Pattern and Texture at River Island...

River Island is known for bringing their own unique twists to fashion's key seasonal trends and this AW11 does not dissapoint. With an array of patterns, touch-me textures and interesting detail, River Island is standing out from the high street with these special pieces I have picked from their new arrival collection online:


I have a huge attraction to fringing this year - whether it was during the Summer season with a bohemian vibe or this Winter to channel Navajo. This beautiful kimono has an ethereal feel and could be teamed with skinny denim, a maxi skirt or even a playful dress for ultra style!

 I haven't seen a coat like this on the high street before - the detailing is impeccable. From the leather buckes and edging, woollen oversized collar and unique pattern, you will be sure to stand out from the crowd. The perfect winter coat to snuggle up under!

 Marc Jacobs had spots all over the catwalk which the retail world has gone wild for this season! Not only is the turquoiuse colour very 'now', the spot detailing gives an unusual twist on the every day jean.

Jumpsuits have been a wardrobe staple for sometime now but I am loving the jewel colouring on this one from River Island. Add a pair of killer gold heels and a statement necklace with a fur gilet for true 70's style.
 Leopard is a reccurring print in the fashion world - done wrong you can look like Bet Lynch, done right you can work the pavement like a catwalk! I am lusting after these special boots! I'll be wearing them with an LBD and let the boots do the talking as well as the walking.....
Being a boho girl at heart I could not resist choosing this shawl! I love the clashing of the prints, the mixed textures of the material and the effortlessly chic edge it would give to any outfit - I want this now!!

Happy Shopping
