Christmas Day is just three weeks from today — and while most of us will be celebrating with family or friends, there are many different lunch styles that each calls for a totally different outfit. There's countless factors to take into consideration when picking what to wear on Christmas Day; eating capacity, ability to play a round of backyard cricket, and striking the right cool-yet-endearing level of festiveness. And trust us, we've considered them all! Head into the gallery to see what we're doing this Christmas, and what we'll be wearing. And no, there aren't any novelty earrings in here. . . Merry Christmas!

It's impossible not to feel totally chic, polished and perfectly put-together in one of the season's girlie-cool skirts — just ask any of the street style stars at fashion week. We know you're fans of fashion, and you're fully aware the skirt is Spring and Summer's wardrobe hero, but we're betting by the end of November you're running out of different ways to try the trend. Cue the ultimate skirt-spiration gallery, stocked full of amazing street style shots. Plus, we've tracked down just where to pick up each of the trends.
On the street at fashion week, some ladies loved the full volume version of the trend, others were more the short-and-flirty type. Either way, we've got the goods, and how to style them, here in the gallery.
You need at least one of these in your life! There are few fashion staples as chic, comfortable and easy-to-wear as the day dress. This season, minimalist '90s slips are sitting alongside boho Isabel Marant designs, while stripes remain the off-duty pattern of choice.
Inside you'll find the mini, maxi and midi lengths from our cheap and chic (Minkpink!) and luxe designer names (Acne!) we're coveting for Summer. Just name your price!
Hold onto your high heels, because we're just days away from November, the month notorious for kicking off Christmas parties, end-of-year celebrations, office drinks and more excuses to stay out all night. And if there's one essential to hold close throughout the party season, it's the clutch.
For Spring, squishy, folded clutches and zip-top styles are having a serious moment, while iridescent shades (Proenza Schouler) and studs (Valentino) are still strong. Meanwhile, on the high street, ASOS, Topshop, Colette Hayman and more are delivering options that won't pull on the purse strings. So, what are you waiting for, the top 28 are all in the gallery.
Not only is pink one of the coolest colours out (we've already established that here and here), but for the month of October, you can buy pink products that raise funds to fight breast cancer. While all of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, today is Pink Ribbon Day — and the perfect time to support the cause. With 37 Australians diagnosed each day (we're talking one in eight under the age of 85) the chances of breast cancer touching your life is very high.
So if you haven't already put your wallet where your mouth and picked up some pink products, today's the day. Inside the gallery you'll find pretty and pink buys for every budget that raise funds for the fight against breast cancer. Take a look.
For Resort '14, Sass and Bide has injected a welcome dose of whimsy into their collection, titled Greaty 180. Soft, period-era drapery is juxtaposed against sharp futuristic silhouettes throughout, while tulle and woven textures add a playful dimension to crisp whites, frothy sheer fabrics and aged denim.
Captured by photographer Ben Sullivan, Australian model-of-the-moment Cassie Van Den Dungan brings the collection to life in Sass and Bide's playful Resort '14 campaign.
Take a first look at the collection in the gallery, before shopping the line when it begins landing this week.
Just hours after pulling on a chic, cream Alexander McQueen frock for the christening of Prince George, Kate Middleton delivered a second dose of style inspiration at the 100 Women in Hedge Funds gala.
In another public display of her affection for Jenny Packham's designs, the Duchess wore a plunging, navy blue, floor-length gown by the designer. Although it originally sashayed down the runway as an off-the-shoulder dress, Kate gave the dress her own spin with capped sleeves.
Her only accessory was a glittering diamond bracelet, reportedly a gift from Prince Charles. Zoom in on that oufit and more of Kate Middleton's Jenny Packham gowns in the gallery.
If you scroll through hundreds of street style photos, you might start to notice a pattern. This set doesn't subscribe to the more is more mentality, at least when it comes to handbags. On the contrary, our favourite fashion insiders made this season's It bag the kind that can actually fit in one hand: the zippered clutch.
If you're addicted to your oversize carry-alls and totes, hear us out: we're not just fans of the chic pared-down look, but also the practicality — a clutch in hand will hardly wear on your shoulder like an oversize bag. What's more, it still fits the essentials you really need (read: phone, keys, cash, and cards). What more could you want?
