• Something in a luxe fabric like lace or a brocade (Ellen says: If a lace dress, top or skirt isn't your style, consider a scarf, a clutch or even a lace-look cellphone cover -- Marc Jacobs for iPhone 5, $38, nordstrom.com
• Knee-high boots: "With a mid to high heel. She's going to be able to do so much with that. In black. Or a flat equestrian boot, like a riding boot."
• Colorful coat: "They're so beautiful. Swing coats. Lots of color in coats! They're great things that women can actually wear over and over. It goes with everything."
