River Island High Summer Preview

Summer and clothes are always a good combination. Bright colours, crazy patterns, floaty material…so when River Island has a preview day celebrating all things summery, you don’t want to miss out!

To get us in the summer vibe, we were greeted with the perfect picnic experience; grass, Pimms (lots of it), manicures, Cath Kidston inspired napkins and an authentic Texan barbeque (thanks to the awesome people at Howard's Meat Co.)

The yummy food from Howard's Meat Co.

The collections on show for us were all stunning in their own unique way. White sheer, denim and lace screamed for a Miami getaway with big 3D flowers and stripes, while the loud tribal prints and beading on crop tops and kaftans made sure you wouldn’t blend into the crowd! Jeans were updated with shiny stripes and fringing accompanied big blooms for a boho vibe. Mules made an appearance, hinting they were the next shoe of the season. The men’s collection (as always in River Island) was just as appealing, with palm tree printed shirts, statement tops and board shorts. Don’t be too surprised if you find me in the men’s section this season! The Chelsea Girl range was made up of collar dresses, Clueless inspired checks and neon cutesy prints.

My particular faves were an embellished mesh twosie from the Pacha range and a navy and white fringe kimono that I’ll be looking out for when they hit store! 

What were your favourites? Are you excited for the new pieces coming in to River Island?
