A Sold-Out Coat Led Me to Rediscover This Classic High-Street Store Again

So many expensive-looking knits.

It might not be the first place you think of when planning your new-season shopping trip (well, for us, it wasn't), but over the last few weeks, River Island has been consistently cropping up on our fashion radar. Whether it's the vinyl trench coat that everyone's talking about (sadly, it's sold out) or its expensive-looking autumnal staples, this high-street store is really knocking it out of the park at the moment.

With temperatures dropping by the day, there's no better time to stock up on your cold-weather essentials, so we've created an edit of our favourite River Island new season pieces. At the top of our list is the brand's pink bobble-sleeved knit, a black leather shirt and its plentiful offering of statement coats (from checks to on-trend lilac). Its official: We've got a new high-street shopping crush.

Style Notes: Pink and white make for a fresh take on autumnal style. We love the addition of River Island's embellished mules.
