With Mother’s Day less than a week away, it’s the ideal opportunity to gift mom with something special and stylish just in time for summer. We’ve taken the time to compose a special Mother’s Day Gift Guide featuring hot fashion finds – including handbags, sunglasses, jewelry and apparel – from around Miami, so you know just where to go and just what to buy!
Mini handbags ($750 to $895) from Burberry at the Aventura Mall are a chic, compact way to style any look, while carrying the bare essentials. With rich leather, a foil finish and a bow motif to boast, she’ll love everything about this cross-body bag.
This Star Spell Bangle ($635) from Montblanc at the Aventura Mall is a prized piece blending the magic of the stars and the sky for the mom who loves to outfit her wrists in wide cuffs with big flavor.
Classy, minimal and modern contemporary, a Transocean Chronograph 38 ($6,350 to $18,160) from Breitling in the Aventura Mall is ideal for the sophisticated lady who’s always on time. Influenced by aesthetics of the ‘50s and ‘60s, the timepiece is offered in both steel and 18-karat red gold.
Mother and designer Alina Villasante has created an exclusive Peace Love World apparel line especially for Mother’s Day. State-of-the-art materials, lightweight fabrics and neutral colors make up the “I Am Mom” featured hats, scarves, hoodies and shirts (items range from $27 to $108), which can be purchased at Peace Love World in Mary Brickell Village, so mom can sport your love year-round.
As the sun begins to bear down even harder on Miami, perhaps it’s time to gift mom with an accented pair of new shades. Go for the new sunglasses from Linea Roma ($150 to $300) at Orianne Collins Jewellery Boutique in the Design District, a stylish line, featuring everything from retro frames to jeweled aviators, a feminine way to be outdoorsy. Moms love Tory Burch.
Moms love makeup. So, why not combine the two for her this holiday with the Tory Burch Robinson Printed Cosmetic Case ($125) from Bloomingdale’s at the Aventura Mall? The whimsical, yellow print pops loudly, and will make a great addition to her Tory Burch carry-on when she takes that much-needed summer vacation.
