the shirt-under-your-dress trend

This classic 90s trend has crept back into street style. It’s a way of wearing your party dresses during the day. It’s also perfect if you have spaghetti straps or uncomfortably low cut dresses… how will you wear yours?

I’ve got inspiration for a whole new way of wearing my wardrobe. Hooray for practical trends!

the half tuck

Hello 2015, good to meet you!

To kick off the year, we want to talk about the half tuck. Isn’t it great? For a while now, we’ve been adopting this little trend – with t-shirts and jeans, button-up shirts and skirts, even our running tops and shorts. There’s something so simple about the half tuck, and it just lifts a look, taking it from perhaps a little too laid-back to a bit more put together. What do you think?

trousers … going wide

Back when skinnies were about to be a thing I swore I couldn’t, I wouldn’t. But of course I did. And now… now I cannot imagine life without a skinny. The tighter it is around my ankle, the better. The more stretch in the fabric, the better. So what will I do come summer when the wide leg trouser trend hits our shores and makes its comeback? I think I may still have a few wide leg options in my wardrobe (at the very back). In the name of fashion I’m sure I’ll give it a spin. In the meantime, some inspiration…

topshop trends in store now

No longer do we have to longingly wish we could get our hands on the latest trends hitting Topshop stores. Because we have Topshop now. How nice.

Margot’s World
One thing we’re super stoked about is the return of the pencil skirt. Paired with a tailored jacket, the look is both chic and modern. Key separates can be mixed and matched, think mini shift dresses or quirky skirts with shorter length knits or crop tops (will we dare?!). It’s also socks with sandals season (yay) and make sure you invest in at least one bold motif whether it’s on a tee or a jersey or the back of a jacket.

90s Antwerp
Innovative and experimental, this trend is all about reinventing the classics with a modern edge. Think a tailored crisp white shirt with pretty lace applique and cut-out detail. Men’s-style trousers or cocoon coats with clever darting and domed sleeves, all in neutral shades of black, stone and grey.

The Craft
Think slightly spooky, gothic-inspired silhouettes – maxi/midi floaty dresses, long leg jumpsuits and pinafores embellished with photographic inky florals, micro studs and graphic laser cuts.
