It might just be us, but summer clothes don’t have as much longevity year on year as winter ones. Also because in the UK our summers are short, winter items always seem like a much better investment. Therefore, Primark is a good shop to pick up some inexpensive summer items to update your summer wardrobe.

After scouring our local store, we wanted to share with you our Primark Summer Haul! Three simple outfits that are great for days home or away, and each one is affordable but stylish.

Outfit Number One

Stripes are ALWAYS a good idea! This dress is prefect for summer days and we’d wear this for lunch or to tour the local markets and towns. And these sandals are leather for only £8.00.

Outfit Number Two

Pom poms are really on trend and these shorts are comfy and a great buy! Throw them in your beach bag and they are a good cover up to pair with a swimsuit. Add a vest top and you have a simple day outfit.

Outfit Number Three

This dress works well to travel in, just add a denim jacket for the flight. This is also the perfect dress to wear now when the UK weather is unpredictable! Simply add a shirt or jacket and you have that vital extra layer when the sun isn’t shining.


This bag is gorgeous and looks far more expensive than it actually was – just £10! It is reminiscent of an Accessorize or Monsoon bag, but with a much smaller price tag! It’s just what you need for a holiday, as it is small and flat so will take up next to no space in your suitcase, but will give your evening outfits a really put together, classy vibe with a pop of colour!

We also picked up these simple sunnies! The sunglasses in Primark are inexpensive and still have the all important UV protection. They are ideal for the beach – keep your expensive ones for best and save them from getting covered in suncream, scratched or lost in the sea. For £2, you can just throw them away afterwards!
