CQ Shopping Edit: New in stores this week
The Bank Holiday weekend marks not only the start of a new month, but also cements the move into Spring; the season of new beginnings. With that in mind, what better time to give your wardrobe a spring clean? And, of course, that means you'll just have to top it up with some fresh, new, contemporary items. Check out our top picks of some of the best Spring / Summer 2013 pieces brand new in store this week.
This monochrome Striped Sleeve Crop Top (£20) by Topshop not only channels sports luxe in a fresh new way with double stripe detailing, it also has a pretty feminine twist with its black mesh sleeves.
This striking Shirt Dress in mixed stripe and floral print (£50), offers the ultimate fresh Spring look. From the ASOS Collection, this dress is a premium, cutting edge piece which I think is well worth investing in this month.
We first spotted this piece on the House of Holland Spring / Summer 2013 runway, and have been lusting after it ever since. This Raffia Jewelled Beanie (£140) has been finished with oversized jewel embellishment, for a striking and edgy contrast. I heart it / want it / need it.
This silk Colour Block Skirt (£155) from the Whistles Limited Edition collection is a real lust-have. The navy and white contrast gives a striking, professional look, whilst the relaxed fit and colour block tab detailing hints at sports luxe; a perfect contrast for an effortlessly chic wear.
A twist on the typical Oxford shirt, this striped, sleeveless swing shape Button Back Top by Reiss (£69) has a stiff, slim collar and pearly white button detailing up the back. A really cute alternative to a traditional shirt.
