5 Things River Island Is Getting Really Right

From key trends to everyday staples, we love knowing we can head to one destination to scratch all our sartorial itches. River Island is the high street name currently delivering on six key looks – whether it’s autumnal basics or new season must-haves you’re after, here are the pieces they’re nailing right now…

Ankle Boots

The white ankle boot trend shows no signs of waning this season, and fashion girls are stocking up on pastel shades too. River Island’s flattering shape cuts at the right place, features a comfy block heel and has the perfect not-too-pointy point, making it an affordable winner.

Block Colour Dresses

From Hermès to Pucci, satin block colour dresses are an AW18 must-have. Get the look for less in dramatic jewel colours or look to elegant oyster for a sophisticated spin; these statement pieces pack a punch, so just add barely-there sandals and glitzy earrings for a directional night-time look.

Cream Knits

If you’re anything like us, you’ll already be stockpiling cream knits in preparation for cooler temperatures. From chunky cardigans to button-detail designs, there’s something for everyone in this affordable mix; we’ve got our eyes on that ribbed style with fluted sleeves for easy transitional dressing.


From bikers to minis, leather season is officially on the horizon. You can never have too many pieces, so stock up on jackets, pencil skirts and more for a cool alternative to denim.

Evening Tops

Up the ante on the good old jeans-and-a-nice-top with this crop of designs; draped blouses and halternecks tick the traditional glamour boxes, but it’s pie-crust necklines and silky pink tees that are tempting us into more conservative evening dressing.
