These are the three pieces I'll be hunting down when the Rihanna for River Island collection hits stores.

One of my favourite pieces from the range is the black maxi dress, it has a really cool 90s grunge look so it, with thin spaghetti straps and thigh high split.

I probably wouldn't have the gall to wear this bare-legged, but I think it'll look just as good with trusty black opaque tights and a pair of ankle boots to minimise the sexiness of the number.

Also catching my eye are these slim-legged jeans. River Island's denim offering has always impressed, and I'm loving the look of these high-waisted, worn-in jeans with turn-ups.

Finally, this little LBD (€55) has the look of a wardrobe stalwart all over it. It's the very number that Rihanna herself wore to the unveiling of her collection at London Fashion Week, and is backless with spaghetti straps holding it all together.

Rihanna for River Island will be released in selected River Island stores and online on March 5.
