TOPSHOP:5 Easy Street Style Looks You Can Actually Recreate And Wear Everyday

We all know how exciting street style can be, but what about the looks worn to grab a coffee or walk your dog? We looked to our favourite celebrities for inspiration that’s actually off duty and super easy to achieve and learnt that polished, elevated basics can be super chic when styled just the right way. These looks will see you through that awkward transitional phase, before we’re ready to embark on all the fun new spring fashion trends…

  1. Denim on the go
    Running late? This look is perfect for last-minute coffee dates and running errands.
    Throw an oversized jean jacket, a cap and a pair of sunglasses on top of your basic black leggings and hoodie and no one will know you didn’t actually get ready.
  2. Classic camel
    This monochrome look is perfect for your morning coffee and croissant run. An oversized trench and matching beige trousers will look very put together, even if you didn’t really have to think about it. Finish off the outfit with some tortoiseshell accessories for that ultimate Parisian flair.
  3. Black basics
    Blue jeans and a white top will never go out of style, but this season we’re pairing them with on-trend accessories like chunky boots and weaved cross-body bags. An oversized coat (and coffee in hand) will keep you warm while it’s still chilly out.
  4. Mint and mules
    If the sun is out, you can finally break out your new mules and they’re the perfect addition to relaxed mid-blue flares and our wardrobe hero: the cardigan top. This look is super effortless and accessories like sunglasses, a shoulder bag and gold hoop earrings add a chic touch.
  5. Busy blues
    If you’re looking for something a little more out there, opt for a cosy blue sweater and leather trouser combo. Pair this look with an oversized shirt-jacket, cool trainers and a cute matching mini bag. Paparazzi, look out for this one…

TOPSHOP:The Fabric Of You: Everything You Need To Know About Topshop’s Jeans Campaign 2020

As you’ve probably seen, we just launched our brand-new jeans campaign for 2020: The Fabric of You. But what is it all about? From the idea we’re championing this season to the trending fits of the moment and the cast of the campaign, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know here…

Topshop’s jeans campaign 2020
The Fabric of You encapsulates two things: what it is that makes you you, and how your jeans fit into that. It’s about denim, done your way – whether that’s about what you do wearing your jeans, how you style your jeans or what wearing jeans means to you and your life. The connection we have to our jeans goes beyond the connection we have with any other piece of clothing, and that’s exactly what we wanted to celebrate with this new Topshop Topman campaign.

The new fits to discover this season
You already know our iconic Jamies and Jonis, but have you met our latest arrivals? This season, we’re introducing two new pairs to our signature line-up that you just need to know about…

THE DAD JEANS

The dad is the latest jeans must-have and a new take on the beloved boyfriend jean. It’s made from non-stretch denim and comes with a button fly so has all the signature details of the retro pair you love but feels more modern. Designed to sit as a mid-rise and with a slightly loose leg, the dad jeans look great worn with chunky trainers.

THE RELAXED FLARE

This is the pair everyone will want to get their hands on now. With a high waist giving a more tailored look and a comfortable relaxed fit, the relaxed flare is the easiest new-season denim staple. Style yours with a ruffled top, a faux fur coat and a vintage-inspired belt or dress it down with a Breton top, trainers and a beret for that Parisian chic.

The cast starring in the campaign
Because we believe that the person wearing the jeans makes the jeans, we asked the cast of our denim campaign some questions to get to know them better. From their star sign to the best moment of their life and what makes them laugh, find out what makes them how they are and how that brings their jeans to life in our campaign video…
Find your perfect fit
Alongside our campaign, we also launched the latest instalment of the Topshop Jeans Fit Guide. Whether you’re after a classic skinny, a straight leg or a retro style – you’ll be able to find all the details you need to pick your perfect pair in there.

Find your fit…

How to take care of your new jeans
Now that you’ve found a great pair of new jeans, you’ll need to know how to take care of them properly. Good thing we just answered all your most pressing questions when it comes to denim, from getting tricky stains out of them to making them feel just as unique as you are.

Want to personalise your jeans?

Head to Topshop Oxford Circus between 13th and 23rd February 2020 to get your new jeans personalised for free. Pick from alterations with No One Famous Tailoring (12pm – 7pm, 13th – 22nd), customisation with Daisy Emerson (11.30am – 7.30pm, 17th – 22nd) and monograming or ripping with Hand & Lock (11am – 8pm, 17th – 23rd) and make your jeans look even cooler…

ZARA:4 Trends Anna Wintour Said She Loved Last Year—and 3 She Hated

You didn’t think we’d stop listening to Anna Wintour in 2020, did you? As we’ve reported before, the editor in chief’s Go Ask Anna video series for Vogue is a treasure trove of information and offers us rare glimpses inside her mind. Sometimes she tells us what not to wear to a job interview and other times she’ll recap the biggest runway trends. Whatever the content is, you know it will be insightful and informed coming from one of the biggest names in fashion.
Since we now have a full year of videos to look back on, we decided to take a walk down memory lane and revisit some of Wintour’s key messages from last year. Hint: Raffia is in, and all-black is out. Scroll down to shop four trends Wintour has approved of and find out the three trends she’d pass on.
Loved: Sleeveless Dresses
Last summer, Wintour was asked in a video about the best item to stay chic in hot weather. Her answer: sleeveless dresses.
Hated: Boring Sequin Dresses
Wintour’s February 2019 video for Vogue discussed what not to wear to black-tie events. “Don’t wear a boring sequin dress or a debutante-style dress just because you feel you should,” Wintour said. “I get the most pleasure and the most excitement, and I think the person who’s wearing it does as well, when I look at a woman who’s wearing something that I feel looks just like her.”
Loved: Trench Coats
When asked about the top trends for 2020, Wintour made sure to include trench coats on her list. Luckily, there are tons of affordable yet chic options out there.
Hated: All Black
“Just don’t wear all black,” Wintour said in a video last spring. “It seems too gloomy, as if one’s going to a funeral.” Instead, she suggested “adding some color or favorite piece of jewelry or maybe white boots. Just something that’s a little bit unexpected.”
Loved: Bucket Bags
Last month, Wintour was asked about the best accessories trends and she made sure to call out bucket bags. “Bucket bags and more bucket bags, in leather, in canvas, in suede, in every possible fabric that you can think of,” she said.
Hated: Neon Leggings
In August 2019, Wintour revealed in a Vogue video that she had seen “far too many neon leopard-print leggings, something that I would definitely not want to see again.”
Loved: Raffia
“We’re seeing a lot of linen and raffia fabrics that are very organic and natural,” Wintour said in response to a question about 2020 accessory trends.

TOPSHOP:5 Stylish Workout Looks That Will Make You Actually Want To Hit The Gym

Already falling behind on your new year’s resolution to go to the gym AT LEAST once a week? Don’t despair, we’ve got just the thing to motivate you: some really sleek workout clothes that are so good they’ll have you exercising every day! Whether you’re after something chic and streamlined or a few more layers that will keep you warm at the uni lecture you have before your Body Pump session, these are the pieces you need…

  1. Simple for spinning…
    If you don’t want to attract too much attention at the gym, but still want to look as chic as possible, go for a classic monochrome pairing: either an easy all-in-one or some leggings with a baggy tee will work well.
  2. Pink for (Body) Pump…
    All black too plain? Give yourself a sartorial energy boost by opting for pieces in bright pinks and pastels. Carry all your gym essentials in a cute Topshop tote and keep your indoor gym trainers squeaky clean by slipping on a pair of these colour co-ordinated trainers for travel.
  3. Patterns for the park…
    If you’ve got an outdoor session planned – like circuits in the park or a running club – you’re going to be needing a few more layers. Start by pairing some jazzy leggings with a matching seamless sports bra, then stay warm by throwing a loose Tee and a soft motif sweatshirt over the top.
  4. Stuff for stretching…
    Your outfit doesn’t need to be as streamlined for low-intensity and strengthening activities like Yoga or Pilates, so if these are your thing, why not go for gym leggings with a cool kick flare shape. Finish the look with a loose vest, some funky scrunchies and tote.
  5. Tracksuit for training…
    You’re dying to get to the cross-trainer but you’ve got to put in a long shift at the library first AND run a few errands in town beforehand – this calls for a cosy fleece tracksuit that you can easily wear over your gym kit and will give off those sporty gym vibes all day long.

TOPSHOP:10 Of The Most Iconic Fashion Moments Of The Decade

The 2010s have been a busy time in the world of fashion: brands have come and gone, most of the media has migrated online, rising stars have blossomed into a new generation of supermodels and Instagram has transformed the way we do fashion entirely. However, whilst it’s definitely been go go go, there are certain standout moments that we’ll never forget. So, with the new decade just around the corner, we thought we’d take a look back over the last 10 years and celebrate them all. From beautiful ball gowns and shocking runway debuts to memes and political style statements – here are the highlights…
2010: Lady GaGa’s meat dress…
This seems like a lifetime ago now that she’s a fully fledged Hollywood star, but we’ll always associate Lady Gaga with that meat dress she wore to the VMAs in 2010! Fashioned from raw flank steak, it was intended as a statement against the US military’s don’t-ask-don’t-tell policy and even has its own Wikipedia page. Iconic.
2011: The royal wedding…
The marriage ceremony of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in 2011 marked the first Royal Wedding of the decade and it certainly didn’t disappoint. We can’t decide which was better: Kate’s unbelievably regal wedding gown or her sister Pippa’s super chic bridesmaid dress, both designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
2012: Angelina Jolie’s leg…
With a star studded guest list and an extravagant black tie dress code, we could marvel at the Oscars red-carpet roundups for days. But rather than the dresses and tuxedos, it was Angelina Jolie’s leg which took centre stage at the 2012 event. The paparazzi captured it sticking out of Jolie’s jet black Atelier Versace gown all night long and endless memes followed…
2013: Kim Kardashian-West’s Met Gala dress…
Over the years there have been many memorable Met Gala gowns that have been created to fit all sorts of themes from Heavenly Bodies to Camp. However, one that will forever stand out in our minds is the floral Riccardo Tisci gown that Kim Kardashian donned to the 2013 occasion. It was immediately compared to Mrs Doubtfire and in 2015 Kim made a joke at her own expense and dressed up in it again for Halloween.
2014: Kendall Jenner’s runway debut…
In 2014, Kendall Jenner – known primarily at the time for starring in her family’s dramatic reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians – made her catwalk debut in the Marc Jacobs AW14 show. Little did we all know that she would go on to become one of the highest paid supermodel in the world!
2015: Yeezy Season 1 at New York Fashion Week…
Although Kanye West had dabbled in the industry a few times before, it wasn’t until he dropped his Yeezy Season One collaboration with Adidas at New York Fashion Week in 2015 that his foray into fashion really kicked off! His Adidas Boost trainers skyrocketed in popularity whilst his slim-fit leisurewear aesthetic went on to noticeably influence streetwear trends worldwide.
2016: Dior’s ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ T-shirt…
Maria Grazia Chiuri took over as the first female Creative Director at Dior in July 2016 and hosted her debut fashion show that September. The pièce de résistance was undoubtedly her ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ T-shirt which tapped into the young Me Too movement and helped spark the logomania obssesion – in 2017 searches for ‘slogan tee’ increased by 105%!
2017: Edward Enninful appointed Editor-In-Chief of British Vogue…
The resignation of Alexandra Schulman and appointment of Edward Enninful as Editor-In-Chief of British Vogue marked a new era for the Condé Nast fashion bible. There had been uproar when, in honour of Schulman’s final issue, Vogue’s internal newsletter published a shockingly non-diverse staff photo. So, Enninful made it his mission to diversify the publication inside and out. British Vogue has since celebrated cover stars of all body types and from diverse ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds.
2018: Hedi Slimane’s Celine debut…
As creative director at Celine, Phoebe Philo had championed a new era of femininity in fashion with collections that could consistently be counted on for artful silhouettes, a refined colour scheme and a considered approach to design. Hedi Slimane, meanwhile, drew a thick indelible line under this when he took over in 2018 and presented his debut SS19 collection of rocker-glam, skinny-fit mini dresses in gothic colours. Within hours, the Instagram account @oldceline was launched to mourn the brands old aesthetic and the re-sell value of Philo-era products went through the roof!
2019: Timothée Chalamet…
Oh Timothée, what a year it’s been! Between the Louis Vuitton embellished harness he wore during awards season, the sequin hoodie he wore to London Film Festival, the overalls and lipgloss he sported in South Korea and the Eiffel tower keyring he recently used to accessorise a bright magenta two-piece – it’s almost impossible to pick our favourite look from the best-dressed boy of the moment. But, since we have to, we’ll go for this silver Haider Ackerman suit that practically broke the internet in February. Joined by Harry Styles and few others, Chalamet has spent all 2019 showing the world that there’s way more to menswear than the boring black tux.

H&M:Sweater weather: 8 great ways to wear knits now

THE KNIT SKIRT
Winter may be the most wonderful time of the year, but if you’re actually going to be jolly and not just cold and miserable — you need to dress appropriately. Our advice? Go top-to-toe in cozy, chic and unexpected knitwear pieces. Crown this look with a wide belt to accentuate your waist.
THE STAND-OUT SCARF
‘Tis the season to snuggle up in a checkered wrap! While it goes with everything (really, it does!), it’s the ideal accessory if you want a pared-back everyday look to earn some extra style points.
THE BOLD BEANIE
Get your head in the game with a fuzzy beanie in fall’s eternal It-color.
THE THIN KNIT
The delicate thin knit is essential for layering, but it’s actually just as cute by itself. Take a cue from Manami and make it fashion by partnering it with a faux leather skirt and high-shaft suede boots.
THE CABLE KNIT
Sometimes, winter dressing brings tough choices. Are you going to be warm but unhappy or freezing but cute? This timeless lavender cable knit expels those tough sartorial choices. Warm and cute – we choose you!
THE SPORTY ZIP-UP
Comfortable, casual and chic. The styling options are endless with this utility-inspired staple.
THE EMBELLISHED ENSEMBLE
Dressing for impact? Go monochrome with a luxe pearl-embellished knit paired with a silky skirt.
THE COMEBACK KIT
Bright neon, wide belts and high-waist pants — the ‘80s called, and we want their trends back.

ASOS:NEW DROP: NEW BALANCE

New Balance – the dad-trainer OGs – are back with two new updates on 90s classics: the 997H and 997S. Both feature a more streamlined silhouette, with the 997S sat atop the brand’s squishiest cushioning to date and the 997H representing with pops of bold colour – you know, to match all that neon you’ve been wearing all summer. Don’t take our word for it though – take a peep at how the ASOS Insiders are styling out the new classics.
Jana takes the term ‘cute co-ord’ to a whole new level by pairing her hot pink duo with some fresh 997H kicks. To break up the look, she’s layered it with a black long-sleeve tee and finished the ‘fit with a matching belt bag and scrunchie to pick out the detailing in her sneakers. Tens across the board!
No one does chic quite like Syana, and we’re loving the girly vibe she’s given her 997S sneaks. This black and white colourway means you can have a lot of fun with the rest of the outfit, so make like our fave Frenchie and team up a tie-dye slip skirt with a crisp white shirt and lace socks for a sweet summer look.
