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. Next up for the brand will be a special line of designer T-shirts in honor of London Fashion Week and the tenth anniversary of the NEWGEN partnership Topshop shares with the British Fashion Council.

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 celebs — like Molly Sims and Rachel Bilson — rocking this style a few months ago, but couldn’t find an affordable version for ourselves … until now. Topshop’s Crepe Unstructured Jacket comes in three colors and would look perfect over a glam dress or a pair of jeans. Your shoulders will be warm without the rest your look suffering.
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’s what they had to say… Keep reading »
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 been talking about a collaboration. (For those who don’t know, Mr. Green is a business tycoon and Topshop’s owner.)
But it’s an interesting thought. Rihanna often hovers between worst dressed and best dressed … we wonder what her collection would look like. Do you think this would be hot or not? [Daily Mail]

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 robber-style hats). Our pick? This Topshop faux fur trapper hat, which will keep you cozy and make a statement.
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 ask for something that could easily be DIY’d. And more than likely, people will ask if you got it at Hot Topic not Topshop. But that’s just my opinion. So, what do you think — would you wear it? [$50, Topshop] Keep reading »
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 can expect to see a Topshop takeover in all our major capitals? If that’s the case, we’d definitely be down with a British invasion.

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, which makes it just a touch more classy than your average rain wand.
We all have those momentary lapses in judgment when we make purchases we regret (see: nipple tassels, sequin leggings, full-body Spanx). But why on earth someone would buy these Topshop antlers is beyond us. For $160, we wonder just how, exactly, one would get “good use” out of them? The only explanation we could think of is if you somehow have six very fancy costume parties coming up and plan on dressing as Rudolph to all of them. Otherwise, you’d have to be really, really drunk to think spending $160 on an antler headband is a good idea. [Topshop] Keep reading »
Sad news: You won’t be able to get your Kate Moss-designed sequined maxi dresses and slouchy vests anymore because the she’ll be ending her business relationship with Topshop. This comes as a bit of a surprise seeing that the last Topshop/Moss-related news had to do with the model making and selling jam at Topshop, which might be completely random (or just a weird rumor), but definitely didn’t indicate any ending of a relationship. Although Moss has reportedly earned some $5.2 million from her personal style-influenced designs for the retailer, she apparently has more on her plate this year and can’t give enough time to designing the collections.
Here’s where things get interesting, however: Following Moss’s departure, Topshop’s owner, Sir Philip Green, has enlisted his 19-year-old daughter, Chloe, to design her own line for the store …
