From new-season heroes to refreshed, everyday staples
I love Topshop, I really do. As much as I covet all those beautiful designer accessories and clothes bloggers love to post about, I always go back to Topshop for that quick fashion fix, whether it’s that bag everyone is wearing, or the new season purple boots that are just #winning.
As such, deciding what to buy in Topshop each week is one of my favourite pastimes, as well as a bit of a nightmare if I’m honest. For some reason, my bank balance won’t play ball. But I digress.
Topshop’s new-season collections are always highly anticipated – I mean, who doesn’t love the high street hero’s trend-led styles and wardrobe classics, all with a purse-friendly price tag? And its AW17 collection has to be one of its most exciting yet.
Featuring everything from faux-fur coats to checked and striped suits, there’s everything to help you cruise through the new season, with the added bonus of some amazing new heels (see aforementioned purple boots), cozy knits and printed dresses.
So, let’s cut to the chase (my credit card is itching to be used), because we all know these pieces won’t stay around for long. If you scroll down, you’ll find my curated edit of the best stuff to buy this week.
Topshop really does have something to suit every style, shape and budget. For workwear, I’m investing in some high neck ruffle blouses and a good statement suit (this week I’m loving checks). For something a touch less masculine, this floral shirt dress is a great buy, and for a more laid-back weekend style, I’m loving cropped utility jeans, perhaps paired with a striped t-shirt.
Of course, seeing as I love my shoes so much, the edit wouldn’t be complete with a good pair of heels or two, so I’ve put some in there for good measure.
Be sure to check back in here regularly as when new pieces drop, I’ll be sure to let you know which ones are worth a direct click into your wardrobe…
If there’s one workwear staple you need to invest in this season, it’s the suit, and the bolder the better. I’ve got my eye on a fuchsia one by Preen at Debenhams, but in the meantime, this checked number will do me just fine.
Weirdly, I don’t have a pair of mannish loafers, and now that I’ve seen the error of my ways, I’ll be picking these up to smarten up mum jeans and a white t-shirt.

Topshop styled this with a fluffy pastel pink coat, which reminded me a bit of Kate Hudson in Almost Famous, which is always a good thing.

Who doesn’t love a cute t-shirt?
It may not be autumn quite yet, but it’s worth investing in some chunky knits now, especially if they’re in the colour of the season: red.
Being on the short side of things at 5ft3”, I’ve yet to find a trouser style that is more flattering than cropped trousers.
This goes beautifully with the cropped denim trousers, and I’d throw in some leopard print court shoes or red ankle boots to finish off the look.
I actually have bought these, alongside a white ruffle shirt, and they’re even better IRL.
Don’t worry, pinafore dresses aren’t just for school girls. Wear this over an oversized striped shirt and accessorise with some slides for the adult version.

Last season, this shopper bag sold out pretty much instantly online, so get it before it’s gone.
