550 Sneakers, $180 at New Balance
This month I'm finally getting myself a pair of New Balance 550s. At least, I'm trying. The ultimate dad sneaker / TikTok fave keeps selling out so fast, it's a mission to get your hands on a pair - but I live in sneakers and they're perfect for winter, so I'm going to keep at it. Wish me luck. —Alex Bruce-Smith, Digital Managing Editor
Raven Twill Paloma Dress, $725 at Bianca Spender and Twist MM Bag, $6,850 at Louis Vuitton
I've got a few functions coming up and nothing beats the ease and elegance of a classic black dress. Bianca Spender's super-flattering Paloma perfectly snugs all the right places, but also flows beautifully when you move. Best of all, you can wear it to work and evenings out just by adding a few glam extras. Versatile, beautiful and comfortable - what's not to love?
I'm also obsessed with Louis Vuitton's Twist MM chain bag featuring the now-iconic LV lock. It's cool but classic, unexpectedly practical and the perfect day-to-night addition. At $6850, the Twist is a true investment piece: you'll wear it forever, until your daughter steals it!—Nicky Briger, Editor.
Blue Pinstripe Skirt & Top Set, $889 at SWOP
This month I've got my eye on all things winter at vintage stores across Sydney. Specifically, I'm after layering pieces given that I'm moving from heated space to freezing wind tunnel to heated space again every day.
This Gucci set from Swop fits the bill perfectly, so it *might* be finding its way to my doorstep if I haven't already thrifted it in store by the weekend...—Jess Pullar, Digital Culture Editor
Morphe C Jaclyn Hill The Master Remix Collection, $145 at Morphe
My beauty cabinet is in desperate need of a brush update - I'm talking months and months old brushes that are crying out to be replaced. Everyone I know raves about Morphe brushes so I've always been keen to try them, and this is the perfect excuse.
I'll be shopping this set because it's got every single brush under the sun from foundation to blush and eyeshadows - the perfect all-rounder!—Lucy Cocoran, Digital Lifestyle Editor
The Fearless Leather Pant, $899 at Manning Cartell
Love them, loathe them or simply can’t look at them without seeing that infamous episode of Friends with Ross Geller, leather pants are everywhere right now. And, I am absolutely feeling the former.
As someone with an almost exclusively neutral wardrobe, this stunning pair from Manning Cartell is the perfect winter addition, bringing a new texture to my seasonal mix in my favourite hue.—Maddison Hockey, Digital Shopping Editor
Crochet Glass Pear Vest, $2,890 at Christopher Esber
Like everyone in the world, I'm currently sartorially referencing Harry Styles' fashion sense after the release of 'Harry's House'. As any fan would know, a statement vest is an essential item in his sartorial arsenal and I'm currently coveting this one from Christopher Esber.
With glass beading and crochet detailing, this piece is something I'd own and love forever and continue to be stylish for seasons to come.—Ava Gilchrist, Digital Fashion Writer
Ophidia GG Medium Tote, $1,390 at GUCCI
Having just returned from a trip to Hawaii after two years of no travel, I realised I need a bigger carry-on bag! Trying to squish my book, passport and neck pillow into a handbag was a struggle, so with my next holiday already planned I’m buying this Gucci tote in advance.—Bree Player, Features Editor
Brie Leon The Everyday Croissant Bag, $249 at THE ICONIC
I’m obsessed with chocolate colours this season and am loving this everyday bag to replace my existing black one. The gold buckle elevates it enough without overpowering the minimal design, which will allow me to take it from day to night wear. It also looks large enough to fit all of the essentials, without being too big or bulky! Very chic!—Emily Gittany, Fashion & Production Assistant.
Adidas Consortium + Wales Bonner Japan Suede And Leather Sneakers, $154 at Mr Porter
Every time Wales bonner collabs with adidas on a sneaker they get it right. These are the most comfortable sneakers and one of the only ways I add colour into my office outfits - I have the yellow colour way already...... but these are now my cart before they sell out ! They also always have people asking me "where did you get those" and it secretly does give me joy to tell people they are already sold out.—Teanne Vickers, Jnr Fashion Editor.
