It’s always dangerous territory when the New In at Topshop email lands in my inbox. Especially at this time of year as I’ve officially entered the “Christmas Freeze”, trading in spending on myself for saving for presents for others.
So instead I thought I would get my overpowering need to shop out of my system by sharing with you guys my favourite pieces New In from Topshop this week in the hope that you’ll do enough spending for the both of us.
I’ve been a Topshop girl for as long as I can remember. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always have a soft spot for Zara and Mango but the edgier style brought to us by Topshop will always have a stronger hold over my heart.
We all love the convenience of online shopping and the constant access that it offers us to all of our favourite brands but it can be overwhelming when you’re suddenly faced with the choice of pages and pages of clothes. Whenever I’m feeling pressed for time when online shopping or just a bit lazy (what’s new there?) I look to what other bloggers have recommended in their shopping posts so in an attempt to make your online shopping life a little easier, I’ve decided to do the same with my favourite picks from Topshop this week.
Can I count this as my good deed for the day?
As Christmas is fast approaching I’m all about the glitzy party-wear. Normally not a very “glitzy” kind of girl, I’m drawn towards more subtle glitz, opting for metallics rather than sequins 9 times out of 10. I love the ballet silhouettes of these shoes, adding just enough touch of femininity to an outfit without going all out girly-girl. Easily take a look from day to night with the versatile style, paired casually with straight-leg jeans and a plain tee (my current go to look) or dress them up with your Christmas Party dress.
Personally I think trainers becoming fashionable is one of the best things to ever happen to the fashion world. Two years ago I would never have dreamed that I would spend the amount of money that I do on trainers. These days I’m all about comfort, especially going into the colder months when all you want to do is curl up in your most comfortable clothes and hide away from the miserable weather outside. I spotted these a while ago on OFFICE’s social media and knew I had to have them, even reposting the on my own instagram. Honestly, part of me wishes I hadn’t discovered that these were available from Topshop. Someone please buy them before I do.
If you’ve read my post 3 Ways to Wear Leopard Print, you’ll know that this is a trend that I can’t get enough of. Perfect for adding a little bit of personality to your outfit and adding a bit of height to your outfit – some of us being more in need of extra height than others. The leather toe cap detail tones down the print just enough to stop it from being tacky while the high cut and slim sock-style fit keep you looking chic and on trend.
A little more on the pricey side for a coat Topshop, but I’ll give it to you – it’s basically 2 quality, very practical pieces of clothing in one. There’s no doubt you’ll stay warm in this one and with hoodies taking street style and runways by storm, you’ll be bang on trend. If I could afford you hybrid coat, I’d give you a lovely home in my wardrobe.
A coat for £59.00? Do I even have to justify this one? Last Autumn/Winter was all about the Camel Dusters and this season is no different. It’s classic and it’s timeless and its a style you can never go wrong with. Pair with your jeans, trainers and a hoodie to keep things casual. If you’re like me and your wardrobe is made up of 95% black clothing, this camel coat will be your new best friend. This one is selling fast so I recommend you get your hands on it before it’s too late.
I’ve got a whole lot of love for the dark romance trend gracing the high street at the moment. Think black lace, dark floral patterns and rich burgundy and you’ve got the trend down to a tee. This little black dress is a perfect representation of the trend. I’m not usually a dress girl but something about Christmas makes me feel the need to don a dress as often as possible but you won’t find me straying far from my beloved black palette.
I’ll admit, this is one of those items of clothing that I found myself drawn to with absolutely no idea why. It’s also one of those items that I know I could recreate a similar version of from what is already in my wardrobe and yet I still want it. Tell me I’m not alone in my irrational love for this pinafore dress?!
