Primark Womenswear AW16 Must Haves Amazing Value

7 things you NEED to know for AW16

The thing is, we can’t believe it’s AUGUST! But, while it may seem like the summer is running off quicker than an Olympic athlete, we’ll be the first ones to admit: we’re excited. Excited for dark mornings? Not quite. Excited for a new season to begin? Absolutely! With autumn lurching, our thoughts are turning to our AW16 wardrobe… 


This season we’ve compiled a wardrobe hit list to help you check off all the important trends every fashion-savvy chick needs to know come September.

Metallic skirt €14, marl jumper €6

Bomber jacket €8

Head-to-toe cosmetic shades  

We are obsessed with this look. It’s all about layering up similar shades to create a gorgeously monochromatic outfit. The powdery hues look positively angelic sitting together, so we like to contrast them with tough, sporty separates like bomber jackets, heavy knits, and joggers. If you want to keep the halo, incorporate fluid culottes and pleated skirts to extend the softness.

The parka 

Next up, we’re calling out the parka as your must-have cover-up for cooler temps. We’ve up-specced ours, introducing bold colours and removable imitation fur trims around delightfully cocooning hoods. For those of you looking to go down the classic route, we’ve got traditional khaki options too!

Metallic knitwear 

Ladies and gentleman, important news: metallics are here to stay. The latter quarter of the year signals shimmer and shine to the nth degree. From Bowie inspirations, to Studio 54 glam, there’ll be no shortage of metallic embracement. While we transition, keep things a little subtler with one of our gorgeous metallic knits. Available in a huge variety of silhouettes, you can even grab one of the season’s key pieces in metallic knit: the bomber jacket.

Long-line 

Another hit list hottie is the long-line silhouette. We’ve reimagined functional bomber jackets in longer lengths for extra coverage, and we’ve made sportswear even more inviting too – longline hoodies? The stuff of sports luxe dreams!

Jumpsuit €25

PJ Dressing

If there's one thing we can really get down with, it’s feeling perpetually comfortable while maintaining supreme chicness. Luckily for us, pyjama dressing does exactly that. We are SO into this loungewear-meets-apparel trend, it strikes the perfectly balance between #OOTD and #IWokeUpLikeThis! Slip into this beautiful look with fluid button front shirts with contrast piping, and louche trousers in matching fabrics or prints. For ultimate lazy fashionistas, this jumpsuit is basically a chic onesie!

Checked shirt  €9

Cold-shoulders

Yes, yes, we've already mentioned the importance of this peek-a-boo detail, but it isn’t going anywhere fast, so get yours while they’re still super hot products! With everything from chic dresses to sleek knitwear and formal shirts getting an attitude overhaul, dabbling in this trend won’t mean compromising on your personal style.

The checked shirt

Whether you sling it around your waist - grunge style - or wear it simply with jeans, the checked shirt's collegiate look and feel is one of next season's must-owns. Try wearing it underneath your fave pinafore for extra style cred.

If this selection of sartorial delights doesn’t sate your shopping desire, get some more inspo below and prepare to slay AW16 from the second the clocks go back.
