Excuse me, you might want to grab your wallet for this one. It's a goodie.

I've got a quick PSA for your average Wednesday because in case you hadn't heard, Nasty Gal just dropped its newest collection.

This isn't like any other collection either, it's with Australia's own style icon, actress and model (and my unofficial best friend) Sarah Ellen.

Sarah starred in Neighbours back in 2016, has been a queen in the fashion industry for some time and has a whopping 850k followers on the good ol' gram.

Her collection with Nasty Gal is the brand's first since it collaborated with Em Rata and while this one is different, it's just as damn good. So let's break down our favourite pieces, shall we?

Top Picks from the Nasty Gal x Sarah Ellen collection

1.Nude Graphic Tea

I am a sucker when it comes to a graphic tee. I have absolutely way too many but was horrified to realise that I don't actually own one in nude. Appalling, I know.

The style and design of the tee are simple yet unique and very Sarah Ellen. It's perfect if you want to size up for that oversized look and or keep it to more of a fitted style. It's also super versatile because you can pair it with some mom jeans and sneakers for a street style vibe or a leather skirt and some boots for a night out on the town.

2.Black high neck tank

I like the simple things in life. Those staple pieces that you can literally style thousands of ways and each time they look different are a must.

That's how I feel about this black high neck tank top. Sure, it's super simple and definitely not "out there" in terms of fashion, BUT I can literally think of about seven ways I could style this item and I'm all about getting bang for my buck.

It also comes in white if that's more your style but if you're like me, you'll probably just end up buying both.

3. Bright orange blazer

I've never really been a blazer girl myself but holy hell, I think I actually found one I can get around... and that's saying something.

This bright orange blazer literally screams fashun and I think it's more of a need than a want. Rather than easing into the blazer game, why not dive in headfirst?

The jacket also comes with a matching pair of pants for the ultimate big bad boss lady and I am so for it. You could also dress it down with some cycle shorts or baggy jeans if you wanted to tone the colour down.

4.Lace trim midi slip dress

I cannot tell you how long I've been looking for this EXACT dress.

It's incredibly difficult to find a slip dress with a lace trim on the top and bottom that isn't a mini length. It's been months of searching and apparently Sarah Ellen (my unofficial best friend) heard my cries. This dress is so versatile and you can pair it with a belt and some sneakers or some cute pumps to go all va-va-voom if you know what I mean.

Pretty much, all I'm saying is that if you do one thing today, it should be buying this dress.

5.Light blue flare jeans

Flare jeans are the hot new trend this season and I'm not only riding this bandwagon but I am driving the damn thing.

Even if you're vertically challenged like me, you can still pull these off with some heeled boots. Plus, Nasty Gal is so super affordable that it's probably one of the best cheaper options on the market that won't sacrifice quality.

6.Champagne midi skirt

Okay, so I knoooow I've already listed a slip midi dress but here's a slip midi skirt that should most definitely be on your shopping list.

It's not only a totally different colour which is 100% to-die-for but the trim of this, again, has me obsessed. It's unlike any other slip skirt I've seen on the market and is a fresh take on the already popular fashion trend.

7.Vintage denim shorts

Buckle up buckaroos because spring has sprung and it means new denim shorts time. Now, I'll say it here and I'll say it first – if there is one item of clothing you and everyone else you know needs this season it's some vintage denim shorts.

These are not only incredibly flattering but super comfortable. I love that long shorts are now back in style because denim underwear just wasn't my thing and was just plain uncomfortable.

This collection is described by Nasty Gal as "sophisticated but sexy" and seriously, that nails it. Sarah Ellen is recognised for her sense of chic street style and this collaboration with the affordable UK retailer really encompasses that.

The rest of the collection includes items like oversized jumpers, more graphic tees, swimwear, some denim numbers and a bunch of other goodies that will have you yelling "take my money!".

The collection officially launched today in sizes 4-14. Plus, Nasty Gal hasn't upped the prices either, keeping it affordable with items starting at $24 and capping off at $124.
