Ultimate Chicago Gift Guide: New Years Swag

Eating local is all the rage. Why not shop local too?

Check back here every weekday for a classically Chicagoan take on the holiday gift guide. Here, you’ll find either a sophisticated or fun holiday gift item made by a Chicagoan, produced by Chicagoans, inspired by Chicagoans or sold exclusively in Chicago.

FOR THE LADY WHO NEEDS SOME NEW YEAR’S SWAG

Kiwi’s Boutique, 1015 S. Western, offers a wide array of fashion-forward, trendy accoutrements for the lady of style. One standout piece, the black and white sequined shirt ($68), is perfect for the woman on your list in need of demure yet sexy New Year’s splash. This jacket, $92, is also a score for a bejeweled look.

Says owner Chiquita White: “This stylish jewel stone blazer can be paired with a fitted pencil skirt/skinny leg jeans and silver stiletto pumps to add a great twist to any holiday party.

The store is full of those hard-to-find sexy sweaters that work for a hot date or club night while also keeping the wearer warm. Of particular note are the woolen shrugs that work well with the season’s sleeveless dresses. Find it online at www.kiwisboutiqueinc.com.
