Primark is a cheap clothing store for those who have always thought that thing like designer jeans and six times the price of what an item is worth for a label is ridiculous.
The women's dresses however, look cheap and garish. For some reason, NEON, is currently in and you can find traffic light worthy colours splashed around the tops, trousers and even the underwear. I don't know about you, but I don't particularly like attracting that much attention.
Oh and the shoes are ugly! Really ugly! One thing I cannot stand is a store that manages to have an ugly shoe range.
The clothes are so cheap that you could probably put an outfit together for around £25, but whether or not that outfit would look any good is shudder worthy.
Whether buying these cheap clothes is worth it is the subject of much speculation. If you like the idea of disposable clothing and are fickle enough to discard clothes with every change in season then Primark is probably for you. However if you want your clothes to last a decent duration of time and not have to worry about multiple loose threads and splitting seams... then look elsewhere.
After attempting to buy dressy clothes for going out and finding them slowly disintegrate on me; I personally end up going in, hating most of the styles and colours on display and choosing a few casual tops to wear while lounging around the house.
Primark stores are littered around everywhere and there are always more store openings on the horizon. Looks like I shall be haunted by neon clothing for a while.
Summary: Cheap and dispoisable clothing
