Fashion gifts can be tricky — what if you get the wrong size, or misjudge your giftee’s vibe altogether? Still, nothing pleases a self-professed clothes horse quite like new swag. So, here are the best fashion gifts and (nearly) foolproof style finds for the person who hasn’t stopped dressing up in lockdown.

Lululemon pullover, $178, lululemon.com
