Now that I'm a Topshop employee I've become rather obsessed with browsing the site every single day, It's part of my job I guess? With that comes all sorts of wants but mostly needs, I really do need about 80% of the store at the moment I swear! With that being said I thought I'd start up a new post in which I'd style up some pieces from Topshop and Topman as I do dream of becoming a stylist one day, so this will be like a really crappy digital version of that which will help you and I get fashion inspiration and also find items we just need in our wardrobes - stat! Now, let's talk about outfit #1...

I can't start without talking about this mad 70's zebra print shirt in all of it's glory because it is in fact glorious. As it's a monochrome piece it needed a spot of colour from the skirt and the purple pop is just what it needs, the suede fabric is also pretty on point for the current seasons trend. Suede, suede and more suede - fine by me! I love the stitch detailing along the side, it adds a unique touch and helps bring in a western vibe, switch the zebra pattern for a plain white shirt and cowboy boots with an added neck-tie and you're away. With this outfit though we're keeping it retro and doing so with some 70's accessories like a super skinny scarf and a flimsy black boater hat.

Mixing more materials together I thought of placing a leather studded belt to wrap around the skirt as I'd tuck the shirt into my bottoms to make the most of the skirt. Also adding more leather with the perfect black booties which are pretty much good for any outfit.

To add a little more colour you could go for a bold lip, I'm thinking the shade 'Watermelon' would look super sassy but if you're more into a subtle shade try a toned down red in the colour 'Freak'.
