Goodbye hopeless, dark, despairing January! Hello prosperous, beacon of light February! By now you should’ve ditched the diets and the other pointless resolutions, so let’s get down to business and discuss what you can get up to this month with the help of our February Issue.
1. SLOGAN PRINT TEES
From new street brand Hero's Heroine to the iconic political statements of Katharine Hamnett, big and bold slogan tees are a huge deal for this season. The t-shirt says it all, so just wear yours with a pair of jeans and you’re sorted.
2. VALENTINE’S DAY
If you want to be getting your romance on this Valentine’s Day, you’ll have to sharpen up. From smart shirts to dapper suits to formal shoes, explore our modern gent collection and update your sartorial style for the big day. And for what NOT to do (topless selfies, awkward greetings), check out our Dating Decoded video.
3. SCANDI SPORT
Inspired by the clean Scandinavian ethos of dressing, this trend fuses classic, easy to wear pieces with elements of modern sportswear for a clean and polished look. Think of technical macs teamed with crew sweatshirts, with the collection being completed by a strong stripe motif and a flag inspired print story.
4. AWARDS SEASON
From NME to the Brits to the legendary Oscars, it’s time for the A-listers to dress their best and get something to put on their fireplace. We’ll be getting our tuxedos on at home, uncontrollably weeping into a bowl of popcorn knowing we’ll never be famous. Just kidding. Maybe not.
BEST AWARDS SEASON STYLE COMING SOON
5. TOPMAN DESIGN
The Topman Design SS15 collection takes inspiration from a mishmash of two juxtaposing eras – the hedonistic ‘70s and the Britpop fuelled ‘90s. So get ready for iconic staples such as a suede fringed jacket and an Oasis-esque parka, amongst many more limited runway pieces.
6. CHUKKA BOOTS
New season footwear is all about chukka boots, especially in suede. Since they're a cross between a hi-top and an ankle boot, they're versatile and can be worn with jeans as well as smart trousers.
7. PEACE ALBUM
Birmingham’s finest indie lads Peace return with second album ‘Happy People’. Expect anthemic choruses, infectious riffs and funk laden bass lines if latest singles ‘Money’ and ‘Lost On Me’ are anything to go by.
RELEASED FEBRUARY 9TH
Sometimes trends can be confusing, but with this we’re giving it to you in black and white. Literally. Monochrome is a simple, clean and stylish trend that everyone can get on board with. Don’t believe us? Just take Nick Grimshaw’s word for it…
9. TOP PICK
‘As we move into spring, bombers make for a great transitional layer,’ states Topman Editorial Assistant Jamie Carson, who highlights this black textured bomber jacket as his choice for February. ‘With everyone and their granddad wearing this style now, the wool texture is a great way to add interest to your outfit and stand out.’
10. JUPITER ASCENDING
Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne and Topman ambassador Douglas Booth feature in a sci-fi epic with explosions and genetically enhanced hunters and Mila Kunis and spaceships and lasers and Mila Kunis. And did we mention Mila Kunis is in it?
