When I say the words River Island you might think of all things glam, however recently the brand has been shifting its aesthetic towards a more pared-back look. It is now establishing itself as a go-to for everyday staples with a fashion edge, and it is the selection of jackets and coats that I’ve been most impressed by. The River Island Studio line is one of our favourite places on the high street for elevated, but interesting design, with more directional silhouettes.
We love the whole edit, however there were are jackets and coats in particular that really stood our to our team, and so myself and Shopping Editor Joy had to try them on in real life. There’s the most amazing checked borg coat, a green quilted boxy jacket which is yo-yoing in and out of stock and an oversized blazer that looks so expensive.
