I'm in My 30s, and This Is How I Shop Topshop Like a Grown-Up

I've heard people saying time and time again that they're too old to shop at Topshop. And, yes, I agree that at first glance Topshop is my 16-year-old daughter's festival dreams right now, as it's filled with crop tops, denim hotpants and sequins. But as much as I personally avoid those items, I can always emerge from Topshop with a few purchases that fast become wardrobe staples I'm really pleased to wear.

Some of my most-loved wardrobe items are Topshop that I've picked up over the years. And, yes, I have to admit that as I've reached my mid-thirties, my body's changed, and my style has evolved, so it's not always as easy as it used to be. I've been shopping at Topshop Oxford Circus since my early teens, and I can't think of another store that I've been shopping in since I was 12 and still get as excited about visiting. So to convince anyone who may be assuming they have to throw in their Topshop towel, I've put together the five golden rules that Lou and I stick to when perusing our high-street favourite.
