DESERT ISLAND CHIC

Picture a beach house hideaway on a tropical island, festooned with shells, palm leaves and coconut husks. That’s pretty much the inspiration behind Freedom for Topshop’s latest über-summery collection! A bleached-out palette of pastels dances across covered wooden beads and cute enamel flowers for a perfect hit of new season cool. Go natural with butterfly and bug themes and walk on the wild side with animal print pieces that we’re dying to get our paws on. Ruffle your feathers with a plumed headdress, fix up your hair with cute lace accessories and finish it all off with a huge stack of bangles to jingle and jangle.

We shot a few sneaky pics at the newest shoot to give you a heads-up on summer accessory chic, and got the low-down from the models – the very lovely sisters Tali and Lola Lennox. ‘I love all the layered beads,’ said Tali, ‘they’re going to be big for summer just layered up on a plain tee.’ Eclectic Lola says she’ll be rocking bright colours while the sun shines – ‘The neon yellow and pink fringed chain earrings were my favourite – they were cool!’

So this summer, whether it’s shoreline whimsy or jungle power, have accessory fun with Freedom for Topshop.
