Best of the Highstreet for SS13: Topshop, A|Wear, Warehouse

Hurray, it's the 1st of March, and spring has well and truly sprung (at least, in our nation's shops)! Thinking of picking up a few new spring-y bits and pieces? I've done the rounds of the highstreet's spring collections so you don't have to - here's a wee roundup of the bits that caught my eye. You're welcome!

Topshop SS13 Collection and Press Day Dublin

At Topshop, there were more trends than you could shake a stick at: checks, colour, monochrome...you name it, you'll find it here. Matching separates were huge - lots of shorts with little jackets - along with intricately detailed mini skirts and oversized slouchy jumpers.  The accessories were really, really strong, from mixed metals to neon, crystal, rose gold and tribal inspired pieces.

Awear SS13 Collection and Press Day Dublin

Irish highstreet favourites A|Wear are celebrating their heritage - the denim line has been revamped with each style now bearing an Irish name: think Erin, Mona, Orla etc. Tribal print and monochrome were huge as was the early 90s trend. Accessory wise, the handbags were particularly strong with that red animal clutch practically begging me to take it home. Soon, my lovely, soon...

Warehouse SS13 Collection and Press Day Dublin

The collection at Warehouse was probably my favourite in that it most appealed to my personal style - I basically live in dresses and Warehouse do some of the prettiest around. There were some really lovely floaty embellished white dresses that had me dreaming of sunny beaches, along with some strong 90s inspired bits and pieces. I really fell for a black fringed tshirt adorned with silver metal balls - sounds horrific, but looks divine. It's definitely on my list.

Anything catching your eye? And what are your favourite highstreet collections for spring?

I really like the bracelets in the topshop collection but the Warehouse clothes are more my style. It seems to be that bright clothes are very in at the moment.....pity they don't look so good on me!

Great pictures. Everything looks so great. I think Topshop's collection is so great. I think those earrings with the skinny long spikes are calling my name.
