High Street Pick Of The Week

Our editor in chief went out to grab lunch the other day and arrived back at the office with these fabulous pair of trousers from River Island. We all fell in love with them and made her try them on and model them for us.

These undoubtedly are Laundry’s fashion pick of the week!

They are super on trend, red is such a bold fun statement colour to play with right now. We always think of red for autumn/winter, so it is a refreshing change to wear it in the summer. These trousers are a bright shade of red, they just look like summer!


Wide leg stripes, high waisted elastic that pull you in at the waist to create a perfect shape and great length for the legs. The model wearing them for River Island is tall so they sit above her shoes (above left) but our editor is small and so they come right down over her (very appropriately and coincidentally worn that day) red wedges (above right). So if you are small and think you can’t get away with wide legged trousers, buy high waisted and wear high wedges. They will look fabulous!

We’ve got the footwear sorted, now what to wear on top?! A plain white t-shirt is the obvious choice as you can’t go wrong and with such a statement trouser, plain always works best. They also work well with a smart blouse tied at the waist, a crop top, as long as it shows off the intended waist. We also played around with a few alternatives and they look gorgeous with a navy t-shirt.

These amazing pair of red stripe wide trousers are new in from River Island so snatch them up quick.
