Primark’s gorgeous new collection has got us (almost) wishing away those long summer days.
Autumn/Winter is set to be a real fashion feast of rich earthy tones, playful textures and fun seperates. And Primark has hit it out of the ball park with this latest offering.
With the ’70s fashion love-in set to go nowhere in a hurry, Primark’s AW15 range includes an eclectic mix of some of the biggest nods to the trend.
The SS15 boho staple, the suede A-line mini skirt, has been given new length. One of Primark’s hottest pieces on offer is a maxi suede-feel tan skirt, with button features all of the way down to the ankle. Offering true versatility, you’re free to unbutton and play around with patterned tights, knee length socks or even thigh boots, depending on the weather or occasion.
The iconic pussy-bow blouse has also been given a monochrome makeover, and the shaggy coat is here to stay for those colder climates. Hoorah.
We’re also loving the deep berry vintage-style dress, which plays on the Victorian themes seen on the catwalks of McQueen and Givenchy.
And it seems that our favourite high street hotspot hasn’t just been looking to the catwalks for inspiration. Some of our favourite celebrity street stylistas could totally be seen rocking these luxe-looking buys. With ’60s vibe lace and vintage-style animal print, these hot-off-the-rack buys could easily be seen hanging in Alexa Chung and Suki Waterhouse’s wardrobes.
All in all, the collection feels rather grown-up, while ticking off the season’s key trends. And, naturally, you simply cannot argue with the price points, with the accessories starting from just £7.
The collection will be available in stores from August. So get those shopping lists at the ready, and we’ll race you to the till.
We’re sure these lustworthy buys won’t be around for long.
