From H&M Studio to Whistles Limited Edition, I've always been a fan of high-street premium lines as, more often than not, they really do come up trumps for both quality and design. This summer it was the turn of River Island and its Studio collection which, while relatively new to the scene, has previously received rave reviews from fashion insiders. Well, this season is no different, with the brand offering up a seriously chic edit of expensive-looking summer staples. But there is one dress, in particular, that I have to tell you about.
I was lucky enough to be sent one of the collection's oversized smock dresses to try on IRL, and I have to say, it didn't disappoint. Coming in a beautiful shade of rust, the dress features dramatic voluminous balloon sleeves, a wrap style front and an equally roomy skirt, which falls to the calf (I'm roughly 5'7" FYI). I'm wearing a size 8 in the photos, and it's fair to say that the fit is very oversized, so you might want to size down. The dress also comes in a beautiful grassy green shade—and both colours are now on sale. Scroll down to see and shop the dress and see the rest of River Island's Studio collection.
