While loungewear on winter walks was once appropriate, now alfresco gatherings are on the cards, it’s time to look for inspiration for your next #ootd.
And luckily, you can find it while picking up your next food shop. Gone are the days of supermarkets being exclusively reserved for sustenance, with the likes of Asda and Aldi really outdoing themselves of late.
The latest spring-ready range from George at Asda is full of things you’d expect to find at some of the more expensive high street brands – namely & Other Stories.
As for its most recent drop, we expect a similar positive reaction since each piece looks far more high end than the price tags suggest.
So, to help you get ready for spring and summer socialising, we’ve rounded up our favourite styles. From jumpsuits to wrap dresses, these pieces prove that affordable, supermarket clothing is anything but dowdy.
You can trust our independent round-ups. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing and expert advice. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.
George at Asda blush pink short sleeve shirred blouse: £12.50, Asda.com
With its shirred body and peplum hem, this short-sleeve blouse is a great way to dress up a pair of black straight-leg jeans (£35.99, Mango.com) thanks to its slightly satin-look fabric. This top wouldn’t look out of place at & Other Stories.
George at Asda black polka dot print wrap dress: £14, Asda.com
This dress looks similar to the one Holly Willoughby recently wore on air while presenting This Morning. As prints go, polka dots transcend trends and are a mainstay for every season. With a slight puff sleeve and floaty design, it’s an ideal dress for spring and looks far more expensive than its £14 price tag.
George at Asda red tropical floral print front jumpsuit: £18, Asda.com
Featuring a cut-out detail and twisted knot front, this jumpsuit is giving us real summer-holiday vibes (and while trips abroad remain uncertain, we’re here for it). With an elasticated waistband and a wide-leg trouser cut, this looks like it’ll be a comfortable yet stylish addition to your wardrobe.
George at Asda lilac scallop trim cardigan: £14, Asda.com
While the sun may be shining, don’t be deceived – it’s best to go out with a lightweight layer, having a cardigan on hand. This lilac number features a pretty scallop trim and resembles Kate Middleton’s Boden scallop hem jumper. Wear over a satin midi dress (£28, Asos.com) for your next trip out out.
George at Asda navy abstract print poplin mini dress: £14, Asda.com
For when the summer weather really arrives you’ll want a mini dress on hand – and this one is a great option thanks to its lightweight fabric. Made from 100 per cent cotton, it’s likely to keep you nice and cool on a warm day.
George at Asda yellow tiered boho midi dress: £18, Asda.com
Looking for a bright coloured dress to blow away the lockdown blues? Enter this flowy, yellow maxi with a self-tie fastening at the back that will cinch you in and accentuate your waistline. Wear with a pair of white trainers for your next outing.
George at Asda red gingham tiered midi dress: £18, Asda.com
No longer a twee, peppy print associated with a picnic blanket, gingham has had a much-needed update and we’re here for it. If you’re looking to tap into the trend, this red midi is the dress to do it with. We’d finish the look off with a pair of white strappy sandals (£85, Stories.com). For more ways to wear the print, read our guide to the best gingham clothing pieces.
