on the street: super sunnies

If there's one thing every cool kid needs in their big bag of fashion tricks, it's a killer pair of sunglasses. It's the easiest way to step your outfit up a notch (and, let's face it, the best way to hide those circles under your eyes) so it's inexcusable not have a super pair. Whether you go classic like photogrpaher Candice Lake (middle right) in a pair of aviators, poppy like casting director extraordinnaire Natalie Joos (middle left) or retro like blogger Montarna (bottom left), make sure you've got at least one pair of super sunnies to add to your fashion repertoire. Need more inspiration? Then check out these stylish people we snapped at Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week today.

designer style series: ksubi

While we're here at Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week, we'll be bringing you a behind-the-scenes look at where the design magic happens. That's right: we'll be taking you into the designer's studio. In our first 'Designer Style Series' profile, we're giving you an all-access pass into the ksubi workshop, where these bad boys create some of the most coveted neo-grunge pieces around. From their custom denim workshop to their graphic art department to their rich archive of past designs, this is definitely one office space we wouldn't mind rocking up to each day for work. And don't forget to catch the ksubi show later today at 8pm; we can't wait to see what these guys come up with next.

mbfwa: must haves

Packing for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Sydney can be tricky if you're from the Northern Hemisphere because the seasons are reversed; but don't worry, we've put together a guide for some MBFWA must-haves this season. Two things that the Australian fashion-set love are colour and prints, so make sure every outfit you've got planned features at least one of the two. Brighten up a plain black dress with a multi-coloured belt from sass & bide or a pair of bright boots from Ginger & Smart. Or, if you're more daring, try a printed silk shirt from Oroton. Don't forget it's currently winter down there, so make sure to grab a cozy jacket - we love this one from Talulah. Last but not least: don't forget to have fun, smile and enjoy the week.
