Extra Petite x Ann Taylor Holiday Gift Boxes

Earlier this season, I started working with Ann Taylor on a special project which I'm excited to finally share about! I was asked to curate limited edition gift boxes filled with my favorite accessories, which are sure to add a little more holiday style to either your own wardrobe, or that of a sister, mom, or friend.

I'm very much a see & touch person, so I made sure to try on each piece while curating the boxes. I wanted accessories that would be cohesive and versatile, for styling together as well as individually. We ended up with three box themes - Glam, Cozy, and Classic, with something to suit every style and occasion. Ann Taylor produced just a few of each box for the holidays - they are online exclusives and the boxes themselves are beautiful and weighty (also good for accessory storage!).ann taylor x jean wang holiday gift boxes

For this post I wanted to show the Glam box, which includes some gorgeous, luxe pieces to help elevate any outfit. I have this faux fur stole in burgundy from last year and instantly fell in love with the gray. It's generous in size, plush, and feels higher end. Use it as a shoulder wrap around cocktail or formal attire for weddings and parties, or layer it over a winter blazer or coat. I know several of you picked up the belted wrap coat as well from my prior post, so wanted to show how the stole looks styled with it (see first photo).

Another element of the glam box is a 100% silk scarf, with a fun mix of classic leopard spots and splashes of color. There are so many styling possibilities with these ... here are two easy ideas for starters!

Rounding out this box is an elegant statement necklace (Ann Taylor makes some of the best ones in my collection). It has good weight to it without being too heavy, and I love the combination of soft blush pearls with the crystals and gold chain. I can't wait to wear it simply with a sweater and jeans and also with more formal dresses. ann taylor jean wang holiday accessory gift boxes
Thank you so much to those of you who already shared kind messages about the box launch! I'm beyond grateful for the chance to work with some of my favorite brands, thanks to the support of each and every one of you who read this blog. Let me know which of the three boxes is your favorite, and if you end up getting one for yourself or a special recipient, please be sure to send me a photo!

  28. Jean!!! I really love your style and your blog!!! I really wonder how do you manage everything being so proffesional and so delicate in your pictures. You have days of more than 24 hours don´t you?
    I have a new category launched today in my blog about beauty and I would love to hear about your opinion on
    Take care

  29. Really creative way to accessorize the little scarf with neutral colored bags, it spices them up a bit. Congrats on these curated gift boxes, these are amazing gift ideas!

  30. Such a lovely looks!


  31. Caught the black boots. You looked so good in them yesterday. Hard to find boots that first my little legs. Joining her grey sister.

  32. The faux fur stole is just gorgeous! Great combination


  33. great gift idea but $150 is too expensive. For those interested in the cozy gift set....buying each of the items individually is no where near the $150 total. I saw the scarf on sale in store for $22 (it was 50% off sale price $44), the mitten is on sale online for $17.50 and the ribbed hat is $60 full price (but surely to go on sale later) so that's a total of $100 with the hat being full price. Not that hard to curate your own set of 3 items from Ann Taylor for half the price of the gift box.

  34. Congratulations!

    I like the Cozy Box

  35. When I first saw the 3 boxes I knew they would be keepsakes. I love the GLAM set for myself and the Classic for my mom and Cozy for my daughter. Please, these need to be offered for all holiday's. I'd love for Collectors Editions too! Merry Christmas

  36. I love the Classic Box! It is perfect for any woman!! Thank you so much for the chance!
