Shopbop sale

Sound the Shopbop sale klaxon!

It’s Shopbop sale time once again, which means it’s your chance to save up to 25% at one of The Fashion Police’s favourite stores – and it’s OUR turn to think, “Damn, why do these sales always come along when we’ve already spent all of our money for the month, and REALLY can’t justify buying one more thing? It’s a tragedy, to be sure. Still, our loss is your gain, so better make the most of it! The discount code is EOTS17, and it’ll get you 20% orders under $500, and 25% off orders over that amount. Don’t forget, you can also get 15% off your first order from the Shopbop app, so just download the app from the iTunes store, and…

The Internet Vs “The Real World”

MOTO Clear Plastic Straight Leg Jeans We had to check the calendar when we first came across these jeans – we were pretty sure it wasn’t April 1st, but at the same time, this does look a bit like an “Emperor’s New Clothes” type situation, doesn’t it? It’s no joke, though – and while you’re Fashion Police are still struggling to see the appeal of totally transparent jeans, the answer came in the form of the reviews of this item on the Topshop website – which basically just confirm to us that we’re far too old, and tragically un-stylish to get it. “These jeans might have got a thrashing on the internet,” wrote one thrilled purchaser, “but people in the…

Topshop’s £22 stripe bardot top

Topshop’s £22 stripe bardot top When you’re in need of a quick wardrobe pick-me-up, but you don’t want to spend too much cash, where do you turn? Well, Topshop, of course! Or, OK, ASOS. Or Dorothy Perkins. Or… OK, you got us: we’re really lucky to have a huge selection of affordable fashion at our disposal here in the UK, but it’s Topshop who are selling this split-sleeve Bardot top (honestly, we could live without the split sleeves, but we get that they have to add an “on trend” element in order to appeal to people who care about that kind of thing, so we’re willing to overlook it, and try not to think about how much those sleeves would…

A Quick Spring Wish List

If you read any of our other blogs, you might have noticed that The Fashion Police have been a little bit obsessed with Oasis lately. It’s not that we don’t love Oasis ALL the time, of course, but this is a brand that’s pretty much made for spring – just look at all of those florals they do! Here are some of our favourite pieces, just in case you’re in need of some retail therapy on this bank holiday Monday… Long textured skater dress One of the things we love most about Oasis is that they release many of their dresses in both a longer and shorter hem. We prefer longer lengths, ourselves, and are constantly finding dresses we love,…

Want to get up to 25% off in the Shopbop sale?

Want to get up to 25% off in the Shopbop sale? What are we saying? Of course you do! Well, there’s good news and bad news: the good news is that the sale is on now, and you can claim your discount using the code EVENT17 at checkout. The bad news, on the other hand, is that you’ll have to spend a minimum of $500 to get the full 25%, but luckily you’ll get 20% off on orders under that price, so you still have the opportunity to get some pretty decent savings. The sale runs for two more days, so what are you waiting for? Time to get that new spring wardrobe in stock…

Two-tone pants and double-waist jeans

We’re declaring a state of emergency: crimes of fashion are starting to take over the pants world. First, there was these: It’s like, they WERE regular jeans… but they’d always dreamt of being ballerina jeans. A couple of knee-tutus later, and their wish was granted! These pants, meanwhile, just couldn’t decide what THEY wanted to be when they grew up: Would they be pinstripe pants or cargo pants? Business or causal? Why couldn’t they be both, they wondered? Well, luckily for them, that wish was granted, too: which is a useful lesson for us all, really. Never try to pigeonhole yourselves, people – always remember the pants, and the inspiring tale of how they managed to have it all! Finally……

Jumpsuits Gone Wild

We’ve always viewed jumpsuits with suspicion. It’s definitely not true to say that all jumpsuits are crimes of fashion, obviously – some can actually be quite cute. It IS, however, fair to say that MOST jumpsuits have the POTENTIAL to be crimes of fashion: and we think this one is really pushing that potential to the limit: Of course, it would  also be fair to note at this point that we’re coming from a position of bias here, as we’ve always viewed ruffles with the utmost suspicion, too. (No, we’re not fans of the current trend for gingham ruffles, thanks all the same…) Like jumpsuits, they’re not always crimes of fashion, but they do have that potential, and, in this…

Topshop clear-panel mom jeans

When our officers spotted this photo doing the rounds on Twitter this morning, our first instinct was to check the calendar and make sure it wasn’t April 1st. But nope: it’s still only March 13th, so it’s way too early for April Fool’s… which means that these jeans must be real. Wow. Having discovered THAT, our next assumption – also wrong, as it turned out – was that they must be from one of those cheap clothing websites that spring up every now and then, selling clothes normally described as “clubwear”, but what we’d probably describe as “fashion crimes, one and all.” Nope, though: again, we were wrong, because these are from Topshop. Which is about as mainstream as it…

The Shopbop Big Sale is on now!

Shopbop’s Big Sale is happening this week, which means that, here at Fashion Police HQ, there’s been some endless browsing of the Shopbop website this week, too. Adding items to baskets, removing items from baskets, trying to work out if we can possibly justify squeezing in that one extra item… you get the picture. You’ll find all of the essential items from the sake in the graphic above, but here are some things that caught our eye from the ‘new in’ section: Maison Labiche Crazy in Love sweatshirt You just can’t go wrong with a classic grey sweatshirt, can you? No, it probably won’t be the most exciting purchase you’ll ever make for your closet, but we can practically guarantee…

Things to Buy From H&M

H&M have really stepped up their game over the last couple of years or so, and this season, the collection is looking better than ever. Here’s some of our top picks: Sleeveless silk dress OK, so at £99.99, we’re going to guess that this is probably a little more expensive than you’d usually expect from H&M. Luckily, though, the price is justified by the fact that it’s also a little more special than you’d usually expect: this dress is silk, and, from what we can see of it in the product shots, it looks to be beautifully made, with a classic shape, flowing cut, and, best of all, pockets. Gotta love a dress with pockets, right? this would be perfect for…

The New Way to Wear Ripped Jeans

  Rachel Comey Lenox Pants Well, this is… interesting. And here were we thinking that the denim disasters we’ve been documenting lately were probably as bad as it was going to get this season: just shows what WE know, huh? Rather than going straight for the most obvious crime here, let’s take a look at the circumstantial evidence first: The odd length, which looks more, “I outgrew these jeans two years ago, and just can’t afford to replace them,” than it does, “I’m totally rocking the cropped flare trend!” Then there’s the “Just like your mother used to iron them for you,” knife-edge crease down the front of each leg. The high waist – not a crime in itself, necessarily,…
