At first it was sad to see Borders close shop, but when affable UK-based clothing company Topshop (and Topman) moved into the abandoned space this fall, the store paired well with the other Mag Mile foreign fast-fashion fixture H&M. Merchandise ranges from the affordable jumper to the expensive jacket with their inventory constantly being updated in their stores and online. With store locations only in New York City, the United Kingdom and now Chicago, suddenly Topshop makes the Windy City seem very cosmopolitan chic.
