Giffin—author of 10 books, including Something Borrowed, which was made into a movie featuring Kate Hudson—knows what she likes. With a closet filled with Balenciaga and Lanvin, Giffin loves classic, timeless pieces paired with elegant, understated jewelry and comfy essentials (“I’m never far from my Frame denim jacket”). And she has places to sport them: Called a “modern-day Jane Austen” by Vanity Fair, Giffin juggles writing, family (including her three children), celebrity events, book tours, and licensing for film and TV.
