TOPSHOP:5 Ways To Style Topshop’s New Vintage Bazaar Trend

Topshop’s latest trend edit ‘Vintage Bazaar‘ has arrived and it encapsulates everything we love about vintage clothing – without us having to rummage through a charity shop for hours to find all the gems. It’s all about the styling with this trend: think oversized blazer coats paired with retro floral dresses and croc ankle boots, or flowy blouses, high-waist shorts and mules. Keep scrolling to discover five ways to style the collection so you will totally get away with saying ‘it’s vintage’. We won’t tell if you won’t…

  1. Change your spots
    Meet the new trending jean everyone is talking about – mid waist, bleach wash and a split hem to show off those new shoes. Pair the old-school classic with a leopard print top, a pearl bag and yellow tinted glasses to put a sepia filter on everything in sight.
  2. Oh so ’70s
    The hero dress of the campaign is the ultimate multitasker – perfect for weddings, work, weekends and anything else your diaries got in store. Here we’ve paired it with biker boots and a mini white bag but some mules would also work perfectly for any more formal occasions.
  3. Collegiate chic
    Look like you’ve just stepped out of a ’70s high school show in our Brooklyn slogan tee and yellow check blazer. Go for all-white everywhere else to keep the rest of the look subdued and crisp. We’re obsessed with this look if we do say so ourselves…
  4. Fembot cool
    Is Spring here yet? This vinyl skirt and floral top duo is giving us total Austin Power vibes with a 2020 twist. Tie in the green on the top with this croc bag and throw on a pair of fresh white trainers to keep the look easy.
  5. Chasing knee highs
    Channel Twiggy in the ultimate ’60s look we’ll never tire of – a mini dress with knee high boots. A little black bag with a matching headband are the perfect accessories and some gold hoops never go amiss as the finishing touch.

TOPSHOP:7 Pictures Of Kate Moss In The ’90s You Might Not Have Seen Before

No one does that truly nonchalant, off-duty style quite like Kate Moss, making her one of the undisputed fashion icons of our generation. It all kicked off for the British supermodel in the ’90s, so, to celebrate her 46th birthday today, we decided to take a look back the era that made her who she is today. From iconic backstage shots, to candid after-party moments, keep scrolling to discover our favourite vintage photos of the ultimate supermodel that you probably haven’t seen before…

  1. Isaac Mizrahi Spring Summer New York Fashion Week – 1995
    Here’s a fresh-faced Kate Moss in her most classic ’90s form: strutting the runway in minimal makeup and messy hair. Modelling a mismatching bikini with a trench as a cover-up by designer Isaac Mizrahi, she’s suddenly got us gasping for some winter sun.
  2. 25th birthday at the Versace party – 1999
    Kate always knew how to celebrate her birthday in style, as seen her at her 25th which she celebrated at a party in Paris hosted by none other than Donatella Versace. In fact, all her birthday parties have been pretty iconic: just think back to her 21st at Viper Rooms in LA or her infamous 30th Beautiful and the Damned themed party.
  3. Milan fashion week 1995
    Backstage photos of Kate Moss are our ultimate favourite and this one definitely has to be up there. We don’t know if it’s the soon-to-be-slicked hair, the bright eyeshadow or how she’s ever-so-nonchalantly enjoying what looks like a cheese batch. You choose…
  4. Versus afterparty in New York – 1995
    This paparazzi image of Kate at an afterparty in New York is everything we imagine the supermodel life to be. From the strap of her quintessentially ’90s slip dress falling off her shoulder to her tousled hair, this look encapsulated everything we love about Kate’s effortless style.
  5. Backstage at Fendi Spring 1995 Ready to Wear in Milan
    Another great backstage moment captures Kate doing her own makeup before the Fendi show in Milan. The leather biker jacket and her messy-mousey hair are very reminiscent of the days when she was dating Johnny Depp and basically invented the highly sought-after grunge girl look.
  6. Gianni Versace Catwalk 1995
    If you’re a true Kate Moss fan, you’re probably familiar with the photos of her closing the Versace show in a sparkling bridal ensemble and Gianni Versace himself by her side. This look probably isn’t quite as famous, but we just can’t get enough of it.
  7. Steve Coogan 1st Night Party in London 1998
    If you ask us, Kate Moss’ party looks are just as cool now as they were then. This little black dress is classic Kate and we’re loving the darker hairdo to match. If only we knew what this conversation was about…

H&M:13 Cultural Events To Look Forward To In 2020 If You Love Fashion

If you ask us, the best way to tackle that January Blues is looking ahead at all the exciting things coming up this year – especially since, when it comes to fashion, we’re in for a treat in 2020. From major retrospective exhibitions on some of the world’s most-coveted luxury brands to West End renditions of our favourite fashion films, these are the events to pen in your diary now…

  1. Copenhagen Fashion Week – 28th – 31st January
    Copenhagen Fashion Week might not match the scale of its counterparts in New York, London, Paris and Milan, but it certainly comes close in terms of calibre.

If you’re a fan of the nonchalant Nordic look, check out the nine stylish Scandi girls you need to follow in time for Copenhagen Fashion Week here.

  2. ‘The Real Thing’ at the Fashion Space Gallery – 7th February – 2nd May
    We’ll always remember logo-mania as one of the biggest trends of the 2010s: everywhere we looked we were confronted with bold graphic logos emblazoned across T-shirts, branded prints on scarves and signature buckles on handbags. The logos of luxury brands will always symbolise status in fashion but as long as these real items exist, so will the fakes. The Real Thing explores ideas of ‘aspiration, ownership, authenticity’ alongside the disruptive creative power of fashion bootleg. It will raise questions about capitalism, consumption and identity whilst critically interrogating how we relate to brands now.
    The Real Thing is showing at the Fashion Space Gallery, London, from 7th February – 2nd May.
  3. The Oscars – 10th February
    Thanks to awards season, the first two months of the year are always packed with fabulous film and red carpet fashion! The Golden Globes are already behind us, so it’s the 92nd Academy Award ceremony on the 10th February that everyone’s looking forward to now. Check out the Oscar nominations that were announced this Monday and get ready for a night of great cinema, inspiring speeches and spectacular Hollywood style.
    The Oscar Academy Awards will take place at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood, USA, on 10th February.
  4. Pretty Woman: The Musical – 13th February
    When it comes to on-screen style inspiration, Pretty Woman is up there with the best of them. But not only does this film offer great fashion from ’90s LA, it’s also got a hilarious script, an uplifting storyline, and a star-studded cast. So, it goes without saying that we’ve got high hopes for the musical rendition that will be choreographed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell and set to a soundtrack by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance. Book tickets for February now!
    Pretty Woman: The Musical is showing at Piccadilly Theatre, London, from 13th February onwards.
  5. ‘Kimono: Kyoto To Catwalk’ at the Victoria & Albert Museum- 29th February – 21st June
    The traditional Kimono has been around since the 17th Century but its significance in society and culture has evolved significantly since then! This exhibition at the V&A explores the “sartorial, aesthetic and social significance of the kimono” through the ages using paintings, prints, film and clothing. Check out the original Star Wars costumes – which were modelled around the kimono design – or the Jean Paul Gautier creation worn by Madonna in her Nothing Really Matters music video and discover how the classic kimono has inspired fashion designers around the world.
    Kimono: Kyoto To Catwalk is showing at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, from 29th February – 21st June.
  6. ‘Cecil Beaton’s Bright Young Things’ at the National Portrait Gallery – 12th March – 7th June
    Featuring everyone from actress Tallulah Bankhead to modernist poet Iris Tree, Princesse de Faucigny-Lucinge to glamorous socialites Edwina Mountbatten, – this upcoming exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery will immerse its audience within the glitz and glam of the ‘Bright Young Things’ during the ’20s and ’30s. Explore through photography how photographer Beaton evolved from middle-class schoolboy to stylish society figure and get lost in an elaborate and creative golden era of British society which celebrated the avant-garde, intellectuals, socialites and partygoers.
    Cecil Beaton’s Bright Young Things is showing at the National Portrait Gallery, London, from 12th March – 7th June.
  7. ‘Andy Warhol’ at the Tate Modern – 12th March – 6th sept
    With iconic images of Marilyn Monroe, Coca-Cola and Campbell’s soup cans, as well as works never seen before in the UK on display, this major retrospective opening at the Tate Modern in March has got to be one of the biggest art events of the year. Don’t miss out on seeing the prints that defined a generation and made waves in the world of modern art!
    Andy Warhol is showing at the Tate Modern, London, from 12th March – 6th September.
  8. Coachella Festival – 10th – 19th April
    Unlike our many British festivals, which conjure images of messy crowds, mud-drenched wellies and flooded tents, Coachella is well known for being a hot haven for the coolest celebs dressed up in their best bohemian festival gear. We can’t wait to catch the biggest performances on TV and get inspired by the attendees effortless summer style!
    Coachella Festival will take place at the Empire Polo Club, California, USA, from 10th – 19th April.
  9. The Met Gala – 4th May
    If you’re a fashion fan, then you’ll already know that the Met Gala occurs on the first Monday of May and marks the opening of the Costume Institute‘s annual fashion exhibition. It’s one of the industry’s biggest annual events and will consume your Instagram feed for days afterwards. Last year, the theme ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ inspired all sorts including a glowing gown worn by Zendaya, a chandelier-shaped number worn by Katy Perry and a shocking masked ensemble sported by Ezra Miller.

    One of the best pop-culture news of last year was that Lizzie McGuire would once again be gracing our TV screens – this time as a 30 year old living in NYC. Just as the original series served up endless ’90s style inspiration, we’re sure that we can count on the 2020 reboot for similarly fun fashion and dreamy big city backdrops!
    The new series of Lizzie McGuire is expected to be released in the second half of 2020.
  11. ‘Prada. Front And Back’ at the Design Museum – 1st September – 31st December
    Believe it or not, this is the first major exhibition dedicated entirely to the iconic Italian fashion house, so it’s bound to be big! Prada. Front And Back aims to explore the house’s rich and successful history from all angles – both the public facing finished products as well as the creative approach, inspirations and infrastructure that support their production. Through handbags, shoes and some of the most iconic pieces from landmark collaborations, the exhibition will investigate how Miuccia Prada and her husband Patrizio Bertelli have elevated Prada into the leading luxury brand it is today.
    Prada. Front And Back is showing at the Design Museum, London, from 1st September – 31st December.
  12. ‘Frieze London’ at Regent’s Park – 8th – 11th October

TOPSHOP:5 Pieces You Need To Nail The Off-Duty Street Style Look

Long gone are the days when off-duty model street style consisted of a pair of skinny jeans, a baggy T-shirt and some chunky boots: all our favourite runway stars are now sporting a whole new uniform of relaxed tailored pieces and elevated basics. It’s the coolest, most put-together yet effortless look around at the moment – worn by the likes of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid – so it’s definitely one to try at home. Here are the five key pieces you need…

  1. The Slouchy Trouser
    First up, the slouchy trouser: at first glance, a bit more formal than a pair of skinny jeans but they’re actually way more comfortable to wear – the wide tailored cut gives you some extra room to breathe! Tone down the smart-trouser vibes for your day-to-day by matching your pair with a extra casual tank top.
  2. The Tailored Coat
    When the temperatures drop, you’ll usually catch the off-duty models in some sort of extra-large and slouchy longline coat. Sticking to a neutral colour palette of greys, camels and blues will ensure your new investment piece matches all your outfits and if you do feel like mixing things up a bit, go for one in glossy vinyl.
  3. The Oversized Shirt
    Some shirts were made for the office, others were born for a much more exciting and varied existence. The trick is to be inventive – wear yours semi-done up or half-tucked, try layering with a sheer option or don it as a dress when spring comes around!
  4. The Relaxed Blazer
    Whilst, for now, you might need to layer this key piece with an extra knit or coat, a relaxed blazer is the perfect outerwear option for when the temperatures start to pick up. To make it less ‘workwear’ and more ‘modern off-duty’, go for a slightly oversized number and pair with anything from printed trousers or jeans to shorts and dresses.
  5. The Straight-Leg Jean
    Skinny jeans may no longer reign supreme, however denim is still a very important element of the off-duty models’ go-to uniform. Just like all their staple pieces, their fit of choice is simply more relaxed. So, opt for one of our latest dad jeans which all have the perfect straight-leg cut. Stuck on how to style the new shape? Check out our styling guide here.

TOPSHOP:The Underrated French Style Icon We’re Getting Inspired By This Season

Seberg, the biopic on actress Jean Seberg, is finally out in UK cinemas this Friday. Starring Kristen Stewart, it tells the story of how Jean was targeted by the FBI because of her support of the civil rights movement ultimately leading to her life and career being destroyed. Although American, Jean spent most of her life in France which quite clearly transpires in her personal style – so in honour of the film’s release, we took a look back at her most memorable outfits and why they make her the underrated French style icon you need to know about. Keep scrolling to discover our five favourites, plus the film stills featuring Kristen Stewart they inspired…

  1. Mellow yellow
    Yellow featured heavily in Jean’s wardrobe, perfectly complementing her pale complexion and platinum hair, so of course we’ll also be seeing Kristen in yellow as curated by the film’s costume designer Michael Wilkinson.
  2. ’70s minimal
    Jean’s style was defined by strong silhouettes and lots of monochrome pieces, usually only accessorised with a few pieces of carefully selected jewellery. Simplicity with a personal touch can go a long way.
  3. Jet-set chic
    When travelling, Jean opted for chic tailored pieces paired with elegant leather accessories and a cap to avoid any hair dilemmas on the go. Proof that it’s always worth investing in a collection of timeless and comfortable staples.
  4. Evening glam
    Simple with a twist is probably how to describe Jean’s style the most accurately, and that also went for evening wear. A one-colour dress in an A-line silhouette was her go-to, but always elevated with a fun sleeve or neckline to show off her iconic pixie haircut.
  5. All blue
    Another key colour in Jean’s closet was blue, matching her eyes which were always highlighted with a signature flick of black eyeliner. We love the extra detail of the colour-coordinated hair bow.
    Seberg is in cinemas from 10th January

TOPSHOP:5 Of The Top Hair Trends Of 2020 According To The Experts At Blue Tit London

A new year always brings a whole new host of trends along with it, spanning everything from fashion to beauty and lifestyle. When it comes to hair, and with the climate crisis at the forefront of everyone’s minds right now, who better to turn to than a sustainable hair salon? That’s why we asked the experts at the Blue Tit salon in Topshop’s Oxford Circus store to give us a look ahead at the biggest hair trends coming to you in 2020. From hair treatments based on the moon phases to sustainable hair accessories, keep scrolling to find out what they are…

  1. Scalp analysis and bespoke treatments
    Hair treatments are set to become increasingly more holistic and personalised come 2020 says Petah Maian, the Senior Editor at Retail Intelligence, so Blue Tit now offers five bespoke in-salon, fully organic and sustainable Oway treatments. So whether you’re suffering from oily hair or are looking for some full-on relaxation, a personalised microscopic scalp analysis will find the perfect treatment for you to transform your hair with.
  2. Lunar calendar treatments
    Into horoscopes? This year we’ll be taking it a step further as detox cleansing treatments that follow the moon phases are going to be all the rage. For a Waxing Moon (from the new moon to the full moon), where the roots will absorb nourishment, it’s the perfect time to treat your hair with moisturising, antioxidant and fortifying ingredients. Then for a Waning Moon (from the full moon to the new moon), the scalp should rest with a soothing and purifying treatment.
  3. Longlasting hair accessories
    We’re sure you’re used to seeing pearl hair clips and fancy headbands everywhere by now and 2020 predictions suggest they aren’t going away anytime soon. But Declan Haworth, Blue Tit’s Colour Director, suggests we stop ‘discarding things into landfill’ and start investing in good quality, timeless hair accessories or, better still, look in vintage stores for things like broaches and hat pins to use instead.
  4. Biodynamic hair farming
    A biodynamic method consists of the purest and cleanest type of cultivation – meaning it’s free of pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and synthetic fertilisers. Sounds up your street? To be in on this new method, Blue Tit salons exclusively use the world’s first professional haircare, treatment and colour line, Oway, which is cruelty free, made with pure essential oils and contains no toxic ingredients. Win win win.
  5. Zero waste
    The strive to achieve zero-waste is taking the beauty industry by storm. If, like many of us, you’re looking for a way to make your next hair cut more sustainable you’ll be pleased to know Blue Tit is 95% plastic free with a goal to up this to 99% by the end of the year. Not to mention, they use 100% biodegradable towels from EcoHeads, recycle over 90% of their waste and use recycled or up-cycled materials wherever possible. It doesn’t get much better than this…
