Style fans are racing to Primark to snap up Balenciaga mini dress dupe – it looks almost identical but is £1.4k cheaper | The Sun

ON the lookout for the perfect dress for all the festive activities ahead? Then retailer Primark has answered all your prayers with their new Balenciaga mini frock dupe.

According to Bristol Live, Primark's new ruched side mini dress  is a close match to the posh Balenciaga’s crepe mini dress that sells for an eye-watering £1,550.

Unlike the real deal by the high-end brand – which last year found itself in a paedo scandal – Primark's dupe costs £14, saving you more than a whopping £1.4k.

The elegant frock, which comes with ruched detailing on the side, cuts just above the middle of your thighs and can be dressed either up or down.

For a more festive look when attending all the Christmas parties ahead, fashionistas can style it with sheer tights, sexy heels and fun accessories.

The mini dress is also perfect for a more casual fit and we reckon it would look great with basic trainers or a pair of black boots, such as the cult favourite Dr. Martens.

One downside to note, however, is that the cute winter staple is only available in sizes XXS to XL.

On Primark’s website, the product listing states: “This mini dress was designed to show off your glamorous side and turn heads with its timeless details!

''Featuring long sleeves, a crew neckline and mini length, this versatile piece is one you can take from day to night. Let’s talk about ruched design, shall we?

''Not only does it aim to be figure hugging and curve enhancing, but it also adds depth to your ensemble!''

''Pair it with trainers and a denim jacket for a relaxed vibe or heeled sandals and statement accessories to take this look to the dance floor! How will you be styling yours?''


In case you needed more convincing to race to the nearest Primark store this week, shoppers also have been raving about a £7 buy that will keep you warm this winter.

According to one shopper of the high-street retailer, the brand was now selling a Half Zip Fleece Jumper – and it doesn't cost a fortune.

The wardrobe must-have, which can also be ordered via their new Click & Collect scheme, comes in a range of colours and can be styled in various ways.

Money-saving style fanatics can snap up the £7 jumper in grey, cream, pink, green, blue, brown, as well as the classic shade – black.

The cosy piece of clothing, which runs in sizes XXS to XXL, is ideal for a winter holiday, a day of hiking or simply a more casual fit, and can be sported under your coat as an extra layer.

Urging others to not sleep on the deal, the customer, Libby Whitsey, took to TikTok where she said: ''Run, don't walk to Primark for their 1/2 zips.''

Hundreds of fellow style enthusiass were racing to comment, with one writing: ''This would be cute like oversized and unzipped.''

''I want them,'' a second chimed in, tagging their pal.
