Blouse – River Island Chelsea Girl
Skirt – H&M
Earrings – Accessorize
Let me take you back 46 years when the name on high street was Chelsea Girl, championing a heritage and vintage spirit, encapsulating geometric-inflected prints, wispy fabrics and sinuous shapes. The popular boutique took a lead on the high street with a fusion of fashion and popular culture; bringing together a discernibly bohemian aesthetic that captured the Chelsea Girl mystique. In 1988, Chelsea Girl evolved into the chain we all know and love today…River Island, and after all these years, the iconic pieces that defined Chelsea Girl are making a comeback!
The new Chelsea Girl SS11 collection, with a unique 21st century twist, has now been released in River Island, and with a lower price point than mainline items, it feels like a ‘little sister’ to River Island. It mirrors the infamous bohemian styles that made Chelsea girl so fabled. Floaty fabrics, sumptuous suedes and floral prints are all present, making it a really desirable collection perfect for the summer season.
To celebrate the launch of the Chelsea Girl collection, River Island and Cosmopolitan have teamed up, and from April 1st, are offering fans the chance to become a stylist for the day.
It is a really amazing opportunity and all you have to do is…

Build an outfit around the Chelsea Girl Item of the Week (this week is the blouse I wear above)
Each week, the creator of the most individual outfit will win £200 River Island vouchers.
An overall winner will be selected at the end of the four weeks who will get to style a fashion shoot in London, all expenses paid! This will then be featured online at Cosmopolitan and River Island.
I love this range as it completely reflects the style of clothing I like to wear, especially over the Summer, perfect for park life and festival fun. I think my blouse has been really rather popular as it is currently out of stock and not featured on the website, but hopefully it will be making a return, so keep your eyes peeled.
I’d love to know if you plan to enter this fabulous competition, and also what your thoughts are on the new Chelsea Girl collection.
