For those style conscious fashionistas, the high-street can be just as chic with clothing influenced by designers and the catwalk meaning you get to wear the look but without going into your overdraft. High-street fashion can be for the skint yet stylish. Just because you shop high-street doesn’t mean you don’t know your fashion. For instance just look at Topshop, how far has this high-street brand made a name for itself among designer royalty, with celebrities and stylists constantly being spotted in their ‘favourite’ high-street store, and seen adorning a range of embelishments from Topshop. Fashion icon Kate Moss is such a huge fan that she’s even designed her own range for the store.

With celebrities wearing high-street and even our very own fashion forward Princess Kate Middleton (everything she wears seems to sell out in seconds) we can’t seem to get enough of these high-street labels. The reason being, you can get the latest fashions on a budget. Now tell me who doesn’t love a good old bargain. So here I am telling you how the high-street can be pocket friendly as well as trend setting. The highstreet today has never been quicker at turning catwalk trends into affordable clothes. Meaning that we get to steal their style first, mixing designer with high-street. These high-street outfits are being sold so similar to their designer counterparts, that it takes a sharp eye to spot the difference, and now the designers themselves are getting in on the action with big name collaborations meaning we can now buy designer looks at high-street prices. Topshop was the first high-street store in 2005 to debut its first collection at London Fashion Week; this has created huge opportunities for style-hungry women to get cut-price designer labels. With fashion constantly changing, there is no point spending so much money on something you are going to wear a couple of times. So, instead of buying that REALLY expensive haute couture designer piece that will go out of fashion next season, think Primark. Just take a look at the fashion trends from the streets; you will find some of the most fashionable must-haves that will get you drooling.

Breaking the rules and daring to be difFerent, Topshop stands head and shoulders above the rest to steal StreEt Style’s prestigious High-streEt store of the month award. What makes Topshop’s Spring/SumMer colLection the best for 2012?


Topshop’s aztec prints and bright neon colours have caught Street Style’s attention to take the crown as our favourite high-street store this month. Their summer collection breaks all the traditional rules of fashion. Combining three-dimensional prints with outrageous flashes of colour, which takes trend clashing to a whole new level. Taking inspiration from the Spring/Summer catwalks, Topshop wins the award for bravery by daring to break away from our fashion expectations and making a statement with their trend-setting achievements.,

Intricate tribal printing transforms the common associations of summer, steering away from the boring floral prints reproduced time and time again. Topshop’s innovative collection ensures you will be looking chic and on-trend for the Summer. Pick up your must-have items to make a statement this season. Stand out from the crowd with Topshop and embrace bright, bold pieces that will make you the envy of every fashionista in the country.

y t i r g a n i Ch opp Interview


Josie, a student from Southampton


University has always had an eye for those delectable


found in charity shops. She searches through the







into her fashionable treasure,


a whole new shopPing experience. Josie, when did you decide that you would try your luck with charity shopping? “I’m in my third year at university and really started charity shopping in my first year. I met new friends who had also dabbled in it and found that I had no money for the bigger stores so tried out a few charity shops, my first few times weren’t the best of successes but I carried on, charity shopping is all about patience, if you don’t find something one day don’t fret, you probably will another”. What would you say was the best way to charity shop?

Original Images

“The best way is to go with enough time; you don’t want to be in a rush, you may miss things! Take your time, look through every rail and be open minded, maybe try out something that you wouldn’t normally go for”.

It’s extremely cheap!

“Charity shopPing is alL about patience”

Do you think charity shopping is cost efficient? “Very, I wouldn’t normally spend over ten pounds and if I did this would buy a lot! It’s amazing buying something that you really like and cannot wait to wear and spending one pound fifty! I really recommend it if you’re a struggling student or money is a problem because it is extremely cheap!” What has been one of your best buys? “My best buy? Umm this is hard I have so many! I really like my cream top originally from next, ladies wear. It cost just one pound! And is perfect for the summer!” Is your wardrobe bursting at the seams then? “Yes! I’ve had to buy a rail, its perfect though, easy to find what I’m looking for! I went home one weekend and my mum told me to stop spending, i calmly told her it was cheap and cheerful and wasn’t a strain on my student loan. She was soon over it as i took her charity shopping the next day and found her a beautiful dress for her to wear that evening! Have you told all of your friends? Yes! We spend hours together in charity shops trying to the find something amazing, there is a lot of competition because you want to be the one to find that amazing top or that great pair of shoes and when your friend gets there first its quite upsetting, i just make sure that i borrow it from time to time ha ha! Would you recommend charity shopping? “Definitely, go for it, you feel much better about the amount you have saved and every girl loves a new outfit! I’ve charity shopped all over, Southampton, Brighton, Essex and my hometown Kent and believe me there is a lot out there that’s just waiting to be bought, and its cheap!”

C: I would say we have an east London, vintage inspired style with a gothic edge. L: I would say the style of the band is dark, edgy, understated yet fashionable! We love to find hidden gems in random vintage shops and mix and match whatever we find in the wardrobe. N: Dark folk inspired with a contemporary edge. V: We have a vintage look but not really twee girly vintage. Kind of dark edgy and alternative vintage! Wow I sound super cringe.

C: Urban Outfitters L: My favourite high street store would be Urban Outfitters! N: Urban Outfitters V: Most people say Topshop don’t they? It is good but; I am going to be wild and say H&M. I love H&M it’s definitely underrated.

C: I shop in charity shops, vintage stores and markets, though some high street shops such as Urban Outfitters and American Apparel are great as they also stock vintage clothing. L: We do like our vintage shops however we do hit the high street as often as possible. Topshop and Urban Outfitters are definitely my favourite fancies! Especially the restored vintage section in Urban Outfitters there’s always a tasty number in there. As for Topshop I do have to say they have great accessories that can transform an outfit. I’m hooked on big rings and chunky collars. Also I love the range of ear cuffs they have started doing! N: Yes, but also at vintage style markets. V: Yeah definitely! You’ve got to love the high street shops. It’s particularly good to get your staple basics from the high street. A good pair of black jeans and things like vest tops are perfect, the rest we mix and match between online boutiques, vintage and charity shops around London and Brighton.

Page 34.

C: Because they have really good quality clothes. I love the styles of most of their stock. L: Just because it is very trendy but not try hard. The clothes are both edgy and stylish which I love; you also get the vintage section that no one can deny is pretty fantastic. N: I love general, versatile, smart/casual and vintage themes, which they have, that can be worn for any occasion. V: Price wise, H&M give you a lot more for your money. Some stuff is even cheaper than Primark now! You also are very unlikely to find someone else wearing the same thing. They have great simple clothes; you can wear them with loads of different things. I’m also the same size in everything and it’s always a nice fit!

!"#$%&'()*%+'(%,#+%+'(-%62-,'/#)%,$+)2%3,4% C: I love Levis shorts, baggy jumpers and vintage patterned tops. I really love Gillian Zinser from 90210; I basically stalk her, as I love everything she chooses. L: Oh god I don’t know how I would describe my personal style!!!!! I’m very open to trying new fashion and styles that

At the moment my favourite are cut out sides or short at the front and long at the back. N: I’d say sophisticated but casual vintage look with a slight sexy edge. I love Fearne Cotton for her 60’s inspired high-necked elegant looks. Alexa Chung for her slight boyish but sophisticated style and Olivia Palermo for her sexy but incredibly stylish and on trend style. V: Ooh tricky… I’d say I do the whole dark vintage look but maybe slightly rocky? Wow that sounds horrid. I’m into girly stuff but I like a lot of grey and blacks and vintage shorts with

!"#$"%#&'&(#)*+(,-$#.*"/0 C: Yes, its definitely different, but I love finding a bargain! L: Definitely shop in charity shops! They are the best. Oversized cardigans and shirts are my favourite and the odd little dress that can be easily altered into a real treat. N: Yes occasionally, I am getting more into it recently as my mum is actually a bit of a charity shop veteran and has been pestering me to come along with her, as we both love finding bargains. V: I do I do I do. I have to be in the right frame of mind because it can be such hard work but you do find some absolute steals in them. There is always some really nice vintage stuff hidden away. They are particularly great for granny-style cardigans. I have tons!

L: O god I really don’t know eeeekkkkkkkk N: I’d say myself, as the others tend to explore the vintage/ charity side of things a bit more, although I’m being swayed more recently! However I would say we are all very addicted to shopping in general! V: Wow that’s a hard one. Hmm. I would say Laura is the most addicted to clothes and fashion. The twins probably shop more on the high street than she does, recently they’ve been pulling out some absolute gems that they’ve bought; it’s made me quite jealous! I do have a bit of a problem though. I can’t go shopping and not buy things. So I guess it’s between the twins and me.

N: Definitely Vikki for her edgy vintage look and endless amount of amazing shirts/cardigans she pulls out! Also she has a lot of friends in the fashion industry, which comes in very handy for us obviously. V: Definitely. I think everyone in the band has a really different look. I seriously envy Nat’s clean and polished aspect, she always looks perfect and elegant even if she’s just in jeans and a jumper! I love Char’s laid back sort of festival vibe. Laura is a fashion genius; she has such a good eye for stuff. She has a really creative, individual style. I can’t pick just one of them!

N: I’ll definitely be pulling out the high-wasted shorts and baggy printed tees and will definitely festival up my usually sophisticated style and be a bit more adventurous. V: I reckon its still the same style but just a Summer less layering etc but not dramatic changes like suddenly wearing bright flowery dresses. I have started getting in the Summer purchases already! Lots of low cut vests and shorts and not to forget maxi skirts/dresses…loveeee a bit of that! I’ve put my Winter fur coat away (its fake don’t worry haha) and I’ve got all of my crop tops ready to go.

!"#$%&'(%")*$"+&%,$$-%,./.-.%01'22.-34 C: No not yet! But H&M seem to always have nice bikinis and are always reasonably priced. L: Definitely not bikini shopping!

I found an amazing all in one strapless, royal blue, polka dot all in one swimsuit with a really low back. Although not so good for the tan lines! Not that I have to worry about that too much anyway. V: I have. I’ve brought two! But only because I’m going to Coachella Festival! Otherwise I leave that until the real Summer like July! I got mine from Primark actually; it’s such a hit or miss in there (mainly miss) that I’ve stopped bothering! But actually they had some nice simple ones in there that were quite flattering!

I wouldn’t say that I had a particular person that I look to for style inspiration as such, however if I see something I like on the TV, tumblr, in magazines or on the street then I might try it out. I think its much more interesting to pinch little elements from random sources, then it’s a much more individual statement.

!"#$%&'$()(*$*%+,-% .,*$%#/,-$%0#*"&,'1% I specialised in knitwear, and so I would say that. I really enjoy all the elements of it, how you can get so many different shapes and patterns from one ball of wool and some needles! I really find that there is so much that you can do, and that a concept can come from the smallest most insignificant thing and be turned into a work of art.

Absolute favourite is Burberry Prorsum (Christopher Bailey) just because he uses such wonderful tones of colour, and their overall look is fabulously British. Another designer is an Eco designer, Ada Zanditon, she has awesome concepts, and her digital art is great. I also like Mark Fast, just because his knitwear is amazing.

!"#$%&*%+,-)% *",::&'9%:"&;,*,:"+1

I tend to pick clothing styles that are quite relaxed and informal, with very subtle colours. I don’t like anything that is uncomfortable to wear or fussy to look at. Jeans, a t-shirt and a pair of Converse trainers make me very happy.

!"#$%#)(%+,-)% 0#7,-)&$(%$)('5*%)&9"$% ',21% I’m not usually a fan of overbearingly bright colour palettes, but this season’s pastel theme is really nice. Another thing I like is the range of digital printed fabrics that are everywhere at the minute. I quite like mixing up some of the other trends (metallic, baroque styling, drop waist) with these to create a statement.

Be logical. I always find that if I see something I really like, then it has to work with other items I already own. If it doesn’t then I don’t buy it. It saves me from having too many spontaneous items that I’ve never worn.

?'(%&$(.%,0%=;,$"&'9%,)% #'%#==(**,)+%$"#$%+,-% =,-;5'@$%;&7(%2&$",-$1% My leather jacket! Somehow this item works with everything! Jeans, a long dress, leggings, almost anything! Also, my Michael Kors watch, practical choice!

The best thing is coming up with a design and testing it out, trying to make it work, and then finally getting to the making process. Seeing the garment how you originally planned it in your head actually working out is a good feeling.

I mix it up. One day I’ll be dressed all pretty and girly in pink/bows/flowers and the next I’ll be in black jeans and an oversized t-shirt. It really depends on my mood and what I’m planning to do with my day.

Definitely the bright pastels we’ve seen all over the catwalk. I love bright colours so it’s really refreshing to finally see some colour coming through to the high street. I’m bored of neutrels!
