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 of your desk chair as an office cover-up once they start cranking the A/C, or pair with tailored shorts and heels for a smart biz-casual style. For the long-haired ladies, we’d love to see this paired with a high, tight bun.
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 make these cute kicks the type of noticeable item your friends will want the deets on. Our recommendation: “Ohhh … I got these in a little indie boutique somewhere, I forget where.” Otherwise, you’re going to have a case of copycats on your hands. (Or feet.)
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?

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 of the earrings through the generations of your family. There’s a conversation starter.

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 of our favorite major retailers. Topshop, in fact, has gone crop-crazy: Their website now has an entire section devoted to the style. Thing is, we haven’t actually seen anyone rocking this look in real life. Have you? Maybe it’s just not warm enough yet.
Think crop tops are total crap? If not, how would you wear one? Midriff-baring or with a camisole underneath? [Topshop] Keep reading »
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 probably deny such a link, and says his inspiration comes from elsewhere: “My collection for Topshop this season has been inspired by sportswear and workwear, as well as the bold and graphic shapes of the Memphis movement. It’s perfect for urban city dwellers.”
Still, we kind of see it—do you? Get a look at the rest of the collection after the jump! Keep reading »
