The whole country might be isolating at the moment but there are some workers who can still head out to their jobs.

And The One Show host Alex Jones definitely isn’t taking for granted being able to escape the house and wear something other than leggings and a jumper as she heads out to her day job.

The BBC presenter always brings her fabulous style to the screen as she presents the daily evening talk show – and yesterday was no different.

On what was widely regarded as the first day of spring after the clocks jumped forward one hour on Sunday, meaning longer days and lighter evenings, Alex made sure to get into the spring and summer spirit with her stylish outfit.

The popular host teamed a stylish pair of raw cropped blue straight leg jeans from Oasis with a pair of glam leopard prints boots with gold buckles from high-street favourite Boden.

However, it was the star’s shirt that stole the show.

Alex wore a gorgeous white embroidered blouse from Spanish brand Mango to give a lovely relaxed summery spring feel to the outfit.

Unfortunately, the springtime blouse was so popular with shoppers that it has already sold out.

However, clever Mango have a few other options that are similar enough to get us all through the summer months – even if it just for a back garden date.

Alex recently revealed how, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, she is unable to work with her usual beauty teams.

"We can't have any makeup artists anymore and it breaks my heart because after nearly a decade, our team of girls are very close friends and this is a game-changer for them financially,” she revealed on her Instagram story.

Admitting that she is “terrible at doing makeup,” Alex added, “we'll be reunited soon and my face will be so grateful!"

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
