I was looking for some trending items from Primarks and had a very mixed experience – Hope Woolston

Primark is known for progressively producing fashion garments and accessories. So much so that many of her articles are trending online shortly after they are published.

From dresses to handbags, candles to hair accessories, so many of her Instagram posts get tens of thousands of likes and hundreds of comments. However, since Primark doesn’t sell online, it’s not as easy to see something you like and order it there and then.

You have to shop in-store at Primark, which can mean you miss out on some of the most popular products. We wanted to know how hard it was to get the trending products, so I went to my local store with a list of items I wanted to find.

First on my list was a pink and white plaid combo that gave me real Legally Blonde vibes. The blazer and skirt set was hugely popular on Instagram with nearly 25,000 likes.

Paired with a pink handbag, this set combines smart office attire with a fun, girly color palette. My search got off to a great start as I spotted the jacket as soon as I walked through the door.

The jacket was available in several sizes and the handbag was also hanging nearby. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the skirt anywhere which was a real shame as they made such a lovely set.

Next on my list was a gorgeous ombre bikini that was posted on social media with a matching kimono. It had warm tones of red and orange and looked perfect for a summer vacation.

Unfortunately, despite searching the entire swimwear section, I couldn’t find it anywhere. I found some of the other bikinis shared on Instagram but not the one I wanted.

The swimwear department had quite a few different colors on offer, but I couldn’t even find anything that matched the bikini I wanted. The kimono was nowhere to be seen either.

Staying on topic of summer vacation, I searched for the colorful strappy sandals that got more than 20,000 likes. Priced at just £6 and available in a variety of bright shades, they looked like the perfect beach shoes.

Primark clearly noticed which products were popular as the sandals were displayed at the front of the shoe section. There was good stock in all three colors with a range of sizes. Many people have taken a look and put them in their baskets.

Another outfit that has garnered a lot of attention is a pajama set, which many people say they’ve worn outside the home. Featuring a beautiful blue and white print, this three-piece set can be purchased individually.

With nearly 18,000 likes on Instagram, fans of this set said the robe makes a perfect dress or beach cover up too, while others said it’s “too pretty” to just wear indoors. I went to the loungewear and pajamas department to see if I could find them.

It was really easy to spot with such a bold pattern. It wasn’t prominently displayed like some of the other trending items, but once you’re in the right department it’s easy to find.

As an accessory lover and a 90’s kid, I fell in love with these hair clips the moment I saw them. Their bright and colorful design with cute little details makes them the perfect summer hair accessory.

I wasn’t quite sure where to find these clips, so I searched several departments. I started with the jewelry but had no luck, moved on to the hair accessories and again they weren’t there.

I also looked in the summer section to see where the sunglasses were but I couldn’t find them anywhere. I managed to find hair clips that were quite similar but not the exact ones.

The day I went shopping was actually the day Stacey Solomon’s new Primark Kids collection launched so naturally I had to see if I could find it in store. Of course I did and it was right in the middle of the store, everyone who buys something has to go somewhere.

I’d seen some of the items teased on Stacey’s Instagram and they looked gorgeous, but I was amazed to see just how large the range actually is. In addition to summer clothing, there are also shoes, hats, funny plates, mugs and more.

The collection was also very popular on Primark’s Instagram with more than 20,000 likes. I couldn’t resist buying a little Hawian shirt for my godson.

The Stitch Waffle Maker

Finally, the last thing I was looking for was one of the latest trending homeware items, the Stitch Waffle Maker. Part of Primark’s ever expanding Disney range, this gadget allows you to prepare delicious waffles featuring the adorable character’s face.

I ventured upstairs to the home section to look for this and there were only a few left on the shelf. Priced at £22, it has proved very popular online.

On Instagram, it had over 68,000 likes and more than 4,5000 comments, so I was really surprised to find some in the store.
