Fashion North’s top picks: Topman @ The Bridges, Sunderland

When I think of affordable and trendy pieces I always think of Topman first. They’re cool, but not in an obvious way. It’s different, but not tacky. Topman had a wide and interesting range to suit all styles.

Having easily the best jeans on the high street and a tasty 10 per cent off for students (with a valid student card or Unidays account) it’s the go-to for the millennial generation. That being said, it’s not only for us, with pieces suitable for older and younger ages too.

We’re in that strange period of weather – spring is coming, but we’re not quite there. Topman is gradually getting in its spring/summer stock, but there’s still the odd trickle of autumn/winter left. It’s ‘swinter’ I guess.

We’ve styled some pieces together that give a healthy mix of both. An outfit where you can get your ankles and arms out for spring, or on the colder days stick on a pair of funky socks and a jacket and still look rockin’.

Reverse style shirts have been around a while and they’re still not going anywhere anytime soon. Topman has a wide variety of them averaging around £25.

Short sleeve jumpers, like seen below are perfect for this time of year. They’re a swinter essential. A jumper for the crisp mornings, yet short sleeves for the sunny afternoons.
