For when you've to service the boiler at 2 pm but drinks at 3 pm...
From designer dupes to single-handedly creating the satin slip skirt trend, Topshop has proven that the high street offers a lot more than budget trends. Last year, the satin slip skirt became somewhat of a phenomenon with bloggers and the general public alike, losing its mind for the affordable must-have. Unsurprisingly, the skirt sold out in seconds leading Topshop to rerelease the skirt in multiple designs, which soon reached cult status.
Then, earlier this year, Topshop did it again as they launched their very first cult item of 2019: the floral Austin angel sleeve maxi. The dress is everything you could ever possibly want from an item of clothing thus it becoming an instant sell-out. It has flattering floaty sleeves, a slimming waistline, a keyhole back, stand-out prints and thigh-high leg splits.
So now, it's high time you met their latest cult item: the Phoenix playsuit. Tapping into SS19's utilitarian boilersuit trend but all the more appropriate for summer with a short silhouette, this romper is our new obsession. It dropped back in April but – you guessed it – sold out pretty quickly after.
So, it's high time you met the Phoenix playsuit. Tapping into SS19's utilitarian boilersuit trend but all the more appropriate for summer with a short silhouette, this baby is our new obsession. It dropped back in April but – you guessed it – sold out pretty quickly after.
Why so popular? You might ask. Well, a bit like the boilersuit, this one-piece is all kinds of laid-back cool, while still being super comfortable (it's even got a discreet elasticated waist, for bloated afternoons in beer gardens).
It also doesn't need much styling. You can style it with sandals on hot summer days. Style sandals on hot summer days like today, with trainers at festivals and with heeled mules and a '90s baguette bag after dark.
The Phoenix jumpsuit comes in three different colours including ecru and blue denim but the khaki has to be our favourite. And apparently everyone else's too as it is the shade that sold out the fastest.

It's so popular, in fact, Topshop has now released a petite version too for all the shorter gals out there.
But like most Topshop buys. you'll need to hurry because all three colourways are selling out quickly.
