Westfield London, first floor, unit 36
A strong window display at Topshop clearly shows three of this season’s biggest trends: 1970s, denim and sports-inspired. A tan-coloured corduroy miniskirt (£30) and a paisley top (£32) are good examples of the former, but a shaggy fake fur jacketis possibly a bit too warm and fuzzy for spring. Topshop is famous for its denim, and rightly so. There is a huge variety of fits and washes, including a 1990s-inspired ‘Mom’ jean, a classic skinny and a variety of boyfriend styles. Helpfully, the differences between each style are clearly explained and illustrated. Quality is good and, with most pairs costing £40, Topshop’s jeans represent great value for money.
Although the trends are clearly illustrated in the windows, once in store everything feels a bit jumbled together. A large Sale area on the upper floor is messy, although it is well hidden in a corner. There are very few staff on the shop
floor. That said, when I do eventually find a sales assistant they are helpful and find my size quickly in the stockroom.
