enjoy some laughs, and shop away.

Nike x Off-White Air Presto

An oldie but a goodie, like holiday ham or texting your exes. The Nike x Off-White Air Presto is one of the most popular shoes on StockX, designed by the late great Virgil Abloh and a part of his original “The Ten” collection.

The shoe is made of white mesh and has a black Swoosh on the side. It also features a quote from Michael Jordan on the tongue that says, “I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.” This shoe is perfect for the holiday season because it’s the equivalent of driving a new Tesla into your neighborhood bar on Black Wednesday and yelling “LOOK AT ME, BUT NOT TOO OBVIOUSLY”.

Aime Leon Dore Rico Shirt

The Aime Leon Dore Rico Shirt is a must-have for any holiday party. This shirt is made of 100% cotton and features a button-down collar, chest pocket, and “ALD” logo on the pocket.

Now, let’s be honest you will be either very cold or very embarrassed you haven’t been hitting the gym like you should (especially if you’re skipping chest day).  However, this shirt for sure gives off an air of confidence that says “I’m not just here for the eggnog, I’m here to take over”.

Off-White Virgil Square Frame Sunglasses

The Off-White Virgil Square Frame Sunglasses are the perfect accessory for any holiday party. Yes, you will most likely be indoors, but here’s the thing about wearing sunglasses inside. Everyone pretends it’s a bad look, but at the same time, everyone wishes they could pull it off. I’m here to tell you that it’s not that hard – just embrace your haters, and the lack of depth perception.

These iconic sunglasses feature a square frame and blue lenses. The sunglasses also have the word “OFF” printed on the left lens and the word “WHITE” printed on the right lens.  The sunglasses come with a leather case that has the Off-White logo printed on it.

Prada Raffia Tote Bag

Sure, anyone worth their salt has a tote bag collection, but this one hits different. You can keep your New Yorker and trendy Everlane bags in your 200 sq. foot apartment. In the words of Dorit (shout out my Bravo gang) this Prada Tote is pure “chic.”

This bag is made of raffia and features a metal logo on the front, boasting two handles and a detachable shoulder strap.  This one is perfect for the holiday season because it can be used as a purse for sneaking snacks into a vegan party, obnoxiously carrying the cheapest gifts to your in-laws, or even a carry-on for your “I need to escape my family” tropical getaway. It’s also big enough to fit all of your holiday shopping, which is always a plus.

So there you have it — all the holiday heat you want and need for the holiday season. Be sure to stay tuned for more great holiday shopping content from StockX. And, as always, Happy Shopping!
