Sh*t we stole from the fashion closet…because it was THAT good

We might get arrested but it was so worth it!

Being a stylist is cool and all but at times you need to show more self-restraint than a chocolate addict on a no-sugar challenge. We basically live in the malls and get sent all the coolest sh*t and when you’re a fashion lover or shopaholic, the *carrot of temptation* is always being dangled in your face.

The times that we do indulge in a little shop are definitely well-considered. We wish we could own every item in the fashion closet, so when we decide to commit to a new purchase, it’s kinda a big deal. Like should we make it Facebook official, BIG.

These are the things we’re crushing on this week, straight from the COSMO fashion closet.

Sh*t we stole from the fashion closet…because it was THAT good

(or wanted to, anyway)

1 The baguette bag

Oui oui, all the fashion girls are crazy about this ’90s throwback bag. Not the most practical for the working girl on-the-go due to its small size (where are our power bank, x10 chargers and mobile supposed to go?) but in this case, we don’t care because this trending bag style is that cute!

2 Barley-there shoes

Literally everyone on the beauty and style team has a least one iteration of these ‘naked’ sandal shoes (we all have the exact same black pair from MRP because on Wednesdays we like to match). Unfortunately, the MRP versions are all sold out (don’t look at us) but scroll below to shop a similar pair that may be even cuter than ours. We are actually jealous.

3 Sustainable denims

We recently shot the COSMO Denims Awards for our April issue and we discovered Cotton On’s new sustainable jeans that are game changers! The fit is incredible, the are affordable and they are available in a variety of colours and styles. As a team, we’re all about conscious fashion and it’s really hard to find denims that are made using sustainable manufacturing methods so these are a one-of-a-kind find!

4 Faux fur

We sourced this amazing yellow faux-fur coat for a shoot recently from a store called Orphan Street, and we it’s definitely on our winter-wardrobe wishlist. Hurry up winter, we are ready for you and we’ll be wearing attire that’s less drab more dramatic! Winter fashion is going to be all about colour this year.

5 African prints

If there is a designer that the *whole* COSMO team are loving it’s FabroSanz (a massive S/O to them). Holly Meadows, our Editor, wore their designs to New York Fashion Week, Cleo Marcopoulos, our Fashion Director, rocked a lewk at Milan Fashion Week and Jaime Waddington, our Digital Director, owned FS vibes at the Queen Sono Netflix premiere. Eye-catching designs tailored to perfection and made locally — what’s more to love?
