(Jacket: Primark; Shirt dress and trousers: Cos; Shoes: ASOS; Bag: Baia; Watch: Michael Kors)
Once the preserve of the Saturday morning teenage pocket money whip-round, Primark has morphed in my twenties to a goldmine of staple statement pieces. Their bedding section is a treasure chest to the willing and patient shopper and every season their womenswear (and, I'm sure, menswear section) offers up a few choice pieces. heroes that see you through many an outfit dilemma. Last summer it was classic basic utility-style jumpsuits and long plain duster coats, this season it's these bright jackets. Available in a wide range of colours as well as black and white, with pockets and a drapey loose fit perfect for summer evenings. Get thee down and stock thee up.
