Is there anything more wonderful than when one of your favourite celebs offers fashion inspiration that’s within reach of your budget? Well yes, actually – when they wear two amazing, affordable outfits from the same store within a matter of weeks, as it turns out.
Amanda Holden started a wave of purchases at the beginning of July when she was spotted wearing Topshop’s sellout Austin midi dress, a pretty floral number that’s been flying out of the shop all season long. Now she’s put another beautiful Topshop number firmly on our ‘to buy’ radars, and we predict that it’ll disappear from the rails just as quickly.
The Britain’s Got Talent star chose a stunning bardot midi dress with a ruffled neckline and raffia buckled belt to record a recent episode of Heart Radio’s breakfast show, which she co-hosts with fellow presenter Jamie Theakston.
And after she shared a picture of her look for the day with her 1.2 million Instagram followers, it quickly became clear that the piece was set to be very popular indeed. ‘Your style is to die for,’ exclaimed one fan, while a second agreed: ‘I loooovvvveeee this white dress!!!’
While Amanda, of course, made the outfit look a million dollars, anyone hoping to shop the style themselves will be pleased to hear that it actually retails for a much more accessible £39 – and it’s still in stock in almost every size on Topshop’s website.
We love Topshop’s suggestion of teaming the feminine silhouette with a chunky contrasting sandal to toughen it up a little, but you could also dress it down with white trainers, or up with a wedge or stiletto heel.
Add a pair of fun statement earrings and an on-trend straw clutch bag to play up the raffia details, and you’ll be ready for any occasion the summer throws your way – except, perhaps, a white wedding…
