Valentine’s Day Fashion: River Island

River Island also has some very striking pieces in their current collection. Veer away from they typical Hallmark colours and try something more vibrant. River Island offer a variety of hues from red and pink to orange and lilac. Sexy cut out dress, plenty of peplum, zips and studs and lace feature among the vast variety of clothes for interesting Valentine’s outfits.

There are many lovely dresses to choose from. Firstly the Cap Sleeve Cocoon Dress, a cute and figure-hugging cocoon dress that features cap sleeves, a rounded low back and back zip. It’s cinched in at the waist, and the cocoon shaped skirt gives for a playful attitude. The orange hue is vibrant and perfect to team with black or cream accessories. Available in Orange only.

For a seductive number, choose River Island’s Cut Out Skater Dress – the sexy cut out dress that never fails. This updated skater dress features cut out panels at the top, with its hems creating a figure pleasing shape and finishing with soft pleats on the skirt. Its orangey-red hue is perfect to differ from the typical colours this year Valentine’s Day. Available in Red (orangey-red) only.

Another stunner is the Lace Print Shirt Dress, an ultra feminine frock, in coral pink. The lace print is almost better than actual lace, as it won’t catch on everything and fray.

One of their tops I recommend are the Scuba Zip Bralet. A crop top with cut outs and a revealing back zip, it can be easily worn with your favourite wax coated or leather jeans, or simply your best skinny black jeans. Statement jewellery and high heels are a must for the perfect sexy outfit. It’s available in Red or Black, and part of the ‘RI Loves’ selection.

How about a bold and bright biker jacket? Snatch the Contrast Trim Biker Jacket in Coral Orange finished with black trims and zips. Playful and right on-trend for this spring. It can be worn over pastel and neutral shades, with contrasting black accessories. But be quick, they’re selling out fast.

And if you prefer to pretty in a pastel, pick up the Coral Light Biker Jacket in Peach. It’s very much a spring jacket, and features black exposed zip fastenings, long sleeves and shoulder tabs.
