Topshop SS15: Mix & Match

Calling all Topshop lovers, the new SS15 collection is packed with fashion trends worth knowing about!

Topshop did an incredible thing at London Fashion Week (LFW) last year. After its SS15 Unique Show, the high street brand single-handedly made LFW way more accessible and somewhat democratic, in a bid to engage their core customers and really involve them in the inner workings of the usually elite LFW goings-on.

Topshop’s big wigs made the bold decision to not only share their collection on social media as soon as it hit the runway but, in a fashion week first, they also gave die hard style-fans the chance to own a piece of the new collection straight after the show ends. As you can imagine, the brand’s Oxford Circus London store was rammed, while online shoppers from far and wide were rest assured that their SS15 orders from will be delivered in a matter of days.

It’s this vision of bringing fashion week to the masses that makes us love the SS15 collection from Topshop even more. The brand has had a number of campaigns throughout the season, involving the likes of Cara Delevingne and Hailey Baldwin, but this beautiful look book showcases some of the top trends you can find in the Middle East stores for summer.

This collection hints at 70s styling, with metallic platforms taking centre stage, while suede plays a key role in the form of cropped jackets and A-line micro skirts. Stripes and denim, naturally, make an appearance, as does the floaty florals on tops, shorts, skirts and trousers.

We also see the return of the all-in-one jumpsuit, pretty dresses, and high-waist shorts. Soft ruffles assume a tomboyish attitude when layered with slouchy tuxedoinspired separates, chic jumpsuits, sleeveless jackets, longline trenches and duster coats.

Whereas beautiful florals are modernised in unusual asymmetrical hemlines, soft layering and contrasting colours of minimalistic black and white to pops of pinks, nudes and camels. Take inspiration from the artfully styled campaign shots, and mix and match your prints, or work denim on denim, off-theshoulder tops, or flared bottoms with an undone messy hair do to recreate the Topshop girl look.
