Wearing Las Vegas, the Topshop way

Image

From sequins to snakeskin, Topshop has Vegas covered.

When Brit style giant Topshop hit Las Vegas in March, the opening celebration extended from the flagship store at Fashion Show to Tryst at Wynn, where go-go dancers dressed in custom pieces (studs, sparkles, tassels) shook it through a crescendo of gold confetti and glow sticks.

The world knows this city for just that kind of night—the Strip’s sleepless, sensory rainbow. And who can blame a fashion house for having fun with the neon palette, the gaudy-cool of souvenir iconography and sparkles upon sparkles upon sparkles? We don’t, which is why we’re fans of Topshop’s only-in-Vegas collection. The nightlife vibe is there in force, from miniskirts to stilettos, but it’s balanced with breezy casuals that capture our culture’s hipster lining. Here’s a taste of the Vegas everyone knows.

Roar Flame Sandals. A hot pink sole for a city with a soul that’s just as neon. The inside heel echoes embellishments of silver on vine-like navy straps, with a kiss of snakeskin on the outside. Shoes like this make legs the main event. $110

Bejeweled Basque Dress. Why dream of seeing your name in lights when your body is one slick zipper away? Classic lines soften the confection of the fabric for a dress that’s right from dinner to dancefloor. $400

Snakeskin Clutch Bag. Next to sequins, snakeskin might be the official pattern of our hard-partying city. But we work hard to play hard, making this synthetic clutch a double winner. Bold enough to stand out on the table during a power lunch, it won’t overpower an outfit at the club. $40

Pearl Bead Pelmet Skirt. Shine abounds in the Vegas collection, and the glittering pieces layer for over-the-top, scene-stealing looks. Want to turn heads and maintain a little mystery? Pair this mini with neutrals that let its rose-colored pop speak for itself. $150

Gold Soft Biker Jacket. Gold is the color of wealth and glamour, precious in ancient and modern times. This jacket does the shade right, with a softly structured shape that flatters without being stiff and zipper asymmetry lending a playful edge. $360
