Meet Fleur DeForce, POPSUGAR Girls' Guide's new fashion series host! Some of you may know Fleur from her beauty and fashion videos on her own channel. Now, we're super excited to be bringing her style inspiration to POPSUGAR Girls' Guide! On this episode, she is making a list and checking it twice — with this ultimate holiday gift guide for girls! Which gift ideas are your favorite? Do you have any gift ideas you'd like to share?
Considering it houses racks upon racks of on-trend pieces, with reasonable price tags to boot, it's no wonder that fashionistas flock to Topshop. And the celebrity world is no exception, with favorites like Erin Wasson, Mandy Moore, and Ashley Madekwe incorporating Topshop pieces into their Fall wardrobes. But our favorite look as of late comes courtesy of Beyoncé, arguably Topshop's most famous fan. While on vacation, the star, who recently went vegan, wore a printed bikini for an impromptu seaside photo. Grab it now — we're sure it's soon to sell out — and decide for yourself who wears Topshop best with our ultimate celebrity roundup here, in the gallery.

The smoky eye is one of the holiday season's most coveted eye shadow looks, but applying all that black shadow can get pretty ugly if you don't know what you're doing. For those of us (ahem . . . like me) who aren't so skilled with smoky eye application, Topshop has gifted us its Smoky Eye Kit ($44). The kit contains the brand's uber-luxe kohl liner, a full-sized tube of its 3D Curve Mascara, and a palette with four shadow shades. While I love the liner and the mascara, my favorite has to be palette, mostly because it does the work for you. Along with your typical black shadow, Topshop's Tuxedo palette houses burgundy, purple, and cream shades, making it easy to create a bunch of different looks. This may be the only kit you need to get you through the holiday season. And as if that weren't enough, the entire kit comes tucked inside a fluorescent envelope clutch. Christmas has come early!
Stepping out into the wilderness should never force a girl to dress down — and the most adventurous, outdoorsy thing in our near future involves trekking into the (relative) wild to find and cut down a Christmas tree. If you're in a similar boat, we have you covered with an outfit that's warm and comfy but still stylish. Classic skinny jeans feel special with motorcycle detailing, and feet are guaranteed to stay warm out in the chill with Tory Burch's furry boots. A classic nubby sweater is a must, as is a wooly beanie to keep ears toasty. Your topper will vary depending on your zip code, but a sure bet is a quilted field coat. Add layers as needed. Shop our picks here.
Simple, functional, and timelessly chic — what's not to love about Chelsea boots? Step into the Fall fashion scene with our favorite styles from brands like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Zara, Saint Laurent, and Topshop. Make a shimmering statement in metallic finishes from Opening Ceremony, or take the preppy route in warm neutral tones from Madewell and Frye. The best part? These versatile boots can be worn with almost everything in your closet, from maxi skirts to skinny jeans.
The sensible dresser would balk at this outfit written down: neon with print with bright blue with a textured coat? It gives you vertigo just typing the words. Still, when we saw it all paired together on fashion editor J.J. Martin, we were pleasantly surprised. The neon acted as a neutral tucked into a statement pencil skirt, and a pale topper kept the overall effect light and bright (unlike a black or navy coat, which would've quickly weighed the whole thing down). She didn't play it safe with her accessories, either, using them to add extra bright doses. Instead of picking somber colors, it was vivid blue and cranberry for her bag and fur scarf, respectively. And the pumps, while nude, felt special thanks to a studded ankle strap. Want to re-create the entire look (or select pieces)? We've shopped it out below.
Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff, the designers behind Meadham Kirchhoff, launched their fourth collaboration with Topshop today, and this one has a pretty theatrical backstory. "This collection for Topshop was inspired by the idea of a band or a gang, which we named The Cherrys," the designers said in a statement. "The overall aesthetic was influenced by Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids, Kembra Pfahler, and glam rock." The designers admit that those myriad references will mean not everyone will love all 89 pieces in the collaboration, and they know that customers will "adapt or reject as they see fit." Still, we're willing to bet you'll find more than a few pieces you love, so shop your favorite pieces now. Bonus: click through to the very end of the gallery to meet the fictitious band, The Cherrys!
Why is something this basic so tricky to style? The sweater dress is so slouchy and easy, we either overcomplicate how to wear it or we veer on the side of too easy. The trick is finding the balance and adding interest, because quite frankly, sweater dresses aren't totally interesting on their own. Instead, play with the proportion by adding knee-high boots, and add a more definitive silhouette with a structured jacket, coat, or blazer. And, if your sweater dress is oversize, go one step further and cinch the waist with a belt to define your curves. As for the rest, don't go crazy — just finish it off with your favorite Winter accessories, like a printed scarf, cozy beanie, and sophisticated tote. We've done the work — just shop the outfit to pull it together on your own.
