One of the greatest things about the clothing sections that now appear in most supermarkets is the sheer convenience of being able to pick up an outfit as you do the weekly shop. If you need something quickly, or suddenly discover you need a certain colour t-shirt or cardigan, there is no longer a need to pay a visit to the High Street, you can simply throw whatever you need in the trolley with your bread, milk and pasta.
Tu clothing, the range available in Sainsbury’s supermarkets, is a brand that always impresses, both with the variety of styles on offer, and the quality of the pieces. The season’s collection has been of a particularly High Standard and has featured heavily in fashion magazines. I have already reviewed one of the dresses from the collection in a previous post that you can read here, and now I’m going to turn my attention to the second dress that the lovely people at Sainsbury’s sent me.
The Tiger dipped hem dress is described as a ‘laidback’ type of dress, and I couldn’t agree more. This is the sort of soft, easy to wear dress that can be worn casually with sandal or flat pumps, or dressed up with strappy heels. The style is loose and stretchy, which makes it a really comfortable piece to wear, making it the perfect dress for hot days and summer holidays.
I wore this dress for going out to dinner and then for a few drinks and found it to be comfortable as well as looking attractive. It also got positive comments from the people I was with, which is always a nice bonus.
I have been really impressed with the quality of the ladies clothing on offer at Sainsbury’s, along with the pretty affordable price points. But Sainsbury’s Tu actually offers good value clothing for all the family. I often stock up on things for my five-year old Joe when doing a shop, and was delighted when Tu sent Joe a couple of pieces to add to his holiday wardrobe too.
We were sent a lovely pair of denim shorts in size 5 years for Joe. These had a thick, elasticated waistband, perfect for independent little boys who like to go to the toilet by themselves, but struggle with buttons and zips. The waistband was a little wide on Joe, who admittedly has a tiny waistband, but not enough for the shorts to fall down, and the length was perfect. These are what I would call a smart pair of shorts, nice for evenings out on holiday. Of course, they would also be fine teamed with a t-shirt for everyday wear, but I loved them worn with the smart cotton shirt we were also sent.
The shirt was a lovely grown up design in cotton, it featured an unusual rolled sleeve detail and was a button through style. Like all Tu pieces, both the shorts and the shirt have washed really well, and I have no doubt Joe will get lots of wear from both pieces.
