New In at River Island Plus

There’s not always a lot to look forward to in January (well except for my birthday in my case) but overall it’s a pretty crummy month – we’ve already been writing about how to get through January, so take a look if you feel the same. My way of getting through the month is to occupy myself by looking at pretty new clothes and there’s usually a lot of them around once all the sales are over.

Of course I was straight on River Island to check out the new additions to their plus size range and needless to say all my birthday money was pretty much spent up. I narrowed my favourites to these top 5:

River Island Plus

1 Black Embroidered Cold Shoulder Top £35

I first laid eyes on this top at the Curve Fashion Festival and have been stalking the site for it to arrive! The core range version has been available for a while so when this finally dropped mid December I ordered it straight away! I’d say it was true to size, but the Cami it comes with was super short so I had to use my own to ensure it met my trousers.

2. Black Knit Embroidered Jumper £45

I love embroidery on pretty much anything so this beautiful jumper caught my eye straight away. I love the bright blanket stitch embroidery, and of course it’s my favourite non-colour, black. I showed it to my husband who often isn’t a fan of really trendy things but he loved it too – winner all round.


3. Metallic Pink Mesh T Shirt £24

I was super excited to see they’d added this to the plus range, as I’d bought the purple version from the core range as I liked it so much. It’s fab for wearing over a Cami or with just a bra for a more daring look.


4.Camo Faux Fur Trim Jacket £65

I love a bit of faux fur and I love how casual this is but the faux fur just makes it ‘extra’, you know?! I believe I would wear this alllll the time however the fact I have about ten coats means I won’t be able to buy this one anytime soon!

5. Plus Black floral embroidered maxi dress £70

How cute is this v-neck, sleeveless winter floral maxi!?
