If one solid gold ring is good, then five has got to be better right? When it comes to our finger bling we're of the mind that more is more. Multiple rings per hand — be they finely stacked at different heights or thick bands worn on every digit — we're all for it. If you're still not too sure about the double-up look may we suggest starting with a collection of simple, minimal bands in either gold or silver. Best bit is these clusters are sold as sets so you don't need to multiply your budget to buy into the trend. Our favourite five stacks under $25 are waiting for you inside. . .
Rugging up on the weekend is a relatively simple task — especially when you have our off-duty celebrity lookbook to provide the inspiration! Getting dressed for the nine to five in Winter is somewhat harder; you have the difference in inside versus outside temperatures to deal with, as well as the tricky task of looking professional whilst keeping warm. Ugg boots, beanies and chunky scarves just won't cut it if you work in a corporate office. Even if you work in a creative field, there's still some trickery to walking the Winter/workwear line. Step inside to see how the POPSUGAR editors navigate it.
Last Monday we explored the classic appeal of the pea coat, but if you're not the polished type a tailored wool topper might feel a little, well, stuffy. Which is why we're equally in favour of the humble army jacket — aka, the anorak. Combat cold weather with a utilitarian coat that, like your trusty denim jacket, will magically work with any ensemble. Throw it over a flirty floral dress to counter the girly-factor, wear it with leather skinnies to keep things casual, or rug up with woollen layers — any way you wear this hard-working topper you're going to benefit from it's no-fuss appeal. Step inside to shop our top ten picks.
Topshop has launched its festival collection inspired by Kate Bosworth, which ultimately plays into the brand's multi-dimensional, interactive Summer campaign. From the acid-washed denim dresses and buckle-strap wedges to the pink-dipped feather angel wings, silver slip dresses (made for frolicking), and essential white separates, the line-up has Bosworth's mark on every piece. "To gain learning experience from the Topshop design team has been a great opportunity for me. Our intent was to create fresh, wearable, and effortless festival pieces. I am proud of our work together and I adore these pieces," Bosworth said.
Along with the collection debut, a short film shot by Bosworth's fiancé, Michael Polish, entitled The Road to Coachella, was released today, too. The dreamy video reveals Kate Bosworth roaming Mono Lake, CA, in a handful of effortlessly styled Topshop looks. Consider this the beginning of Topshop's Summer campaign — which aims to celebrate British festival style and the discovery of music — and click on for your first look at the collection (to be available online and select peices in the Sydney store soon), campaign, and short film.

You're probably familiar with the fact that Topshop shows it's Unique line alongside the big guns at London fashion week, but the UK high street hero will now be joining the international pre-fall and resort seasonal drops, too. The Sydney store will be one of seven Topshop flagships world-wide to receive the trans-seasonal collection (stay tuned for Resort!).
The limited edition line-up falls back on the minimalist, considered aesthetic that we've come to know and love from Topshop Unique; featuring boxy-cut shell tops, chiffon-spliced blazers, bright slip dresses and sharp-edged accessories. Luxurious fabrics like cashmere, silk, gorgette and duchess satin ensure the fuss-free designs remain luxurious in the most modern of ways. As it's dropping into the George Street emporium next week, and with prices starting at $240 may we make a strong suggestion that Sydneysiders schedule an in-store visit sooner, rather than later?
If last week was all about the red carpet (hello Met Gala madness!), then this week is all about off-duty celebrity style. Stars are ditching the big gowns and designer names for effortless, low-key looks. Snapped on the streets of New York or LA, jumping on (or off) an international flight, or just going about their day to day — these A-listers all rely on a concise edit of wardrobe staples. After some close and very serious analysis, we think we've cracked the off-duty style code. Step inside to see how they do it, shop the core items, then pepare to get papped!
Sienna Miller knows how to start (and own) a trend — boho chic, anyone? — but her latest turn toward a more feminine fit-and-flare silhouette is something she has actually loved for years. While Miller's long-sleeved, light blue Matthew Williamson box-pleat dress may be the most recent example of her penchant for the girlier style, she has also stepped out in Topshop, Valentino, and Twenty8Twelve iterations. And it's not hard to see why she loves a fit-and-flare dress — and why, if you haven't converted yet, it's a really flattering choice for most body types. By cinching the smallest part of your waist and letting the skirt flare out over the hips, it creates an illusion of a bombshell-like figure. And for those of you who aren't after a totally body-con fit, this route touches on something halfway to form-fitting. All the proof you need, according to Sienna Miller, is right here.
Move over denim! Leather has been on the radar for many a season — making repeat appearances on celeb bods and runways alike — but we think this hard-wearing staple has finally hit its straps; replacing denim as the fashion set's most durable yet desirable fabrication. E-tail stores in-the-know have entire tabs dedicated to their leather offerings, and you'll find everything from tees to dresses to drop-crotch pants have been sexified in this skin. Hence, this week on POPSUGAR Fashion we'll be spotlighting anything and everything leather.
To ensure that your leather foundations are firm we're going to start at the cornerstone of any leather capsule: the iconic biker jacket. One part Steve McQueen to two parts Kate Moss — this tough-girl staple will add 'tude to any outfit. Balmain and Rick Owens are famous for their respective takes on this wardrobe essential, but there are some less exxy versions on offer, too. On your bike!
Black boots are like the denim equivalent of any footwear collection: versatile to the point of ridiculous, fabulously functional yet cool for any occasion. Which is why I'm shining the Editors' Pick spotlight of this un-sung shoe hero. Whether you want an on-trend seasonal update (hello gladiator cut-out boots!), or have simply worn out that trusty pair that got you through many Winter — our editors have done the legwork for you. Step inside to see their online selection. . .
Nicole Richie might have opted for a more subdued ensemble today, wearing a beaded Topshop dress and Vero Cuoio pumps, but she made up for it with a super punked-out grey updo and subversive jewels. Gold cuff earrings injected a tough touch to her look, while additional vintage silver jewels by Maria Francesca Pepe and a gold House of Harlow 1960 clutch supplied a more ladylike vibe. Do you love it?
