River Island is one of the UK’s major High Street retailers.
Normally it isn’t my cup of tea but this oriental puff print skirt really caught my eye.
It is a really stretchy black material with a white puff print in an oriental pattern.
I bought the skirt in a UK size 8 direct from River Island, and, to be honest it was a bit of a squeeze over my derriere but once it was on it was a good fit. It sits snug to the waist to create a cracking silhouette and a nice hourglass figure. The print is also really different to the other baroque/oriental designs out there at the moment.
I have teamed this skirt with a crisp white shirt and a black belt but it could work with a red vest top, strapless white top, black bandeau top and lots more, it really does have endless possibilities.
The only thing I would say is that definitely go down a size to get a good smooth effect but it can get a bit hot in it!
I wore this to my friend’s gig in a sweaty club and it was a little bit ahem, uncomfortable.
But I have to say I DO LOVE this skirt! It really is different and definitely creates a gorgeous shape.
