By Sophie Buchan

Primark shoppers have been going crazy over more of the chain's trends - and this time it's a bit more nostalgic.

Uploading the new look to social media, Primark said the blazer and skirt outfit was the "perfect combo" - and it wasn't long before fans flooded the comment section with hundreds tagging their friends asking to rush down to the store before it sells out.

Taking to Instagram where the post has gained over 70,000 likes, one said that the outfit reminded them of "Princess Di" whilst another commented "I loved this look in the 80's...still do."

They weren't the only ones to think about the past with many more commenting they were also taken back to the past.

A third added: "Pretty sure I wore an outfit like this in 1989...how the cycle of fashion turns. Looks good though."

A fourth then sent in a photo of Clueless and asked for more colours of the outfit to match the iconic 90s film.

The blazer and shirt combo are now available in stores with the skirt costing just £8 and the blazer costing £23.

The trendy outfit comes as Primark launched their new range as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month comprising of bras and nightwear which will see them donate £250,000 to cancer charities in each of their markets around the globe with the aim to support education, awareness and research of Breast Cancer through their commitment, which is completely separate from their own sales.

The bargain chain took to social media and said: "Our new collection of post surgery bras offers both affordable and accessible options that are comfortable and stylish.

"With softness at every seam, our designs are specialised to be functional and adaptable to different needs providing maximum comfort and confidence.

"Choose from options with front zip closures for ease of fastening or soft seal hook and eye combos at the back for no more discomfort."

They added: "While we can’t solve the problem, we want to make the daily lives of women affected by breast cancer that little bit easier at all stages of treatment and recovery, as well as promoting the importance of preventative measures such as checking yourself. We’re stronger together, so join us in showing solidarity for those affected by breast cancer."
