I know legit none of us want to think about autumn because woo barbecues and frozen cocktails and coral pedicures and sunburnt noses so I just wanna give a girl a head’s up and say none of the stuff I’m about to show you is particularly y’know, scary.
There’s no faux fur coats or snow boots or chunky knit dresses, it all looks like it *could* be available in Primark now, except nah, you’ve got to wait a few months for these gems.
Things to report: ALL of the embroidery. Embroidery on denim jackets, leather jackets, shirts, jeans, skirt and bodies.
As in those things with poppers underneath that are a pain in the sweet behind when you’ve had one too many glasses of house wine, not as in, y’know, bodies.
Anyway, here’s my fave pieces from the new Primark collection. I don’t have prices or exact dates for it hitting stores, but I’d guess between August and October. Keep yo’ eyes peeled.
- THE EMBROIDERED BOMBER
Sweet mumma have mercy. Unless you deleted Instagram in a rage of internet comparison, you’ll have seen that the humble bomber jacket is very much the cover-up of choice right now. I *might* even have one sat in a bag on my floor just waiting for me to have a surge of wardrobe confidence. But this pink one? It’s the dream. Mostly because it’s still so feminine you won’t accidentally get confused for one of Billy Mitchell’s mates.
2. HIGH NECK BLOUSE
Picture this with skinny jeans, a dark red lip, your hair in a messy updo and a pair of leopard print boots. I’m just going to walk away and leave you with that vision. See ya, bye.
Every weekend outfit in September = done.
3. GLOVE SHOES
I’ve been teetering on the edge of buying into this trend for a while but I just wasn’t sure if I’d look like a right daft dingbat. I love the idea of a glove shoe, they’re supposed to be mega comfy and look at that seriously wearable heel saying hey hun, I’m going to make your legs look cute and toned and not give you blisters.
Those silver ones with rolled up boyfriend jeans though <3
4. EMBROIDERED MIDI DRESS
Um if you have an autumn or winter wedding to go to then sweet diggity you need this dress. More money to spend on accessories and overpriced make-up. Am I right, am I right?
I adore this dress and will absolutely be hunting it out – along with a super pair of spanx because lol gotta look like I’ve got curves in all the right places.
5. EMBROIDERED DENIM SHIRT
I love me a denim shirt because they’re megz easy to throw on with a pair of black skinny jeans, or tuck into a leather skirt or y’know, do anything with. And this one wins because not only does it have a cute frayed hem but it has little heartbreaker embroidery all over it. Not that y’know, I’ve ever actually broken anyone’s heart but sure thang whatever.
6. LEOPARD BAG
Some people like little black dresses, other people are obsessed with buying jeans, and my one joy in love is bloody cross body bags. HELP ME.
But this one. It has leopard, it has chain detail, it’s a decent size and hey look you can use it in two different ways – across the body using the strap, or held by the chain. Babin’.
7. STRIPED TEE
How stupidly cute is this?
Imagine it with a little choker, your biker jacket and jeans. Boom. Best pretending you’re not hungover outfit ever.
8. EMBROIDERED DENIM JACKET
This might be my fave out of the lot. I just need it now. Mostly to wear with tanned legs and little white dresses. I love the combo of embroidery, studs, glowers, tigers and slogans. Such a hun.
9. COLD SHOULDER TOP
I’m not sure you can really see from the picture, but this boo actually has little off the shoulder sleeves. It’s also a little bit cropped, so it’ll look slammin’ with high-waisted jeans. Also, how dreamy is the dusky pink shade?
10. EMBROIDERED SKIRT
An update on the classic button up skirt that’s been doing the rounds for the past season or two, is this pretty little thing with floral embroidery on the sides. And y’know what’s nice? This will genuinely look just as lovely with black tights as it will bare legs. Hurrah for warmth.
11. EMBROIDERED BODY
Given this is a bit of a shit photo, but bear with me because I think this simple black body will actually be super flattering and create a really nice silhouette. Wear underneath jeans and then boom, who’s this hot mumma? (Although not sure how my boobs would cope in it – would they fall down to my knees?)
What’s your fave piece?
