      Catch of the Day | Topshop blurry check pencil skirt

      The Fashion Police don’t JUST catch criminals. Sometimes our officers also manage to net some awesome fashion items while we’re out patrolling the streets of style, and in this new feature we’ll be highlighting just a few of them for you. Here’s today’s catch: Topshop blurry check pencil skirt, £40…

      Meadham Kirchhoff for Topshop | The Verdict

      The Meadham Kirchhoff for Topshop collection launched online this morning, and we’re now considering declaring a State of Style Emergency. Seriously: this isn’t a brand we’d have expected to come up with anything even remotely “ordinary”, but given that this is a high street collection, aimed at the people who…

      Wanted! Winter coats at Miss Selfridge

      Miss Selfridge full-skirted coats, £85 If you’re anything like us, the recent plunge in temperature here in the UK has got us just a little bit obsessed with outerwear. More so than we usually are, even. The problem with winter coats is that, because they tend to be to pretty…

      Supermarket Sweep | The Best of Supermarket Fashion

      Supermarket fashion lines tend to get a little bit overlooked when it comes to fashion roundups and ‘Most Wanted’ lists, and we consider ourselves as guilty as anyone else in this respect. It’s easy to forget there are coats and dresses tucked away behind the bread and milk in your…

      Miss Selfridge bow detail coat

      Bow detail coat, £79 Have you broken out the winter coat yet? We generally try to hold out until October before getting into the “proper” winter gear (Not because we consider that to be a fashion “rule”, we hasten to add: purely because we love summer, hate winter, and want…

      River Island gold embroidered skater skirts

      River Island skirts River Island have been doing a great line in skater skirts this season. We featured some of their scuba skirts in our neoprene roundup last week, but it’s this gold textured number that really has our fingers hovering over the “buy now” button. The basic shape of…

      High Street Hero: Summer dresses from Oasis

      It’s been a while since we last nominated a High Street Hero, and today’s nominee isn’t ONE item, but many: basically, it’s the entire collection of summer dresses from Oasis… Summer dresses are one of the more fun fashion items out there: quirky prints, bright colours and interesting shapes abound,…

      three pairs of printed trousers

      Three Things: Printed trousers

      Forever 21 // Topshop // Zara Printed trousers appeared on the style scene a couple of seasons ago, and while some of you loved them, and were more than happy to pledge allegiance to our new printed pant overlords, others were reluctant to accept that they’d be expected to walk around…

      High Street Hero: Dorothy Perkins floral petal sleeve dress

      Dorothy Perkins floral petal sleeve dress, £18 We seem to be having an inadvertent “Dorothy Perkins” theme today, because right after publishing our “Three Things” post this morning, featuring three items from the UK high street brand, we remembered that Fashion Police Officer Francesca had written to nominate this Dorothy…

      Louche 'Ivy' bow cardigans

      High Street Shopping: Louche ‘Ivy’ bow cardigans

      Louche ‘Ivy’ bow cardigans, £29 The Fashion Police are big fans of the humble cardigan. They keep you warm when it’s cold out (well, d’uh!), dress down too-fancy outfits, and make strappy dresses and tops suddenly appropriate for all kinds of settings they’d otherwise have been deemed semi-scandalous in. Honestly,…

      Primark Pow Sweater

      High Street Shopping: Primark ‘Pow!’ sweater

      Move over Marcus Lupfer… Primark jumped right on the comic book trend with their ‘Pow!” sweater, which will set you back all of £14 (unlike the designer version, which was over £300). We hate to use the phrase “on trend”, so instead we’ll simply note that this will certainly help…

      Friday Fashion Five

      The Fashion Police Five Under Fifty

      The Fashion Police Five is a roundup of five random fashion items we’d buy right this very second, if the Fashion Godmother were to suddenly appear in front of us and say, “Fashion Police, you may pick five items, but they must all be fairly cheap, say £50 or less.”…

      5 Christmas dresses under £50

      Five Under Fifty: Christmas Dresses

      Well, we can ignore it no longer: the emails declaring that “Christmas is just around the corner!” are growing in number on a daily basis, so we guess we may as well bow to the inevitable and start looking for a Christmas party dress. We should probably make a start…
