Giving and Getting

Sponsored in part by Old Navy

The holidays are a great time to reflect on all the wonderful people in your life. From your family to your friends to your friends that are pretty much family, the hashtag #blessed is actually appropriate during the holiday season.

Showing how special these individuals are to you takes more than a generic gift. It takes the perfect gift. And in our eyes, there is not better gift than great fashion. Luckily, one of our favorite retailers, Old Navy, has pieces as special as the special people in your life. Whether it is an embellished knit for your sister or tech vest for your brother, Old Navy’s holiday collection has your gift list covered.

But besides your loved ones, it is important to give back this holiday as well. December 1 is Giving Tuesday. CollegeFashionista and Old Navy have partnered for a holiday initiative to foster the ideal that giving is getting. Join us in New York City for an in-store event this Giving Tuesday where you can help us pick out fashionable Old Navy pieces for families of the Boys & Girls Club of America.

This coat is a cozy, cute and stylish alternative to a real fur or sheep skin coat! I know she would love it.” – Lucy Van Ellis, Temple UniversityON7“Pleated and suede? Perfect. I love how flattering and fun pleated skirts look. Imagine pairing this piece with black tights, cute booties, and a leather jacket. Make it a gift, and your your fashionista will make it a staple.” – Erika Borst, Coastal Carolina UniversityON9“I love giving festive clothing as gifts for the holidays. Red and green aren’t colors people typically own a lot of, so a green or red jacket will always be my favorite gift to give. Even if they only wear it for holidays, you know that you gave them something special to wear for this magical time of year.” – Ashely Styers, University of South Carolina
