Winter is slowly drawing to a close which means our wardrobes are due an influx of pastel shades fit for spring.
The seasonal transition can be tricky when it comes to fashion but there are lots of options out there to make styling for spring easier.
Primark thought they had the answer with their most recent Instagram post, shared to their 9.2 million followers.
However, some fans took issue with one item in the look, leaving shoppers divided.
The high street store captioned the post: “Pastels? For winter? Outfit prices from £15/€20 #Primark #ootd.”
The post shows a pleated, cream coloured skit alongside a floral jumper.
The knitwear has yellow and pink flowers on it and draped over the top is a pastel green quilted jacket.
Primark’s snap received over 18,000 likes and fans took to the comments to share their thoughts on the look.
Some loved the fashion inspiration.
One wrote: “So pretty,” while another simply called it: “Cute.”
Others “love” the clothes featured in the image, with one writing: “Very cute this look.”
However, the jumper which one fan called “gorgeous” divided fans in the comments.
One happy shopper wrote: “I love this wee jumper. The outfits just screams spring.”
Other comments were not so positive, suggesting it looked dated.
A commenter wrote: “That was my grandma style and she passed 30 years ago.”
Primark replied to this stating: “Good fashion is timeless.”
Another said: “1970s granny uk look …lol,” to which Primark retorted: “Granny looks rock!”
