Jersey Girl

Sometimes, shops, and trends can take me by surprise, both in quality, and desirability. I’m fairly well known as being High Maintenance, though this is a badge I dispute on occasion. So to find myself seriously considering the entire jersey range from George at Asda has taken me by surprise.

The Sports Luxe trend of course goes hand in hand with the wedge trainer trend, and this jersey range seems to be a variation on that. It’s not all polo shirts, tennis dresses, or airtex. It’s simple styled pieces, just made in super comfy, wearable jersey.

The trousers will have huge demand I’m sure, as they feel like trackies, or even pj bottoms, but are styled a little classier. Stay at home mums, people who work from home, a change from jeans on dress down Fridays at work, or just casual weekend shopping attire, I really can see these being a much used purchase. And the fact that they are only £8 is a real bonus.


Another surprise is this jersey skirt. Probably could have gone without the drawstring waist, but for £5, I could live with that. Paired with a white shirt, denim jacket, and your fave wedges, this will look much more than it’s price. I’m getting 2.


There are various styles of top available, all under £10. Yes, they are jersey, which makes them a simple tshirt, yes? But add a cowl neck, Breton stripes, even a loud pattern or draped metallics, and though you may have only thrown on jeans, and a tee, you will still look fab.


A midi dress is everywhere at the minute. Harder for short women to carry off, and if you are uncomfortable with your lumpy bits, they can be unforgiving. But if they are for you, this khaki marl colour is a little different from all the monochrome ones available, and won’t break the bank at £10.


If you simply must wear a smart dress to work, the frill hem on this will suit you. Very cute styling, and a reasonable price of £16. Jersey is hardy, and washes well, as everyone knows from washing sports gear, though you can’t tumble dry these, due to a higher amount of stretch in the clothes. Still, a good buy for a smarter wardrobe.


I really like this Moda lace panel top, for £12. It has a dipped hem, and long sleeves, which is great for those of us who are constantly cold, and don’t really want to flash your behind when you sit. Paired with skinny black jeans, and ankle boots, I think people would be surprised to hear where you bought it.


I certainly think George at Asda are on to a winner with this range. They know their customers, they know people want comfort and style, and at a price that won’t scare. I hope the quality is acceptable, but having purchased and worn the Breton stripe top a dozen or more times, I can honestly say it’s worth it!
