River Island for grown ups

River Island is aimed at a younger market than me.

This season though they have a cracker collection. They have interpreted the tricky trends of the season into a lot of wearable pieces.

I went “window shopping” online at River Island today. There are quite a few things that I would buy. My favourites below.


This mustard jacket has great detailing and a good sized collar:

A really nice, flattering LBD:

A classy nod to the mixed pattern trend in a grown up bag shape:

I do like this version of the white vest trend. The buckle detail and deep neckline really make it work for me.

Long tanks are a wardrobe staple for me, thanks to my wide shoulders and solid middle.

The 70’s are back! This denim skirt is a flattering nod to the trend.

This handbag would work well with a 70s look.

It’s worth having at least one pair of shoes in the “flesh coloured” neighbourhood – pink or brown or cream. Sometimes it looks weird to have shoes in dark or eye catching colours, especially in summer.

Money saved by not buying these is over $600.
