We love the spring season. Probably more so than the summer as the spring looks are a lot more detailed, intricate and allow for a whole lot more imagination in how the outfits are put together. That includes lots of layering, from skirts and tops to jackets and stoles on top to the way we wear our shoes and sandals. The Topshop Unique spring/summer 2016 collection newly presented on the London Fashion Week certainly had a lot to say about the way the fashions collided with the latest trends, taking the side slit of 2015 to new heights, literally, for their 2016 looks. Of course, the whole idea of a matching outfit comes and goes but is mostly obsolete, with do it yourself designs in during the modern periods. This includes blazers, shirts, dresses, trench coats and retro secretary blouses coming in separates that we can easily mix and match for the most fantastic of combinations to wear to any given occasion. That is how Topshop works and that might be the reason some of the biggest It girls in the fashion industry – including Suki Waterhouse, Jourdan Dunn, Alexa Chung, Bella Thorne, Ciara and many others – found their way to the front row with kingpin Sir Philip Green sitting among the gaggle of gorgeous females.
The pieces presented on the runway were lovely to behold, apparently meant to show of the rebellious British girl who gets through the door first during any event. We can certainly see how that is accomplished given the height of those slits up the thighs combined with the notes of a British gentleman’s wardrobe wafting from the ensembles we beheld. Among the 34 combinations, we could not find a single outfit that would not be perfect for one’s lifestyle, no matter her personality. They are sexy and chic all at once, with feathery sandals, handbags and bows only adding to the allure.
The cutest shoes with bows to the side adorned the feet of the models gliding down that catwalk, while it soon became clear that polka dots rule in 2016 as well, albeit with a little more force than they had during the past year. Polka dots could be seen on dresses with high slits and plunging necklines, on ankle cropped skinny pants and pajama-top like shirts, skirts and rompers. We found ourselves faced with leafy detailing on skirts and gorgeous waist cinched blazers to add character to the fold, while black leather was seen peeking through on scrunched tops and sexy pants encasing mile long legs.
We love the high waist denim and the British tea party styling that is only offset with feathery sandals and oversized mismatched earrings. Add chiffon dresses and a softly feminine mood to the ensemble and you have something to treasure, creations that we have no doubt will be gracing the front pages of so many of the world’s best online fashion bloggers these days. Classic British looks really good and Topshop sure knows how to weave the designs to its own vision of female fashion.
