HOW TO BREAK UP A TRACKSUIT: PART I

The new collection from Topshop Unique—the mega retailer's more elevated, higher-priced offshoot—just launched today, and we're already in love. With cool outerwear pieces and amazing shoes, the collection is an instant hit.

It's common practice for designers to expand into new categories in order to build a lifestyle around a brand, which in turn offers consumers more options to shop.

Designer Ammara Yaqub's sharp focus is the result of her own struggles with finding the perfect shirt, whether for day, night, or a business casual wardrobe.

Outerwear with feline motifs is a total "cat-ch" for fall. Channel street-style stars Pernille Teisbaek and Miroslava Duma and spring for an animal-print coat that makes any outfit's perfect finishing touch. Add red accessories and sleek boots for good measure.
