Primark A/W 2013: My Top Picks

Hi everyone!

I checked out, once again, the Look Magazine Primark preview of the autumn/winter 2013 collection and this time instead of creating outfits like I did with the spring/summer collection, I decided to show you my favourite pieces from the collection. 

I may not be able to wear some of these pieces due to my size or shape but I still wanted to show you guys because I still loved the pieces! 

Here we go...I hope you enjoy!!


I will start off with something that will be of great use as the weather gets colder and of course this piece has to be amazing because you will be wearing it a lot and it keeps you warm and dry! Well, most of the time! I am starting with JACKETS, if you hadn't already guessed! 

I loved this aztec print, leather trimmed jacket mainly because of it's Chanel inspired look. I love the shape and the pattern of this coat and I believe it would be perfect for a dinner over a plain dress or as a jacket for work. Going into a PGCE in 4 days I think this will be a pretty perfect piece to jazz up a placement outfit.
 I adore this mac coat, or any mac coats in general so when I saw this I knew I had to include it. I love the beige, neutral colour as it will go with many different outfit collaborations, however I have seen my sisters buying the red version which is perfect for adding a pop of colour and vibrancy to plain outfits. 
 Next I chose this gorgeous faux fur coat as I have been lusting for one for ages and think this is amazing. I love the leopard print and the massive collar because I can just envision being so warm and cosy during the snow falling winter months. 
 I liked the clash of styles with this coat. The sports luxe effect with the cuffed sleeves and the everyday casualness of the duffel front makes this coat incredibly versatile to mix and match with an array of outfit combinations. 
 Finally for coats, I love this tartan biker style jacket with leatherette sleeves. I am a sucker for both tartan and biker jackets so when I saw this I literally fell in love. I know, once this hits the shelves, I will need to go and buy it!!
Next I will show you the accessories I have chosen. There are only three because in all honesty I was not impressed at all by the accessory selection this season!

The first piece is this gorgeous, simple gold coloured twisted chain necklace. I think this will add something different to an otherwise plain outfit without being too over the top. 

Next, this handbag is perfect for those with a lot to carry because of work or study commitments. The berry colour on the sides is perfect for transitioning into the autumn and winter seasons. There is two handles so you can choose whichever you prefer, for me it is the long strap I like to use. 
 The third and final accessory piece is this stunning tartan scarf. As previously mentioned, I love tartan and this scarf really reminded me of being a little girl and borrowing a scarf my grandma used to have so this is perfect for adding sentimentality to an outfit.

Next up are dresses, tops and skirts!

Another tartan piece! Yes, of course there is. Tartan and checked patterns are massive for this upcoming season so perfect for me. I love the colour of this blouse and the bow tie at the neck adding a little girlie element to the piece.
 This top is perfect for work or dressing up smarter for education. The colours and material combination are perfect for carrying you into the autumn season. 
 I could never, ever get away with wearing this next piece but I still absolutely love it. Dungaree's have been massive for the summer season and are continuing to be a massive part of 2013 trends. I think they are adorable and remind me of being a kid myself. 
I can't wear these shorts, well I think I can't but I love them! The distressed, faded, left side (or right side if your wearing them!) mixed with the tartan is amazing! I'm in love!!!
 This piece is very plain but can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion or event. The colour and simplicity of this piece is what made me pick it as a favourite. 
 This next piece is again very plain and simple but has a little bit of added something in the form of sheer fabric panels on the front above the chest area. I think this will, again, be so perfect for dressing up or down and for use in the office or education institutions.
 I like this next piece as a casual working outfit. I can envision this piece being worn while your hard away at work at home paired with some sweatpants. 
 Yet another tartan item. This time, a dress! I absolutely love this piece its super cute and adorable. The cap sleeves and the bow is the cutest thing I have ever seen. I love this so much, the colours will take you right into winter and paired with tights and boots this will look gorgeous!

Yet another tartan item, which again is one I cannot wear due to my size and shape but I think paaired with a plain top these would look amazing!  

My second to last tartan item is this tartan shirt. I love the colouring of this shirt and think it's subtle masculinity will add a little something to any smart or casual outfit. 
 Finally, on the tartan front, this tartan skirt is super cute to wear with a thick knit jumper and some knee high socks I think it would look uber cute even with boots and a plain top. It's something every girl should have in their wardrobe. 
 For the final piece in this post and probably my favourite, this plain white t-shirt with black faux leather details on the sleeves and collar is my best pick out of all these I have shown you today. I think it would look so nice with many outfits and can be used as a very versatile piece to add to your wardrobe. This is definitely something I will be picking up myself when it hits stores.
I hope you have enjoyed this post.

  4. Thank you all so much. I don't have a very fashion savvy mind so to be told I have taste makes me very happy.
    Primark is one of my favourite places however on looking at some of the prices I was like oh dear. £20 for a bag? £24 for shoes? I'm not in New Look! haha

    Thank you again!
