Calling all 'preganistas!'

River Island is about to launch its stylish, chic and trend-focused maternity collection, which looks so good you’ll want to snap it up even if you aren’t pregnant!


Gone are the days of shapeless smocks in drab colours and tacky t-shirts with ‘Bun in the oven’ motifs.

It seems ‘fashionistas’ are so last season and it’s all about the ‘preganista,’ if this collection is anything to go by.

The maternity range embraces your changing body, rocking easy-to-wear silhouettes in the form of achingly trendy separates and punk chic inspired embellishments.

Dress your bump with attitude with sequin harem pants, wet-look leggings (which come complete with secret, elasticated panels), sateen jumpsuits and shift dresses with dart detailing around the bump, oozing ‘preganista’ cool.

Stylish cover-ups include hot pink coats and luxe leopard faux fur gilets. And let’s not forget the River denim maternity jeans and distressed hobnail boots to finish off the look.

Prices start at £19.99 and the full collection will be available on the River Island website from September 1.

Move over Nicole Richie!


All that sparkles

Shine on with these sequinned harem pants teamed with loose jersey cardigan and a hooded knit. Wear it with attitude and don't forget the ruby red Dorothy shoes.


Rock on!

Team this black jumpsuit with a shaggy faux fur gilet, lashing of jewels and fringed shoe-boots. Accessorise with fingerless gloves and a rich purple clutch for maximum impact.


Animal instinct

Combine a monochrome animal print jersey with sparkly woollen tights and you have yourself a winning combo. Chuck on a sequinned waist coat and hobnail boots to polish off the look.
