Why should all the style be relegated to humans? Sure, dogs and cats and other fauna are gussied up in teeny frilly pet clothes from time to time, but what about the plants, y’all? Trees need some fashion lovin’, too! Apparently the peeps at P.S. I Made This are behind us here because they’re embracing yuletide with a few key DIY Chanel-inspired ornaments. These gold chain wreathes encircling rhinestone-laden interlocked C’s add so much sophisticated sparkle, you’d never know they were homemade! The self-reliant spirit of these tree baubles are admirable, inspirational even, but if you’re just too busy (or, like us, too lazy) to set your nimble fingers a-crafting, we’ve rounded up a few purchasable fash-forward pieces for your Tannenbaum.

Looking for a subtle integration of fashion into your mostly traditional tree? Look no further than this Versace orb. Adorned in the ornate stylings trademark to the esteemed fashion house, the Versace x Rosenthal ball ornament follows the red-green-and-gold motif of customary Christmas decor so it won’t compete with whatever ice your pine is already sporting. A litter zanier than that? You’ll be glad to know that Betsey Johnson sells holiday ornaments at Macy’s. This glitter-bellied metallic green frog is the perfect combination of everything Betsey does so well: quirky, glamorous, and cute!

For the Stylette with a more classic aesthetic, Tiffany & Co. offers an array of crystal tree charms like this darling reindeer bauble. We’re imagining a few of these guys interspersed across a lush evergreen and almost can’t even handle all that simple chic! All the shopaholics out there are sure to appreciate this ceramic Barneys shopping bag ornament. Hang multiple on one sprig for a more accurate representation of your purchasing habits. Keith Haring-inspired designs have had a huge year in 2011, from shoes to trapper hats, these bold graphics are everywhere. This tree trimming may say “Best Buddies” but don’t fret if it’s too awesome for you to actually give away. Just pretend we got it for you! *wink* We won’t tell.
