[this page serves as a reflection on 2011 items – it is no longer as timely as it once was]
Every year Primark features different collections of designer clothing, and 2011 is no different. With some of the hottest fashions of the year, this year brings some of the world’s hottest trends to the masses. Thanks to the affordable prices at the stores, people all across the UK can enjoy the best shirts, pants, skirts and more for just pennies on the dollar compared to other major retailers.
Last year saw some of the brand’s most adorable cardigans and especially accessories for women, but this year the mega-retail giant has uped their game. Taking cues from Europes top fashion houses, PM introduces a killer lineup for this year, and paves the way for another great one to follow.
Past Trends from 2011
Lined Jacquard Zip cardigans aren’t just for grown ups anymore, now the kids can get in on the latest craze. Being one of the hundreds of items 10 euros or less in the store, it’s no wonder why these are often out of stock in the store and unavailable to buy online.
Young girls can also get in on the action, with a similarly tiny Fairisle zip Cardigan for an equally-impressive ten euros. Bargains like this allow entire families to outfit themselves with new winter fashion and cold-appropriate clothing. Below are some of the newest additions to the 2011 lineup and collection.
Clothing for Women
Hero Knee High Riding Boots are perfect for wading through the ankle-deep snow on your way to work or the office. Black is the color to get, as it doesn’t show dirt whenever you slush over the sidewalks. Compliment these with your favorite tights or leggings and you have a bottom half to go with just about any top you can choose. Sweaters or turtle necks are a perfect match to these calf-hugging cuties.
A tomato red cable jumper is an adorable add-on to your closet. The high-waisted skirt in the picture sits well above the waist, which effectively slims down one’s body without making a fuss of it.
The footwear is hard to see here, but they are no doubt Primark’s very own shoes, which came in a variety of styles and sizes during the 2011 seasons. Heels at least two inches high occupy the bottoms of many of their shoes, and you should always expect to find at least a few fun colors such as bright purple or electric blue.

Some Ideas for Gentlemen
A fairlisle sweater and a quilted jacket are a great go-to combination for the guy wanting to stand out without having to break the bank. Equally at ease around a fireplace as it is a boardroom table, this particular sweater for men is a great weight for everyday wear.
The Primark website does not list any prices for this or any other product. It’s always a disappointing venture to explore the Primark store website, as you cannot order anything and you cannot see the prices for the things you wish you could buy.
If you’re looking to break the wind and shelter yourself from the sideways-blowing snows of London, this Duffle coat -named so for the unique latches across the front- is the perfect choice. The collar comes up high but not to high, providing a good deal of basic neck warmth while still allowing the wearer an opportuntity to sport their favorite scarf.
