Oh Primark, how you love to tease us. It may only be the beginning of March, but the high street style institution has only gone and dropped its high-summer collection already, and we’ve bagged a sneaky first look.
With festival and holiday season just around the corner (come on, it’s not that far off and we need something look forward to) the Woodstock-inspired collection is just the ticket for an outfit overhaul. There’s fringing, embroidery, a 70s colour palette plus the shoe of the season- knee-high gladiator flats. Believe us when we say these are definitely going to be a ‘thing’!
Worried about the beachy vibe? Don’t be. The boho printed separates will look ace layered with denim right now, and we could totally see that swishy tassel skirt working with tights, chunky boots and an oversized knit. Anyway, fashion folk are always investing in the best new pieces months in advance, so this is the perfect excuse to get your wardrobe up to scratch before summer comes. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to book a holiday!
Here’s what our editors are coveting!
Gemma Gow, Deputy Fashion News Editor:
“I’ll be wearing these tailored shorts with tights and a slouchy knit right now, but come summer I’ll pair them with a tucked-in tee and flat sandals. They’re the perfect transitional piece.”
Lucy Wood, Head of Fashion News:
“I love the embossed detail on this cross-body bag. It’s the perfect every day arm candy, but will also be one of my festival staples. Plus, its western vibes are bang on trend. It’s basically a no-brainer, then!” Tip: These lace-up heels have a real designer vibe. Wear with your skinny jeans and a silky tee for a winning after-dark look.”
