Eva Chen’s Totally Rad Gifting Tip

You know that feeling of holiday dread? It pops up around this time every year. That moment when you’ve perused every site and hit every sale, but you still don’t have the just-right gift for those extra-special loved ones on your list. Sound about right? Well, fortunately for you (and us), we popped by Coach and Lucky’s (with special guest Karlie Kloss!) style Q&A yesterday in New York City to grab the perfect present idea — straight from the magazine’s super-stylish EIC Eva Chen.
And, what is it? A sweater. (Eva adores turtlenecks like the Coach one she’s rocking here.) But, seriously — a sweater? While that might seem a little boring and generic at first, it's really quite the opposite. Explains Chen, “When you give someone shoes or clothes, it’s like they’re on you — hugging you.” That’s what we call genius. Give a knit, write that little note on the card, and you’re golden.
Now, while this editor credits her best shopping finds to outlet stores in other parts of the country, like her go-to spot in Palm Springs (because people shopping locally are looking for different qualities in their clothes, whether it be for climate or style), we’ve rounded up 10 giftable cozy sweaters you can buy right here, right now to check off the rest of your list. And, who knows? Maybe Chen’s good bud Karlie can expect these warm “sartorial hugs” from her come Christmas. Here’s hoping.
