holiday accessories gift guide created by cote boutique1. A go-to for every year. A good beanie will last you forever, and these simple cashmere beanies available in black and ivory are the perfect simple addition to your cold weather look! Also, what better way to hide your day 3 unwashed hair? (although ours is more like day 6!) 

2. A gift with a purpose (which won't be the last one on this list!) The Missio Styling Spray is perfect for the beauty girl. Missio gives back to human trafficking organizations in Wilmington and even helped to open a safe house for women to go when they need help. Their hair products are made in Wilmington and designed by hair stylist, Lorin Van Zandt, so you know they're good! Their styling spray can be used as a heat protectant before styling, as a refresh on old hair, and to add texture and shine to your 'do! 

3. A blanket scarf is the perfect gift for the girl that likes to be cozy! These giant plaid scarves go great with your sweater dresses, long sleeves and jeans, and even an oversized tee. Not to mention they go with a good cashmere beanie for extra warmth! 

4. The caffeine addict in your life will love this oversized 'Live with Purpose' mug. 100% of proceeds of this mug go toward International Sanctuary, a human trafficking organization housing survivors all over the world! 

5. The gift for your minimalist bestie. She always needs a good necklace that also gives back! Our bestselling Kana Necklace is subtle enough to layer with all your other jewels, but chic enough to wear alone. All Purpose Jewelry is handmade by survivors of human trafficking with 50% of proceeds going back to the organization. Our Premiere Collection comes with it's own gifting box, as shown, and are made up of 14K Gold and Rhodium plated pieces! 

6. The perfect accessory for the trendy girl. A silk scarf has so many uses! Whether she wants to wear as a headband, neck scarf, or tie it on to her purse for a little more flair, the silk scarf is one of the most versatile gifts of the season! 

7. The trendiest stocking stuffer is definitely a velvet scrunchie! If you didn't know the scrunchie was back, consider this your announcement. We're honestly not sure what took us so long to catch on to this 80's trend because they honestly are so much more comfortable than a hair tie, and just give your hair so much more volume! We're obsessed, and your bestie will be too!

Could you be a French It Girl? The Answer is YES

Could you be a French It Girl? The Answer is YES

We've definitely got a thing for the classics. And Parisian Style is just that. The effortless jean and tees, the relaxed sense of it all. There's something about the French It Girl that we love so much. Maybe it's because Paris is where fashion started. Maybe it's because we've looked up to French Designers like Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Christian Dior for our entire lives. Either way, the French It Girl always comes across as cool, confident, and chic. We can't pinpoint exactly why we love it so much, but we are definitely inspired. 

We keep seeing the same rules for French style such as 1) keep your palette neutral with earthy and rust colors. When doing color, stick to classic colors like navy and red. 2) stick with simple patterns like polka dots, gingham, and small florals that will always be in style. 

Whether your French style icon is Brigitte Bardot or newbie Thylane Blondeau, attaining French It Girl status is easy with this killer wardrobe! Keep reading for our choices of the French It Girl staples and how to incorporate them into your own wardrobe, then shop our favorites directly from Côte. 

1. Straight Leg Jeans

A basic tucked in Tee with lived-in straight leg jeans are a classic French style that can easily be incorporated into your own wardrobe. The easiest style to pull off when you're in a fashion rut (it happens to all of us). Find a vintage tee in the bottom of your drawer and tuck her in to some chic high waist jeans. Go for a minimalist look paired with loafers, or dress her up with a bold heel and velvet bag.

Jean Stella Skinny Indigo - Free People $78


2. Summer Dress

A long bold pattern is the essence of a French It Girl. The best part about the dress being the star of the show? Minimal accessories is key for this look. Throw on your favorite handmade gold pendant (like our Coin Necklace) and you're good to go. You can easily throw on a denim jacket and some white sneakers for a more modern look, or go simple with a bucket bag and cat eye sunglasses. 

Shop our fave Midi here: 

Caldasi Midi Dress - Free People $128

3. Patterned Dress


French Girl style is a classic, and polka dots are equally a classic. You can never go wrong with a simple print that never goes out of style. Simple details like buttons and a pendant necklace are great for a chic look. Or channel your inner Chloe Bleinc and pair with bold booties!

Kindred Button Front Dress - MinkPink $98

Some other must haves for attaining the French It Girl style are espadrilles, gold jewelry, a straw boater hat, and a good bucket bag. So pick your faves and incorporate them into your own wardrobe and never worry about being out of style.
