Gucci’s floral print trousers (on the left) are our way to nail summer florals without stepping out of our comfort zone, but with a hefty price tag that wouldn’t leave much change from a cheeky £1,000, we haven’t been able to splash out on them – sob.
Lucky then that River Island have come to our rescue with these gorgeous, almost-identical joggers (on the right), the comfy and stylish alternative to the Gucci pair.
At only £30, we think our bank balances might be slightly happier with these dreamy River Island trousers, plus, the slightly slouchier shape means we’ll be able to breathe out post-BBQ. What more could you want from your summer wardrobe really?
Team yours with strappy Nineties-style heels as favoured by Rihanna for an easy, weatherproof weekend look.
Who needs designer fashion when the high street is this insanely good?
