As Summer is nearly here (cold weather, please go away) so is the new plus size range from River Island – and you will not be disappointed.

River Island Plus is donning trends just as fab as any range with lots of aztec prints, coral and peachy hues as well as super slick night-time dresses.

Here, we pick our fave looks and what we think is going to be major this Spring/Summer:

Date night 

If you really want to be fun and flirty on a night out – this dress is for you. It cinches in at the waist to show off your curves and as well as that, the slip underneath cuts off above the knees, giving the look a really sexy feel.


Shopping with the girls 

Aztec print is very in this season and this two piece is one of the best we've seen. You'll be covered up enough on those chilly winter evenings, yet the bright print is really chilled and laid back for a day of shopping with friends.


Work wear at its best

No clue what to wear to the office when the weather heats up? This is perfect. There's enough coverage yet it's light and crisp so you won't be sweltering in your warm office. Happy days, ladies.


Wedding outfit 

How gorgeous is this dress? We're totally in love. It has an array of colours in it too so it's easy to mix and match with accessories. You'll be the best dressed wedding guest.

River Island plus is available for store order now. 



While they might not have nabbed a seat at Sunday's Oscars, the Irish contingent have been out in force in LA this week for some seriously glam pre-parties.

One of the most hotly anticipated events on the pre-Oscars calendar is the Oscar Wilde party, hosted for the fifth year in a row by JJ Abrams at his Bad Robot studios in Santa Monica.

Among the invited guests this year were Sarah Greene, James Corden, Snow Patrol, Lenny Abrahamson and the ever-stylish Amy Huberman, who wowed in a sleek white jumpsuit.

Looking at the snaps of Amy in her plunge-necked, wide leg ensemble, you'd be forgiven for thinking she had dropped thousands on her outfit, but it is in fact from a VERY budget-friendly Irish retailer.

Yup, the jumpsuit is an SS16 offering from Lennon Courtney, stocked exclusively at Dunnes Stores.

Brendan Courtney and Sonya Lennon's label has made quite a name for itself with sleek, colour-blocked pieces that offer a different silhouette from what Dunnes shoppers may be used to.

"Hey @lennoncourtney your jumpsuit has been tried and tested and it totally works, thank you!" Amy wrote on Instagram, also tagging her footwear collection, Bourbon.

The actress wasn't the only attendee who was repping Irish designers.

Singer Roisin O looked stunning in a silver suit from Roz Purcell's Scribe By Roz collection from House of Fraser:

And Xposé's Glenda Gilson nabbed this sheer dress straight off Paul Costelloe's London Fashion Week AW16 catwalk:

We love seeing Irish designers getting some international coverage – keep it up, ladies.



While we love our cosy jumpers and knitted hats, the recent weather has brought us all down a tad and made us wish it was spring or summer again.

Well, that's how Penneys made us feel with its latest Snapchat posts. The clothing store snapped all of its fab upcoming pieces that will be available next year, and we have to say, we're in love. 

From very slick and sophisticated suits, to flower-power cushions and AH-MAZING accessories, Penneys will certainly be the place to go next spring (as always!).

Sunnies heaven right here – now all we need is the sun:

We already have our eyes on a few key pieces but what we're really loving this time around is the homewares range.

Comfy cushions, colourful blankets and adorable mugs… our houses will look better than we will next year.

The cushion above is a must-have for every women's bedroom, right?

Nobody can turn down a little bit of inspiration every morning!

We cannot WAIT for this stuff to hit stores.



Many of us opt for a cat-eye on nights out and for the weekday, a quick flick is the way to go.

But next season's runways saw many eye liner styles that are chic yet really easy to pull off day to day.

So, whether you're going to Sunday brunch, a girls night out or simply just going to work, there's a new liner style for that:

Leave it down under as seen at Issa SS16 


Smudge it like at Thierry Mugler SS16


Keep it in the crease seen at Fendi SS16


Go with colour like at Dries van Noten SS16


Bring on the glitter as seen at Pucci SS16



Zayn Malik wasn’t the only former boy band member in attendance as Valentino unveiled their Spring Summer 2016 menswear collection in Paris on Wednesday.

Joe Jonas was also at the event, although he didn’t cause quite as much chaos with his fans outside the show.

The Italian brand described Zayn as “front row ready” on their Instagram page as he sported a smart knee-length jacket over a crisp white shirt and dress pants. The ex-One Direction star paired the fashionable look with his now bleached blonde hair.

Both Zayn and Joe were lucky enough to be sitting front row at the event and looked quite the street style icons as Joe chose a bold print for the major fashion occasion.
