A great mix of trend-led styles and River Island’s sexy signature at great prices.
With probably one of the best selections of aviator jackets in the young fashion category, River Island offers at least three options. Leather and faux fur also feature on outerwear, while long, body-con skirts are in tune with the retailer’s more sexy proposition. A bright red prom dress with huge ruffles and a gold brocade dress also stand out, while basics are given extra detail via studding and beading.
Before walking into River Island, the customer knows what to expect from a great window: aviator jackets, leopard print, lace and faux-fur coats. Despite the store being large, each section is clearly visible from the entrance. The store is tidy and staff are helpful.
Young fashion shoppers would be hard pushed to find a better version of Burberry’s aviator jacket at low prices outside River Island, whose design comes in at £59.99. The leather version is pricier at £140 but is butter soft in texture and colour, while the faux-fur coat at £89.99 is one of the softest in town. Casual jersey tops start from £9.99, leopard-print harem pants are £29.99 and wool-mix tapered girly trousers £39.99. A shift dress with twisted bows on the collar is great value at £39.99.
