Today's must have comes in the form of this strappy lace vintage inspired number from Topshop. The trend for wearing delicate lingerie inspired pieces as everyday wearables has been around for a while now, ever since Marc Jacobs showcased his Autumn / Winter 2013 collection at New York Fashion Week earlier this year. But how, do you war a piece like this, for work? Or even play?
Instead of baring all with naked shoulders and exposed arms, throw a basic white or black jersey tee underneath. Make a contrast with the dressy style details and luxe fabrication with a cool staple underneath. Follow this look through with a pair of chunky black ankle boots. and ensure your hair is messy and un-done looking. Think pretty grunge.

The dress comes in midi length and features contrast nude lace detail on waist panels, neckline and hem. Interested? Check it out at Topshop above.
The end of London Fashion Week is always met with a mixture of emotions - on the one hand, we're all sad to see the end of a fashion and celebrity filled week, and on the other we're all craving a normal schedule (and our beds). As we come back down to earth with a bump, check out some of our favourite moments from this years LFW.
Because It's London baby
We got the Queen, we got Topshop, we got some of the coolest and original designers on the planet, and we got Harry Styles.
That time Cara Delevingne...
Dressed up as a cheese burger. Or made Harry Styles wear a balaclava. Or kissed Sienna Miller.
It has the best FROW of the season
There are several reasons why we love Henry Holland, but that's another feature in itself. When it came to the House Of Holland show on Saturday evening, there was a buzz of excitement not just over the collection, but for the star studded front row. There was the usual show of faces - Daisy Lowe, Ellie Goulding, pals Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof, Nick Grimshaw, Kelly Osbourne AND One Directions Harry Styles - but instead of sitting there pouting there way through the show, the coolest Fashion Week gang around danced, chatted, pointed out pieces they loved, and at the end, whooped and clapped louder than anyone else in the room for their friend the designer. D'awwww.
Derek Blasberg's Instagram snaps
He's best known for his fashion musings (not to mention being the Editor-at-Large for Harper's Bazarr) but put a camera phone in Derek Blasberg's hand, and you get some of the best celebs-behind-the-scenes photos ever. For example...
The Burberry finale
For AW13, Christopher Bailey made it rain whilst models walked along the catwalk with umbrellas. How could he top that come SS14? By sprinkling a delighted crowd with a shower of rose petals, of course.
With the weather taking a sharp turn towards Autumn, we can't stop dreaming about getting home from work and changing into the comfiest clothes around; pyjamas. Throw out your ex-boyfriends ratty t-shirt with all the holes, forget that hideous set your aunt purchased for you last Christmas that you still haven't worn, and treat yourself to a new pair or two this season. Trust us, you won't regret it after a day of trudging through miserable weather!
Topshop have got some great sets to suit a range of tastes at the moment, from sexy and delicate to cool and comfy. If you're feeling romantic, why not light a few candles and slip into the Button Up Satin Teddy (£30) or go to bed in a stylish fashion wearing the £22 Mono Flower shirt and shorts? If you like your pyjamas oversized, this 'Rather Be In Bed' Tee (£18) is the perfect addition to your nightwear; just add a pair of wooly socks and curl up. Last but by no means least is the loungewear we love: Topshop's Multi Coloured Sweetie Print Set is £53 for both the sweater and bottoms.
Which pyjamas are your favourite? Let us know in the comments below.
Top to bottom Studded Leather Biker Boots £35, Borg Collar Mix Fabric Coat £50, Kilt Skirt £16, Faux Fur Leather Look Biker Jacket £35, Cable Front V Neck Jumper £14, Velvet Trim Tartan Dress £25.
Today's Must Have sees us admiring F&F's Autumn Winter collection again following the launch of the brands latest nationwide TV campaign. After watching the F&F AW13 show at Somerset House back in May, I have to admit I was impressed - the Saint Laurent-esque pieces looked great on the catwalk and, as always, the trend driven collection is seriously purse-friendly too.
Commenting on their latest TV advert, F&F said "We wanted to demonstrate the personality of our collection through movement, something we've never done before. F&F is in tune with trends, and this is something we strive for when seeking talent and collaborators." The grungy collection is emphasised by a spot of freestyle dancing throughout the ad, with British dance stars from The London Olympics bringing fashion to life through interpretative, street dance and hip-hop.

Our favourite Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh married her fiancé Professor Green yesterday in a pretty ceremony in the Cotswolds! Don't they look adorable? Not long after celebrating their nuptials the newly weds shared photos of their beautiful day on Millie's Instagram profile, with both the reality TV star and the rapper taking to Twitter in the evening to thank legions of fans for their well wishes.
After Pro Green proposed with a huge sparkler in Paris, we wondered if Millie would be swept up in the moment and choose a big dress, however, the stylish bride went for a characteristically 'hippie chic' look in a vintage style Alice Temperley gown. The 23-year-old bride teamed her dreamy 'Bluebell' wedding dress - which detailed a fluted drape in the skirt and hand stitched embroidery that ran across the front to the hips at the back - with a pair of Christian Louboutin heels and a halo braid surrounded by flowers. Congratulations to the happy couple!
With New York Fashion Week in full swing and London Fashion Week on the horizon, we thought it was time to pull focus away from the catwalk and take a look at who's been sitting pretty on the front row. Obviously nothing is going to beat an adorable Harper Beckham making Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour crack a smile at Mummy Beckham's show, but we spied a couple of equally stylish ladies on the FROW at the Kaufmanfranco RTW SS14 show who were willing to try.
First up was style queen and regular NYFW face Olivia Palermo, who manages to be EVERYWHERE come Fashion Month (are we sure she doesn't have a clone or two out there?) The gorgeous socialite adopted a 'typical' Olivia look, walking the line between casual and smart with some expert layering thrown in. The 27-year-old shared details of her outfit on her blog, confessing that she loves layering blouses under dresses as "it brings a special touch to an ensemble that I find very chic." I adore the navy CH by Carolina Herrera dress and her perfectly tousled plait - kudos Olivia.
A few seats down from Olivia, model and actress Ashley Greene made me do a double take in her all black ensemble - talk about vamping it up! The 26-year-old looked stunning in a grungy yet sleek look, although I would have preferred it if she'd worn boots or an exciting pair of strappy sandals as apposed to those heels. Ashley has sat on the front row at Kaufmanfranco for the last few seasons, and is obviously as big a fan as ever, tweeting "Had a wonderful time at the Kaufman Franco show today #nyfw #kaufmanfranco #amazedagain"
Who's look do you prefer - Ashley's rebellious outfit or Olivia's sweet ensemble? Let us know in the comments below.
SHOP NOW: Loake for Topshop Traditional Brogue Boots £190
The catwalks might be looking forward to Spring Summer 2014 right now, but today's weather has done little to dissuade our longing for cosy coats, knitwear and waterproof footwear!
Step in - quite literally, Topshop's latest collaboration with UK shoe manufacture, Loake. For the first time in 130 years of the brands history, Loake have created three handmade brogues especially for women which will be sold exclusively by the high street giant. Inspired by beatniks and skins and in-keeping with Topshop's AW13 trend 'This is England', the boots take an androgynous turn, adding a masculine edge to any modern girls wardrobe. Aren't they beautiful? We've got our eyes on the cherry red ankle boots...
From the catwalk to high street, jeans are THE fashion hero. A staple for everyone, jeans provide a timeless base for every outfit and a variety of occasions, no matter what your style. Brush up on your denim do's and don'ts for the season below and shop our recommended picks to ensure your autumn/winter 2013 wardrobe is as sartorial as it is practical.
DO have fun!
Take influence from ASHISH who mixed sequins and denim galore on the catwalk - denim doesn't have to be boring! Jeans have been embellished and distressed in every way possible this season, from embroidery and beading to prints, prints and more prints. Mix and match a pair of extravagant jeans with a basic jersey t-shirt and a loud lipstick for a fun take.
Try: Vero Moda Floral denim Jean £23
DON'T be afraid to experiment
It's common knowledge that a low rise bootcut is the most universally flattering cut, but in my experience, the 'average' woman is harder to define by the day. If bootcut works for you, that's great, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't at least try a new silhouette this season - you never know, you might fall in love with a pair of cute ankle grazers or a tailored pair of high waisted jeans.
Try: Topshop MOTO Blue Jamie Jeans £40
DO invest in a pair of boyfriend jeans
This season the boyfriend jean has come back with a stylish vengeance after being discarded as, well, a bit of a 90's fad. Coveted by the fashionistas in the know, roll up to the ankle and team with a laid-back knit, statement necklace and ankle boots for an off duty cool look.

DO wear jeans any day, any time
Jeans have come a long way in the last decade - no longer reserved purely for daywear, there are plenty of pairs on the high street that will give your evening wardrobe a rocking boost. Introduce a sleek pair of coated black skinny jeans into your life and you'll never look back.
Try: Armani Jeans J18 Coated Skinny High-Rise Jeans £145
Today's must have nails one of the key trends you'll want to be wearing once the Autumn / Winter 2013 season kicks into fill swing. One to be worn with attitude, the classic red tartan print is set to be huge over the coming months filtering into your warm and cosy seasonal essentials. This skirt from Mango, is one of our favourite yet.
Mango Tartan Mini Skirt £34.99 >>
The ultra mini skirt is not for the feint hearted. Complete with full zipper down the front and twin pockets with zip fastening, this slim fitting number needs confidence to pull off. Style with contrasting denim as here at Mango, or layer up with leather and black knits come colder months.

Olivia Palermo remains a firm style favourite here at OSOBLOG HQ, and earlier this month this American fashion icon stepped out wearing an ultra affordable paisley print dress from ASOS. Complete with oversized red handbag, gold embellished belt and gold accessories, Olivia wore this wearable piece with her usual amount of fashion flair and style.
ASOS Skater Dress In Paisley Print With Lace Up Sleeve £40 >>
The dress, which is made from a delicate sheer chiffon fabric, features all over red paisley print on a light pink base. With a fitted high waist, cut out sleeve with lace up detail and soft swing pleats, the dress has a bohemian feel to it but still feels new and fresh. If you're looking for a last minute dress buy to see off the last of the summer in style, we think this could be for you, and Olivia does too.
