Beauty Test Drive: TopShop Creamy Finish Lipstick In Wicked

I’m super into the dark lip trend that’s going on right now, but with my fair complexion it’s hard to find a color that doesn’t make me look like a vampire. When TopShop sent us some of their new fall/winter lipsticks, I spotted a burgundy color called “Wicked” that I knew I wanted to try.

Topshop’s Yellowface Necklaces Are Racist Whether They’re “Vintage-Style” Or Not

When a Topshop customer in the UK came across this necklace while shopping at the chain store, she complained to a customer sales representative and was told that the necklace was “acceptable, because it was vintage style” and therefore “not racist.” The necklace depicts an early 19th century stereotype of East Asians — as Refinery

Beauty Test Drive: Topshop Smoky Eye Palette

I love a good smoky eye, so when Topshop’s Smoky Eye Palette in Tuxedo arrived at The Frisky office, I was eager to Beauty Test Drive it. While sultry, smoky eyes aren’t for the faint of heart, it makes a big statement when when you’re looking to amp up your sex appeal. For a night…

Beauty Test Drive: Topshop Gloss Ink, Lipstick & Lip Cream In Shades Of Purple

Before I go into this Beauty Test Drive, I’d like to declare my fondness for Topshop Beauty products. I’ve tried out a fair share of makeup in my day, and I’m generally a big fan of Topshop’s price point, quality and coverage. This time around, I decided to test three purple Topshop lip products: Glo…

Today In Crappy Retailers: TopShop Still Won’t Sign The Bangladesh Safety Accord

Back in April, hundreds of workers died after a building collapse at the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh. In the wake of this tragedy, the Bangladesh Safety Accord was created, with the aim of ensuring safety for clothing manufacturer employers. It’s overseen by the United Nation’s International Labor Organization, and signees to the accord agree…

Do Not Want: Topshop’s $65 “Mom Jeans”

Dear Topshop, I’m not sure why anyone would willingly purchase a pair of mom jeans, but I think everyone knows that an authentic pair can be procured at any Kohl’s or Kmart for much, much less than the $65 price you’ve slapped on these acid-washed, tapered, high-waisted monstrosities. Seriously. Make it stop. [Bleach Acid Mom…

Love It Or Leave It: Topshop’s Motel Skirt

I adore graphic prints and vintage photography, so my first inclination is to love this Topshop pencil skirt. I mean, talk about a statement piece! My only hesitation is that I’m not sure about having a “motel” sign plastered across my crotch. What do you guys think? And if you are on team “love it”…

LFW Days 1-3: Temperley London, Matthew Williamson, Vivienne Westwood & More!

New York Fashion Week is just the beginning … after the tents in New York shuttered, the fashion industry quickly hopped across the pond for London Fashion Week, where designers like Matthew Williamson and Vivienne Westwood began showing their spring/summer 2013 collections. Williamson was his usual bright and boho, Westwood put prim models on the…

Topshop Will Soon Be Available At Nordstroms

Well, some of them, anyway. Topshops will plant themselves in 14 Nordstrom locations, says the department store giant. There’ll be TopShop and TopMan offerings available, and even limited edition only-available-at-Topshops-inside-Nordstrom items. You can never have enough on-trend floral rompers and ear cuffs, we suppose.

The Nordstrom encampments are only part of Topshop’s pla…

TopShop’s Newest TopMan Collection Ensures Wearers Will Never See A Vagina

Rarely does TopShop do anything egregiously wrong — on the women’s side of its operation, at least. But on the men’s side? Well, there’s a reason why TopMan is lagging far behind its female counterpart in sales and hype. You can see what I mean by taking a look at TopMan’s latest offerings — a…

Topshop Rips Off Independent Jewelry Designer

In yet another example of a big fashion chain “borrowing” ideas from an independent designer, Topshop recently rolled out a set of “punctuation rings” that look a hell of a lot like the awesome swear ring set by jewelry designer and fashion blogger Wendy Brandes. Wendy posted a response on her blog yesterday that addressed…

Topshop Unveils New Line Of Designer T-Shirts

Topshop has been making waves in mass market American fashion since its stateside debut in 2009. The corporation is recognized not only for its middle-price, high-fashion appeal but also its association with Kate Moss and, more recently, It girl print-goddess designer Mary Katrantzou.

The Perfect Evening Cover-Up

One of the more difficult voids to fill in our closet is the role of “fancy-ish evening cover-up.” Something you can thrown on over a pretty dress or flirty top that isn’t business-like (like a structured blazer) or casual (like a knit cardigan). That’s where the silky shirt-jacket comes in. We saw a number of…

Ask The Man Panel: Topshop’s Fringed Skirt

This Topshop tasseled maxi skirt takes the fringe trend to, well, the max. With its tie-dye top section, I wouldn’t be surprised to find it in our Coachella style roundup, but that’s about the only situation I can imagine wearing it. We asked the Man Panel what they thought of this uber-bohemian look, and here’…

Rumor Mill: Rihanna Could Be Designing A Topshop Line—Good Or Bad Thing?

Topshop’s celebrity mascot Kate Moss is out. Does that mean Rihanna is next in line? Some are speculating that the pop star may be in talks to design a line for the British fashion chain. We’ll admit, the evidence isn’t all too convincing—that she had lunch with Sir Philip Green in Barbados and “could” have…

A Winter Hat To Tap Into Your Animal Instincts

Guess what: winter sucks. If you live in the Eastern hemisphere like we do, you know that starting December 1st or so, it can be nearly impossible to go outside and feel even moderately warm. You need armor. And preferably something heavy-duty that doesn’t look crazy (read: no homemade mustache knit caps or scary bank…

Would You Wear: Topshop’s Stud Headband?

Here at The Frisky we love headbands and we love studs. But are the two combined just too much? Part of me says the idea is cool, and the black studs on black jersey is a good idea, but even if you did want to rock this style, 50 bucks is a high price to…

Attn, Chicago: Topshop Moves To Chi-Town!

There’s good news for Chicagoans today! Word has it that Topshop will move into a Michigan Avenue location this spring. Americans have gone crazy for the fashionable British import ever since it set up shop in New York City’s Soho neighborhood in ’09. With its second U.S. location in Chicago, we wonder if we ca…

Seeing Flowers In Showers

Getting caught in the rain is no picnic. So if such a tragedy must befall you, make the best of it style-wise with a jolly Topshop umbrella. The fun floral motif on this brolly will be sure to put a smile on your face and those around you. Plus, we’re loving the old-timey curved handle,…
