Happy Fri-yay🌟 I hope you all have a fabulous weekend💕
The last few days I have been lusting over some absolutely fabulous winter pieces from the high street. To say River Island have got it in the bag yet again would be an understatement as their collection for Autumn/Winter is stunning!
Let’s face it, Ireland is going to be freezing as always so I thought I would focus solely on coats, capes and also the sleeveless jacket as they are making a huge appearance in most high street collections for winter.
Here are my favourite coats and capes from River Island which I think you will all love, also don’t hate me because I am showing you winter pieces!! I know we haven’t even got our summer yet🙈☺️
How STUNNING are these sleeveless trench jackets? They remind me of something Kim K would wear! I love the burnt orange colour which would be fab over a shirt or blouse. If you wanted to go for a more casual look, this over a long tee would work great. They come in at €100, but are a timeless piece to keep in your wardrobe to carry you through the changeable seasons.
I’m a sucker when it comes to light colours and pastel shades. Both types here carry a beautiful faux fur collar which is an added bonus if you ask me! Fur has become so popular for winter in the last few years and these two pieces are just perfect! The beige sleeveless gilet comes in at €65, which I don’t think is that bad for a beautiful piece, and the grey ribbed jacket comes in at €73.
Let’s just take a minute………….. How fab is this brown belted shearling jacket? I think it looks so expensive and cape like! This one comes in at €80, which I had to look at twice as I thought it would cost a hell of a lot more!! The black one beside it is also a bit of a bargain at €60 which again you wouldn’t think for such a sleek looking jacket. Both are belted, the black one being sleeveless.
I love both of these gilets. The first one being that little bit more daring and out there, the one to the right is more gentle in terms of its beige colour and overall appearance. The beige gilet is actually feathers, and does look quite fur like which comes in at €87. The brown faux fur gilet is that bit more expensive and comes in at €90!
I mentioned this grey half fur sleeveless jacket on my Instagram and Facebook page recently! I think it’s so smart, but also bang on trend. It comes in at a whopping €100, but I definitely think it’s worth the price tag! To the left is a great jersey longline sleeveless jacket which would be so simple to dress either up or down. It comes in at €73, but you could also purchase a less expensive faux fur collar and place it around the neck area to change up your look.
Love these two coats. You honestly can’t go wrong with black or black and white! Both pieces will work incredibly well whether it’s dressing a look up or down. The black and white one I noticed has just come back into stock so there has obviously been a huge demand for it – it comes in at €67 which is fantastic for a River Island coat! It also carries a beautiful faux leather look collar for that extra little effect. The black crombie coat comes in at €120 which is that little bit more pricey, but for a classic piece you couldn’t go wrong!
Cape loving!!! Check out these star buys. I have to say I am loving capes at the minute! I purchased one already and have it sitting ready to be worn! These two again are quite different in terms of price as to the right is a brown laser cut fringed suede one which comes in at €127 and the black faux suede leather look one which comes in at €55. Both I think are stunning, it just depends on what you want to spend on a piece.
I couldn’t leave without a little bit of leather! Just look at them!! A leather jacket is an essential piece to carry in your wardrobe!
Now I have to put my hands up and say there is a huge price difference between the two of these leather jackets. I honestly thought the one with the fur would come in a lot more pricier but I was wrong! Yes, one is 100% leather and the other a leather-look jacket!
To the right – a leather look jacket with a removable faux fur collar which comes in at €87
To the left – a fitted 100% leather biker jacket which comes in at €160 – but don’t let the price tag scare you as you will have a leather jacket forever!
So guys and gals, they are my fave picks from the River Island new season collection for winter. I hope you enjoyed a sneak peak at them!
All of the above items are available online at RiverIsland.com and I am sure will be appearing in your nearest store soon!
Stay Fab all,
