Holiday Gift Ideas Inspired By Model Irene Kim


Here’s round two of Audrey Magazine‘s holiday gift guides to help you with that last minute shopping.  We decided to pull inspiration from fashion favorite, Irene Kim.  Her popularity continues to grow at rapid speeds along with her Instagram following, and it’s so easy to fall in love with her quirky and playful style.  We chose a few of our favorite looks and found similar items to share. Maybe you’ll end up saving one or two on your own wish list!



1. A Killer Jacket

Still on trend with color blocking, Kim is wearing ACNE Studios.  Though the jacket is difficult to find online currently, we found a similar version with more muted hues being offered by AllSaints Spitalfields.  A bit more on the high side in terms of budget, but if you’re looking for an investment piece to gift, the Frith jacket is available here for $900.

If you know anyone that is a huge fan of animal prints, take a peek at these two looks from Kim.  First, we loved how she layered a printed hoodie to break up the mild, dark colors of her winter outerwear. Then, we couldn’t take our eyes of her on-trend Adidas sneakers.  Interested in these styles?  We found this Zoe Karssen zebra hoodie available here for $140.  Kim’s Adidas Originals sneakers can still be found here and on sale for $84! With Christmas drawing near so quickly, we have an alternative available here for $60 and there’s a pink version.

Black and white stripes are classic, so we hunted down an alternative style to Kim’s skirt.  High-waisted as well, this fitted Dolce&Gabbana piece features a flirty, ruffled hem.  If you are looking for a luxury, high-end gift, this skirt can be found here for $995.

Our obsession with black and white doesn’t seem to end.  There’s nothing like a cozy, warm sweater during the holidays and we really loved Kim’s simple, slouchy plaid top.  Consider giving the gift of warmth this winter with a JOA Boyfriend Check sweater available on sale here for $35.

A great watch can be an accessory lover’s best friend.  Though fashion has given us multitudes to choose from, the practical purposes of a watch makes it relatable to anyone and an easy gift to give.  This bright green band caught our eye and we found a similar style, but with a unique natural wood face—a perfect conversation starter and at a budget friendly price of $56 available here.

3. All-Over Prints

For the urban wear fan, Joyrich can be seen all over the Asian street fashion blogs.  Their flamboyant prints and sayings are a huge favorite for both men and women. With stores in both the United States and Asia, it’s easy to get inspired and find the designs here stateside.  If you know someone that adores bold prints, we found the tee version of this sweatshirt.  You can find Joyrich’s Cuddle Currency Shirt here for $40.

4. A Childhood Throwback

 5. A Pop Of Color

Winter usually means breaking out everything that is black and gray, but we loved how this stylish woman added in a touch of cobalt blue with her cropped sweatshirt and matching booties.  If anyone in your friends and family is a fanatic for all things blue, we found a great ribbed knit cropped sweater from Forever21 available here for $20.

Christmas Gift Guide For The Make Up Lover

So you have to buy a Christmas gift for someone who loves make up, but you don’t know a thing about a make up. This can get a bit tricky. What brand do you choose? What will look good on her skin? What does that cream even do?

Well have no fear! Here at Audrey, we shared our absolute favorite make up items. If we love these so much, we hope she will too. Check out Ask Audrey Staff | Whats In Our Make Up Bag below to get some Christmas gift ideas for the make up lover in your life.


EOS Lip Balm

“Dry lips annoy me and I usually have to choose something that tastes yummy. For the most part, EOS has a pretty decent selection of delicious flavors (not saying that I eat my lips…)” 


NYX (The Curve) Eyeliner

“On the days when I have a million meetings to attend and then a function at night, this eyeliner makes touching up my eyes pretty easy- especially when I want to do a dramatic tail. ” 



MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer

“It hides all my blemishes and evens out my skin tone.” 



Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner (Black)

“So I don’t look like I’m sleeping. Its (Revlon ColorStay) the only one that stays” 

“This has made it onto my list of HG (Holy Grail) products for me. I’ve sworn by this eyeliner since I’ve started wearing makeup. Glides on smoothly – and yes, it really does stay put. ”

“My daily must-have. Really easy to apply and it doesn’t take much effort to get a lot of color out of it. As everyone else has said, it definitely stays on.” 


SENSAI Lip Treatment

“It’s way beyond a lip balm. It totally makes me feel like I have sumptuous Angelina lips.” 



Aerin The Mini Lipstick

“The chicest, most minimal lipstick tube ever. It makes me feel stylish just pulling it out of my bag.” 



MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (Porcelain Pink)

“I could swirl this on with IT Cosmetics super plush powder brush all day long. Adds the perfect hint of sheen and flush to my wan winter pallor and reflects away from my many sunspots!” 



NYX HD Studio Photogenic Grinding Powder (in Soft Beige)

“I was introduced to this over the summer and it gives me the most flawless (and very natural) coverage, without feeling heavy. It’s cool to grind the makeup!” 



Kanebo Sensai Rouge Intense Lasting Color (in 113)

“Enough to last me the entire work day. The red is the perfect shade for me to wear on regular days – just enough color, without going too bold. The formula also feels great on my lips! ” 


Urban Decay Naked Palette

“When my brother gave me this for my birthday, he said all the workers in the shop wouldn’t stop talking about how perfect this gift would be. As expected, I fell in love. It has enough variety for a chill day in the office to a crazy night out.”
