Primark have managed to make the impending winter season seem far more exciting thanks to the release of its latest must-have buy – a  £25 shearling jacket. The stunning design, which was unveiled on the store's Instagram page, features a faux fur lining, zipped pockets, and stands out in a powder pink-hue. It also looks remarkably similar to Acne's now sold-out Lamb Shearling Jacket, which retailed at a far more purse-pinching £2,120.24.

Primark's shearling jacket has been dubbed the 'must-have jacket'

Unsurprisingly, the new jacket went down a treat with shoppers, receiving over 60,000 likes in just three days. Many took to the comments section to compliment the design, while others were desperate to get their hands on one. "My God I need this," one fan wrote, while another said: "So pretty I need."

Primark are often impressing fans with its designer-inspired range. In August, the store released another £25 jacket, this time replicating Barbour's £229 waxed jacket. The design features a high neck collar, studded waist belt, front pockets and metallic buttons, complete with a wax-look finish, and comes in both khaki and black.  

The high street store has been causing quite the storm on social media of late. As soon as a new item is released on Instagram, fans around the world flock to the comments section, desperate to get their hands on the latest must-have piece, which have also included glitzy Minnie Mouse heels costing just  £14, and a Harry Potter homeware and merchandise range.

As we have revealed previously however, the best store to shop in is Primark's Tottenham Court Road branch. Placed conveniently in the heart of central London, the flagship store opened back in 2012 – and is built over three buildings. The impressively large shop boasts four floors rammed with the latest stock, including limited edition lines, a LED lift wall showcasing the latest campaigns and even a café – an ideal spot to congregate mid-shop for a caffeine fix.
