As most of you will probably know by now, for years River Island has been my ultimate favourite high-street retail chain. I have always managed to find a thing (or two) that I've wanted at least every month, and this A/W '14 season has been no exception. From chunky cowl necks, tartan prints and cosy knitwear, River Island have been on point yet again this year, and this particular wishlist is just a narrowed down list from this month! I believe there's something to suit everyone's tastes, from basics to prints, to varied textures and accessories....
GREY SNAKE CONTRAST TOTE BAG - £45
As soon as I set eyes on this bag I feel in love with it. Clean slate grey with a dash of snake print (which may I add, seems to be everywhere lately). It's perfect to match with pretty much any outfit, and it's great how it has multiple-sized compartments and an detachable strap. You can see it here.
RED BLOCK HEEL CHELSEA BOOTS - £60
You can never really go wrong with a pair of Chelsea boots. But instead of going for the usual black, I really like these dark red/burgundy looking ones that are patent. I find that patent brogues and boots are really 'in' at the moment, and they would look perfect with a pair of skinny jeans and some leather. See them here.
GREY MOHAIR COWL NECK KNITTED JUMPER - £30
This looks like the cosiest thing ever. Perfect for creating those luxe-esque layers and giving you endless opportunities to style it up just to minimal, effortless look. Cowl and polo necks are also making a huge comeback this season, so be sure to grab yourself one! See this one here.
GREY KNITTED SWING TOP - £25
I think I'm loving the grey a little bit too much?! However, this grey knitted swing top is one of the staples that you're always going to need in your wardrobe just to easily throw on with any outfit. See it here.
GREEN CHECK HIGH WAISTED SHORTS - £30
Now these, are definitely at the top of my to-buy list. I very nearly bought them last time I was in the shop (I so wish I did now!) I tell you no word of a lie, these khaki-coloured high-waisted shorts are the most flattering shorts EVER. They fit my body shape perfectly, they look stylish and are bang on trend right now with the tartan print. Also, for the £30 price-tag they're an absolute steal. See them here.
DARK RED OVERSIZED FEDORA HAT - £28
I've mentioned this pretty fedora in many wishlist posts and I've still yet to purchase it! See it here.
BLACK OVERDRESS PRINT TUNIC - £24
Last but not least, is this simplistic yet effective tunic print dress. This is such a wise wardrobe investment, as you can just throw it on with pretty much anything. Just merely looking at it I can think of numerous ways to style it up, think tartan shirts, fur gilets and knee-high boots. But that's just my thoughts, the possibilities are endless. I do also love a good statement printed text! See it here.
