River Island is always my go-to high street store when it comes to finding evening or party wear. I just love the pieces they come up with, whether it’s a pretty, detailed top, a figure-hugging dress or a killer pari of heels. They’re so unique and chic, and I find that their clothes are such a brilliant fit for my body type; having quite a small waist and a bigger booty means I sometimes struggle to find clothes that accommodate to both, either having to squeeze my butt in or having to wear a belt, but River Island always seem to get it right. So when I knew I was heading out for food and a few too many (okay, waaaay too many) drinks on the weekend, it was River Island I turned to for an outfit.
I opted for this gorgeous nude lace bra-let with skinny straps, and teamed it with an A-Line black leather skirt and some strappy heels, which I actually received from Boohoo.com* for a collaboration I did a little while ago. Nude and black together is definitely my favourite combo. It’s just so easy to wear and always leaves me feeling sophisticated and sleek.
The detailed crop is one of my favourite pieces. I’ve worn it a few times now, once with jeans and some strappy heels for a night out with my course mates, and even with some denim shorts and flats whilst on holiday. It’s so pretty and I feel it brings an edge to any outfit. I have a similar crop top in white and there is also a black version of this top available if you’re not sure about rocking the nude.
As for this beaut black leather skirt, I’ve had it for years and wear it for all occasions. It could be for a night out with the girls, for a day of shopping, or for work. It’s probably the most versatile piece of clothing I have and I never get tired of it. It does get a little sweaty in the summer time, not gonna lie, but I do bloody love it.
What’s your go-to high street store?
Lots of love,
