Topshop is a British retailer with brick and mortar stores and online operations across the globe. They have standalone stores in US cities Chicago, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, and the brand is available at Nordstrom. Some Nordstrom stores have built Topshop “store within a store” concepts that are just like walking into a mini Topshop. 

The brand is super trendy, daring and fashion forward, and although that might not be your cup of tea, it’s always worth a look. The styling is clever, colour-rich, texture-rich, and the quality is pretty good (several notches above H&M). It’s one way to incorporate a fun piece that changes up the landscape of your wardrobe, but won’t break the bank. Here are four pieces that I think are fun and very wearable: 

  • Oversized Wool Boyfriend Coat: I was blown away by the cut of this coat, which is somewhere between a man coat and a cocoon silhouette. It’s perfectly oversized and tailored at the same time. The small lapels are magical, and looks as good open as it does closed. It’s lightweight and not very warm, so perfect for mild Winters. You might need to size up for the right fit. It’s also available in coral.
  • Vinyl Coat: Add a little ’60s Mod Fabness to your wardrobe with this topper. It’s stiff and plastic-y so consider yourself warned. 
  • Animal Textured Sweater: Here’s one way to achieve the subtle round-shouldered look. I loved this sweater, but found it a dash scratchy. Hopefully, it won’t be scratchy on you. Fab with grey jeans. 
  • Plaid Front Sweater: Cheeky, bright and fun with boyfriend jeans or a skirt. It would also have been mine if it wasn’t a dash scratchy. 

Remember that it’s HOW you wear a piece that counts. Remix uber trendy items with a modern classic support act if they are “too young and out there” when worn how the model is sporting the look. Add a sophisticated edge for extra chic. And by all means sport high-low style, thereby remixing better-end pieces with the items from places like Topshop.
