Sainsbury's fantastic Tu clothing range is full of brilliant bargains.
There's now much more to tempt us than delicious food and drink at the local supermarket. Sainsbury's Tu clothing has become our go-to shopping destination for trend-led, well-made pieces that are always greeted with amazed expressions when we reveal our stylish separates were bought alongside the weekly shop.
Wedding season can be expensive, not to mention the smattering of family BBQs and the odd race day, all of which seem to require a brand new outfit. But luckily for us, Tu clothing have some great outfit options at incredibly low prices.
"Tu clothing goes much further than you would expect supermarket fashion to," senior fashion writer at w&h, Jessica Beech, told us. "With a number of stylish pieces that could easily be mistaken for more expensive brands." Harriet Walker, fashion editor at The Times, agrees. On maternity leave, she found swapping the FW at Paris and Milan fashion week for the checkout aisle, there were still plenty on fashion finds to be had. "Supermarkets have a captive audience for their fashion ranges - shoppers are already in situ and ready to spend. But a lot of their popularity comes from the 'you'll never guess where I got this' factor. People love picking up fun clothes alongside their weekly shop. Anything to make the check-out queues more colourful!" she told woman&home.
"Tu is good at nodding to current trends without going over-board. For me, the best pieces there are easy to wear but have a bit of colour or some extra detailing that makes them feel fun."
Tu clothing: which are the best pieces?
There are some amazing finds to be had, including items starting at as little as £9 (yes, really!) Read on for our favourites...
Stuck for something to wear to the final barbecues and parties of the summer? Tu have got you covered with this retro inspired floral midi dress, £22. With a tie belt and elasticated waist and sleeves, this dress is the loose-fitting yet flattering piece your summer wardrobe needs.
There's nothing worse than shopping for basic accessories, only to find they've all got sky-high prices! Luckily, Tu are selling this gorgeous black belt for a mere £4 - that's less than a glass of wine!
Utility jumpsuits aren't just for mechanics! This band-on-trend navy blue version, £28, nips you in at the waist, creating a flattering feminine shape, and can be dressed up or down, depending on your mood.
As temperatures begin to drop, it's time to get your hands on a stylish coat before they get snapped up towards the end of the year. This classic white and black herringbone coat, £38, will see you through the colder months.
Khaki is here to stay for autumn 2019. Start filling your wardrobe with gorgeous green delights, like this Schiffli lace top, £18.
For a piece that functions whether you're at work or at play, then this stylish khaki wide leg wrapjumpsuit, priced at £16.50, is a must-have for your wardrobe.
A classic leather jacket is a staple for any woman's wardrobe. If you're bored of the typical black version, try this elegant stone jacket selling for only £69!
It's official, polka dots are back! Add the playful print to your workwear with this gorgeous black and white pleat print top, available in sizes 8 to 26. And priced at just £9 (yes, really), you won't find a much better bargain.
This gingham belted skirtis a winner, priced at just £15. Wear yours with flats for a cute daytime look, or dress up with understated heels for a summer party.
Want to a light summer jacket that you can also layer up on cooler nights? Look no further than this navy lightweight hooded jacket, priced at £26.25.
We're big fans of these easy-to-slip on neon/nude mules, on sale for just £7.50. A great nod to the colour-block trend!
However, if you're planning on picking up a few bargains, it's wise to bear in mind that sizes are selling out very fast on the Tu clothing website. So if you want an item in your size, don't hesitate!
Will you be treating yourself to some end-of-the-month shopping?
