How to Dress for Xmas & beyond with the Shush Festive Gift Guide

How to Dress for Christmas 2020 & Beyond

With The Shush Festive Gift Guide

We all love that feeling of finding the perfect Christmas gift for the special people in our lives, but sometimes it’s not that easy! 2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year which makes finding a thoughtful gift all the more significant as it’s one of the best ways that we can express to those we love, near or far, just how much they mean to us in the absence of a traditional celebration.

Buying pre-loved means buying something meaningful and something that shows you really care not only about the quality and the beauty of the gifts that you choose but the bigger picture. With all the events that we have gone through this year, the importance of taking care of one another and our wider world has never been starker.

All of the values that preloved represents have been laid bare this year – conscious consumerism, quality, longevity and only owning pieces that really mean something to us and that we will both use and cherish for years to come as heirloom items. With this in mind, our fashion mavens here at Shush HQ have compiled our bumper Festive Gift Guide so that you can find the perfect gift for everyone in your life.

For The Woman who has Everything

There’s only one avenue to take when it comes to the woman who has everything and that’s pure, unadulterated luxury. We have an exquisite fine line of jewellery including this flawless Vintage, 18k rose gold and diamond necklace featuring a pear shaped brilliant diamond. She will also adore this timeless iconic Chanel J12 Watch that will notch up the style points on practically any outfit.

Over in clothes and accessories, gift her with a Rex rabbit fur gilet so she can stay cosy up in style this winter or a silk camellia scarf from Chanel in warm red and brown tones with fresh white flowers. We also love this sequinned, embellished number from Jenny Packham or one of our many other stunning dresses.

The absolute must have on any women’s wish list is still the Hermes bag and this one is one of the most sought after and exceptionally rare bags with the ultimate wow factor.

For the Man who is Impossible to Buy For

Accessories are the name of the game with this g uy – think classic with a twist to play into his creative style. Cartier is always a winner – this watch which is worldwide recognised must have brand.

A silk pocket square is always a welcome gift for the style maven – we love the jagged, eye-catching pattern on this Louis Vuitton piece. If you really fancy splashing out for the special man in your life, look no further than a than the luxury understated brand Loro Paina Coat should do the job nicely or a beautiful soft leather jacket from the favourite brand Yves Saint Laurent.

For the Mother in Law

Preloved designer fashion is ideal for when you need to impress an often-tough crowd. Melt even the iciest mother-in-law’s heart with a classic designer bag from one of the world’s finest designers – you simply cannot go wrong with one of the many Hermes and Chanel bags featured in the Shush collections. Standout pieces include the Chanel ‘Rock the Corner’ flap bag with classic black quilting. She will also fall head over heels for one of our many scarves in silks and cashmere by brands such as, Chanel, Loro Piana, Hermes and many more. Or maybe an opulent Emilio Pucci beaded silk clutch.

For the One Who Loves to be Comfy

We all know that person who loves to chill out all day long from the moment they wake to the moment they roll into bed at night. Loungewear has come along in great strides in 2020 but it doesn’t need to be associated with making minimal effort; designer loungewear is made to flatter the body in all the right ways. Enjoy a look in laidback silk with these gorgeous Gucci silk joggers – cosy, comfy and still totally flattering to keep you feeling your best. Team with a classic Chinti and Parker sweater where the wool-cashmere blend and multi-coloured star print sparkle in all the right ways. For cosy and comfy but elegant and a little more dressy, try a romantic, flirty vibe with this exquisitely bohemian piece from Rochas, made in pure silk with an all-over rosebud print and red-ivory background. Extra romantic vibes come courtesy of the ruffled bodice, neck and cuffs.

For the Trendsetter

It’s always a treat buying for those people in our lives who like to go out of their comfort zone with their style. Preloved fashion takes items from all eras and walks of life – with some of the more unusual ‘80s and ‘90s style making a firm comeback in recent times, anything is game and this is your gifting opportunity to embrace the ambitious fashionista in your life.

For this category, we love the Etro floral bomber jacket with its exquisite pastel multicoloured embroidered detail, ribbed contrasting neck and cuffs and full silk lining. We’re also giving a nod to the bright and beautiful Gucci wool lurex jumper with rabbit motif and ladybird buttons, the Yves Saint Laurent love heart jacket and the Moschino couture Sims collaboration dress – it’s the stuff that pixel art dreams are made of.

For the Foodie

Your foodie friend may have swapped nights eating out in swanky restaurants for evenings cooking up a storm in their kitchen but they still want to good. The Shush collection are packed full of outfits that are beautiful to look at, easy to wear and kitchen-friendly! This Maje jumpsuit ticks all the boxes – black tones, short sleeves and super-sleek featuring floral detail and see-through applique for some pretty details. We also love the sophisticated purple tones of this Caroline Herrera dress, featuring cap sleeves, a black waist band and flattering round neck. 

When You’re Really Stuck…

We hope that our gift guide has given you some inspiration on your gifting journey. But we also know that some people are near-impossible to buy for and this year has been difficult enough - none of us want to add tricky present situations to our festive to-do list! That’s why we’ve come up with our gift cards to provide your lucky recipient with access to hundreds of the world’s best loved designers and show that you’ve chosen something meaningful by giving the gift of preloved.

We hope your festive celebrations are as special as can be! 2020 may have been one difficult year, but the best is always yet to come.
