the holly golightly gift guide

what to get for your friend having breakfast at tiffany’s.

by nylon

Ready or not, here it comes! Holiday season has arrived, and that means tons of shopping. But let's be real: your average gift guides are boring, so we're going to do things the NYLON way with lists inspired by our fictional dream BFFs. Every week we'll be picking the best gifts for our movie muses, so keep checking back to find that perfect item for your friend...or for yourself. 

This week we're kicking things off with Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's, because if anyone knew how to shop, it was the original New York It Girl. She's classy, carefree, and seriously chic, whether she's in her Uptown best munching on a croissant outside those glistening Fifth Avenue windows or chilling Downtown singing with her guitar. Below, we've rounded up the 50 best items for that friend who's a wannabe Audrey Hepburn (you know who we're talking about!). Click through for '60s-inspired dresses, ladylike staples, and yes, even a special something from Tiffany's. Because it wouldn't be the perfect gift for a modern-day Holly without that little blue box.
