High street preview: River Island womenswear, autumn 18

Add disco sparkle to a cosy heritage look for the top trends from River Island’s autumn 18 womenswear range.

Turn up the 1980s

The 1980s maintain a strong influence at River Island, where animal-patterned miniskirts with leopard spots and tiger stripes are contrasted with decadent chain prints and Versace-style golden fronds on sporty tracksuits.

Sequins (on a leopard-print suit, for example), fake fur, studs and patent take this extravagant trend even further over the top.


A warm heritage

Cosy wools and fluffy fake fur make for winter warmers with a heritage spin at River Island. Oversized tailored coats and brightly coloured checked suiting are the standout styles, while rich brocades, chunky knits, lace and velvet add to the look.

Dream jeans

Denim takes centre stage in the range as part of a streetwear-inspired 1990s look, and there are myriad reworkings of the classic blue jean. Embellished and emblazoned jeans, skirts and shirts, are accompanied by printed and patterned denim mixed with studs, jewels and River Island logos.
