The Only Trousers You Need This Autumn

Yes, I’m talking about the leather trouser. The standout autumnal piece which is all over the high street at the minute. But this post isn’t about any old pair of leather trousers, it’s a shout out to the new cult Uma Trousers from River Island.

I recently won a River Island Instagram competition which gave me the chance to have a RI Style Studio experience and a £100 voucher to spend. I took the opportunity to reunite with friends and take a trip to the RI Style Studio in Liverpool where we were greeted with prosecco and rails and rails of outfits, specifically put together with our styles, sizes and preferences in mind.

Before going, I naturally had a browse to see what kind of things I may like to try on and buy but only one item stood out as a must have for me…the Uma Trousers.

The paperbag waist and tapered leg makes them the perfect trouser for a day out shopping or even at the office, whilst the gold roller buckle adds an extra detail that takes them from day to night.

Of course, I bought them, styling them with this green roll neck cable jumper (which I also bought during the personal shopping experience) and a clash of different shades of snake print accessories for a tonal and textured autumn look. I also picked up this Gemini Star Sign Gold Necklace which was the perfect round gold necklace I’d been looking for.

I would 100% recommend booking in for a RI Style Studio experience. It was the perfect opportunity to try out new outfits I never would have thought to put together myself and see pieces I may not have noticed on the shop floor if I was shopping for myself. Plus, a private lounge area, your own changing rooms and endless prosecco…what more could a shopaholic want?!
