If ever you needed an excuse to drop some cash on a brand new wardrobe, starting Summer is definitely one. What better reason to invest in new swim from Zimmermann, check-out Lara Bingle's Cotton On Body collection and start hunting for the perfect party season little black dress? Nope, we can't think of one either. So keep those credit cards at an arm's length, and step into our edit of the must-have Summer buys this month.
We've said it before and we'll say it again — there are few things better than nabbing an amazing designer bargain. This week, we've located current season Stella McCartney, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Isabel Marant at 30-40% off (!!), the best online Alexander Wang sale we've seen in ages and more.
Head inside for a sneak peek at what's coming on sale this week — and if that's not enough, don't forget to check out our six secrets to grabbing super-discounted designer clothes.
When we first spied this floral frock by Camilla and Marc on Jessica Gomes at Caufield Cup, the thought of waiting until January until the Autumn collection dropped in stores seemed like torture. And now, we have a first look at the local label’s Autumn range, titled ‘Steroscopy’, including that floral dress.
The collection suggests a restrained, mature new direction for Camilla and Marc, with rich textures and beautiful tailoring culminating in what will surely be the most wanted eveningwear pieces of the season — if not by you, then certainly by us!
Model Cassi van den Dungen brings the range to life in the look book, while creative direction and styling was led by Mark Vassallo and photography by Justin Ridler.
Although you can’t actually add anything to your wardrobe until mid January 2014, you can have a first look at it here in the gallery, so what are you waiting for?

If our days this week taught us anything, it's that we're heading into a hot Summer full of cool entertainment, style and beauty adventures. Like what, you ask? Well, for one thing — blue (in all shades!) is making a comeback in a big way, and labels saw Camilla and Marc and Paint It Red showed us how to incoporate it into our wardrobes. Beauty-wise, we were so excited to finally welcome Mecca Maxima to Sydney — we got to take an exclusive tour of the place, and let us be clear: this place is a game-changer. Speaking of game-changers. . . Our celebrity and entertainment editor, Jess, interviewed the very lovely and chivalrous James Arthur — if you don't know him now, we promise you, you will.

Are you a sports-luxe lover? Then you're going to fall hard for this. Camilla and Marc's slightly more casual secondary line C&M has released its Resort '14 offering, blending athletic details (it's mesh and logo tee galore in the gallery) with a chic and refined colour palette of black, white and navy.
Styled by frequent Camilla and Mark collaborator, Mark Vasso, and shot by Zachary Handley, the collection is dropping in stores and online right now — so what are you waiting for? Preview the new looks in the gallery now.
Predictably, there's a plethora of street style trends streaming out of fashion month that we're mighty keen to try out, but what sets this flirty-skirt combination apart is the fact it's completely wearable and easy to achieve by keeping the right proportions. One part flirty to two parts structured, the sporty mood of an oversize sweater and the flirty feel of the fluted mini-skirt is the perfect weekend pairing — just ask fashion publishing pros Sarah Ruston and Kate Davidson Hudson.
With the weather only getting warmer, this is a street style theme that promises plenty of wear, so what are you waiting for? Shop our top picks (for all budgets) in the gallery.
As usual, Camilla and Marc's latest looks will feel right at home in a modern woman's wardrobe. Blending minimalist, wearable cuts with intense colours, prints, and fabrics (think: gold jacquard and chantilly lace), the collection draws inspiration from the early twentieth century art movement. Shot by Justin Ridler, fronting the campaign is teen beauty Holly Rose, who recently appeared on the cover of Miss Vogue.
Take a first look at the collection here, and then head straight over to Camilla and Marc to shop up a storm — because the Resort 2014 collection drops online and in stores from today. Keep your eye out for the perfect little white dress and a pale pink suit that, according to Spring 2014 runway trends, is totally ahead of its time.
There's a lot to love about the trumpet skirt — it's unashamedly feminine, flattering, versatile and, if Spring Summer 2013/2014 runways are anything to go by (hint: they definitely are), the full-bodied skirt is trending, hard. Otherwise described as the 'fit and flare' silhouette, the trumpet skirt hugs your hips and then flares at the hem — whether that hem is a mini or midi length is for you to decide.
With Spring fashion in full swing (!), we're glimpsing these oh-so-girly silhouettes left, right and centre. Country Road, By Johnny and Bianca Spender are some of the local names doing it for Spring, while internationally Stella McCartney and (at the other end of the financial spectrum) ASOS are delivering new-season skirts with extra kick too. Take a look at our top ten now.
