WTF: Topshop’s $160 Antler Headband

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…

Stock Up Now: Kate Moss To End Topshop Collab

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…

Kate Moss To Add “Jam Maker” To Her Resume?

Kate Moss has worn a lot of hats in her life already—model, designer, horrible singer, writer (ha!). And now … she wants to make jam? Random! That’s the word floating around the rumor mill now—that Moss adores plums and has a jam recipe that she wants to mass produce. According to Hint magazine, the British…

Bondage-Style Lingerie That Won’t Tie You Down

It’s no easy feat to find high-class, dominatrix-vibe lingerie for mid-range prices. You can either buy some plastic getup from the porn store, or drop half your rent on something ultra-luxe. (Which would be ideal were we all millionaires. Alas, alas.) For something sexy and slightly dark, look to this Topshop bodysuit. The simple form…

Topshop Wants To Help You Tat Yourself

Chanel’s fake tattoos have been spotted on the skin of some famous ladies lately, obviously gifts from the design house, but if you aren’t an F.O.K. (friend of Karl, as in Lagerfeld) that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate your body with a few temporary designs. We’re certainly not suggesting you head to the nearest kids’…

BFF Necklaces For The Brokenhearted?

Aww, we remember when we had a BFF necklace just like this one … er, actually, upon closer inspection, this Topshop doodad isn’t at all about memorializing your everlasting best friend love, but rather about ripping any pleasant sentiments to shreds. So, what, you give this to people you know you’re going to break u…

Kate Moss Flashes Her Bottom For Topshop

Spring looks for Kate Moss’ eponymous Topshop line hit stores this Thursday, but they hit the internet today. Though the clothes themselves are a challenge to see in the angelic light shining behind Ms. Moss, we think the video showed off exactly what it was intended to display: Kate’s MILF body. And if…

Dear Topshop: Skirt Slits Are Awesome

Dearest Topshop,

We have a problem. Lately, I have purchased several skirts and dresses from your store. I love them. They are all adorable, fit perfectly, and have quickly become go-to items. However, they are all made of fabrics without much give and none of them have a detail that I think of a…

The Topshop Makeup Collection Is Here!

We’re pleasantly surprised by the new Topshop cosmetics line, which has finally landed in stores. In the past, we’ve felt pretty eh towards retailers that attempt to sell eyeshadow at the cash register, but Topshop has really lived up to expectations with some edgy packaging and lovely hues (we’re digging the hot pink cream blush…

Piglets + Paint = Squeal!

The Gladiator Jelly: What Happens When Trends Mate

Listen up, kids. There’s a reason we hound you about using protection. This is what happens when two trendy styles mate recklessly: bastard offspring. Say hello to Topshop’s gladiator jelly sandal, a lonely fashion that will likely never find its place in the world due to identity crisis issues.

What do you say?

Sneak Peek: Holy Summer Shopping At Topshop

The nails, the maxi-dresses, those floral platform shoes, oh my! Nothing gets us in the mood to shop like a behind-the-scenes-at-a-photo-shoot video. Drool. [Topshop]…

A Topshop Jacket Fresh Off The Edgy Japanese Runways

We’re used to Topshop for excellent Brit fashion and making the ’80s OK. Now we’re loving it more for an edgier side that’s surprisingly soft—like this asymmetrical linen “Waterfall” jacket that looks like it walked off the Yohji runway. So many options: wear under a blazer for a flourished layer look, keep on the back…

Wear ‘Til They’re Dead Sandals

Everyone needs a perfect spring sandal. We’re talking about the type of shoe that’s basic and comfy enough to go with your usual outfits, but also has a little something extra for your fancier ones. That’s why we’re loving these Frances-Stud flats by Topshop. Pink leather, gold trim, and a braided design down the front…

May We Introduce You To Denties?

As we watch them get ever thinner and tighter jeans certainly seem to be on a pretty clear trend path. Taking that notion to extremes, Topshop presents these “denim look” boyshorts (OK, so they’re not real jeans, but still). What would you call these? Denties? Junderwear? Jeanderpants? [$8, Topshop]…

Architecture For Your Ears

When the worlds of fashion and architecture meet, brilliant designs are formed. Bring back the era of Art Deco with these silver earrings, which are simple yet structured to fit in with this winter’s trend of bold shoulders and exaggerations. Since the design matches the late ’20s and ’30s, fabricate a story about the history…

What’s Up With All The Crop Tops?

The last time we saw a crop top, it was on A.C. Slater, which doesn’t bode well from a fashion viewpoint. Now, it appears the crop top has officially come back in style. After seeing them all over the spring runways, it seems buyers have, well, bought into the look. We’re seeing examples at many…

Jonathan Saunders’ Topshop Collection Vaguely Britney-Justin Circa 2001

It designer Jonathan Saunders’s collection for Topshop hits stores today. It’s a very limited line with a handful of T-shirts and denim creations and we love. But is it just us or does this particular patchwork denim corset/skirt combo look vaguely reminiscent of Britney and Justin’s famous matching denim formal wear from 2001? Saunders would…

Topshop Mesh High Heels

The mesh trend that started with YSL’s cage heel hasn’t lost steam in our style books. While we’d like to own the high fashion stuff, Topshop’s affordable mesh high heels do the trick, creating a look that’s edgy and industrial but incredibly sexy at the same time. A Velcro fastening brings something extra to these…

Topshop Does Louis Vuitton Bunny Ears On A Budget

Louis Vuitton’s now-famous bunny ears retail for about $335, which, given that you have to tie them yourself, is a bit steep for us. To remedy the situation, Topshop has just knocked them off at a lower price ($36!) and with a more convenient headband attachment. Yes, this remains a particularly ridiculous accessory, but they’re…
