If your giftee list this year includes the kind of girl who might pair a florescent faux fur with a beanie (think Miley, but when she actually still wore clothes) and expertly weaves both high and low fashion into their wardrobe, then you're in luck. Located in the stylish District La Brea neighborhood, Shop Super Street stocks skate brands alongside sleek, fashion-forward finds. We took on the tough task of shopping the store (cut to us trying on literally everything in sight) to choose some of the raddest options to buy the edgy, fiercely fashionable female in your life.
A Full-On Foot Party
HUF "Lip" socks, $8.40
These thick, cozy socks have a bold, pop-art pattern and sassiness that speak directly to street style loving ladies. Your stylish pal will surely want to pair them with something feminine (like these bejeweled slides) to contrast their sportiness.
The Cozy Conversation Piece
Unfortunate Portrait, "Blind to You Haters" sweatshirt, $70
If, like shop owner Lucy Akin, your giftee loves to juxtapose high end pieces with lowbrow gear, this sweatshirt is all kinds of perfect. The crude illustrations of Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder paired with a pun make this a garment guaranteed to get her lots of attention, which is likely something she's always craving.
Illesteva "Leonard II" sunglasses in Black Safari, $231
Feisty chicas will find just the right amount of edge in these mirrored, leopard print frames, which work just as well with a sexy LBD—to give the formal wear a bit of funk—as they do with some sweats and sneaks.
An Arty Accessory
Opening Ceremony, "Misha Wallet" in Midnight Navy, $315
Leave it to the Chloe Sevigny-loved brand to make something as mundane as a wallet into a quirky work of art. The red manicured hand closure will have the stylish recipient of this piece wanting to use it as a party-ready clutch (it needs to be SEEN!). And since it's got plenty of card compartments and a removable change pouch, she totally can.
