Who doesn’t love a summertime wedding? The food, the booze, the overall merriment that goes with celebrating holy matrimony… But the dress codes that come along with all those summer wedding invitations aren’t always so clear. ‘Black Tie Optional’?

With a Spice Girls themed musical in the works, and the resurgence of all-girl singing groups (thank you K-pop!), not to mention successful careers for many of the original group members, it’s clear that the Spice Girls are as relevant today as ever.
Approximately 1.5 decades since Geri, Mel B, Mel C, Victoria, and Emma made “girl power” a thing, the most awesome girl group in the world ever seems to be influencing wearable style in a big way – big as in super-crazy-tall platform shoes. Platform boots, platform sandals, platform sneakers… It’s almost like every pre-teen girl who spent hours unsuccessfully trying to attach styrofoam blocks to the bottoms of her shoes is finally being rewarded for her extreme efforts. Wait – no one else did that?

Having your name or initials emblazoned on something never gets old. It goes back to that pride you felt back in third grade, when writing your name into your favorite books sent a statement to the world: “This is mine.” (And if you’re like me, you also drew a unicorn and stars for good measure) As far as gifts go, something personalized or custom-designed shows that you put a bit of effort into it, when you could totally just buy an iTunes gift card.
With that in mind, we gathered a bunch of customizable gift ideas at various price points. Whether your recipient is into fashion or not, here are ten ideas for cool custom gifts. Click through to check them out.
Thanksgiving is a notoriously hard holiday to dress for because it requires sitting at a dinner table for hours with relatives who you only see once a year while simultaneously trying to consume unreasonable amounts of food and/or liquor. This presents a unique problem: dressing to impress your distant family while maintaining a level of comfort that is conducive to eating and sitting for long periods of time.
While we all know Thanksgiving isn’t the time to break out our best Carine Roitfeld-inspired look–too tight for face-stuffing!–finding a fashionable alternative to sweats can be difficult. We’ve pulled together the most stylish items that are comfy, chic, and won’t disturb your proper Grandma. (So don’t wear your Balenciaga Darth Vader visor, ok?)
Of course our list includes Stella McCartney, the legendary mixer of casual and elegant, our favorite button downs from Madewell, a hat trick of cute shoes, and a Céline t-shirt–because a girl can dream, right?
Check out all the Thanksgiving-friendly options in our slideshow!
