This month’s ‘From Catwalk to High Street’ focuses on how to achieve Topshop Unique’s designer looks for less!
The Unique team’s main focus for this season was textures – think velvet pants, leather-like pinafores, and sequin mesh dresses! Other key trends featured were chunky heeled Chelsea boots – these babies could rival the ever-so-popular Alvins – and of course the classic Autumn/Winter essential – woolly knits!

The look below was chosen due to its simplicity – anyone can pull off a cross knitted jumper and some velvet pants! What’s more, this outfit can be worn as it is for during the day, or it can be dressed up with these Missguided Jeffrey Campbell-alike glittery black Lolitas and embellished crop jacket from Topshop for a suave special occasion!

Berty’s Cross Print Jumper, £14.99, Missguided – Everywhere you look on the high street there is cross print! From jumpers, to leggings, to skirts – it seems that this symbol has become a Holy trend in the fashion world! So it makes no wonder that the high street took note from Unique’s A/W 2012 collection, where crosses were heavily featured. If you’re looking for a more casual feel, then look no further as this cross print jumper from Missguided will attend to your comfy needs! Whether it’s for a lazy day in, or for a mean shopping trip, this knit will keep you warm for Winter!
Velvet Trousers, £135, Topshop – Velvet is massive this season with the likes of Burberry Prorsum, Peter Pilotto, and Topshop Unique featuring this smooth texture in their designs, so it is only fitting that this outfit was chosen for this month’s ‘From Catwalk to High Street’. These pants may be pricey (well they are Unique), but they can be jazzed up with this smart pearl collared blouse from Zara for office-chic, or they can be paired with this River Island embellished vest and skyscraper heels from Miss Selfridge for a night out with the girls!
VERA Pointed Flatforms, £25, ASOS – Okay, so flatforms were so last season – think Meadham Kirchhoff and Christopher Kane, however if Unique think they’re Autumn/Winter material (they also had these babies in their S/S 2012 collection), then who are we to second guess? These gorgeous suede flatforms from ASOS are the perfect wardrobe staple and can see us through until Spring!
