In certain parts of the world—let’s just say the internet partsspring has already sprung. Proof positive is this joyful little romp from our friends at Topshop. Enjoy!

Of all celebrated occasions and festive dates, New Year’s Eve expects the most out of your outfit. Especially if you’re going to be in New York City, and especially if you’re writer/singer/style icon Hollis Wong-Wear.

No, the Seattle-based GRAMMY nominee and Macklemore collaborator isn’t performing in the final moments of 2014—or at least there are no plans for such a thing as of yet. But wouldn’t “always be prepared—and dressed!—for anything” be a good New Year’s resolution? And one to enact early? We took Wong-Wear into the dressing rooms of our Downtown Seattle store to dial in three versions of ready-to-go ready-to-wear to kick off 2015.

Party season, storm season: The two sure aren’t mutually exclusive. Depending on where you live, going out for a good time can be a heck of a battle, but neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night can keep Seattle-based dancer and choreographer Kisha Vaughan down. Not with these looks in the mix.


Call it fashion’s unofficial kick-off to the Holiday 2014 party season: Topshop and Topman celebrated the opening of their New York City flagship on Fifth Avenue with a heck of a bash inside Grand Central’s Vanderbilt Hall. As exclusive Topshop partners, Nordstrom was only too happy to help our friends celebrate. Here’s our inside report on the very good time. 

Everybody Loves Sir Philip: Pictured here with Poppy Delevingne and Ciara on his arms, Sir Philip Green—Topshop’s parent-company owner—took a minute to give a shout-out to Pete Nordstrom and the rest of the company for a successful and stylish partnership during his welcome address.

Bey in the Place To Be: On the heels of the other big Topshop news—the announcement of the Topshop X Beyoncé-partnership, that is—Queen B dropped jaws as she quietly slipped into the party wearing this sparkly Topshop number.

Sister, Sisters: Among the celebs in attendance was this pair of chic sisters: Poppy and Cara Delevingne and Nicky and Paris Hilton.

Party People, All Night Long: Leave it to Cara Delevingne to get things started on the dance floor. Live jams from Jessie J (pictured), Nick Jonas and Lionel Richie (yes, the very; he and Sir Philip are buds) rocked the house—er, the train station.

Keep On Babin’ On: But of course the fashion was on point. From left to right: model, mom and art director Julia Restoin Roitfeld, British model Jourdan Dunn and New York City-based model and DJ Harley Viera-Newton exemplified the turned-out turnout.

Nordstrom & Co. On the Scene: Brandy Nordstrom, Pete Nordstrom, Nordstrom’s Topshop Director Deniz Anders, Sir Philip Green, our gal Olivia Kim, model Cara Delevingne and Nordstrom Executive Vice President and General Merchandise Manager Tricia Smith

Whoa. Topshop X Beyoncé

It’s sort of like your wildest dream has finally come true—just not the part where you get to sit around eating chicken fingers and pound cake while snapping selfies with Blue Ivy on your lap.

The rest of it is real, though. Very real. This time next year you’ll be hitting the streets (if not the gym) in Beyoncé-designed street and activewear from our friends at Topshop.

But hey, wait, don’t call it a collaboration. Bey is partnering with the iconic high-street retailer for the launch of a new line, Parkwood Topshop Athletic Ltd. Read: this isn’t a one-off thing. Look forward to season upon season of crop tops, jogger pants and curve-hugging lines. The only downside is waiting for the fall 2015 drop of the first collection.

Guess we’ll have to bide our time by working out to our favorite B tunes—“Get Me Bodied” maybe?

Belgian blogger Sofie Valkiers (Fashionata) is killing it this season with her street style. I’ve spotted her in every corner of the globe now, and she’s always on point. Today’s look is all about that cape shawl. What a stunning statement piece! The hits of leather in this outfit add great texture and urban edge. Her bold blue bag stands out and gives some nice contrast to her tonal look. Oui oui, ma cherie!

Annie is one of my favorite personalities at Fashion Week and beyond. As an editor at Refinery 29, Annie is not only incredibly stylish, but has a great sense of humor, too. I dig this biker-babe-in-the-city look, with her cropped moto and premium black and white accessories. I am always drawn to the color red and this belted dress is pure perfection. A few subtle pieces of jewelry and a bold red lip, and you’re ready for Fashion Week.

Oh Linda Tol, how much do I adore thee? Seriously, Linda is a never-ending catwalk of awesome outfits. She’s also super sweet and fun, which makes style stalking her way more rewarding. I love this cheeky tee, which is perfectly appropriate for Fashion Week. Overalls are still a popular style and this modern, design-oriented pair is particularly covetable.

Olivia Kim—Nordstrom’s Director of Creative Projects and curator of our monthly Pop-In Shops—recently joined the likes of Cara Delevingne, Tavi Gevinson, FKA twigs and many other influential women in the pages of Topshop’s seasonal zine, ‘Generation Girl.’

“The more textured you are in terms of your interests,” Olivia says in her Topshop Q&A, alluding to her passions that range from art to interiors to animals, “makes you a more rounded and complex person.” Olivia also notes her own most inspirational female icons: Maria Callas, Ray Eames and Miuccia Prada. Her number-one style tip? “Get [a dress] with beads, sequins, lace or feathers, something gorgeous and sexy, and then just throw on a pair of sneakers and call it a day.”

On the topic of Topshop, Olivia says, “For me, it is London…. It’s so quintessentially British—like the Union Jack, double-decker buses and red phone booths.” Style-wise? “It makes you feel like you can try a million different looks, [from] preppy to bohemian.”

To that end, we asked Olivia to tag a few dozen favorites from our current Topshop and Topman inventory. See a small sample of those below, and read the full interview over at

Topshop Mesh Body-Con Dress

“If you have one dress to pack, this would be my choice. It can feel day with a pair of flat Chelsea boots and casual jacket, or go sexy chic at night with a pair of classic high-heel Manolo BBs in black suede. Add a bold red lip and Parisian chic, you are!”
