In the interests of fairness – let’s look at Asda fashion

Following my recent post around Tesco I thought it only fair to have a look-see at Asda. Their terms aren’t quite so good, in that they don’t offer free delivery, but you can collect at no cost from a local store and return for free via Collect Plus. Both of these options work well for me in terms of locality, so it’s all good.

I would say, in comparison, that Asda clothes are cheaper than Tesco but that is reflected in the quality. There are some items that look fab online but bloody awful in real life (then again that goes for the majority of online shopping – it can be a real game of Russian roulette). That said, I’ve had a lot of great things from there over the years; most recently my waffle midi skirt.

Here’s my pick of the current online stock.

Love these shirts – just £12 each. They’d be perfect for my new casual work dresscode with skinny jeans and pointed shoes.

Stripes now. I’d have been all over that skirt in my old job, but it doesn’t really fit into my current life.

Now, I don’t wear swimsuits (because I want to tan AS MUCH as I possibly can!) but I could be persuaded to make an exception for any of these. The bandeau one looks like a two piece from the back, which is useful for back tanning. But there’s also potential for flesh overspill with those cut out sides! Especially by the end of a holiday (I eat like a wild animal on holiday, Because, why wouldn’t you?)

Bit of a wildcard here – these trousers! I have no idea why, but I’m inexplicably drawn to them. They’re not my style at all. Maybe it’s just the colours and the retro 50s capri shape and the happy holiday feel.

There’s also a dress in the same pattern, which I think would look great for a wedding with some retro styling – round toe heels, red lips and wavy hair.

I’d also wear this lemon print dress the same way.

These tops are nice and simple and would look great with 70s style flares, sunglasses, a fringed bag and wedge sandals.

Last few bits now. Love this bandeau dress.

Bandeau maxi

This kimono is very wearable both now and into high summer.

Kimono £16

And, to finish with my seeming obsession with all things hippy and 70s, these crochet hem jeans.

Embroidered jeans

I think Asda is more well rounded in terms of hitting trends and breadth of stock, but as I mentioned the quality can let it down.
