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 »
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 shoes, which will work all year round. [$100, Topshop] Keep reading »
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 at least good for a costume…or a day when you’re feeling mischievous and know that work is going to be particularly boring.

We know you’re dying for one—as of Feb. 3, the masses will be able to buy their very own spiked sweat suit à la Rihanna. The suit was revealed as part of Topshop‘s collaboration previews and is created by U.K. designer Ashish Gupta. (Ann Sofie Back and Jonathan Saunders are also collaborating for spring.) Says Ashish: “Studs and spikes were a big part of my mainline collection this season, and it felt right to carry that through in some way for my range for Topshop. I love the contrast between soft sweatshirt fabric and metal spikes—it’s classic sportswear meets punk.” Check out more of the Ashish collection along with the duds from Ann Sofie Back and Jonathan Saunders, after the jump!

If these shoes are a question, the correct answer is yes. Jimmy Choo did H&M; now, Louise Goldin does Topshop. We love these studded pumps that look like porcupine spines for your feet. They come in chrome too and are a toned-down version of what Goldin’s models wore on the runway, sans crystals. We’ll take every color they’ve got, please. [MYKROMAG] Keep reading »
