Party season is nearly upon us so now is the time to invest in those party pieces to turn heads this Christmas! From office parties to new year there is so much coming up to dress up for and Topshop never fails to disappoint with their amazing selection!

I don't often wear bodycon but I fell in love with this gold chainmail style little number which has an amazing cut out back, I layered it with a little black roll neck underneath and a statement black boot for a day to night look. Partywear has definitely taken a 70s edge this season! I love a statement jacket and always think it finishes of a AW look perfectly so opted for the striped faux fur number which has a great colourway and is super soft! I picked out the grey and matched the little suede satchel again for a smart/casual feel.

I loved styling this look and think it will be great for Christmas drinks with friends or dinner. It also can be dressed up more by taking away the roll neck and adding a killer heel! How are you getting ready for party season this year?

We highly advise you to head to your favourite Topshop to get your party fix!

With just a month to go, we are on the brink of party season and the question on everyone's mind is 'what am I gunna wear?!'. Year after year the 'stress of the dress' is worse than the hangover the following morning but if there is one high street band that have always got your back(-less), it's Toppers.

When it comes to my ultimate party dress, it's got to glitter! and this slinky little number has got all my favourites, a high neck, a bold print and the biggest confidence boost a mama needs! Despite the curve hugging material, it's flattering and comfortable - not often you can say that!

Capes make the perfect party-wear as it means you don't have to completely cover up but can remain cosy! and I tied the look together with black accessories to let the dress get the attention it deserves - the faux fur collar, snaffle buckles and tortoiseshell heels give the whole look a TSOP-signature vintage feel which compliments the modern metallics of the dress to create my ideal 'night-out outfit'

Out and About: Press Days SS16

Naomi - Beyond Retro Vintage Coat

Just as the days are getting even greyer, we are reminded that Spring will come around again soon by all the incredible press days around this time of year that are showcasing brighter and more colourful S/S wardrobes, and SS16 might be the brightest one yet!

We certainly enjoyed the ride into next season at Boden's incredible airline-themed press day which had everything from a carousel catwalk to a first class lounge! Suede, patterned shirts and stripes featured heavily across the product and bright bold primary's mixed in perfectly with the pastels.

We got to see all our favourite high street brands under one roof at the Arcadia press day this season and cannot wait for all this product to come out! Favourites by far were Miss Selfridge's endless collection of lace/crochet/floral folky dresses fit for any Bohemian Queen, they were simply gorgeous and keep your eyes peeled for Topshops ' Artists Impression' trend, a modern 60's offering with print and pattern galore


Sweet Tooth - Naomi

Primark Houndstooth Scarf, Black Pinafore Dress, Military Waistcoat, White Blouse
c/o Boohoo White Clutch Bag
H&M Black Boots

Houndstooth is a big print for the season and was featured as a 'must have' by Vogue for AW15. It can be injected into your wardrobe in a big way or small. Opt for a statement over sized houndstooth coat or subtly with a bag or scarf, see Miu Miu AW15 for style inspiration.

For this look we have gone for a clean monochrome ensemble which is a fresh look for AW15 and a nice change from my usual 70s bright prints. Houndstooth always looks great clashing with other prints and with pops of colour and great for all occasions.

How are you investing into the trend?


Sweet Tooth - Amy

Topshop Boutique Leather Jacket, Topshop Stripe Jumper, Topshop Dogtooth Skirt, Rodnik Snoopy Bag c/o Urban Outfitters, Clarks Chinaberry Boots

If there is one print that has got me hooked this season it's houndstooth, I cannot get enough of the stuff! With it's retro feel and ability to work with the rest of my wardrobe, I am constantly finding myself in a jumper/dress/trouser/anything I can get my mitts on to get that monochromatic insterest into my ootd!

When it comes to pure black and white, I always love to play with prints and texture and that's exactl how this outfit has come about. Stripes are always an essential, even more so than the houndstooth! so it's fab when you can get them to work together. Finished off with lots of leather makes this cool AND cosy with minimal monochrome effort


Trend Inspo: Outerwear AW15

Oh it's that time of year again! Despite how many coats are in our collections already, we can never resist investing in a new one (or five) each Autumn and with so much to chose from, how can we not?! This year it is all about the textures with spring summer's suede jackets getting an update, thick aviators attracting attention and fur collars on just about everything!

We have each picked our favourite five from the high street - which is yours?


Can you tell it's all about the cosy-ness for me this autumn winter? With thick faux furs leading the way! I love the subtle polka dot print on the H&M number and the Topshop Animal Print is remarking similar to that Shrimps coat with a much nicer price tag! Panelling is also a great way to update your outerwear - why wear one texture when you can have atleast two like this M&S coat and Topshop Harrington Jacket!


I love a statement coat as they brighten up those grey winter days! Faux fur in bright colours and prints catch my eye from H&M and ASOS. Aswell as patent shiny macs, tassel capes and jacquard weaves. I love mixing textures together for AW especially with big chunky knits and suede. After all it's the best time of year for lot's of lovely layering!


Pull Cord - Naomi

 Vintage Dress & Waistcoat from The Hippie Shake 
Beyond Retro Boots & Belt
c/o Free People Hat

Cord is all over the high street at the moment and easy wardrobe update for AW15 that gives a nod to the 70s. From popper front mini skirts and cute little corduroy dresses invest into the trend as you will. I picked up this super cute cord vintage waistcoat recently which gives a slightly unique adaptation on the trend and thought it worked perfectly over a winter printed 70s maxi.

I went full on 70s with this look with my brown platform boots and wide brim hat I love all the brown autumnal colours together with the hint of turquoise.

Have you invested in the cord trend this season? We would love to see how!
