With her addictive blog Neon Blush, effortlessly edgy ensembles, and highly photogenic life, the California cutie presents the kind of totally sexy, definitely nonchalant, and 100% inspiring style we covet. Because we could all use a little help during the holidays, we got Ong to reveal her favorite, comfy, eye-catching statement piece, then create three crazy-chic looks around it. So, whether you need some sartorial inspiration of your own, or — three weeks 'til Christmas alert! — fab gift ideas for the lazy-girl stylista in your life, click on.
"I love the fun, flirty look of these ultra-skinny tuxedo leggings. They're chic, subtly shimmery, and the tuxedo stripe makes them a total statement piece — it's the easiest way to spruce up any outfit for the holidays, and the seasons to come. But the best thing about these jeggings is that they’re totally comfortable — something most girls can agree is a top priority!"
American Eagle Tuxedo Jegging, $49.95, available at American Eagle.
"Every girl wants to be comfortable, but look fabulous, right? With these jeggings, even the most casual outfit looks chic. A comfy sweater is perfect for a busy day — this one is so cute with its subtle peplum silhouette and these boots add just the right amount of height and style. The busier the day, the bigger the bag! This hobo is perfect — roomy, but not too bulky, and the shape makes it very chic...definitely not your ordinary school bag. And every girl needs a trusty lip moisturizer. This one from Fresh feels great on the lips, and is a beautiful, semi-sheer tint of rose pink."

"Any working girl would appreciate a chic gift set, complete with comfy jeggings appropriate for her 9-5. Pair 'em with this pretty pleated blouse and bold blazer — the perfect office statement piece. When in the office, IT shoes are a must! This chic, muted blue pump perfectly complements the jeggings' sheen. And at work, a little red goes a long way. Tarte's lip stain adds just enough color to keep you looking pretty and refreshed, and lasts almost the entire day without needing a touch-up."

"You can't go wrong with a little shine for a night downtown. This Tibi cami is classy with a pinch of sexy, and offsets the edginess of the AE jeggings perfectly. These crystal-embellished sandals are fun and flirty without being over-the-top. Complete the look with a biker jacket. I love that this one's just a tad oversized. You can never go wrong with a leather jacket for a night out — instantly cool. And an electric clutch is just right...a classic style, but in this bold and bright color, it screams to be noticed (which is the point of dressing up to go out, right?)."
