Normally with look books there seems to be a common theme where you can pick out the trends. Not all the pieces are to your liking but there is a theme running through them. I just got my hands on the River Island lookbook for AW12 and I have to say, I am pretty blown away by it. I can't pick out the trends here but what I can see so far - are genuinely lovely pieces and some real show stoppers.
Like this dress.......gorgeous!
There are some 80s pieces and a good bit of tartan running through the collection in the form of blouses, trousers and jackets. I must say, I love the idea of tartan trousers for winter....must be my inner fifteen year old punk! This is the same inner punk who makes sure I always have one black lipstick in my collection at all times......
I couldn't narrow down my choices as there were so many gorgeous pieces that I really want. I could have made this blog post twice as long but I limited myself. I love the skirt below. I like the idea of teaming it with a black vest and a leather jacket. I seem to have a 'thing' for maxi skirts and they are incredibly flattering....
Quite a few pairs of hot pants in the collection too..... The only thing I will say about hot pants like this is choose your tights carefully. I cant stand seeing the gusset line on tights when women wear hot pants like these. It drives me nuts. I only wear patterned tights with mine so there isn't a line. Mind you, mine are plain black though. I can see myself buying the patterned gold ones above. I love them.
There is also a selection of blouses in everything from clashing prints, to black, to sheer, florals and tartan...in fact, check out the tartan blouse. How cool!?!??!
