As fashion girls, we'll admit that we kind of tend to drive our friends and family crazy when it comes to trying to shop for us - we just have a really defined personal style, okay? Ditto when it comes to shopping for our besties with amazing taste - what's a girl to do? Luckily for you, we've got you covered this holiday season with the ultimate guide to picking the perfect gift for your fashionista BFF, no matter her personal style. (Psst: Feel free to do a little shopping for yourself too - we won't judge!)

The Girly-Girl
Ultimate Fashion Girl Gift Guide: Girly

She loves anything with a bow, is a big believer in all things sparkly and consumes enough French macarons to give Blair Waldorf a run for her money - if this sounds like your bestie, one of these flirty, feminine picks should totally do the trick! Gift her a bit of holiday sparkle with a glitter nail polish set ($15, Net-a-Porter) or a shimmery phone case ($40, Kate Spade). Play off her penchant for all things floral with a classy candle ($18, Anthropologie) or pretty printed travel mug ($14, Looking to splurge a bit? A prepster-chic bow tote ($65, Bloomingdales) or personalized monogram necklace ($140, Bauble Bar) are perfect picks. For the girl that has everything, we can pretty much guarantee she doesn't have this adorable macaron throw pillow ($25, Society 6).

The Edgy Glamour Girl

For your friend who's instantly obsessed with anything black and covered in studs, something that matches her edgy, glamorous style will make the perfect gift. She'll be totally obsessed with the Saint Laurent vibes of a starry, studded bucket bag ($119, Zara) - ditto for a star-studded ear cuff ($5.90, Forever 21)! Give her a way to deck out her tech in style with a cool marble laptop case ($24.99, Uniqfind) or chic black and gold headphones ($150, Net-a-porter). Chances are, this fashionista can't get enough of edgy, dark lips, and a new shade ($32, will expand her collection - and if she's not into makeup, Elizabeth and James's fancy fragrance set ($25, Sephora) is definitely the way to go. A fur jacket is high on every fashionista's wish list this year, and an ombre one with rocker-esque shaggy fur ($108, ASOS) is right up her alley.

The Boho Babe

For your free-spirited friend, look for colorful, tribal printed pieces - a printed poncho ($51, ASOS) or vintage-esque floral mug ($14, Anthropologie) fit her style to a T. This fashionista is probably all about having a cozy, serene space to relax in, and a cute cactus-print pillow ($25, Society 6) or candle with a fun, fruity scent ($10, Urban Outfitters) will look right at home in her room, dorm or apartment. A fringe purse ($44, Urban Outfitters) and gemstone earrings ($20, Modcloth) are accessories that will totally nail your friend's bohemian look. When all else fails, Tocca's unique perfume ($68, Nordstrom) with hints of blood orange and a bottle that's perfect for gift-giving is a no-fail choice.

The Minimalist Maven
Ultimate Fashion Girl Gift Guide: Minimalist

This girl prefers quality over quantity and tends to enjoy the finer things in life - but shopping for her is easier than you thought. A soft, snuggly sweater ($59.99, H&M) in an on-trend camel hue or luxe black lace bralette ($35, Aritzia) will make the perfect additions to her minimalist wardrobe. This Forever 21 chain bag ($27.90, Forever 21) bears a major resemblance to the Chloe one she's been lusting after for months, but costs a lot less. Treat her to a fancy beauty indulgence like cinnamon buns-scented body wash ($18, Lord & Taylor) or a luxe mini Diptyque candle ($32, Nordstrom) - a fashion insider favorite. Earthy, clean pieces like a leaf print pillow ($25, Society 6) or gemstone necklace ($29, & Other Stories) are basically foolproof.
