Suku Home Rhythm Classic Pyjamas, $180.

"This is the first new item of clothing I've bought this year. I've been coveting some Suku pyjamas for years, so I bought some at their Sydney pop-up store.

Nike Air Max 90, $190.

"I stopped scrolling as soon as I saw these bad boys on Insta. The colour of these kicks is everything. I had also forgotten how comfy Air Max trainers are - haven't had a pair since the mid '90s." - Frankie Romano, NSW Sales Manager.

Sportscraft Robyn Varsity Bomber, $349.99.

Dented Diva Paris Dangle Earrings, $35.

"I was gifted some earrings from Dented Diva - they are the perfect statement party earrings (or for everyday if you love glitter like me). They're like wearing disco balls on your ears. I love adding some sparkle to wintery days." - Rose Kerr, Podcast Producer.

Sleeper Party PJ Set, $420.

"I finally caved and bought these party pyjamas. I love the feather detail on the pants - it's just the right amount. Realistically I wouldn't actually wear these to bed, but I'd definitely wear them out to dinner with some heels. Oh, and they're also 30 per cent off right now." - Talia Phillips, Strategy Manager.

Petal & Pup Leyton Jumpsuit, $89.

"I have my both my mum's 60th cocktail party and my friend's 30th at a pub this Saturday night, so I needed something I could wear to both. I picked up this black jumpsuit from Petal & Pup, which I think is really versatile! I'll change my shoes and add a leather jacket for the 30th to dress it down a little after the cocktail party, and the tie waist also makes it really flattering." - Simone Masci, Sales Manager.

Fashion Mode Link Chain Bracelet, $40.

"I was sent some jewellery from this label (perks of hosting a fashion podcast!) and absolutely love their chain link collection - it's super wearable for day but elevated enough for evening too. There are matching earrings and a choker with this set which I'll be wearing to an upcoming event. Plus, it's much more affordable than it looks." - Tamara Davis, Head of Lifestyle and co-host of What Are You Wearing?.

Trenery Alpaca Bell Sleeve Cardigan, on sale for $99.95.

Trenery does excellent knitwear, and you can get this luxe cardi on sale right now for under 100 bucks! Although it looks great over tanks and tees, I love it on its own as a top tucked into jeans or leather pants. - Tamara Davis, Head of Lifestyle and co-host of What Are You Wearing?.
