If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I was lucky enough to get the chance to attend the preview of the launch of Ivy Park at Topshop Oxford Circus last night. As the event got closer and closer, I got more excited! I went from 0 to 100 in about 5 minutes of entering the building!
It’s currently coming up to midnight before the launch so I thought I would share my immediate thoughts with you before you shop, especially surrounding how the Ivy Park sizing came up and share a little about the pieces I picked out for myself.
Number 1. There Will Be More…
Firstly, lemme tell you that there is a Season 2. So have no fear, there will be more!
…But this season is mainly monochrome with pops of my favourite electric blue and a blush pink. There are a lot of pieces in the range but this means there is basically something for everyone. Everyone.

Number 2. Ivy Park Pricing
As you can see, everything is pretty reasonably priced, or dare I say, affordable! The most expensive pieces are in the reflective range. I didn’t get a chance to look at them properly on the night but if you’re used to shopping in lululemon or Sweaty Betty the prices won’t put you off!
Number 3. Ivy Park Sizing
The sizing is pretty true to size. I purchased a small in everything except the deep armhole tank which I got in an XS. So I’d say a small would fit a UK 10 perfectly. The tank was super roomy and I preferred the way it looked when I sized down as I plan to actually work out in it!

Number 4. It’s Kinda Fashion…
Another need to know is that the line is not all functional. It is also a fashion line. As I basically live in “athleisure”, that really doesn’t bother me. It’s nice to separate my sports wardrobe into “stuff I exercise in” and “stuff I don’t exercise in” even if at the end of the day it’s all sports wear 😉 …have you seen the most recent sequinned skirt in the collection?! Sequins are not just for Christmas!!
Number 5. Get Your Discount
And as if the prices aren’t reasonable enough already, you can shop with your regular discount at ASOS i.e student discount for an extra 10% off your bill! Yup!!
If you do purchase any pieces from the range tag me on Instagram (@ellelinton) so I can see what you chose and how you rock it!
What do you think of the Ivy Park range so far?!
