AW12 Lust Haves... Scorching High Street Tops

A few styles I'm coveting this season...


1: ASOS, £38

Hit the Baroque trend in full-on stun mode! A full-length catsuit version with skinny velvet legs is also due in soon... *hyperventilates with excitement*

2: Glamorous

This would look gorgeous over a studded bralet and leather skinnies, or to sauce up a pencil skirt.

3: Matalan

A nod to Great Gatsby chic - I'd wear this with a similarly embellished or fringed mini, a pleated midi or a sheer maxi, to work the twenties vibe to the max.

4: Missguided, £26.99

So excited that an AW crop top avalanche is hitting the shops this year! Obsessed with the rock chick embellished styles beginning to trickle onto the high street... Perfect with leather or high waisted skirts.

5: Matalan, £22

Loving the mock croc twist on the peplum, and the sleeves will keep the chill off! This would look equally fab with treggings or a ladylike pencil skirt. For an even sexier take on the long sleeved peplum top, check out River Island (see this post).

6: F&F at Tesco, £16

Such a chic, beautifully tailored example of the peplum top - work a ladylike look or dip a toe into gothic romance.

7: F&F at Tesco, £20

And talking of gothic romance... Drooling over the Edwardian styling of this high-necked sheer shirt. And the piping details don't just add to its beauty - I think they'd also act a bit like those "illusion" panels - with the side and waist detailing accentuating and minimising the waist, and the "V-neck" panel flattering larger busts, whilst enhancing smaller girls. Who knew supermarkets could be such treasure troves?!

8: Next, £28

Luscious vintage styling... You could go (or should I say wiggle?) almost anywhere in this, whilst all the time feeling like a Mad Men extra - and what could be more fun that that?

Have a look through my past posts for more of my AW picks, like these velvet tops.

Now to get on with preparing my seasonal skirts edit...
