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 »
