It's dauntingly difficult to shop for the best-dressed ladies you know — those gal pals and sisters whose closets you constantly borrow from (or wish were your own), and that fashionable friend always one step ahead of the season's hottest trends. Where to even begin when it comes to sizes? Don't worry about figuring out a covert way to ask her that, because the items on this list are nearly all sizeless, on-trend accessories that can be worn over and over, and for many occasions.


The Spokane-based, fine fashion jewelry line Millianna has been worn by celebrities in TV series and has caught the attention of major women's magazines and high-end boutiques across the U.S. Co-founder Arianna Brooke manages the business here, while her best friend and business partner Sharmilla Persaud crafts innovative new looks from her New York studio. All the jewelry pieces are made in Spokane by trained local artisans, many of whom arrived here as refugees. This particular piece is right on trend — the '90s choker look has made a big comeback, and this one is simple yet statement-making, with a variety of cut crystal colors to choose from. $95 • • Call the downtown Spokane showroom at 747-9077 for appt. or local order pickup


She can wear her love for one of Spokane's most iconic locales around her neck with either of these elegantly stylish pieces, commemorating the historic theater's exquisite Art Deco interior and the 10th anniversary of its renovation. Designed by Spokane artist Chris Bovey, these 100-percent silk, limited edition pieces come in two versions. One is an oblong piece in deep teal, white and yellow, while the other is square shaped — she can wear this in the trendy retro flight attendant style — featuring patterns of rich golden yellow, brown and kelly green. Order online before they're sold out, and pick up at the box office. $37/$43 • Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox • 1001 W. Sprague •


Spokane leather goods purveyor Hustle & Hide Co., the creative output of local couple Teddi and Tyler Cripps, has made a name for itself in the Inland Northwest and in style-conscious cities across the U.S. This fall, H&H relaunched its staple women's bag collection, including the signature small satchel called "The Frankie," which comes in a matte gray and saddle tan. The versatile, made-to-last bag is a perfect gift for stylish girls on the go, with its timeless, minimalist shape and dual functionality from a removable shoulder strap. Orders placed online for delivery by Dec. 25 are requested ASAP, but local shoppers might also be able to find this style and others at Window Dressing's Pop-Up Shop downtown. $120 • Order online or find select styles at the Pop-Up Shop • 159 S.

Beanies with big fluffy, furry pom poms on the top are one of the hottest winter looks in women's fashion this year. Not only will your sister or bestie look super cute wearing this knit hat from Hatch Hats, which is fleece-lined for extra warmth and comfort, she'll also be incredibly cozy. $33 • Boutique Bleu • 1184 W. Summit Pkwy. •


This next item is a personal recommendation of my own, and while it's a bit spendy, it's definitely worth saving up for or splurging on. Rothy's is a San Francisco-based maker of sustainable women's ballet flats made from the recycled plastic of disposable water bottles. Rothy's shoes are also seamlessly knitted to offer a slightly stretchy (read: less chance of blisters!) and, best of all, washable material. Perhaps the best part is that they're ultra-chic, and can be worn dressed up or casually for a comfortable and stylish look. Both pointed- and round-toe ($125) styles come in a variety of year-round and seasonal colors and patterns. $145 •
