Every year, there is one High Street retailer who consistently “brings it” for Christmas and that retailer is River Island. You don’t even need to be a River Island girl to want to be on their Christmas list. Party-looks are essentially the same every year – sequins, lace, velvet, baubles and maybe an ironic Christmas jumper, but River Island just always ramps it up. Where other retailers offer Quality Street wrappers and dull sequins, River Island offers glam and vampy Bond-Girl attire.

From the gothic, beaded tassel-cape, to the killer rose-gold platforms, to the sultry, metallic black playsuit, it’s party-wear HEAVEN. They have an excellent Plus-Size range too, as well as some very sharp menswear if you fancy #twinning with your other half.

So go forth and sparkle, like the Christmas Princess you were born to be*.


Why Mr Ambassador, with these looks, you are really spoiling us.
