I definitely feel old when I walk into a Topshop nowadays. Back when I was a teenager, Topshop was the place to go to buy all the fashionable clothes of the day. I suppose the same is true for teenagers of today but gosh, every time I go in there it just makes me feel old. It seems like with most of the clothes you have to have a very flat stomach as there are lots of crop tops on sale and you have to be fairly thin as well. According to an article I read, "Topshop is a British multinational retailer which specialises in fashion clothing, shoes, make-up and accessories. It has around 440 shops across 37 countries and online operations in a number of its markets. It is part of the Arcadia Group, which is controlled by Sir Philip Green and owns a number of other retail outlets includingBurton, Dorothy Perkins and Miss Selfridge. Topshop was founded in 1964 as Peter Robinson's Top Shop, a youth fashion brand within the Sheffield branch of Peter Robinson, a now-defunct British department store chain. The first stand-alone Topshop store was opened in 1974. In 1970, Topman was created as a spin-off brand to cater for male customers and is now run as a separate chain, although some stores are co-located. That's not to say that I don't like Topshop and I can still find some nice well made clothes in here, I just have to look past all the teenage stuff. I find Topshop very "on trend" which I guess can be a good thing and a bad thing. If you are looking for very fashionable, up to the minute clothing straight off the catwalk then this is the store for you but then who wants to follow the trends all the time anyway. I definitely think Topshop has become a lot more expensive than when I was a kid as well. It was always a bit higher priced than say C&A or Hennes but you could always come out with an outfit with your pocket money but I don't know how kids afford most of the fashions today. Tops can be priced in the £30-£40 region with jumpers and cardi's the same but shoes and dresses a lot more expensive. Plus, if you shop in some of the bigger stores they often carry the more designer pieces such as Kate Moss for Topshop or other brands and these can be a lot more expensive. When I was pregnant, Topshop for maternity clothes was great. Again, this could really only be found in the bigger stores but then I have one near me so its not a problem. They had a really nice selection of fashionable maternity wear and not just mumsy tents like some of the stores offer you. They had a really nice range of jeans and some nice fitted going out tops too. They also were great for vests, bump bands and maternity bras. A visit to the massive Topshop on Oxford Street in London is always worth a visit, that is of course if you're willing to fight the hoards of teenagers who frequent there on a Saturday. It's huge, over many floors but it has a great shoe department, a nail bar, great accessories and lots of brands that you don't find in the regular stores. All in all, a great on trend store that I'm just perhaps a bit too old for now.
I have a love-hate kind of relationship with Topshop. I love all of their clothes, but I hate how expensive they are! I also hate how small and cramped the store local to me is, and I hate how inaccurate the sizing can be. I don't shop at Topshop as much as I used to, because now I'm paying rent & have a baby I don't have as much disposable income as I did when I was younger. I am 19 and when I was about 15-17 I would go to Topshop every weekend with my friends and buy something from there, usually a party dress or just some jewellery. The clothes in there are very modern and aimed at teenagers and adults. They sell other things too like makeup, small novelty gifts and even cards, and I really like how random some of their things are, for example I got a random little teddy hot water bottle from there quite recently. They only sell women's clothing, but the store that is local to me is joined onto topman which is the male equivellant. Topshop sizing is 6-16, and they don't do children's sizes or anything. Their sizing can vary, but most of the clothes I have from their are on the small side. The jewellery that they sell is all really nice and some of it is very unusual, they sell nose chains and cuffs and all sorts, but like their clothes the jewellery is pretty expensive (I got a necklace from there once that was about £15, it was an impulse buy & it was really bad quality!) Topshop sell every item of clothing you can think of, this includes basic tops, plain leggings and stuff. The basic tops and vests are more expensive than the new look & primark basic tops, but they aren't any different in quality so i always avoid these items. I also avoid the leggings because they're really expensive, a plain black pair is about £15 I believe, maybe even more expensive! The printed leggings are £20-£30 and a pair of jeans or shorts will set you back by £30-£50 on average. Their range of knitwear is lovely, but so expensive, the cardigans are usually on average about £50 and made from cheap polyester or acrylic, and the jumpers are about the same price. The shoes are extortionate, their heels are about £30-£200 and the ballet pumps are usually about £20 if not even pricier. The coats are lovely too, but again are expensive. I was thinking about getting a winter coat from there because I saw one I liked. It was £75 and I managed to get an identical one from bonmarche for £35! That's the thing, Topshop clothes aren't the most unique or special, which is why I don't get how they can justify the prices. They do have different designer pieces in sometimes like tee and cake, ragged priest and so on but these are really expensive. Like I said I don't shop at Topshop much anymore. I only have about 5 items of clothing in my wardrobe from there, including a hoodie, cardigan and tee shirt. The tee shirt was about £30 and it is great quality and really bold & quirky, the hoody was £22 and is still in good quality after being worn to death over the period of about a year and the cardigan is really well designed and comfortable, but it was £50 (it was a gift, I wouldn't have bought it myself!) I also have a dressing gown from there but I don't wear it very much because it has a flannel kind of material which I don't like, I think it was about £30. All of their pyjamas and underwear from what I've seen are really expensive, even the socks are about £6 a pair. I know I'm moaning a lot about the price, but I should mention that they do offer student discount, which I certainly made the most of whilst I was at college!! As for the staff they all seem quite pleasant in my local store. It is three girls & 1 boy in my local store and they always smile and make general conversation while I pay, they never follow you around the store and try to force you into buying things or anything! To sum things up I wouldn't recommend Topshop because of the stupid prices, if the quality was amazing & the clothes were really unique I'd understand, but most of them aren't. I will continue to go in there to look at the sales rack (they have amazing sales!) but doubt I'd ever buy anything at its full price from there.
I've always enjoyed walking into Topshop for many years now even though for a long time the clothes didn't fit me as they didn't have bigger sizes. Now however, I am able to fit into more "normal" sizes I would say they do seem to stock a few more of the larger sizes, however, not everywhere. Topshop has generally been a bit more on the expensive side I feel, however, again over recent years I do feel they stock more items at more high street prices and at prices people can afford and are more willing to pay, however, at the other end of the scale they do seem to have some things that consist of hardly anything at ridiculously high prices but then again I assume you get that in a lot of places. You will get people paying the prices to be seen to be wearing something from Topshop. Anyway a few years ago I would say I would buy quite a few things from Topshop, however, lately when I go in, nothing stands out to me as being wow. They have a petite section which is great and often they have albeit a small section for this they do have one, although not sure if I would always class it as petite, but that is my opinion. All in all a good store, sometimes have to pay a high price, to me not an all rounder store (in that I don't think they would have everything you would be looking for) but it's been around for years and I would expect it to still be around in many years to come
I've been a fan of Topshop for many years and have found myself wandering into the Darlington Topshop even when I've found that there's nothing I fancy buying in there. Since the refurbishment a few months ago the shop that is located on the upper half of the Cornmill shopping centre stands out with it's large black sign and large glass windows showing mannequins dressed in outfits from the shop. Entering the store there are outfits lining the walls- with a centre stand of clothes and a stand out feature rail holding clothes on it which can be moved around the shop. The shoe lounge is located at the very back of the shop with the accessories on the opposite wall. A variety of styles and sizes are on display. The members of staff in the Darlington branch of the store are wonderful and always make polite small talk and when you ask for help do their best to solve a solution for you whether it be holding an item for you or locating an item at another store. The changing rooms are the biggest change within the Darlington branch. Changing the sides of the changing rooms and installing a disabled changing room the walls are painted white with wall stickers on for extra effect as well as a larger mirror to get a better view of the outfits that you are trying on. I still find myself wandering into this branch just because it looks so nice even if sometimes the clothes aren't that nice at times!
Ah, Topshop. You either love it or hate it, but one thing is certain: Topshop is here to stay. For years, it has clothed high street fashionistas, from teenage schoolgirls to trendy post graduates. Once a store considered unfashionable by many, Topshop worked hard and managed to turn its image around and is now considered trendy, securing its 'Unique' range a place at London Fashion Week. It is the only high street brand to be in London Fashion week and its flagship store on Oxford Street is always packed, attracting up to 30,000 customers per day, according to data on the internet. So is Topshop the store for you? If you're looking for a carefree boho look, then yes. If you're looking for a different, vintage look, then yes. If you're looking for a retro feel to your wardrobe, definitely. However, I find that when in store, a lot of the items on the racks are quite daring really. Some have bright, garish patterns that only the brave could pull off. However, you then have the other extreme. You can find pastel cardigans and dresses in store too. It seems it caters towards everyone, and whilst the price tags aren't always cheap and cheerful, it's definitely worth a look if you want to revamp your wardrobe or even just find some new bits and pieces or that killer staple item. In recent years, Topshop has experienced more exposure by working with supermodel Kate Moss. She first started designing for topshop in 2007 and anyone who likes Kate Moss' enviable fashion sense, should definitely check out her range. Topshop also stocks other interesting ranges which can be found on the website under 'Boutique'. Personally, I would recommend this store to anyone. The clothes are beautifully put together, eye catching and have a wonderful fit.
To be honest as much as I love fashion and clothes Topshop can be a bit of a hit or miss with me. I think sometimes their fashion is trying to hard to be funky and different and a lot of their stuff is just plain ugly. Having said that, I love their shoes and when I do find clothing that I like, I love it!!! Their jewelry and accessory collection is awesome too. There always a lot of funky bits and pieces that you can use to create your own individual style. The quality of their shoes, clothes and bags is exceptional and the service that you receive in store is always polite and friendly which just makers the shopping experience that bit more enjoyable. I love shopping and when I purchase something I'm particularly proud of I like to talk about it with the cashier while I am paying for it. Helps me leave with a smile on my face. I seem to go through Topshop phases. When I like it I'm never out but I go through stages that I just can't find anything that I like. Having said that, I will never ever give it a miss when I'm on a mission to find an outfit. All in all I give 4 out of 5 for Topshop only because I find their choices of clothing not always to my taste. Apart from that it's a great shop that I always enjoy visiting.
Topshop is a very popular high street clothing shop. We have a reasonable sized store in Ipswich which has womans and a mens clothing on two levels. I find that Topshop can either be hit or miss with its clothing and sizing. Topshop is the only shop that I have to try on clothes as their sizes tend to vary quite a lot in jeans, tops and in dresses. I do find the clothes of good quality and they wash very well but I do find that they can be over priced sometimes. I think that they display their clothes in a very clever way so that the clothes displayed are usually just underneath which makes it easier to find them. The selection in shoes, handbags, belts, underwear and nightmare is amazing. There is so much to choose from you are guaranteed to find exactly what you wanted and even more.
I believe Topshop is one of the best high street stores for women! Their items are always of fantastic quality and last for a very long time (which is what every woman wants). The prices do tend to vary, from reasonably priced to absolutely ridiculous, but with most of their range you really do get what you paid for. Also most of the people they tend to employ are always ready to help and have a fantastic range of fashion knowledge for buyers who need that extra hand. Topshop is a very well known store and is certain to not let you down. The only downside to this shop is if you do not like the fashion trend at that moment in time, it's more than likely you wont find anything in the shop you will like as it is mainly designer-look based. But as a lover of fashion this shop is yet to let me down and i could happily spend every last penny in here. The best thing is it's not aimed at a particular age, anyone can buy an item from topshop and look amazing!
Topshop is one of the most popular, International clothing store on this planet! I used to worked at Topshop for 2 years then moved to Arcadia head office for a year. Not only is the clothing the most modern, best quality and what every girl is looking for, the organisation of the company as a whole is outstanding! It's the best place I've ever worked! They really care about there employees and Loyal customers, for example, always making sure card holders get regular discount, free delivery of Internet shopping... the list goes on! when I started working there I was 17 and was not the best fashion icon you would see walking around town! In fact I wasn't that bothered what I wore, oh how that was to change, 6 months later I was telling a customer (who was pencil shapped!) "If your was going to wear a long vest make sure you wear a high waisted belt as it will give you definition". I learnt a lot from working at that store, It was at Meadowhall in Sheffield and was extremely busy most of the time too, I had highs and lows at that store and found life long friends. Now lets talk about fashion... I'm a real girly girl and always have been although my fashion sense has evolved and now I've realised things don't have to co-ordinate all the time! which is great and at Topshop you can mix so much up! Their basic range such as vests, t-shirts, Jumpers, polos can be literally matched with anything and are good value starting from Just £6! why not match them up with a pair of there very hard wearing jeans, 4 years on and I've still got most of my uniform jeans, they've faded slightly but still feel tight! I have to rave about there boutique ranges too, They have lots of cute little dresses that are perfect for going out in! a little pricey but they are worth it! all topshops sizes range from 6-16 Most Topshops have a free Style advisor service too, which means you could book 1 for a friend or relative who needs a bit of a make over, and they really pamper you, you get a free gift, drinks and snacks! so why not give it a try? The message is Topshop rules!
I am a huge fashion fan. I love clothes, shoes and underwear. I love shopping, and to me I find it very therapeutic, and really relaxes me, and is really fun, especially with my friends on a sunny day, with a ice drink, oh what heaven! And as bad it sounds, I love having new clothes, it makes me feel confident and sexy, especially if I'm trying something new. My personally style is quite mix and match, I love leggings, unique dresses and really sexy Tops, as I always feel much, much more sexier, with small dresses and big high heels, gives me such confidence. And Topshop is one of the stores I used to shop in very regularly in, when I was working and had money, and loved it! So thought I would share my experiences of Topshop and a little bit of Topman too. -Topshop Company- Topshop is a clothing company which was founded in 1964 in England, and now has shops in many countries around the world, such as the UK and Ireland, USA, Australia, Poland and Malaysia. Topshop is a shop for women selling shoes, clothes and accessorises, but in 1970 Topman was founded as part of the Topshop group, as is mainly for men, selling men clothes, shoes and accessories. Topshop and Topman claim to be "at the forefront of fashion" and Topshop claims to provide clothes for "every style, every style, every day." And both Topshop and Topman's items are on catwalks and in many, many fashion magazines, and also many celebrities have claimed to love Topshop, people such as Kate Moss (who models and has her own range of clothing), Fearne Cotton, Peaches Geldof and Lily Allen, who have been seen wearing many Topshop items. Topshop has also expanded onto the internet at www.topshop.com. -Topshop Jobs- When I was 16, before I went into my old career, I actually working in Topshop for around 6-9months, and personally I thought it was a very great place to work, so I'd thought I'd give a bit about Topshop jobs. The first thing is that Topshop, especially big stores, tend to employ a large amount of staff, in the Topshop I worked in I worked along around 10-15 other people, in a fairly small store, and also staff tend to be swapped around with Topman by only if the Topman is in the same store. Another great thing about Topshop, is the amazing discount that the store provides, you get 20% staff discount for clothes for personal use, and an amazing added 40% discount for clothes you wear at work, which have to be from Topshop obviously (these discounts apply to Topman too). I would recommended a job at Topshop for students and part-time work, as it was really interesting and fun, as the working environment was really great and laid back, which is a real positive for a good working environment. Also for models working with big modelling agencies, such as Storm, there are frequently modelling jobs for the catalogues and catwalk shows with Topshop and Topman items, as my friend, who is with Storm modelling agency has had a fair amount of work from Topshop, but sometimes the 'special' look they are looking for is very selective. -Topshop Oxford Street- I often go into Topshop Oxford Street when I'm in Central London, and to me, it is like the God of all the Topshop stores, it around 4 floors, one of them Topman floor, and there is everything you could ever want from Topshop in this one store! No joke, it's fantastic. The store is fairly close to Oxford Circus tube stop, so access from the tube is easy, also many buses from London stop along Oxford Street, but stops can be fairly far from the actual Topshop store. The floor you arrive on is a Topshop floor, which has mainly the new arrivals from Topshop on the rails, and also has a lot of accessories aswell, and a sweet corner, if all the shopping is getting you all peckish! The next floor is the basement, which in my opinion has the best clothes in there, it tends to have the more Unique styles of clothes, and ranges such as the Kate Moss range, at Topshop, also shoes are on the basement floor, from Trainers to huge High Heel Shoes. The other floors tend to be a mix of Topshop and Topman clothes, but are regularly changed around, so depends on the day you go. Topshop Oxford Street sometimes has Fashion shows in the stores, so customers can see the clothes and styles that Topshop has to offer. The disadvantage of Topshop Oxford Street is the amount of people in there and how busy it can get, especially during weekends and School holidays, so my advice would be is to shop during the day, avoiding lunchtime and during rush hour, as it gets very busy around then. Also in winter, there are less tourists and visitors in London and Topshop, Oxford Street. -Topshop Fashion- Now, the most important part, the Fashion at Topshop. Well what a hard thing to answer, it depends on the style and types of clothes you like to wear, but in my experiences they have nice clothes to suit everyone and every style. In Topshop stores, there is a Petite Section and a Tall Sections, which I personally as a very petite woman at just 5ft, I found this really handy, as in some shops, which don't have sections, I find it hard to find clothes that fit me, and are suited to my size. The Petite clothes are mostly, normal clothes but smaller for us short women, such as dresses, jeans and skirts, as well as tops, which are better for women with bigger breasts. The fashion currently in the Petite sections are Mini Dresses and more Summery tops and dresses. Also Skinny Jeans are in Fashion in the Petite sections. Petite clothes come in sizes 6-16, but smaller stores may not have the bigger sizes. The Tall section, which I've had a quick nosey in, is often bigger then the Petite, and often doesn't have the exact same fashion as the Petite section, but like the Petite section, they are changed depending on the fashion, so currently, the fashion tends to be summery and flowery. The Tall section focuses on fashion, which is suitable for tall women, so it tends to be, currently, long Maxi dresses and Skinny Jeans, which look great on Taller women. Topshop has also got Kate Moss' range in, which is more pastel pinks and creams style, with more formal dresses, with a slight rock edge, such as formal jackets, and dark and pale flowery outfits. But in the Autumn the range will be changed, as they change every season. Ms Moss' style, tends to be pretty girlie outfits and styles, but also have some more rocky styles, like the glittery Lady Gaga shorts, which I think was part of Kate Moss' range. I personally, am not a huge fan of Kate Moss in general, and her range for Topshop isn't my style, and doesn't always look that good on me, but I can see hwy her range is so popular, with great and mostly unique styles of clothes, in with the now fashion of the catwalks. In Topshop, they also have the newest fashions for the season, and some guest designers doing special designs for Topshop range. Currently, the seasonal range at Topshop is getting autumns, with more work type styles, but also some dresses and pastel colours, which are coming into season apparently. And in most Topshop stores, have a Jean section, mostly all year. The disadvantage though, is the Jeans tend to be for women around 5"5 and taller, which is a little bit of a shame for more Petite women , but they do have Jeans in the Petite section, but mostly tend to make them in one style, and not always suited for everyone's bodies. But in the Jean section, Topshop does make Jeans in a range of styles, such as Skinny, Boyfriend style and Bootleg. Underwear is another clothing feature that Topshop sells, and they tend to be decent quality underwear too. From different styles, such as girls boxers to frilly knickers to delicate thongs, and also matching bras and knickers, but caution as bras sizes tend to be fairly smaller sizes, which is great for smaller women, but for women with bigger breasts, it could be a problem. But overall the quality of underwear is good, and very fashionable and elegant, and often Topshop have 'buy 4 for £7' or similar deals on the underwear Accessories are a huge part of Topshop, and Topshop seems to have everything and fashion loving women could want, from rings to necklaces to hair accessorises. Like the clothes, the accessories depend on the season and what is in fashion at the time, so currently, sunglasses, flowery accessories and gold accessories are in fashion and are stocked at Topshop stores. Also Topshop has accessories which never get old, such as silver accessories and more formal accessories, such as corsages, necklaces and rings, for weddings, proms and other formal times. Also Topshop sometimes puts accessories with certain ranges, to make everything match, like Kate Moss' current pastel colours range, goes very well with coloured accessories and simple hair accessories. Bags are another accessories that Topshop has, and are again of really good quality, and have a fairly large range. Topshop bags come in many styles, such as larger bags, canvas bags, more formal clutch bags and other bags, which celebrities have been wearing or from the catwalks, and have been changed for Topshop, as some bags are designed by season too. Personally I love the canvas type bags which Topshop have, they are handy for shopping, stylish (I have the 'I Love Shopping' one and love the style) and long wearing, as I thought it would break easily, but it has lasted me months and still going, very good quality. Now, the best part and may favourite thing, shoes! Topshop, like most clothing stores on the British High Street, provides shoes alongside clothes, and Topshop is no exception, but something that other stores has, are the amount of shoes and styles Topshop provides. The shoes Topshop provides are so varied and like everything else, are of very good quality. Topshop does provide shoes by season and styles in fashion at the time, like currently the Gladiator Sandals, Flip Flops and other Sandals, but in the winter, Topshop mainly focuses on Boots, Knee High and Ankle Boots. But also Topshop provides Trainers all year round, and I personally have the Plimsoll Trainers from Topshop, which I found to be comfy and good quality, and have not wore out after months of wearing them. Also shoes like High Heels, are always in fashion, and are always stocked in Topshop, but often the styles change, so if you see some you like, buy them quick before they go! -Topshop Pricing- Time to honest now, Topshop is a more expensive shop compared to other High Street stores, such as New Look or H&M, but you are paying for good quality clothes and accessories, and also paying for the Topshop name tag, as now Topshop is a very fashionable and well known shop, unlike other stores. I personally think Topshop is a great shop, but a disadvantages is that sometimes I don't always find items that I like or are in my style of clothes, as it always depends on what's in fashion and the season, and I currently can't find anything I like, and don't always have money for £40 Jeans when I can get then cheaper else where (New Look have Jeans for around £20). But when I do have money, Topshop is the first place I look, because when they have a range in your style, you love every item! An the accessories, bags and shoes are the best you can get without buying designer. Well worth it! Also after every season, which is after around 2 months, they have sales of the old stock, which is the best time to buy clothes, but be quick otherwise the clothes will sell out very quickly, and sizes will be gone quickly. -Topshop Opinions- My personally opinion on Topshop, is that it is a good company, with really great clothing and accessories, but styles are very selective and not always to my personal tastes, but especially in Topshop Oxford Street, I always think that there is something for everyone in there, so defiantly check out Oxford Street. But the disadvantages are sometimes the higher prices for items them other High Street stores, and not always having items for everyone's tastes, but I think Topshop is great store to buy some clothes and accessories from, but not for all my clothes, as they don't always suit my style or my body, but still a good store and well worth having a look in there on at the website. -Topman- I can't really write so much about Topshop without mentioning a little bit about Topman, for the men reading this, well Topman often has men's clothing and accessories suited to the season, such as Skinny Jeans, Plimsoll Trainers and very fashionable T-Shirts. But also they sell more formal outfits, such as Shirts and Ties, aswell as more formal shoes, suitable for work and formal events. Accessories also include Hats, Jewellery and the very fashionable Geek Glasses, which everyone seems to be wearing lately. Topman, like Topshop, is the King of all men's High Street stores, as it always has very current trends and fashionable clothes and accessories, but again, there might not always be items that you like or suit you as men. Obviously, I am a women, but I have to say, I do like the clothes from Topshop on, I think they look really fashionable, but suit all men's styles and builds, as they do a range of sizes of clothes, which I unfortunately don' t know a huge amount about. So I personally recommend Topman highly, but again they may not have items you like, but it is worth having a look anyway, saves you being bored to death while you girlfriend/wife/partner is shopping in Topshop!
I HATE Topshop! After reading a few reviews I seem too be the only person who thinks this?! My local store is really new & clean. It looks all very pretty with trendy mannequins in the window for show. After a good look round a few times i never see anything I like. They sell mostly really plain things like Tshirts, Hoodies & strap tops which are just plain colours. But they are so overpriced for what they are! For a plain black tank top it was £9.99? To be Honest I'd rather go to a local market and get one for £1.99 and it would be the same quality! They have a few highstreet fashion items but I think they are for the more smart/indie people. Another big annoying thing is they dont cater for clothes over the size of 10!! Everytime i find a peice of clothing i like i hate looking through all the racks for my size and never ending up finding it anyway so I never bother looking anymore! The staff are very nice and friendly and there are plently of them around too help you out but I dont think I will ever be shopping here unless they start doing something different, cater for size 12 and above and lower there prices!
Topshop is my all-time favourite high street clothing store. There is not a single time I go in there that I don't wish I owned almost everything I lay my eyes on. Topshop is part of the Arcadia group (also incorporating Topman, Miss Selfridge, Burton, Dorothy Perkins and Wallis) and has a very quick turnover. The brand boasts a number of collaborations with designers and celebrities alike (the most high-profile arguably being the Kate Moss range) and has recently expanded itself to the USA. The flagship store in Oxford Circus, London is, in my opinion, shopping heaven. There are 3 floors (or is it 4?) of amazing clothes where you can find ALL of the current Topshop ranges plus vintage and concession sections, as well as a hairdresser and sweet shop. Everytime I've visited the store it's been exceptionally busy, proving just how popular Topshop is. My local Topshop is a little more on the smaller side, but stocks most of the current range. I especially love the dresses and tunics as they're usually quite striking and different, and there are also leggings, skirts, jeans, coats and basic items like vests and t-shirts. The Unique range is great if you're looking for something a bit different. The mainline clothing range itself is always up to date with the latest trends and fashions, and whilst sometimes prices can seem a bit high, I for one think it's worth it as you won't find something nicer anywhere else. One of my favourite things about Topshop is the underwear range. There are really pretty underwear sets, and there is an ongoing 3 £4 knickers for £9 offer. In the sales, you can usually pick up bras for £7 (usually around £15) and knickers for £1/2. Topshop's sales in general are usually quite good, but you have to get there quick if you want to get the best stuff, as popular sizes are usually gone before you know it. Items are usually 25-50% off, and reductions increase as the sale continues. There are usually only end of season sales lasting a couple of weeks, but I've noticed in the current climate that sales seem to last a bit longer. I would recommend Topshop to any girl who loves fashion.
AHHH TOPSHOP! Now those are literally clothes which girls would die. If your reading this saying to yourself 'Whats Topshop' then i am shocked. I'll start by saying, they store everything in fashion you can think of, the clothes vary alot in prices from £5 to £100 or more, including a killer selection of skinny jeans. The lingerie line is so cute, and don't even get me started on the jewelry and earrings, just everything about this place is a dreamland. Oh and i can't forget their selection of so many different shoes, which to me are quite pricey, but you can flash the cash every once in a while...right? :] I was only ever going to Topshop in all the small places and then when i visted london i managed to find it, and i was gobsmacked!, theres like 3 floors of gorgeous everything, so once you've given the little Topshop a go. . Head for london for the real deal. Oh and i can't forget their little candy stand. . mmmmmmm. . After reading this i hope your grabbing your handbags and rushing there or atleast putting the effort in buying on the internet :]
This review is based on my experiences in Topshops in Glasgow. Topshop is one of those shops that you think you ought to shop in as a girl. Everyone always goes crazy when there is the new range or a sale and you undoubtedly get dragged in by friends saying "ooo Topshop have a sale, lets go!", but is it really all it's cracked up to be? Generally the shops themselves are quite nice to shop in. They have an almost boutiquey feel to them, yet also have clear sections for basics, jeans etc. There is plenty of room for manoeuvring between displays and although the shops are normally quite busy, they never seem to be crowded, unless there is a sale that is! When there is a sale it seems that Topshop becomes a war zone. The sale lines are displayed in order of price, with similar items together; however this does not last long as bargain hungry shoppers seem to pick clothes up and simply drop them anywhere. My experiences of Topshop sales are marred by having the item I reached for snatched away before I can get a look in. However, in my humble opinion, the clothes are usually overpriced, both non-sale and often in the sale. I generally prefer to browse the sale items on the Topshop website to avoid the crowds. As for the clothes themselves well, the ranges are generally aimed at the same bunch of people, there's little variety! I am petite and so I used to go to Topshop for their petite range, but now I'm more likely to go to Dorothy Perkins which, as another of the Arcadia group, is bound to have the same supplier and yet somehow manage to price their basics, such as jeans, much more reasonably. Having said all that if I was looking for an outfit for a specific reason or I was looking to buy something that wasn't a basic, then I would be tempted by the Topshop charm.
In my local shopping centre, Topshop is the first shop i aim towards because i know that there will be something i will buy because of how much they change the products inside so i know i will find something different every visit, and generally because of the things they sell there. Of course there are some occasions where that doesn't happen, but that's usually because i've been so adamant to buy more clothes and i end up visiting the store the next day! I will say there are some really odd things which i find very ugly, but then again Topshop have to suit other peoples needs too! Nevertheless, it's still one of my favourite high-street clothing stores for many reasons. This shop is aimed towards female teenagers and young adults which falls under my category, which for starters make's my shopping experience so much easier as i know there is a whole store full of stuff i can explore, unlike big stores such as Marks and Spencer's; it's for both Male and Female and for all different age groups so you have to search around the whole store for the section you like. Thats not really a big issue when i go shopping though, i just think it affects the overall apeal of the store. I think another reason i like this shop is because the stores itself have a really nice layout and designs all around the wall, with simple colours and you get a sense of chicness, whereas for example, stores Peacocks often feels cheap, over-crowded and everything's all a bit messy and around the place. I also have to give it to them for putting fashionable, trendy, good quality things up for sale for what i would say a good value - and when the sales come thats where the real value comes. (buy one get one free for sale items - how good is that!) Price is not my main priority when clothes shopping though - if its unbelievably pretty and a decent price, i will buy it! And thats what i find mostly happens when i'm in Topshop. Also they have a range of different clothing and accesories, to suit the needs of eccentric, glamorous sophisticated or out-going people and i think that's good so people can develop their own sense of style in one shop. They also sell sweets and other near the tills which are really cute. I recently visited Topshop and they had a big Hello Kitty coin bank with chocolate coins which i was lost for words when i first saw it, it was amazed and bought it - little things like that sold in the front till still make this shop more appealing. In my local Topshop store, they sell Pez, lollypops, and bags of all different kinds of sweets which I think is really good for gifts as they are very nicely packaged. In bigger branches, for example the MASSIVE oxford street store, there is a whole section dedicated to sweets with pick and mix and you have a huge selection of sweets; that also applies to the clothes and accesories as there are masses of different clothes, it all depends where you go to shop for Topshop. Overall, I think Topshop is a classy, sophisticated store with lovely clothes, and if you're a female you should definitely atleast have a browse around because i think you will be amazed. Sizes are 6 - 16. If you want to visit their website and do some online shopping, go here: http://www.topshop.com/
