Topshop SS 10

I have to admit that my first Topshop shopping experience was a bit of a let down (sailor coat excluded). I remember when I first discovered their online store long before they started shipping to the US and wasting way too much time sitting at my office desk flipping through item after item that I wanted to get my hands on but couldn’t. Perhaps they’ve changed their style a bit since then? Perhaps I have? Either way, when I walked into the store there was not much that appealed to me. It was all a little too tough for my liking.

So looking at their S/S 10 lookbook, I’m trying to get past the styling and see if I like any of the actual clothes. If I break it down, I think there are a few pieces I could see working their way into my wardrobe. Is that a pretty lacey dress peeking out from underneath that scary furry sweater? There’s a sailor style blouse that seems to have some potential. And there are a few little floral dresses that seem they would be perfect for spring.

I think topshop is better in England, never been to the nyc store, but everyone maintains the original is the best

Hmm... I very much like the floral dresses and all the stockings.... is that blue lipstick? I'm super behind on the current trends!! Good picks, my dear!

I really love their spring collection, but unfortunately I really hate the lookbook styling... have to force myself to ignore it as well!

I feel exactly the same way about this lookbook- some of the clothes look really great but I'm not into the styling. Can't wait to see them in normal mode on the site someday!

the NY topshop is terrible - I've been to the London one and the Prague one and both are orders of magnitude more enjoyable / interesting then NY. The London one even has a section downstairs for local designers!

The styling is marvelous!

I agree with your comments re Topshop, also comments re: styling in these images. There's nothing purty about, is it blue lippy? However, there is as you note, potential in a few individual pieces.

they have changed their sense of aesthetic, yes. ah... i remember when Topshop was very unheard of, a very small shop, here in England, with a lot of vintage inspired clothing and specially selected items... times they are a-changin'.
