We’re still recovering from the Olympics party and a patriotic summer of red, white and blue. So what better way to stay in the party mood than with a super hot and topical collection from Topshop…Opening Ceremony for Topshop no less. We love the mix of tough material, minimalist shapes and exposed zips.
Or should that be erases eyebrows?!
Kelly Osbourne has been snapped wearing a stylish Topshop cut-out summer dress (that is or was in the sale *gasp*) with bleached brows. Apparently the radical beauty statement was for a fashion shoot but she has kept the look and it is striking (along with her fantastically playful plastic Chanel earrings).
Better dye them again in time for AW12 though Kelly, big brows are BACK!
Victoria’s Secret model Alessanda Ambrosio stepped out in one of AW12’s hottest micro-trends – studded boots- early this week and the good news is, that you can get similar versions on the high street that are flat, so you avoid falling into the sartorial trap of looking like a rhinestone cowgirl.
Yes we’ve jumped on the Jubilee bandwagon and here our twelve top jubilee buys to celebrate in style.
Hello sunshine (at last) we can now wear 50s summer dresses and all those pastels we’ve been hoarding – hurray! And what better thing to team it with than pointy shoes and super cute retro cat’s eyes sunglasses a la Prada. Enjoy x
It’s received mixed reviews so far but the Arcadia heiress and once Made in Chelsea star’s shoe collection has landed in Topshop at last. There are seven styles in the Chloe Jade Green (CJG) collection, all with trademark green soles….and they are all super super high.
The fat flatforms and stacked heels come at an interesting time, as fifties style shoes, most notably seen at Prada and Celine are all the rage (although Versace is still plumping for maximum height – even model Lindsey Wixson couldn’t cope!) The question is, will heel lovers love CJG shoes? They are pricier than Topshop’s usual shoes but much like Cheryl Cole’s collection for StylistPick are made from luxe leather – these even have leather soles. Will you be hot footing it to Topshop to bag a pair?
Picnic hampers as handbags has to be one of SS12’s tastiest micro-trends. While Dolce & Gabbana’s golden baskets were catwalk favourites and cost a lot (a lifetime’s worth of gourmet sarnies) the trend translates really well for the high street with cute wicker offerings everywhere. We’ll be plumping for a big boxy number for maximum snackability…or a tiny novelty wicker bag in the shape of something quirky for fun summer nights.
We love it when celebs make a casual look their own – especially when we can actually afford to copy it! So thank you Jessica Alba for wearing Topshop’s fabulous printed cropped trousers for £40 and a striking Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet jumper – proving you can totally do sequins in the daytime.
