Hi guys! So it's been a while since I've done a wish-list based post, and I wanted to do one purely because of all the Autumn/Winter ranges that are starting to slowly hit the shops. Now, don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Summer and I am in no way wishing it away - but I can't help but get excited for winter clothes and new trends! After all, the weather in Britain isn't always so fabulous, some of these particular items you can even get away with wearing now. Also - it had to be from my favourite high-street store - River Island. I've had my eye on plenty of new arrivals these past few weeks, so I thought why not share them with you all....
BLACK CHECK OVER-SIZED COAT
River Island's answer to this years must-have winter coat. I love the boyfriend style that it still going strong from last year, and the black check monochrome look will be sticking around for quite some time. It's perfect for A/W, as it will pretty much go with everything in your wardrobe, and it will spruce up something basic to something stylish and trendy. You can see it here for £80.00.
WHITE FASHION IS WHAT YOU BUY T-SHIRT
A girl's always going to need a classic statement tee lying in her wardrobe, and this one's no exception. Great to wear with a pair of black skinny jeans or a print skirt/shorts with tights - the possibilities are endless. It features a crew neck, turned up sleeves and is an over-sized fit. See it here for just £16.00.
BLACK AND WHITE DOG-TOOTH SHORTS
Now, I'm MASSIVELY loving the dog-tooth (otherwise known as hounds-tooth) trend right now, it's print and it's monochrome-based - what else can you ask for?! With a high-waisted fit, it's sure to look flattering on any body shape. See it here for £30.00.
DARK GREEN LEGGINGS
For some reason, I just really enjoy wearing the dark green colour during the colder winter months, it suits my skin-tone and just generally looks good. Leggings are leggings, you can wear them with dresses, skirts, or over-sized t-shirts to go for that casual, off-duty look. See them here for £22.00.
BLACK BLOCK HEEL ANKLE BOOTS
It wouldn't truly be an Autumn/Winter wishlist without the essential winter boots now, would it? I'm obsessing over these block-heeled ankle boots, they're not too high that would make them unsuitable for everyday use, but they're not too short of an heel that they don't make much of a statement either. It's the perfect mid-heel, it's a block which makes it comfortable, and the gold buckle on the side really finishes it off with the stylish statement. See them here for £65.00 - a true investment.
BLACK COLOUR BLOCK MESH INSERT T-SHIRT DRESS
I probably have far too much black/white items in my wardrobe, but this one will just have to be added anyway! I love the monochrome colour block it has going on, along with the dash of asymmetric mesh - it has a very cool '90s vibe to it. You can see it here for £40.00.
TAN FAUX FUR COLLAR BIKER JACKEt
I'm in need of a new leather jacket, and instead of going for the typical black I wanted to go for the light brown one with a detachable fur collar, as it just looks a little more different and is more wearable for this time of year. See this gorgeous number here for £65.00.
What do you guys think to these A/W pieces from River Island?
Would you wear any of it?
As always, let me know!
Lots of love,
