Fashion Holiday Gift Guide

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – With Christmas only 24 hours away, fashion expert Diandra Barnwell, formerly of Cosmopolitan Magazine, stopped by our studio to share her favorite gifts of the season.

FILA: Outfit 
Shirt: $32, Pants: $55, Jacket: $95
Two quotes on brand trends for Fila:
“The ‘90s sportswear flex isn’t going anywhere. Old school sports-inflected style is rife everywhere from the runway to the street.”
“Classic athletic brands are enjoying a very loud, very visible renaissance, thanks in equal part to savvy runway collaborations, timely old-school charm and well-placed support from both influential celebrities and social media trend-humpers. Unlike some of the other brands on this list, Fila never truly disappeared from the cultural radar — especially in the world of sports, where it has maintained an on-court presence over the last century”

Goodwill Glasses
All glasses $89, with a purchase one goes to Remote Area Medical Charity.
Handmade prescription eyeglasses with Zeiss glass for the lens (some of the best glass out there).
Giving and sharing is important. Every child should be able to see better and feel good about wearing the glasses he/she has on. I’m very much inspired by giving and doing good for our nation and the future of our children.
My inspiration to help comes from when our own child was in a coma and the staff and doctors helped to bring him back healthy and safe, thanks to the support of special friends and family who stood by us in this time of need. We felt that our life came to a standstill. If it wasn’t for the children’s hospital, I don’t know what would have happened.
That was the time we decided to do charity for a great cause. For each pair of Goodwill Glasses you purchase, a pair of glasses will be given to someone in need. We do good will together!”
– Jas Kaur, Founder of Goodwill Glasses
