TOPSHOP:What The Girls At Topshop HQ Are Buying This Payday

After what feels like three months in one, the day we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived: payday. And although you’ve probably been planning what to buy all month, it can be quite hard to narrow down what you really want when the time comes. So, as always, we asked the girls at Topshop HQ what they can’t wait to get their hands on this payday for a bit of inspiration. We’re sure at least one or two things on this list will take your fancy. Happy shopping!
Bethany Higgins – CRM Assistant Topman
“I’m in urgent need of a bag update! I love this cute little backpack because of its buckle detail and box shape – perfect for everyday essentials and city break travels.”
Cailin Klohk – Digital Editor Topshop
“Right now, all I want to wear are pastel knits. They’re perfect for that transitional period, when it’s still cold outside but you want to introduce a touch of spring to your wardrobe. I added this cropped buttermilk jumper straight to my wishlist when I saw it on our Instagram feed recently and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.”
Lauren Blackie – Online Visual Merchandiser
“I’m not exaggerating, I have bought this shirt in four colours. The oversized shape with tapered sleeves is universally flattering and will look great paired with jeans or leather trousers. And it will also look cute with a mini when the sun makes an appearance later in the year!”
Kathryn Hind – Online Trading Assistant
“Payday is basically my monthly excuse to buy another coat or jacket. This month, it’s this great blazer in a lovely lemon yellow. Who says you have to match your outfit to the weather anyway? As soon as I get paid this blazer is going straight in my basket…”
Nicole Croft – Senior Online Production Coordinator
“My jeans are in desperate need of a re-vamp and these mom jeans are perfect for seeing me through my daily Topshop office life styled with trainers, or with heels when I head straight to after-work drinks.”
Shannon Klohk – German Editorial Assistant
“These mules are just so classic, I would get them in every colour if I could. But this camel tone goes with everything and I can’t wait to wear them out as soon as spring is here!”
Becca Wade – Junior Editor Topshop
“I’ve been wearing dark colours all winter and I’m getting so bored of it, so I really want to inject some colour into my wardrobe this month. That’s why I’m dying to buy all these colourful pieces on payday. The almost-neon colours have this energy which I think feels really fresh for the new-season.”
Grace Duce – Copywriter
“This season I have fallen in love with this double-breasted trench coat, designed in the prettiest of pinks. This belted beauty is perfect with denim jeans as well as black dresses and is ready for spring styling. There’s something so classic about a trusty trench!”
Mihanta Ramamonjisoa – French Editorial Assistant
” I’ve had my eyes on these blue dad jeans for a few weeks now, so they’ll definitely be my first purchase this payday. I don’t have any mid-blue ripped jeans in my wardrobe at the moment and I think they would go with so many pieces that I already have. I’d pair them with a simple white tee or an elevated printed blouse.”
Yasmine Kennedy – Digital Editorial Assistant
“I’ve got plenty of black boots in my wardrobe already, so I think it’s about time I invested in a lighter shade. I’m pretty obsessed with these ones, as they’ll go with absolutely everything in my wardrobe and are a great way to transition into the brighter months. I’m picturing them with a white mini dress when summer arrives.”
Ella Josey – Online Production Assistant
“This jacket is fab-u-lous. I tried it on in store and it looks perfect paired with tights and heeled boots! I feel like it’s a great investment this time of year and with spring approaching I’ll discard the heavy duty borg coats and will want a lighter jacket. Maybe I’m just wishing away the winter, but this is a spring essential.”

ZARA:How to Tuck Your Shirt Like a Street Style Pro

Like any decent styling trick, the art of tucking in your shirt is easy to learn yet will elevate your look to chic new heights. But not all the ways to tuck in your shirt are made equally, and we would argue that there’s a time and a place for each style. Allow us to explain.
Heading to an important meeting or need to make a winning first impression? The full tuck is your fail-safe way to pull your look together and create a clean ensemble. Or maybe you want to cozy up in the perfect knit? Try the half tuck to add just the right amount of waist-defining shape. There’s also an in-between style: the front tuck, or French tuck, as Queer Eye’s Tan France calls it. However you choose to tuck your shirt in, read on to see how street style stars do it and become a bona fide expert in no time. Plus, shop the tops you need to re-create the looks.
The Half Tuck
Create a cool, deliberately undone look with the half tuck, a favorite among the street style set. A button-down blouse is an easy option for this type of tuck.
The Front Tuck
Business in the front, party in the back: This tuck is the perfect option for defining your waist without making it the focal point. Transform any knit or sweater from bulky to polished by tucking in just a few inches of material in the front. Oh, and this style is a favorite of Queer Eye’s Tan France, who calls it the French tuck.
The Full Tuck
Tucking in your shirt all the way around instantly pulls together your ensemble for a professional result. After tightly tucking in your shirt completely, raise your arms overhead to untuck just the right amount of fabric.

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.
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.

ASOS:ASOS MAG MEETS MABEL

For their new summer issue, ASOS Magazine sat down with R&B’s new It girl Mabel to talk about her mixed heritage, her musical family and why she’s optimistic about her generation. Read part of the conversation below and pick up the latest issue of the mag for the rest, as well as interviews with Khalid, Dove and much more.I’m Sierra Leonean, I’m Swedish, I’m English. But I found it hard to claim the black side even though it’s a massive part of who I am. My mother’s black, but I look how I look. Am I not allowed to sing a certain way? Am I not allowed to make music with a certain type of people? So last year I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m mixed race, I am who I am’. When people ask me if I’m mixed race I say, ‘It’s the same as my music, it’s all mixed, hun!’I’m so proud. We were both undergoing self-discovery journeys making our albums. I hadn’t moved out and it’s difficult having two people under one roof being extremely self-indulgent. We have a very good relationship, though I worry about her. I think lots of daughters feel that way.There’s so much I love about Sweden and being Swedish, but I also felt like a fucking alien there. Everything’s very clean and white. Our family – my granddad from Sierra Leone [musician Ahmadu Jah] – would barbecue chicken outside on Christmas Day, in minus 20! But I’m proud we were different. Me and my friend were the only brown girls in school, [so] we were ‘exotic’.I’ve got half a million followers and 80% are girls. I don’t want anybody to think I’m perfect or happy all the time. I have demons: about my body, having a spot and doing the red carpet… It sounds cheesy, but when I was younger if one of my idols had been like, ‘I’m anxious’ it would have made me feel less like an alien. I wanna make people feel they’re not alone, because I felt alone.I’m fuming. I drive past it every day and say a prayer because that shit hurts. That’s my home, this is where I’m from and I won’t forget. Families of five living in horrible hotels, up on the 12th floor. That is so fucking traumatising. It’s heartbreaking and it’s gonna hurt [the people of Grenfell] for the rest of their lives. But my community’s amazing and seeing the love and support that everybody had for each other… We’ll never forget.I think my generation is sick! I feel optimistic about what we can bring to the world even though it is fucked up. I look at the news and I’m like, how with Brexit, how with Donald Trump? My parents taught me to think positively and there’s a lesson to be learnt from every tragedy. So I feel positive because my generation is using our platforms for things like mental health and Grenfell. We are the future.

ASOS: HOW TO WEAR SAFARI SHADES NOW

Safari uniforms traditionally come in neutral tones so adventurers can fade into the background of whatever terrain they’re exploring. However, this season, a neutral fit will, in fact, help you stand out – especially when it comes in the form of ASOS DESIGN’s covetable new collection. The new season by the exclusive-to-ASOS label is fit to burst with desert beiges, earthy browns, jungle khakis and loads more. Below, we bring you three ways to wear them now.Now, here’s a look that Indiana Jones would be proud of. And whether you’re braving the wilderness or your first library day pre-exams – which is probs scarier – this getup is an on-point choice. Top tip: keep neutrals interesting with voluminous silhouettes (see these paper-bag trousers) and unexpected details, like this polo shirt’s woody buttons. Summer is a ways off but the ‘what to wear to work when it’s roasting?’ question is answered already via this dark chocolate blazer and shorts set. Plus, with a bum bag leaving you hands-free (and your look even more steezy), you can navigate the urban jungle – and deal with the wild animals you encounter on your commute – more easily.At first glance, this dress may seem like a simple design, but it has some super-cute details that make it that extra bit special. Like the twist-open back, bell sleeves and plunge neckline (which is begging for a statement necklace). Dunno about you but this beauty and its snakey sandal friends have got us dreaming of balmy vacation nights. BRB, off to book that Ibiza trip…

ASOS:3 WAYS TO GO RETRO THIS SEASON

Just when you thought it couldn’t get colder, it did. And if you’re all out of layering ideas after what seems like the longest winter ever, fear not: we’ve got a fresh batch of inspo in the form of some seriously nostalgic fits. This season’s retro trends come courtesy of all your favourite decades, from the 70s to the 90s. Just add some on-point accessories, layers and a dash of glam – and you’ve got the answer to all your cold-weather prayers. Want to find out more? Here are three ways to try it now.
The new neutrals
Not sure where to start? How about with a double-breasted pinstripe blazer in a 70s-inspired brown like this one? Layer it over a vintage-vibe polo shirt for a top half that could have come right outta That ’70s Show. Now, to avoid looking like you’ve actually time travelled from your Dad’s fave era, style it with a more modern pair of rigid cropped jeans. Bonus points for matching your shoes to the accent colour of your top.
Still clueless
Remember Clueless and Cher’s forever-on-point checked co-ords? Well, say hello to the 2019 remake. Mismatch a cropped boucle jacket and a checked midi skirt for a print clash that somehow works wonderfully. Then, throw a little bit of 70s into the mix with a sporty half-zip sweater underneath (cos why not?). Don’t forget the accessories: this beaded bag will carry all you need for the day and is the perfect contrast to boxfresh white trainers. Not so clueless anymore!
Three in one
And now for a look that combines three decades in one. Animal print might be one of the biggest trends of the year, but, TBH, it’s also a major throwback moment that was big in the 70s. Plus, if you don’t get serious Fran Fine from The Nanny or Janice from Friends vibes off this, you’ll want to refresh your memory of sitcom glam. Then, a mini dress with a roll-neck layered underneath brings a swingin’ 60s twist. Beautiful.
