I always feel lucky to live in NYC whenever I step into Topshop. It’s a UK fashion institution, one that I spent A LOT of time at when I lived in London. With celebs like Kate Bosworth, Alexa Chung, and Selma Blair rocking their duds, and amazing designer collabs with Kate Moss and up-and-comings like Meadham Kirchoff and Ann-Sofie Back, it’s where I go when I want to feel truly on trend (and in the best way possible).
Last week I had a styling session for The Raw Denim Project with a few of their personal shoppers at Topshop’s only retail store in the US, located in Soho. My stylist Lexi Clayburn ran around the store with me, asking questions about my personal style and how I’ve been wearing my Jean Shop raw denim jeans. After I so eloquently told her to “have her way with me,” we came up with three fun outfits.
If you’ve been following our daily style posts on Tumblr, you know that the above outfit is something I’d definitely wear. The sheer mint blouse ($95) contrasts perfectly with the stiffer white linen jacket ($84). Such a great transitional spring to summer/work to play outfit!
Next week I’ll be blogging from Coachella. Although I’ll probably be cheating on my raw jeans with some denim cutoffs, this outfit would be great for some night-time parties. This laser cut brown top ($70) has a suede feel and falls longer in the back. Paired with this cream fringed vest ($95), you’ve got an awesome mix of textures.
Most valuable advice I got for wearing my jeans? Wear shorter shirts! Although this may take me back to my awkward midriff bearing 90s years, this look is totally updated with higher-rise bottoms and looser shirts. The rust-colored crochet crop top ($75) is given a harder edge with a cropped black leather jacket ($110).
You can sign up for a personal shopping session with Topshop, too! Click here for more details. Special thanks to personal shoppers Melanie Abrahams, Laura Groudine, and Melanie Tojari, who also helped out with my looks.
