SEE YOUR SELFIE ON TOPSHOP!

Posted on December 23, 2014

Got a Topshop look worth sharing? Then we want to see it! Our new #TopshopStyle gallery lets you share your styling on our site – just share on Twitter or Instagram using #TopshopStyle.

We’ll pick our favourites to join the hall of style fame! So what are we looking for? Check out the guidelines below to ensure your pic gets picked…

DO

Instagram @alwaysjudging

1. Wear Topshop! We want to see how you’re putting your own spin on our designs, whether it’s one favourite piece or a top-to-toe look.

2. Art direct! A great selfie needs great composition – consider the background (a blank wall can be just as effective as a beach in the Bahamas) and remember to show as much as your outfit as possible – you can’t go wrong with a full length snap in the mirror.

3.  Smile!

DON’T

@alwaysjudging

1. Share any non-people pics. Products on their own, screenshots or snaps of your lunch won’t make the grade – we want to see YOU!

2. Over edit – we prefer shots in natural daylight without extra text or photoshopping! All you need is a great filter.

3. Be rude… for obvious reasons, any offensive pics won’t be shown in the gallery.

THREE UK GETAWAYS FOR 2015

Posted on December 22, 2014

Craving a new year holiday? There’s no need to splurge on a plane fare with these top notch UK retreats! From slick countryside barns to plush hotel stays, your first 2015 trip could be right on your doorstep…

CLIFF BARNS, NORFOLK

These renovated barns make the perfect hideaway. Kitted out with stone fire places, Western-themed decor and a mega hot tub, you and a group of friends can kick back with the piles of books or board games provided, or summon the in-house chef to come and cook you a three-course feast. Like the sound of it? Enter our competition to win a stay for you and 10 others with i-escape.com, plus a Topshop shopping spree!

NO. 131, CHELTENHAM

Forget quaint cottages, this Cotswolds hotel feels more like a cool New York pad. Enjoy slick rooms with enormous showers and double-sided plasma TVs, a restaurant with neon modern art lining the walls and a buzzing basement cocktail bar open ’til early doors. Our favourite part? No. 131 is all about the little touches – think pre-heated hot water bottles at bedtime, the complimentary painkillers at breakfast and all our favourite style mags piled up in the lounge area.

PRIORY BAY YURTS, ISLE OF WIGHT

Thinking ahead for a summer break? Why not try glamping? The recently opened yurts at Priory Bay on the Isle of Wight are not what you’d normally expect from a campsite. Each yurt offers luxury bedrooms (complete with Victorian-style bath tubs), access to a private beach and its very own butler service. Beats a three-man tent at Glastonbury!

TOP 5 FASHION TERMS OF 2014

Posted on December 18, 2014

Google has spoken! The results of the site’s Search Survey are here for 2014, revealing the most googled topics of the year. While Jennifer Lawrence was the most searched-for celeb and  Lorde’s red carpet dress got the web buzzing, we were most excited to see which trends you’re looking up.  Here’s the top 5 fashion terms of 2014…

1. ‘NORMCORE’

Rooted in the ’90s, normcore re-surfaced in a big way for 2014.  All about dressing ‘normal’, it’s got everyone harking back to the early Friends days in easy jersey pieces, pale denim and trainers with everything!

2. ‘HEALTH GOTH’

No, this trend isn’t about Mortica Adams drinking green juice, but a cool mix of goth gear and sportswear. Think all-black everything and rips galore, given a modern spin with athletic fabrics and futuristic cuts.

Get the look with an oversized hoodie layered under a biker coat with black lipstick

3. ‘ATHLEISURE’

Athleisure has taken sportswear out of the gym. Fashion eds swapped heels for trainers at LFW, trackies were given a luxe makeover on the catwalk and Beyonce announced a sports-fashion line with us for next year.

Get the look with printed joggers, a varsity jacket and Superga trainers

4. ‘WEARABLES’

Fashion meets tech! Wearables are changing the way we think about fashion, with clothing or accessories that provide a practical function too. Will we all be rocking Google Glass by next Christmas?

5. ‘CROP TOPS’

You all went crazy for crops this year! Whether they’re basic, off-the-shoulder or girly – they’re a Topshop fave any time of the year.

TOP 5 ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS TRACKS

Posted on December 15, 2014

We all love a bit of WHAM and Mariah at this time of year, but how about changing up your Christmas track list? We enlisted the help of DJ and London cool girl Blonde Ambition to share her top five lesser-known Christmas tunes.

1. ’8 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS’ – DESTINY’S CHILD 

“I’ve loved this song ever since it came out back in 2001. My sister & I memorised the words and I’ve pretty much played it whilst dancing around our living room every Christmas morning since…much to my parents dismay!”

2. ‘WHITE WINTER HYMNAL’ – FLEET FOXES

“It’s such a jolly, happy, feel good song and I always enjoy playing this as a festive alternative at Christmas time, or while excitedly driving home to see my family…”

3. ‘ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS NEW YEAR’S DAY’ – HURTS 

“I like this cool festive alternative offering by Hurts, although I must say; I’m definitely not planning on rushing my Christmas to get to New Years Day, I’ll be savouring every last bit of it.”

4. ‘SOMEDAY AT CHRISTMAS’ – STEVIE WONDER

“It’s a nice thought to think of peace on Earth if only this were true. It’s a thought-provoking Christmas song and sang by a voice that I could listen to for ever and ever: the one and only Stevie Wonder.”

5. ‘GOODBYE ENGLAND COVERED IN SNOW’ – LAURA MARLING  

“This song is just so lovely and sang so perfectly…it always gets me excited about retreating to the English countryside to cosy up and spend my Christmas walking in the hills.”

POPPY DELEVINGNE’S BFA LOOK

Posted on December 8, 2014

Last Monday, the fashion elite descended on the London Coliseum for the annual British Fashion Awards (and we spent the evening glued to our Instagram, checking out the inevitably cool outfits from the comfort of the sofa). Alongside Model of the Year nominee Sam Rollinson and singer Jessie Ware, Brit babe and British Fashion Council member Poppy Delevingne flew the flag for UK style wearing a custom made embellished Topshop Unique dress from our SS15 collection – created and hand beaded by our in-house design team. Poppy teamed her look with smokey eyes, a kitty clutch (cute!) and simple black heels. Check out the pics below to see the process behind her amazing outfit.

After looking incredible on the red carpet, Poppy took to the stage to present baby sis Cara with the Model of the Year award – cue teary eyes all round as she said ‘I am proud to call you British Model of the Year, but to me, you are way more than that. You are the brightest star in my galaxy, and my beautiful little sister, and I love you.’ Adorable? We thought so.
