Season’s Greetings! With the holidays just around the corner, I’ve partnered with Topman and the Hudson’s Bay to bring you some holiday style and cheer. And what better way to prepare for the season than with a personal shopping appointment? Last week, I visited Topman at Hudon’s Bay Queen Street for a little personal shopping session with Topshop/Topman personal shopper, Jessica. She helped me find some great pieces for all my holiday events ahead and it was so fun to have someone to offer a second opinion! Oh and did you know that personal shopping appointments at Topshop/Topman are free? You should definitely take advantage, if you haven’t already.
Here’s a shot from inside the Topshop/Topman personal shopping suite, where I began choosing my top picks:
It was a really tough choice, but with Jessica’s help, I narrowed down my top picks.
Starting with a genuine suede bomber jacket (1) – a favorite silhouette of mine and a versatile piece that’s appropriate year round. Secondly, I found a new denim shirt (2), light in both weight and wash. During the winter months, a scarf is a must. This black and white plaid scarf (3) is super soft, cozy and chic. For the casual brunches, I picked up a pair of stretch skinny jeans (4). They’re fitted, but also offer a good stretch. A ‘must’ to accommodate for all the holiday eating.
There are so many amazing sweaters at Topman right now and choosing was hard, so I picked two (5&6)! You’ll notice the cream colored inside out jersey sweatshirt in my outfit in the photos below.
Last but not least, I picked out a pair of plaid pants (7). Aside from being classically chic in black and white, these cropped pants have a great fit and will definitely be a holiday staple in my wardrobe.
If you’re looking for great gift ideas for the man/men in your life, I definitely recommend all or any of these items!
Putting together a few of my holiday picks, I created this outfit below, completed by a fantastic, wool overcoat (similar here) that Jessica helped me find during our shopping appointment at the Hudson’s Bay Queen Street store. To capture the holiday mood, I went down to the Christmas Market in Toronto’s Distillery District to snap the look. Certainly festive!
Be sure visit your nearest Topman to try out their complimentary personal shopping service and shop my holiday gift picks in store and at thebay.com.
