The anti-cliché Christmas


This Christmas it’s all about going out, having fun with friends and expressing your individuality through partywear. Whether you’re all about grungy tailoring, modern sportswear or glitter mini dresses – Topshop have got it covered. This is party dressing only for you. This is the anti-cliché christmas.


1. The london girl

If your style is off-kilter, fashion-forward and cool then you are most likely the London girl. Channel British eclecticism by layering a lace pinafore dress over a classic white shirt or lightweight knit. Finish with a red lip and a loafer for polished finish. 

Make like supermodel Stella Maxwell and rework your favorite casualwear pieces into a party dressing look. Throw a military jacket over velvet shorts and sheer tights for an alternative take on eveningwear, add a skinny scarf for edge.

2. The pretty girl

Ruffles, lace and glitzy embellishment set the tone for the pretty girl, whose look is romance and feminity. So style up lace midi dresses and embellished denim with luxe faux-fur coats for a new wave of retro glamour.

Be the ‘girl in the red dress’ and add this iconic beaded piece to your repetiore. As worn here by Lottie Moss, paired with chic accessories and sexy, undone hair.

3. The grunge girl

Late to the party but always the last one standing? If this sounds like you then you’re this season’s grunge girl. This look is all about high-low dressing, so consider styling a spidery lace dress with an oversized hoodie or mixing a well-worn rock tee with a long kilt and chunky boots. The grunge girl’s sexiness is innate and unforced – it’s all about looking great and feeling confident.

Need to go slightly dressier? Take style cues from Londone Myers and opt for a glitter bodycon dress with a retro faux-fur coat. 

4. The urban girl

If your style chimes most with the urban girl, congrats – you’re the embodiment of casual-cool. Stay true to your tomboy roots and elevate your sportswear a minimalist sandal or heeled hiker boots. Practical outerwear is key, so opt for hip-hop inspired puffer jackets, hooded sweats and retro track tops to dress-down a going out look.

Dutch model Kiki Willems really owns this look. We love the skater-girl vibe of the sweater dress styled back with a glossy puffer and a metallic clutch bag.


5. The fashion girl

If you’re a fashion girl, you probably want a look that takes you effortlessly from day-to-night. The velvet suit jacket is your key here. Effortlessly styled for the office with simple jersey and a pair of tailored wide leg trousers, the look is transformed for evening by way of matching velvet cigarette pants.

If you’re anything like Damaris Goddrie, sometimes you just want to wear jeans. Elevate a straight-legged pair with a semi-sheer jersey body, finishing the look with an on-trend puffer for an easy nonchalance.
