TOPSHOP:5 Ways To Style Oversized Shirts For Every Occasion

The shirt has always been a classic wardrobe staple, but this season it’s getting a big update with new colours, fresh fabrications and oversized silhouettes. Scared you’ll look like you’ve been draped in a bedsheet or don’t manage to pull off the ‘borrowed my boyfriend’s shirt’ aesthetic? The styling is pretty crucial to getting the look right. To help you nail it with ease, we’ve put together outfits for five different occasions to get you started…

  1. The 9-5
    Updating your workwear wardrobe can be as simple as opting for an oversized fit when it comes to the staple button up. We’ve gone for a classic blue-stripe and black trouser combo here but jazzed it up with some bright blue boots for a bit of 2020 flare. Throw on your trench and a tote and you’re guaranteed to be the best-dressed commuter on the tube.
  2. The 5-9
    Don’t be tempted to ditch your white shirt completely when the clock strikes 5pm. Instead, swap your workwear bottoms with a mini snakeskin skirt and grab your dancing shoes for a super easy transition from desk to dancefloor. Add a mini nylon bag and some gunmetal earrings and you’re all set!
  3. Brunching
    A shirt doesn’t always need to mean cotton: in fact, this season’s favourite fabrications are on the sheerer side. If you’re heading to brunch, pair your favourite jeans of the moment with some classic mules and have some fun with a pearl bag and funky earrings to complete the look.
  4. Out-out
    When heading on a big night out, an oversized shirt might not be your go-to look. However, draping an organza shirt over a cool bodysuit and wearing it with a mini skirt could make it feel more exciting. Finish the styling with some animal print stilettos and a little black bag to achieve the ultimate out-out outfit.
  5. Gigs and things
    Don’t want to wear a jacket but it’s still a bit chilly outside? Choose a faux leather oversized shirt when heading to a gig to keep warm in the queue but don’t overheat in the venue. Utility trousers and chunky boots are the model off-duty staples right now, so we would style the outfit with them and then add a fun bag for a true cool-girl vibe.

TOPSHOP:5 Outfits Inspired By Your Favourite Rom Coms To Wear This Valentine’s Day

Stuck on what to wear this Valentine’s Day? Your favourite romantic comedy might just be the answer to all your problems. To get inspired for the season of love, we took a look back at some of the films that make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside and discovered quite a few outfits we’d love to wear ourselves. From The Notebook to Crazy Rich Asians, these are the looks we want to recreate this Valentine’s Day 2020…

  1. Valentine’s Day
    Can you believe this star-studded film is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year? Good thing cardigan tops, slip skirts and mules are our favourite things right now. Plus, tote bags are officially back in style as well and they’re perfect for carrying love notes or Valentine’s chocolates…
  2. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
    Andie Anderson’s (Kate Hudson) yellow gown is simple, yet so effortlessly elegant that is proves that sometimes less really is more. If you don’t have a ball to attend, opt for this midi-length slip dress that’s easy to dress up or down. A pair of strappy heels and some earrings are all you need…
  3. The Notebook
    Sail off in this light blue Prairie dress and make all your dreams come true. Pair it with black boots for a laid-back day-to-day look or quilted mules for a special occasion. A pearl necklace might feel a bit dated, so how about going for this super chic pearl mini bag instead?
  4. Notting Hill
    Could this look be any more on trend? Add ‘90s accessories to a seemingly simple outfit and you’ll strut the streets like Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) in no time. A pair of black micro glasses, a beret and a shoulder bag will be your best friends.
  5. Crazy Rich Asians
    Think pink like the ever-stylish Astrid Leong-Teo (Gemma Chan) in Crazy Rich Asians and opt for a structured midi dress in a soft rose tone. Complete the look with some accessories that have luxe appeal like a pair of cat-eye sunglasses, a boxy mini bag or metallic mules.

ZARA:Your Official List of “Trendy” Basics to Buy in 2020

Trends are great and all, but have you ever discovered that something that is currently “trending” is sitting in your very own closet? If you haven’t, you’re about to. As we’ve touched on quite a lot this past year, there has been a drastic shift in the industry toward a more wearable wardrobe. This includes tons of pieces that, up until now, we considered basics or wardrobe staples. But when those staples start to, well, trend, then we’ve hit the sweet spot.

Today, we’re here to report on the eight “trendy” basics that everyone will be wearing in 2020. The best thing about the items on this list is that buying into each is buying into a better wardrobe overall versus a one-off trend you could maybe wear once or twice. Purchasing long tailored shorts, a fresh button-down shirt, or heeled loafers, for example, is really putting all your money back into a wardrobe that will serve you for seasons on end. And in case you already own all of the below, well then consider yourself lucky (and extremely stylish).
Longer shorts have worked their way into both the suiting and basics worlds in 2020. Embrace longer hemlines and get ready for all of your T-shirts and tanks to look 10 times cooler this spring.
The ’90s have felt “back” for a while now, but the S/S 20 collections unearthed things like shoulder bags and (drumroll, please) tube tops. These strapless comfy wonders are the perfect counterpart to any of the bottoms you’ll see in any trend guide moving forward.
Classic button-down shirts are the multi-hit wonder that surely you already have sitting in your closet. What once might have felt like the most boring item sitting in your closet now embodies all things chic and polished this season.
Grandma style is another major movement that is here to stay, and the spring runways proved that heeled loafers are the freshest way to channel all things granny this season.
Long denim skirts have finally made their triumphant return to the fashion scene, and we’re loving the subtle styling that we’ve seen so far on Instagram. From Canadian tuxedos to simple tanks, this is one skirt trend we are more than here for.
Shoulder bags are a prominent handbag style that is both practical and completely on trend. We are currently loving the ’90s-inspired shapes, but we’ve seen many more iterations featuring everything from chain straps to croissant shapes.
Slip dresses are a style you’re probably very familiar with, but thanks to the runways pretty much shoving in our faces that lingerie-inspired dressing is here to stay, we are really leaning into the idea of more boudoir-esque slip dresses in 2020.
Shocked to see baseball hats make this list? If you don’t already own one, the good news is that your significant other or your dad might, or you can snag one on the cheap from Amazon as seen below. We promise this trend will quietly creep its way into your wardrobe, and before you know it, you’ll be wanting to wear one every day.

ZARA:This Elegant Trend Sort of Died, But It’s Coming Back to Life Next Year

There are certain trends that basically come “in and out” every few seasons. I consider these to be sort of like yo-yo trends—they’ll rise up in a noteworthy way one year only to basically die down the next before they rise back up, and so on. Peplum tops (when fabric gathers at the waist and flares out) are one of said trends.
TBH, you probably have a few peplum shirts in the back of your closet from when the trend dominated a few years ago and everyone (legit, everyone) seemed to wear them thanks to their inherently chic and elegant nature. Well, it may be time to include pretty peplum-detailed pieces in your arsenal of standbys come 2020. That’s right, some of the biggest runway heavy-hitters from Tibi to Alexander McQueen showcased modern interpretations of the trend with ruffle-like accents and cropped shapes throughout their S/S 20 collections.
Below, I rounded up a bit of visual inspiration for the return of the peplum top for you, as showcased on the runway and through street style. I also shopped out a range of the coolest, most fashion-forward peplum tops to buy right now if you’re ready to re-introduce the look into your closet. Welcome back, peplum.
Khaite’s interpretation of the peplum showcases how the trend has evolved in 2020 with the ruffled bottom, ruched bodice, and cap-sleeve detail.
This slightly cropped peplum top in the sweet orange hue at Tibi is especially modern with the monochromatic cargo trousers.
Alexander McQueen’s bold leather peplum jacket-top hybrid is striking with the puff sleeve and strong shoulders.
Never shy of bold colors, MSGM amped up the peplum with an eye-catching color-blocked option with laser-cut details.
This sophisticated peplum outfit at Michael Kors feels classic yet incredibly of-the-moment with the addition of the studded belt.
Style Tip: A white peplum top with sharp sleeves pairs flawlessly with straight-leg jeans for that casual 9-to-5 life or in that 5-to-9 life as well.
Style Tip: A matching set is no-fail (toss both pieces on, and you’re set) and quite forward with unexpected accessories like canvas sneakers and mesh bag.
Style Tip: A peplum top in a neutral hue that has a touch of shine is so modern with light-wash jeans for any holiday party this season.
Style Tip: Make an instant statement in a black peplum top with eye-catching details like the sheer paneling and high neck here. Try it with an equally bold pencil skirt and knee-high boots to take the vibe to the next level.
Style Tip: Add a belt to a white blouse to give it even more dimension teamed with statement pants and black booties.
Style Tip: A peplum blouse with architectural elements (like the balloon sleeves) is impactful on its own, and requires nothing more than a pair of black pants and fun flats.
Style Tip: Similar to the Alexander McQueen look above, the jacket-top peplum hybrids are ramping up to be a must-have for a polished vibe paired with trousers for elegant affairs.

TOPSHOP:5 Iconic Outfits From Winter Movies We Want To Recreate This Season

If you ask us, movies are the ultimate source of fashion inspiration. Movie wardrobes are designed and carefully curated specifically to highlight each character’s different personalities and storylines, so you can always find one that speaks to your taste. To make things even better, all of these characters then wear their perfect outfits against scenic backdrops and film sets, making them look even better! So, for inspiration this season, we decided to look back at some of our favourite flicks from across the ages and recreate the iconic outfits of their most stylish stars…

  1. When Harry Met Sally (1989)
    There’s no shortage of stylish looks in the rom-com of all rom-coms, When Harry Met Sally. Set in the ’80s, the film is overflowing with power-shoulder blazers, high-waisted trousers, puffy taffeta sleeves and mom jeans. However, the knitted jumpers that Harry and Sally wear in the apartment scene have got to be two of the most iconic looks in the whole film (and movie history). They’re so simple to recreate, too! Simply pick your knit and keep the rest simple with either denim jeans or an A-line skirt, classic boots and patterned tights.
  2. Manhattan (1979)
    Oversized shirts, cool tailored trousers, long flowing hair and natural makeup – Meryl Streep as Jill in Woody Allen’s Manhattan is serving up all the style inspiration we need this season. Due to the film’s noir style, we can’t tell exactly what colours she’s wearing here, but timeless neutrals are probably the closest bet, so pair two beige pieces together and wear with brown add-ons.
  3. An Education (2009)
    Made in the ’00s but set in the ’60s, An Education transports us into the world of a sophisticated set of British socialites whose style at the time was more influenced by the fashion houses of Paris than of London. The film’s leading lady, played by Carey Mulligan, wears a number of covetable looks – think simple satin slips, classic trench coats and Audrey Hepburn style hair. However, today, all our eyes are on this outfit worn by Rosamond Pike’s character, Helen. Who could say no to a killer leopard print coat paired with sleek black and red accessories?
  4. Notting Hill (1999)
    It might have been 20 years since the absolute classic that is Notting Hill graced our screens for the first time, but could Julia Roberts’ style as Anna Roberts be any more 2019? It’s probably because most of her looks are made up of simple basics that will never go out of fashion, like the pinstripe trousers and white T-shirt in this coffee spilling scene. But remember, it’s the ultra-stylish leather jacket and beret that elevate this look to iconic status so they should be a part of all of your day-to-day outfits this winter.
  5. The Great Gatsby (2013)
    2019 is drawing to a close, which means this NYE rings in the start of this century’s Roaring Twenties! What could be a better time than this to recreate a look from Baz Luhrmann’s glittering and glamorous interpretation of The Great Gatsby? A sparkling slip dress is always a great choice for festive parties but give your look the Gatsby touch by accessorising with luscious faux fur and dripping gold jewellery.

TOPSHOP:What To Wear To The Coolest Art Exhibitions Coming Up This Autumn

The days are getting colder, greyer and rainier, but it’s not all doom and gloom: getting a cultural fix at one of London’s many impressive art galleries is the perfect indoor weekend activity right now. With each new season comes whole host of new art exhibitions, so there’s lots of newness to discover this month: from a retrospective on 19th century Pre-Raphaelite masterpieces to beaming laser light shows, here’s our roundup of the five best art exhibitions to see and some tips on how to coordinate your outfit to get the best Instagram snap when you’re there…

  1. Bridget Riley, The Hayward Gallery
    Spanning 70 years, this exhibition at the Hayward Gallery at the Southbank Centre is the largest and most comprehensive retrospective exhibition of Bridget Riley’s colourful canvases to date, so it’s definitely worth a visit. Alongside the bright eye-catching works, there’ll also be the artists iconic black and white paintings from the ’60s, early figurative works and recent wall paintings. For your outfit, sport something that’s as fun and vibrant as the powerful patterned pieces on display.
    Bridget Riley is at the Hayward Gallery from 23rd October 2019 to 26th January 2020
  2. Nam June Paik, Tate Modern
    Credited for pioneering the use of TV and video in art, South Korean artist Nam June Paik is one of the most innovative and playful artists of the moment. This exhibition celebrates a fusion of sight and sound in it’s celebration of over 200 works from his five decade career. There are robots, video works and room-sized installations but one of the most exciting is the TV Garden, which features multiple screens amongst the foliage. Make your outfit an ode to this popular piece and channel the jungle theme with a khaki boiler-suit and boots.
    Nam June Paik is at the Tate Modern from 17th October to 9th February 2020.
  3. Pre-Raphaelite Sisters, National Portrait Gallery
    The work of female artists has often been overlooked in the world of fine art. However, since Guerilla Girls made waves with their campaign on art historian Linda Nochlin’s 1971 essay “Why have there been no great women artists?” a few years back, lots of museums have been working to address this imbalance. So, 170 years after the first works of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood were exhibited, this exhibition explores the contribution of twelve women to this iconic artistic movement. The art aesthetic is romantic and features a lot of floaty silhouettes so work around this when styling your look.
    Pre-Raphaelite Sisters is at the National Portrait Gallery from 17th October 2019 to 26th January 2020.
  4. Other Spaces, 180 The Strand
    Each year an immense and immersive exhibition of art, light and sound commissioned by The Store X The Vinyl Factory pops up at 180 The Strand, mesmerising audiences as they move from room to room. This year it’s called Other Spaces and explores Renaissance drawings in the most modern way possible: lights flash and lasers jet around the room into jet black vanishing points. Since light is such a prominent factor in this exhibition, choose an outfit that will give you a bold silhouette: puff organza sleeves, an A-line skirt and chunky boots.

Other Spaces is at 180 The Strand from 2nd October to 8th December 2019.

  1. Tim Walker: Wonderful Things, Victoria & Albert Museum
    From the pictures, films, photographic sets and special installations on display at the V&A right now, you can tell how Tim Walker has established himself as one of the most inventive photographers in the world. The Telegraph has described the exhibition as ‘A bewitching ode to art, artefact and fashion‘ which allows you to step into the fantastical worlds of each image. The pictures are fun, luxe and a little on the bizarre side, so when it comes to your outfit think ‘wonderful things’ and incorporate elaborate feathers, coloured fur, sparkling sequins, high-shine vinyl and more…

ZARA:The Worst Shoes to Wear to the Office

Figuring out how to master your wardrobe in a professional setting can sometimes be difficult to navigate. It’s often a tricky balance to personal style with professional style in a work setting—and shoes are no exception. The issue gets even more complicated when fashion enters the equation. What are the best styles to wear, and which ones should you skip in the office?
To find out from a veteran of both the fashion industry and a professional office setting, I asked Michelle Scanga from Who What Wear to weigh in with her take on which shoes are best to wear at the office—and the style she wouldn’t recommend. “Wearing shoes that you can’t confidently walk in is a big no in my book,” she says, “along with sky-high stiletto heels.”
While towering stilettos are a no in her book, she has some recommendations for what to wear instead. “I think it’s better to err on the more conservative side and opt for a moderate heel height,” she says, “or you really can’t go wrong with a block heel.”
If you’re in the market for some new office-appropriate shoes that are also fashion girl–approved, go on to see my edit of the best new styles to add to your closet right now.
Moderate Heel Height
As Scanga recommends, a moderate heel height is always a great bet for the office. You can choose a style ranging from closed-toe slingbacks to open-toe sandals to ankle boots depending on your personal style and office culture.
These shoes are everywhere on the street style scene and a great option for the office as well.
Pumps this fall are finished with cool modern upgrades like these cutout side panels.
Another modern take on pumps.
You can’t go wrong with a classic.
For a little edge without going over the top.
Try out an unexpected color like lime green, which we’re seeing everywhere this season.
Sculptural heels are so trendy right now.
A croc finish is a great way to transition your boots to fall.
This style also comes in burgundy.
Strappy sandals are perfect for the office when paired with elevated trousers.
Block Heels
Another great office shoe style that Scanga recommends is block heels. The comfortable shoes are easy to walk in so are a great option to wear all day long.
Pair these with high-waisted trousers.
Some statement shoes you can wear to work.
These classic slingbacks get a cool upgrade with a snakeskin print.
Pair these with anything from a pencil skirt to a midi dress.
Slip into shoes from Jacquemus’s fall collection.
Here’s a summer style that can cross over to fall.
Look for boots with a block heel to pair with trousers and dresses.
Slouchy boots are everywhere for fall and are perfect for pairing with a long dress at the office.
