We’re calling it – straw bags are a ‘thing’. And if you’re ready to shop straw bags then you’ve come to the right place.

We’ve seen them everywhere from NYC, to Sydney and beyond and now we want in on the action. For visual inspo on how to wear one, look no further than some of our fave style crushes JulianaElly & Anne-Laure.

They’re the perfect seasonal update for your basic jeans + tees combo, but they can also add a cool-girl twist to a black boyfriend blazer (see here).

We’ve curated a pretty extensive list of all our favourites just for you and we hope you like it.

Building out a wardrobe is much the same as building a house – you’ve gotta’ lay a solid foundation if you want it to serve its actual purpose. But with that being said, finding the best wardrobe basics is absolutely not easy. How many white t-shirts must a girl buy before she discovers the one? If you said about a million, you’d pretty much be correct. Pieces like t-shirts that wear well and singlets that actually keep their shape are the unicorns of fashion land – elusive, mystical, and probably only exist in our dreams. That is, until now.

In the name of good journalism, we’ve done the legwork and found a trusted edit of wardrobe basics you can rely on. Ones that won’t tear in the wash, stretch, or look like a rag two weeks in.

A final word of advice from us? Buy more than one. Ain’t nothing sadder than a discontinued wardrobe hero.

STAY: Spoil yourself and stay at the Almanac Hotel –  it’s beautiful, comfortable, luxurious and the staff are AMAZING.

WEAR: A white blouse and black pants is the most reliable outfit, particularly if you want to pack light. I love these tops from Need Supply, KhaiteReformation and The Iconic + these black pants from ASOS, RE/DONE, Miss Selfridge and J Brand.

EAT: For healthy juices, yummy salads and sashimi tacos, Teresa Carles is my number 1!

SIGHTSEE: BYO and watch the sun go down over the whole city at Bunker Del Carmel. Trust.

When it comes to skincare, I’m about as loyal as Tristan Thompson on a night out (not very), but one brand I have always loved is Biologique Recherche. First up, it’s French, meaning by default, I’m into it. Secondly, its hero product, the P50 lotion, makes me ~ feel ~ things. Sydney facialist and skin angel Melanie Grant introduced me to it a few years ago, and the rest, as they say, is history.

 It would be easy to write it off as simply a “toner”, but in reality, it’s so, so much more. It’s a liquid exfoliant I swear by for bright, clear, smooth skin previously reserved for newborn babies only. “Liquid exfoliant,” I hear you say… “I’ve got one of those!” I hear you, but I assure you they are not all made equal. There’s something about P50 that is incomparable, and pretty damn close to magic. I’ll explain the in’s and out’s of ingredients below, but it’s the cornerstone of my skincare routine and I credit it heavily to keeping my face clear and acne-free. My only gripe? It smells like onions mixed with salt and vinegar chips. Gross? 100% But good skin doesn’t come easy, and it’s an olfactory price I’m willing to pay. Scroll on for a little more info on why I love it so much, and a few other BR products that make my heart skip a beat.

 

So What’s P50?

P50 actually comes in four varieties: P50 (the original), P50VP50W, and P50 PIGM400. Each one serves a different purpose, but my MVP is the P50V (punny, I know). Designed for dull or ageing skin, P50V contains yeast, horseradish (explains the smell), and burdock for skin that is bright, tight, and exceptionally clear.  There’s heated debate on the interweb regarding application, but I find it works best when I pop a few drops on a cotton pad and sweep all over my face and neck. It’s got a pretty zesty tingle to it, so if you’re a first-timer, start with only a few applications a week before increasing to daily use.  

The Le Grande Finishing Serum:

Another Biologique Recherché superstar I have grown to love is the Le Grande Finishing Serum. Aside from hydrating and protecting from aggressors like the sun and pollution, this serum makes my skin look insanely glowy. It’s not cheap, but I find when I use it, I can skip foundation for concealer and not bother with highlighter, so I consider it a reasonable swap. While it seems unorthodox, it’s is best applied after moisturiser, or alone if it feels like enough.   

Bio Kiss Lip Balm:

While we’re here, I may as well also mention the Bio Kiss Lip Balm, because it’s straight-up amazing! It doesn’t just coat the lips superficially (like so many petroleum-based balms do), but hydrates the deeper layers and keeps the moisture barrier intact thanks to a bunch of fatty ingredients like lanolin. In short, it will save you on those cold, windy days when it feels as if your lips might – quite literally – crack right off your face.  

So there you have it. A love letter to the French brand that truly gets my skin.

Every now and then, a trend comes along that is so great it makes me wanna throw a victorious fist into the air, not unlike a boy in a coming-of-age romance film might after he finally nabs a date with his crush. The Great Sneaker Revival of 2014 was one such trend, and in great news for feet everywhere, it still doesn’t look like it’ll be departing anytime soon (or hopefully ever), due to the style after style of the coolest new sneakers, emerging every season.

At present, I can safely say that around 80% of my shoe collection comprises of sneakers, and that figure is only on the rise. Part of their charm lies in their versatility. There are so many different styles available at our fingertips (as evidenced in our shopping edit below), so you can constantly hit refresh on your everyday wardrobe by switching up the style you opt for. My sneaker trajectory over the years goes a little something like this: Converse, Adidas, Vans slip-ons, Supergas, Vejas, and most recently Nike. What are yours?

Sneakers go with almost everything in my wardrobe. Unlike a lot of other shoes in my life, they also do not seem to have a personal vendetta against my feet, and therefore all matter of blisters, calluses and high heel-induced ankle injuries have plummeted as a result of wearing them most days. The trend, for me, is essentially the style equivalent of the #NoMakeup movement when it comes to playing into my laziness and desire for comfort always. I bloody love them. 

To celebrate the shoe of all shoes, and in partnership with the rest of the COH team, I’ve rounded up the coolest new sneakers to shop on the internet right now. Get acquainted below!
