Night Styler: Top(Shop) of the Line
Last week, American fashionistas rejoiced as the ever-popular British chain, Top Shop, crossed the pond and opened it’s first U.S. outlet in the SoHo neighborhood of NYC. Known for it’s trendy but affordable styles and featuring lines by designers like Jonathan Saunders and Kate Moss, Top Shop has been a go-to for Europeans and visitors alike. And now we Americans can grab up these fantastic styles without having to book a Trans-Atlantic flight. (Don’t worry if you don’t live in NY – you can order this shiz in the American dollar online!)
Can I get a cha-ching?!
In honor of this exciting news, I decided to base this week’s Night Styler on Top Shop style. It’s a little more expensive than many of my NS looks are, but if you love clothes as much as I do, you’ll agree that they’re worth it.
Go with this spring’s leopard print trend (it’s especially popular in different colors, so either of these shirts do the trick!) with a wild top. I love the twisted straps and looseness of the first shirt, and I am totally feelin’ the mix of neon colors of the second one.
One can never go wrong with a pair of indigo tinted skinny jeans, especially this pair. These have some elastine in them, so they’re stretchy and more forgiving on those “fat days” and hug your body perfectly every other day of the week.
Grey heels are a sexy way to bring in a neutral hue other than black, and the cutouts on these give them a funky, rocker edge. Plus, that heel with those skinnies? H-O-T.
When going with strong, bold prints, simplicity is key when it comes to accessorizing. You can give it some oomph with some size (like big earrings and a cuff bracelet), but keep ‘em in basic silver or gold so they accent your ensemble rather than overpowering it. I found these pieces at Forever 21, still the best place to go for inexpensive, and a-dorable accessories.
There are plenty of other pieces to check out on Top Shop’s new site or at their store, so get your stylin’ self there pronto to see what goodies you can score. For now, though, you can look like the queen of the sexy jungle. Rawr.
