The Topshop Unique Spring 2016 collection featured pieces from of an English gentlemen’s wardrobe exposed through cricket vests which were peppered with holes that alluded to the skin, cinched with skinny patent leather belts and then layered over jumbo polka-dot skirts or ankle-nipping cigarette pants. The oversize pin-striped blazer, a city boy favorite, was redone as a minidress and worn with huge mismatched earrings, while traditional white button-down shirts were toughened up with leather.
The most convincing pieces in the Topshop Unique collection had a gentler sway about them, though, one that spoke to the soft, feminine mood that’s in the air overall this season. The array of chiffon dresses—one of which was covered in a charming strawberry pattern—had an innocent garden-party feeling that was anything but fusty. With printed lingerie to match the motif of each diaphanous frock, the look presented a fresh answer to the naked dress conundrum.
