IRC teamed up with our friends at Boboli to do a series of gift guides for the most challenging people on your list.
The first up is the Ultimate Cool Girl-- the kind who walks down the street and makes you ask yourself "who is she?" If you have a Cool Girl on your list, you probably know that she is always on the cutting edge and can be seemingly impossible to shop for...until now, that is.
Boboli styled a look to suit the spirit of this person whom we all have in our lives. They went with some wide leg denim from Margiela, chunky Valentino boots, a KASSL Editions coat, a Massimo Alba scarf, and some beautiful gold hoops from Hirotaka, which are sold individually so she can style them in whichever of her multiple ear piercings she chooses.
Whether you're shopping for a cool girl in your life, or you simply want to become one yourself, Boboli has no shortage of inspiration. There's nothing I love more than walking into the store and asking the girls to dress me-- we have so much fun and I leave feeling confident and stylish. If you're not local to Vancouver, they recently launched ecommerce and have a beautiful new website that I catch myself browsing daily.
Here are some IRC picks for the coolest girls on your gift list:
1. Lex Pott Twist Candle ($54)
These candles popped up all over instagram and they are notoriously hard to find. Scandinavian designer Lex Pott reinvented the classic pillar candle by twisting it into its own candle base so there is no stand required. I love giving these as a gift because they look beautiful in any home and have no scent, so they appeal to everyone. If she's extra funky, opt for the fluorescent orange or pink shades.
2. ROÉN Beauty Eye Shadow Palette ($56)
These palettes have made glitter cool again. Their environmentally-friendly reflex create a unique, wet-looking shimmer on the lid that can be played up or down. Each palette has four harmonious shades that look just as good on their own as they do together. I like to apply them with my fingers for an effortless vibe.
3. Touchland Hand Sanitizer ($18)
Nothing says you care about someone in 2020 quite like giving them hand sanitizer as a gift, and these cute mists from Touchland certainly up the ante. Not only do they come in a bunch of delicious scents (no cheap tequila smells here), but they also look chic enough to have one on display.
4. DedCool Unisex Vegan Fragrance ($60-$170)
Gendered fragrance is a thing of the past and DedCool's scents somehow manage to be simultaneously unique and universally appealing. If your Cool Girl scoffs at Santal, or if you want to impress her by showing her something new, something from this ultra-cool LA fragrance brand is a perfect choice.
5. VENN Age-Reversing All-In-One Concentrate ($112-$245)
VENN is a unisex Korean skincare that seeks to inspire minimalism in our skincare routines. This results-driven multi-purpose product can replace all of the steps in your routine after cleansing. Nothing is cooler than an efficient product that gets the job done without requiring you to spend too much time looking in the mirror.
