TOPSHOP:5 Skater Girl Looks Inspired By Avril Lavigne We Can’t Wait To Recreate

Avril Lavigne turns 35 today! Time to reminisce back to the days when we were listening to Sk8er Boi on repeat and felt like the coolest girl around. To be honest, we still go crazy whenever the song comes on at a ’90s party. To celebrate the original rock chick’s birthday, we looked back at her best skater girl looks and recreated them with some new-in Topshop pieces…

  1. The school girl look
    Combining a checked skirt with a cosy jumper and some chunky boots will never get old. We love the school girl vibe this look gives off. Once it gets colder, just add a pair of tights to keep warm.
  2. All black everything
    Pay tribute to Avril’s punk attitude by channeling her classic all-black-everything outfits. Extra points if you make like her and add some striped socks to add a special twist.
  3. Camo print cargo trousers and Camouflage
    Cargo trousers are back and we just love how effortlessly cool they are, especially if they come in classic camouflage. Add a khaki longline jacket to achieve the ultimate Avril look. Optional: add a patch to your jacket to give it a personal touch…
  4. Animal print
    The animal print trend is still going strong (years after Avril rocked it in the ’00s). We got inspired by her and picked a pair of snake print trousers worn with a Boutique leather top as the perfect autumn companion.
  5. Colour splash
    Believe it or not, Avril occasionally also rocked colour! Especially as it starts to get darker earlier it’s a great idea to wear bold colours like this bright pink jacket. Wear yours with a band shirt, a black midi skirt and some chunky boots.

ZARA:The 5 Shoe Trends Everyone Is Wearing in New York, London, and Milan

“Reliable.” That’s the keyword for trends this fashion month. After scanning fashion week photos from New York to Milan, we can confirm that the overarching theme for street style footwear trends this season is a return of the classics. Old faithfuls, if you will. The type of shoes that look good, feel good, and work with just about every kind of style. Some of this year’s shoe trends were popular in recent seasons, but there’s one style that we haven’t seen at the top of the fashion charts for quite some years. All of them are shoe styles that we can—and will—actually wear in our everyday lives this fall. Praise be!
The season’s shoe trends are led by two chunky styles, which comes as no surprise after a heavy-soled summer in Tevas. For those who love heels, we’ve seen Bottega Veneta influence two major heel trends, one more classic and one more trend-driven. Of course, there have been a few cult pieces—a few from Prada, plus a dreamy pair of snakeskin Jimmy Choo boots—though fewer than we’ve been accustomed to seeing for the last few years.
With investment pieces as the top choice this season, it’s no surprise that many of the shoe and boot trends worn on repeat across fashion month echo the shoe trends we’ve spotted at Zara, as they are not entirely specific to 2019.
Keep scrolling to discover the five shoe trends worn on repeat across fashion month and then see how the street style set is wearing them.
A total classic, knee-high boots have taken over street style outfits, and we’re here for it. Though most of us may have continued wearing knee-high boots perennially, they have largely been absent from the fashion forefront in favor of ankle boots until now. First spotted on the Celine F/W 19 runway in a look inspired by 1980s bourgeois Parisian woman, we’ve seen so many different knee-high boots parading outside the shows.
Style Notes: One new thing about the way the street style set has been wearing knee-high boots this season is the way in which they’ve been tucking them into loose-fitting trousers. We love how Lou Lou pairs this look with an oversize waistcoat.
Style Notes: This snake-print pair from Jimmy Choo has been among the most popular so far, paired with dresses and trousers alike.
Style Notes: We’ve also seen them being worn in a very classic way: with jeans and a sweater. Surprisingly odd how this look is novel for influencers.
Style Notes: Emili Sindlev always tries trends out with her own personal twist. We love the color combos of this outfit. Her olive suede boots tie the greens and browns together beautifully.
Style Notes: For a more vintage take, Bettina Looney opts for a wool skirt, oversize blazer, silk scarf, and yellow-hued sunnies to go with her brown knee-highs.
Style Notes: Camille Charrière’s patent Prada boots had fashion editors going wild on her Instagram page. Paired with her business shorts and tweed jacket, her look is very Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Working Girl.
From Prada (as spotted on Jessie Bush above) to Arket to the classic Dr. Martens, we imagine we’re going to be seeing these boots all season long. Like chunky sandals, these pair so well with the puffy-dress trend we’ve been seeing across fashion month, as they balance out the silhouette.
Style Notes: We love how Erika Boldrin gives an edge to her tennis outfit–inspired look with her Dr. Martens–esque pair.
Style Notes: While they do look so good with dresses of any kind, we’ve also seen them paired with shorts and a jacket.
Style Notes: As an updated grunge-inspired look, Charlotte Groeneveld wears her chunky Chelsea boots with a plaid skirt suit.
Style Notes: If you want to commit fully to the utility/workwear-inspired look, try your boots with an oversize anorak like Tiffany Hsu.
We can absolutely attribute this shoe trend to Bottega Veneta, who took this trend and turned it into a phenomenon this summer with its now sold-out mesh-and-chain heels.
Style Notes: We’ve been increasingly spotted barely there shoes, and these mesh heels offer and fresh version. We love how Erika has styled her cardi and khaki trousers with her mesh heels.
Style Notes: Who What Wear’s editor in chief, Kat Collings, donned a pair of Neous mesh heels with her Jacquemus dress and claimed via Instagram that after walking all day at NYFW, they were still comfortable.
Style Notes: Deborah Reyner Sebag’s nude mesh heels are nearly invisible, which works with her statement-piece leather jumpsuit.
Open-toe mules—aka Carrie Bradshaw shoes—have been a favorite for a few seasons, but it’s great to see them still going strong. Doina Ciobanu opts for a bright blue pair to match her bag and contrast her pink ensemble.
Style Notes: Bottega Veneta (honestly if I had a dollar for every time I’ve written that during fashion month) brought out a quilted pair that were quickly adopted as favorites among influencers.
Style Notes: Of course, the Bottega Veneta ones weren’t the only pair spotted on the streets of fashion’s capitals. These Prada silk mules were another favorite among influencers in Milan.
Style Notes: We’ve seen so many blue pairs of open-toe mules this season (also spotted in Zara), but we love how designer Gilda Ambrosio goes from a head-to-toe look with this hue.
Style Notes: Pairing this brown Boyy pair with a jumpsuit is a good, simple two-step outfit idea for minimalists to try this season.
Style Notes: Matching her white open-toe mules to her sunglasses creates a frame-like effect for this showgoer’s all-pink outfit.
Tamu McPherson’s Prada shoes were spotted all over Milan Fashion Week, but the shoe style more generally is one of the top shoe trends of 2019. For those who love flat shoes, these simply work with any outfit, so it’s no wonder they are becoming wildly popular.
Style Notes: This showgoer proves that business professional can still be fashion. Just make sure you’ve swapped your kitten heels for chunky brogues when donning a pencil skirt and button-down top.
Style Notes: Though these might seem like a trend that minimalists will prefer, the shoes were spotted as part of some very loud outfits too.
Style Notes: We love how the Blustein twins styled their chunky brogues with pale slip dresses and floral shirts layered underneath.

ZARA:8 Fall Trends I’m 100% Behind—and How I’m Wearing Them

After spotting fall’s biggest trends on the runways months back and now seeing them trickle into the new-arrivals sections at my favorite retailers, I couldn’t wait for autumn so that I could test out what’s new in fashion. The runway is a great place to take inspiration from, and I’m always ready to incorporate the latest trends and micro-trends into my wardrobe and put my own spin on them.

Right now, I’m loving pieces that are skewing either minimal or maximal—with everything from tailored shirting and sleek leather trench coats to chunky statement jewelry and bold orange shades topping my list. Here, I’m test-driving eight trends I’m excited about for fall, with outfits that feel true to my personal sense of style. Go on to discover the fall trends I’m wearing now, and shop my edit of pieces to add to your wardrobe and make your own for the new season.
Orange
Who What Wear’s market editor Judith Jones covered the color trends of the season and noted that orange will be huge following its presence on the F/W 19 runways. I tend to stick with neutrals over bold shades but discovered that the color was actually easier to pull off than I originally thought—especially when sticking with a classic piece like this tweed jacket.
Scoop Necklines
I’ve been seeing scoop necklines popping up everywhere from Bottega Veneta to Pixie Market and think they’re the workhorse fall staple to wear with just about anything. Here, I paired one with wide-leg shorts, but moving into fall, I’ll be wearing one with everything from trouser-style jeans to leather skirts.
Slouchy Knee-High Boots
Ankle boots have ruled my closet for years, but more recently, I’ve been collecting knee-high versions to wear with anything from jeans to long skirts and midi dresses. They’re truly a great fall boot style that has proven to be extremely versatile.
Open-Front Shirting
I’ve been spotting open-front shirting all over the street style scene at fashion month and wanted to try it out for myself. I love the idea of breathing life into a collared shirt by leaving it unbuttoned from the waist down. I’ll definitely be repeating this in different iterations in the months ahead.
A Reinvented Suit
For fall, classic wardrobe staples have been given tweaks that make them feel a bit cooler and more modern than the originals. Here, I tried out suiting with a few twists—an oversize blazer paired with flared, legging-style pants.
An All-Leather Look
Full leather looks instantly read as luxe and will no doubt be one of the most-worn trends this fall. To try it for myself, I invested in this faux leather trench coat from Nanushka (there’s a similar dress version below) to wear with these two-tone H&M boots.
Big Bags
Big bags have been one of the most talked-about fall trends—and also one of the most controversial. They were spotted everywhere from Jacquemus to Loewe to Maison Margiela and more recently have proven to be popular on the street style scene. While I’m not ready to carry around a giant tote bag, I am embracing bags bigger than the smaller sizes I’ve been wearing for the last few years.
Chunky Jewlery
Market editor Nicole Eshaghpour spotlighted the chunky-necklace trend when it started to bubble up this summer, and it’s one that I’m 100% behind. I’ve found that it’s easiest to wear with streamlined pieces like the bodysuit-and–slip skirt outfit here.

TOPSHOP:5 Staple Pieces You Need To Create The Perfect Autumn Wardrobe

As you can probably tell from the colder mornings and greyer skies, today is officially the first day of autumn. But it’s not all bad news: in the world of fashion, autumn marks the beginning of layering, transitional jackets and lots of texture. So, the change of season means a wardrobe update is due! To get you started, we’ve looked to the biggest autumn trends and rounded up five ultimate wardrobe staples you need to take you through this season in style…

  1. The shacket
    The shacket is your ultimate choice for that awkward time when you’ll be freezing in just a top, but too hot in a proper coat. Half shirt, half jacket – the shacket is the perfect piece to slowly transition you into coat season.
  2. The faux fur bag
    A faux fur bag adds tons of texture to your autumn outfits and will be the most fun, super on-trend addition to your wardrobe. Keep it simple in black and beige tones or go all out in bright limes and animal prints.
  3. The pleather trouserA pair of jeans is a wardrobe staple all year round, but a faux-leather trouser is a slicker rendition of your everyday bottom. Paired with chunky knits and boots or a nice top and heels for a night out, the leather trouser is the unsung hero for all your autumn outfits.
  4. The dark floral blouse
    We’re not ready to let go of florals just yet, so we’ve got a bunch of blouses here in darker shades to take with you into the colder months. They’re a perfect go-to for both day and night when perfectly paired with all of your tougher pieces.
    An autumn staple guide wouldn’t be complete without a pair of killer boots to finish off any look. Pick your favourites in colour, fabric and shape to give any autumnal outfit a cool-girl edge. This season, we’re loving white leather and vinyl croc styles.

ZARA:These 8 Things Will Always Make You Look Richer Than You Are

You might assume that to look rich, you need to buy expensive things. However, looking rich isn’t just about flashy logos and jewelry so valuable it must be stored in a safe. There are little tricks that can make any outfit look more elevated, from ensuring your shirts are always crisp to the colors that look high-quality. Keep scrolling to see the 10 things that will always make you look richer than you are (without sending your bank balance into the red).
Look Like You Never Do Your Own Laundry
An easy way to look expensive is to make sure your clothes are as immaculate as possible. In our book, nothing looks as luxurious as a crisply pressed shirt. You don’t actually have to go to the dry cleaner; just invest in a decent steamer.
You might assume that to look rich, you need to buy expensive things. However, looking rich isn’t just about flashy logos and jewelry so valuable it must be stored in a safe.

Keep scrolling to see the 10 things that will always make you look richer than you are (without sending your bank balance into the red).
Wear All-White Outfits
Tonal outfits tend to look more expensive, but an all-white ensemble looks especially sharp.
Anti-Commuter Shoes That Say “I Travel Exclusively by Taxi”
Commuting stops most of us from wearing heels, so power pumps give the impression that you travel by taxi more than anything else.
Wear Silks and Cottons—Skip Polyester
Investing in quality fabrics such as silks and cottons adds an air of sophistication to your look
Carry an Umbrella to Maintain Your Blow-Dry
The key to looking expensive is to appear well-groomed, and an oversize, sturdy umbrella with a wooden handle will ensure your immaculate blow-dry stays in place.
Forget the Puffer—Wear a Proper Overcoat or Trench
A tailored coat or classic trench instantly elevates any outfit.
Don’t Carry Too Much Stuff
Mini handbags have become a status symbol. What else do you need besides your keys, lipstick, and a credit card?
Have Immaculate Luggage (With a Matching Set)
To invest in beautiful luggage, you need to travel a lot, and nothing signals a healthy bank account like a matching set of suitcases or trunks.

TOPSHOP:5 ‘Friends’ Style Lessons That Are Still Important 25 Years Later

The 25th anniversary of the first episode of Friends is this Sunday! Bringing us tears, laughter and most importantly fashion – the ten-season series blessed our screens with some of the most iconic ’90s looks ever. And it’s no secret that over two decades later we’re still trying to recreate that all-American Rachel Green-esque look. From timeless slip dresses to the no-bra rule, here are five style lessons from Friends we’ll be keeping with us forever…
Keep your wardrobe fully stocked with mom jeans and crop tops ensures you’ll always be living out your ’90s dreams. P.S. A bra is optional.
Double denim is a love or hate thing, but here’s Monica making a strong case for the Canadian Tuxedo. Totally ’90s.
Pyjama style slip dresses have been the in thing since early Hollywood. We actually have loads in stock that look like they’ve just come straight from Monica Geller’s wardrobe. You’re welcome.
In this first few series of Friends, you know before she got that major job at Ralph Lauren, Rachel worked at Central Perk and thus waitress chic was born.
Whilst often Rachel and Monica’s outfits were like seeing double, Phoebe Buffay’s individual style was almost as eccentric as her personality. We’re living for this oriental, purple polka dot combo.

H&M:H&M CONSCIOUS EXCLUSIVE FW19 CELEBRATES TEN SEASONS OF SUSTAINABLE FASHION

The mood in the H&M Conscious Exclusive FW19 collection is clear: get set to dress up! Suffused with the heady glamour of mysterious balls and dazzling parties from a bygone era, the collection fuses sumptuous after-dark sartorial hits with versatile wardrobe binders — and all through the lens of more sustainable fashion.
“The Conscious Exclusive collections at H&M have each been groundbreaking in their own way, so it’s very exciting to present our tenth collection, which proves that innovation never ceases: this season it incorporates recycled brass, recycled zinc and TENCELTM X REFIBRATM Lyocell, an exciting Lyocell fiber partly made from waste cotton, for the very first time. We are thrilled, too, that many of the innovations we have debuted with our more sustainable line have since been incorporated into our other fashion lines across the business. It’s vital that H&M keeps pushing the boundaries of future-facing fashion, proving to the world that glamour and sustainability go hand-in-hand,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, creative advisor at H&M.
Romantic dresses play a starring role in this second edition of the Conscious Exclusive collection in 2019: the China blue rose-printed jacquard prom dress and the floor-sweeping dusty pink tulle gown are all-eyes-on-me statement pieces next to sequined harlequin-patterned, ribbon-tied minis – all made from recycled polyester blends. Meanwhile, a sumptuous velvet recycled polyester suit with an embellished belt is as versatile as pretty lightweight knits in blends made out of TENCELTM Lyocell fibers and wool; and a beaded cape made partly with recycled glass beads, a ruffled velvet top made from recycled polyester, and a selection of exquisite hair pins made with a mix of recycled zinc and brass promise a super-spangled, scene-stealing effect.
“The starting points for the FW19 Conscious Exclusive collection were mysterious masquerade balls that took place in the 1960s. We were thinking about dazzling, one-off events where the anticipation in the build-up only increases the pleasure. We wanted to create special pieces that will stay in your wardrobe for years to come thanks to their endless versatility. Our customers will find that each piece can be styled according to their personality and mood; we hope these clothes are cherished and invested with many happy memories of glorious evenings spent having fun,” says Ella Soccorsi, designer at H&M.
About H&M Conscious Exclusive
Conscious Exclusive is a recurring collection of exquisite, premium pieces that celebrate the new season and showcase the increasing possibilities of more sustainable fashion with a focus on development and innovation. This season, along with recycled polyester, organic cotton and recycled glass, H&M introduces recycled brass and zinc, and TENCELTM X REFIBRATM Lyocell fibers, for the first time.
The FW19 Conscious Exclusive collection will be sold at hm.com and in selected stores starting September 26

H&M:YOUR NEW FALL WARDROBE

LUXE LAYERING
Camel, cognac, chestnut… No color palette is more fall than this one, and for AW19 we want to wear every shade of brown at once; layering super-soft turtlenecks under super-soft ponchos and tucking roomy pants into slouched-down thigh boots.

THE IT COLOR
If brown is fall’s forever color, light blue is its up-and-comer. Dressing for impact? Go head-to-toe. The key is to play with different materials — silk, cashmere, chunky knitwear — and wrap it up (pun intended) with an oversized scarf.
THE DREAM COAT
Classic, yet on trend. A long wool coat is a staple in every fall wardrobe. With its oversized lapels and sharp cut, this dream coat delivers a strong silhouette, which is best paired with thigh boots.
THE EVERYDAY UNIFORM
The fastest route to take your silk shirt from summer to fall? Layer it underneath a fine-knitted top or turtleneck. Merging fall’s classic color scheme — burgundy and beige — with pale blue makes this fall favorite feel fresh.
THE GLOVE GAME
The devil is in the details, and this season is all about putting classic ladylike accessories front and center. The latest item to be upgraded from detail to hero is the classic premium leather glove. Layer your pair over the sleeves of dresses, sweaters and, yes, even blazers.
THE TUCK
No, Drag Race fans, we’re not talking about THAT KIND of tuck. The tuck we’re referring to is the season’s most sought-after style: tucking high-waist pants into slouched-down shaft boots. Make your look stand out even more and double up with the perfect rib-knit tucked into your pants, too.
THE STATEMENT SUIT
Sometimes, all we want to do is turn it up. When you’re not in the mood for dazzling, over-the-top evening gowns, a luxe suit is the next best thing. This season’s favorite comes with contemporary details like slit sleeves and unexpected buttoning. Pop your shirt collar to add a carefree appeal.
IN (SENIOR) STYLE
Imagine coming to your grandmother’s house: antique furniture, boiled sweets, crossword puzzles — and a wardrobe full of cardigans and calf-length dresses. It’s about time we draw inspiration from her! Layer a balloon-sleeved cardigan over a color-matching silk dress, but take one (big) leap away from senior style and pair the timeless look with over-the-knee boots.
THE ALL-ROUND PIECE
Evidently, fall is all about earthy tones, but strong accent colors are a necessary addition. The season’s coziest must-have, the heavy knit turtleneck, comes in fuchsia and is best partnered with a color-clashing bottom.
