mood for the Christmas and
New Year festivities.

Topshop are high street leaders and they are
helping revive the beautiful prints of the 1960s. Topshop have launched a small number of limited
edition pieces with lovely prints by Celia Birtwell the famous
60s print designer. The fabric prints are in the style of Birtwells signature hand-drawn prints
that she created for Ossie
Clark. Two of the designs are shown just below.
Left - White floral Celia Birtwell blouse £48/70.
Right - Black floral Celia Birtwell maxi dress £60/88, black
leather wedge sandal £90/133.
Both from Topshop Autumn/Winter 2007.
The argument for wide leg trousers or skinny trousers never
stops. Nothing makes a woman look more out of date than
wearing the wrong trouser style. But when Topshop stock both skinnies and wider leg
styles, you know you are safe to wear either. Thank
goodness I hear you sigh. Some girls and women can wear skinnies,
but just as many look better in wider leg pants. Take your pick.
I especially like these Topshop wide leg jeans below. If they are
as well cut as the famous skinny Baxter jeans, then they will
soon fly out of Topshop's stores. Team them with one of
the latest belts
on offer in high streets.
Left - Charcoal chiffon frill blouse £35/52,
Indigo wide leg 'Mel' jean £40/60.
Right - Cream cropped Shearling jacket, £65/96, sherbet pink
frill blouse £28/40, Indigo wide leg Mel jean £40/60, Gold
snake effect metal belt £30/45. Both looks are from Topshop
That military look simply will not go away. I love this striped
jacket which reminds me of the style of military wear jacket one
might see in a production of the opera Tosca. Very dramatic, very
Napoleonic and very fashionable for any Topshop girl.
Left - Maroon self stripe 'Boating' blazer £55/82, purple
glitter clutch bag £20/30, white skull print T £24/35, black
wet look jean £40/60.
Right - Black velvet puff sleeve jacket £65/96, Claret skinny
jean £40/60, black skinny leather belt £22/32. Both looks are from Topshop

Isn't it wonderful to live in an era when you can just as
comfortably wear a short mini dress as a maxi dress a shown
above. Fashion always comes full circle and manufactures
and retailers are wise enough to realise that with so many
shapes and sizes we need plenty of options when we go shopping.
Topshop is first inline to offer its young customer base the
latest fashion trend options. But it also realises that older women
sneak into their stores mid week, browsing the rails for a little
number to mix in with their regular wardrobe. This is not
surprising, since Topshop has been around for over 4 decades.
Many customers have shopped in Topshop all their adult life.
This season they have many lovely pieces to delight you.
