Primark is the new Prada

Primark is the new Prada – 2016 Autumn Edition

Primark has stepped up its game. There is no two ways about it, the quality of the items is just so much better than it used to be. For the past year or so I would steer clear of Primark as its garments would just never last. T-shirts would fade after two wears and would inevitably end up with holes in them within a week. I came to the conclusion that despite the low price it wasn’t worth buying the same clothes all the time. More recently however, Primark has improved the quality of its clothes as so I will resume my purchasing.

I saw YouTube videos from the likes of Zoella and Fabulous Hannah showing all of their new clothes from Primark. It seemed like the autumn collection was actually pretty decent. So of course I checked it out for myself and picked up a few bits and managed to put together a nice autumnal outfit. Not sure if its just me, but i did think that the prices had also increased. This can only mean one of two things. Either the inflation of the pound, or Primark is paying its workers a better wage and I can only hope its the latter.

I picked up a plaid shirt and a burgundy pinafore which I think is the epitome of autumn. To add to this, I paired it with a Topshop choker and some shoes from Tesco. I know Tesco wouldn’t be an immediate association with fashion but they do have some beautiful pieces. The rest of this post will largely be images of the outfit I put together and it costs no more than around £30.
