'Tis the season, and we're starting to give much consideration to our holiday wishlists. If you're struggling on what to ask for, Net-a-Porter is encouraging us all to aim high. Today, the luxury e-tailer has launched their fantasy gifts, also known as the most luxurious fashion gifts to ever hit our list. If money is no object, consider adding one, or all, to your list for Santa.
While it may seem like we're still getting through the thick of the warmer weather, it's never too early to start thinking about the fall trends you want to build up your wardrobe with. From slouchy boots to statement earrings, these are the must-have pieces you should be shopping now for the upcoming season.
Tailoring comes with a sporty twist this season, but the suit is still dressed up and ready to take you anywhere. Pair a chic white tee with white leather kicks, and add a layer of glamour with a gold watch and a luxe chain bag.
Just when you thought we were running out of trends to revive from the '90s, another nostalgic piece has slowly been making its comeback: teen, tiny sunglasses. Though not entirely practical for UV ray protection (and you know, actually blocking the sun from your eyes), the micro frames reigned as the ultimate cool girl statement in the '90s and early 2000s. Now making their return as the shades of choice for the It girls of 2017 (namely Bella Hadid) and the fashion blogger set, the retro frames are officially back. Shop the looks of the season below.

From millennial pink to maxed out merch, these were the trends that ruled the year.
If anyone won 2016, it was chokers. From classic black to lace, velvet, diamonds, nameplates and even DIY shoelace chokers, the "it" accessory came in every fabric, color and width this year.
The rise of tour merchandise expanded beyond concert venues this year. Thanks to Kanye West's The Life of Pablo merch and Justin Bieber's Purpose Tour gear, the trend sky-rocketed early in the year and only grew from there—with celebs like Kim Kardashian West, Gigi and Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner creating their own merch (despite, you know, not actually going on tour).
According to a new report, the Cartier Love Bangle is the most searched-for jewelry item in the world, receiving over 350,000 Google searches per month.
The report – which was undertaken by a company called Karus Chains – ranks Cartier's bracelet at the top of the table with a staggering number of monthly searches. Next on the list is a Tiffany engagement ring, followed by the brand's heart necklace and in fourth place, Swarovski's crystal earrings.
Sure, a little black dress or Le Smoking suit is always on par for the party scene, but who says holiday dressing has to be so cut and dry? From velvet suits to silky slip dresses, 11 ideas for switching it up and looking festive this season.
Naughty or Nice?
Mix a sheer metallic top with a deep burgundy skirt à la Olivia Palermo. Take the look up the notch with a shade of deep blue or green lipstick.
Tis The Sequin
Skip the full-on sequin dress and instead work the festive beads into your look with one statement-making piece like Solange's pants, Nicole Richie's sleeves or Sara Foster's max skirt.
