The Japanese trend shows no signs of slowing as more shops release their eastern inspired pieces. Topshop gets my vote for their gorgeous knitted kimono style top, which gets full marks for wearability. Unlike the silk and satin versions around, the knitted fabric will be softer, easier to wear, and so much more flattering. And the plain yet elegant black colour means it won’t look out of date in ten seconds like the patterned versions. Best of all it’s machine washable, and costs an affordable £40. If you’ve got the legs, team with these equally beautiful Lotus Print Silk Shorts from the Topshop Boutique range. [Charlotte Howells]
