Looking at clothing from Topshop Unique is like looking at trends on steriods and, this season, the message was exceptionally aggressive. Trends were layered over trends, embellished with sequins, and then accessorized down to the neon shoelaces, and, as much as it seemed to us, too much, we're sure that each piece on its own will be a temptation.
People say the Fall 2009 season is all about styling and this trend--of wearing black turtlenecks under color--couldn't serve as a better example. This look adds drama and depth to outfits that might otherwise look flighty, out of season, or just too optimistic. It plays up that layered tidiness that we've been seeing so much of for the past few seasons and it makes something interesting out of classic separates.
