It was all about Australia this week at POPSUGAR! Whether we were celebrating the best of Aussie music talent (and some international as well) at the 2013 ARIA Awards, welcoming cool new labels to the country, falling in love with new lines from local brands, or devouring the first mangoes of the season, it was a quintessential first week of Summer. Fashion editor Jasmine took in some of Witchery's stunning new pieces, celebrity and entertainment editor Jess was on the black carpet at the ARIAs and health and beauty editor Alison tore through some of her favourite beauty producst — keen to see the pictures?

Whether it's your niece, nephew, sibling, cousin, god-son or daughter, everyone has a kid to shop for this Christmas. And retailers like Witchery, Seed, Country Road, Cotton On, plus seriously adorable overseas fashion brands are bringing the cute for Christmas (did you know Stella McCartney did a children's line!?). Head into the gallery for 20 options totally suitable for stylish little kids — and we challenge you not to wish some of them came in big people sizes too. . .
Secret Santa. Hard. One of the most awkward times of the year can be the office gift-giving circle and that cringe-worthy moment when you realise you didn't try hard enough with that stack of Post It notes. We're here to solve all that, there's a suitable gift in here for your boss, desk buddy, or that guy you've never actually spoken to (but desperately want to) from HR.

For months now, jewellery trends have followed the "less is more" train of thought, and everything we wear — from rings and earrings to bracelets, necklaces and headpieces — has become finer than a fresh spiderweb. Well, friends, these big guys here are moving in on the prime real estate that is our ears, arms and necks, and the charge is being led by none other than Aussie style icon Lara Bingle. When we interviewed the blonde beauty a couple of weeks ago, we couldn't stop staring at her jewellery (pictured above). The chunky chain links, heavy rings and solid bangles were a breath of fresh air. . . and we'd like more, please. Click through to scour our top 10 pieces of chunky metal jewellery — there's enough to suit any budget and preference. This way!
Every season there's the stuff you just can't survive (stylishly, that is) without. During Winter, you wouldn't catch us without a new pair of ankle boots, skinny denim and plenty of scarves to see us through.
And for Summer, the POPSUGAR editorial team have a handful of basics on our shopping list: sandals, flirty summer dresses, crop tops and colour-pop clutches. So refresh your wardobe for the warmer weather and head into the gallery to shop what we're coveting right now.
You'd be hard-pressed to find two style icons rocking the same look (after all, nothing more stylish than individuality!) but one thing they've all been advocating? Zippered clutches. And we don't mean any old zips scattered anywhere on an envelope-shaped bag — these pretty pieces all subscribe to the idea that handbag contents are best accessed from the top. Having been carted around town by street style stars and models alike, it's clear that there's a new It bag on the scene, and just in time! With the weather heating up, there's no place for totes or heavy shoulder bags. Snap up an easy clutch and save that bag-toting energy for lifting up cocktails instead. Shop our top 10 picks here!
With an extra 24 hours of weekend just around the corner (yay for Labour Day), we all have extra opportunity to relax in a flirty sundress. Spring sundresses come in many shapes and styles, and (believe us) we simply want them all. Whether you're into '90s inspired dark florals (perfect for mornings at the markets), or a little white number to take you out to lunch, the loose fits and unapologetically pretty prints in here were just made to be worn all weekend.
So no matter what your weekend looks like, in here you're sure to find something cute, comfortable and totally covetable — TGIF!
Every once and a while, you have to get savvy with your beauty buys. Products aren't cheap and if it's an obsession for you like it is for us, there's really no way out of hitting Priceline, Mecca Cosmetica and the department store beauty counters on pay day for your next makeup fix. But there's some aspects of your beauty routine you can save on, and one of them is your makeup case. A lot of beauty bags speak to runway trends, so we're saying ditch the clutch and make your cosmetic case a multitasking two-in-one. That's right, from the bathroom to the bar. . . Shop our favourites inside, just add heels.
The ‘W’ Edit (AKA Witchery's blog), will be the primary host for the initiative, offering tips on everything from Tania Braukamper’s inspiring photography in her New York City Guide to Geneva Vanderzeil’s tips on finding the ultimate white tee.
‘The Witchery woman adores fashion and loves to put her spin on it to make a truly personal, stylish statement. She wants us to provide daily inspiration to do so,’ said Linda Levy, Witchery head of design.
