Topshop Unique Spring 2014
There's no mistaking it — Topshop Unique is a high-street label that attracts a high-fashion crew. The proof is both on the runway and in the crowd, where you'll find Cara Delevingne on the catwalk and Kate Moss, Ashley Madekwe, and Anna Wintour queued up front row to see just what the cool-girl dress code will look like next season.
For Spring 2014, that look is a quirky, '70s-feeling garden-party girl who doesn't shy away from a statement hue or a little sparkle — but doesn't do "party dresses" or pumps. It's a lineup of juxtapositions that make it so cool (and so wearable); on the one hand, you have a beautifully embroidered peplum top, but it's paired with boyfriend jeans and leather sandals. Sportier cuts, boxy pullovers and ponchos, and breezy chambray gets the perfect counter with ankle-wrap gladiator heels, the kind of contrasts that add up to a killer downtown girl's wardrobe. And, since this girl doesn't do glitz, her dresses are, like Jourdan Dunn showed us, an easy, sexier-cut maxi dress that could take you day to night or dusted in bright embellishments and finished with flat sandals à la Cara's final look.
