3 Ways To Wear Topman

I had the wonderful opportunity to review a full outfit from our sponsor, Topman, and test it out with some of my pre-existing Topman clothes. These were all extremely versatile items, as can be seen in the three looks presented here. 

I have to say, I have always loved the fit of Topman. As a teeny queer, I have had great luck with both pants and tops, and these items were no exception. One thing to note: the two different shirts I am wearing appear to be the same "style" of shirt (short sleeve, classic fit by Topman), but the denim shirt is a Small, while the tie-dye yellow shirt is an XS. So make sure to try things on!

These items are all pretty versatile. But here they are worn all at once! Look at that layering! I've amazed myself!

Everything is extremely comfortable. I think that bomber jacket is my new favorite item of clothing.

This beanie has just the right amount of flop to look like I didn't futz with it for five minutes.

Sonny has always raved about these chinos, so I decided I had to try them out. I, too, am in love with the way they fit.

You can see that items like these can be dressed up or down, depending on your accessories. A tie and suspenders dress it up, while a beanie and bomber dress it down. And footwear will always be a visual cue to the dress code in which you are operating.

Pattern mixing is alive and well, friends. Topman has a lot of interesting prints, like in this Baroque print denim shirt. Mixing large-scale pattern with small-scale pattern is a great way to start out mixing it up.

I don't usually wear crew neck sweaters, but with this beauty I was converted. So soft, so warm, so purple.

These are actually black and grey striped jeans from Topman that I found a while back. I love the way they fit too, and it's fun to see a smart wool sweater like this dressed down a bit while still maintaining its class.

I forget sometimes that purple and yellow are complimentary colors. I've also found that I like the look of purple and wine together, as can be seen with the bomber in Look 1. I like to add a pop of color to an outfit with a handkerchief in my back pocket; it adds that little something extra, and it's there if I need it for sneezes, sudden rain, or to comfort a friend/romantic interest.

Topman possibilities can be combined endlessly, from street to smart to that street + smart mix I'm still working on achieving. And they all fit me really well. In my experience, that's saying quite a bit!
