18 Luxe Gifts for Your Streetwear-Obsessed Friend

If your friend is anything like mega-stylist Dianne Garcia, they’ll go crazy over these gifts.

By: Jodi Taylor

We’ve all got one of those super dope friends who always has the perfect, effortless mix of designer and streetwear on. While they may not call their 9-to-5 styling the likes of Kendrick Lamar, SZA, and Schoolboy Q like our ultimate girl crush Dianne Garcia does, we’re going to guess they’d be just as hard to buy a gift for. After all, what do you get someone who has intimidatingly good taste? Taking inspo directly from the cool and down-to-earth stylist for what to buy our equally cool, street-loving friends, we put together a list to fill your shopping carts with.

Leave the sneaker shopping to them

Probably not what you expected us to suggest for the streetwear-obsessed, but when it comes to sneakers, your friend is likely very sneaker-specific. If they aren’t already being gifted the sneakers on their wish list, they probably have some other sleuth-y way of getting them. Instead, stick to patent, silver, and over-the-knee Balenciagas—it’s a bit unexpected, but they’ll love it.

 

A good accessory goes a long way

There’s no better way to elevate a full sweatpant look than by throwing a designer bag on your arm. Or to dress down a dressier outfit than with a hat or scarf—it’s about balance. Grab any of the below, and she’ll be certain to open it with a smile on her face.

 

Get something for the home too

In our experience, when someone has great style, it usually extends to their home. If your friend doesn’t own a bar cart yet, get her one, and if she does, get her something shiny and fun for it. Decorative pillows or a canister (to stash her green) should do the trick too.
