GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
A few Gen Y AND Gen Z’s said they’d like to see a take on the essentials with a closer fit to their sensibilities. They’re noted as sophisticated, tech savvy and immune to most things traditional. They blaze their own trails in style and, well, everything. Not that other women do not. These young women do it with it their own special brand of ‘tude. All of the selections here are from Romwe or STYLESOFIA, but popular retailers such as Charlotte Russo also offer some perfect styles for the Gen Y’s and Z’s.
This Leopard Printed Sleeveless Tank Dress fits the bill. The deep scoop and I-shaped back make it both demure and sexy. The acrylic/spandex fabric should give it a great flow and feel when she strolls into the do.
This Jersey Tank Dress has the right attitude. Glamorous, sexy and comfy, made of lightweight, stretchable Jersey cotton. Impact entry guaranteed.

This Beaded Collar Floral Shift Dress has attitude to spare. A crochet lace hem peaks from underneath the flouncy pleated skirt, topped off by halter collar. Faux Pearl embellishments complete the look.
Your Y/Z a little more demure? Gift her with the Floral Print Cut Out Dress. Demure (button up collar, full knee-length skirt) until the side cut-outs reveal.
This 70’s Vintage Floral Sun Dress will make her feel even more confident when she attends that casual Spring Fling.
This Shirt Dress really offers the versatility the a typical Y/Z’er loves. She positions the front buttons as far down or up as she dares. Wear it with or without add-ons. Like the leggings shown. She can dress it up or down too, depending on chosen accessories.
The slight sheerness and length of this Loose Buttoned Shirt Dress might appeal to many Gen Y/Z. Especially those contrasts to the classic white
color and cut of the shirt dress. Another one that dresses up or down depending on accessories.
The pure silk self-tie front White Shirt gives her versatility also. The pointed collar, button front and tie can be arranged in lots of ways—depending on her outfit, the even and/or her mood.
The asymmetric hem and stitch detail of this Short Sleeve silky T-shirt gives it flavor the Gen Y/Z might like. T also has an oversized fit finish.
For a different take on the silk top, consider the Dipped Tie-dyed Strap Vest. Retro is also in, and this has a 60’s look. She’ll have lots of opportunity to play up all kinds of jewelry with this silk v-neck.
Gifting a Y/Z with shoes would be an iffy proposition. Super eclectic comes to mind. However, the 10 Top Spring Essential for women—the Shoes post lists plenty of retailers with eclectic choices. You might let her browse and pick some faves first though for the wedge and strappy sandal Spring Essentials. Retailers, such as CharlotteRusso, are also good bets for shoes to please Y/Zers.

The same goes for purses, as to style choices in the previous Spring Essential posts. Although, the purses below practically jumped off the page as a potential Y/Z candidate.
