Topshop or YSL?

High street fashion has done it again, using designer duds as inspiration for their own more affordable, yet no less fashion-forward, lines. This time our beloved Topshop has created the Splatter Top – their own version of the Yves St Laurent Paint Splattered Tank. Although my budget dictates that I nearly always go High Street instead of high-end, in this case if money were of no concern I’d opt for the latter.
The YSL piece has a better colour balance with its mixture of yellow, blue, red and purple, and splatters understated enough to make this top office-appropriate.
The Topshop version is much darker (with grey, gold, black and red splashes) and is more inspired by the hipster/grunge look with a tunic-like silhouette. Regardless of the route you choose; be careful when creating your outfit as each piece strays dangerously close to the fashions of the 80s…there is a reason why certain fashion elements from that decade have been forgotten for a reason.
Ultimately, each top brings something different to the table; the YSL option is sophisticate with an edge while theTopshop piece is casual and grungy.
If you’re a fan of the bright primaries of the YSL tank and want something that is just as edgy with a higher glam factor, try the YSL Paint Splatter Dress. You’ll look more abstract art than messy artist!

thank you 



  1. Just run through your blog!It's very nice I'm following you!
    check out mine I'd love your opinion!


  2. I love the YSL version more. The material is richer (expected) I love the cut on it, looks more flattering and Id rather go high end than high street on this one ,I agree.

    The Ysl version is just very appealing. more warmth and splatter to it. Topshop version has less.

  3. I agree, I prefer the YSL one, I think it's just annoying when a high street, such as Toppers, COMPLETELY steals a designer piece. :(
    Great blog, now following!


  4. Wow, the YSL paint splatter dress is just freaking amazing!!

  5. I like the topshop version better. It is more cool and casual. Dont like the V-neck and the lenght on YSL (I usually like V-neck, but not on this design).

  6. omg! i love these so much! i wanna make my own now! haha!

  7. Definitely I choose the ysl splatter dress! As it looks more attractive than the topshop one.
