9 summer dresses you'd never believe are from the supermarket

And they’re all under £30

We love nothing more than treating ourselves to a little something from our local supermarket’s fashion range to reward ourselves for doing the big shop.

And we couldn’t help but notice how many brilliant summer dresses there are at Tu at Sainsbury’s. Is it just us, or do these supermarket dresses look more expensive than they are? At £30 and under, we’re off on a stylish supermarket sweep to stock up on our holiday wardrobes and prep ourselves for the incoming heatwave.

From floral midi dresses to gingham prints to shell designs (which even comes in a mini me version), these are the ones we’re adding to our trolley…

Shell print summer midi dress, £24, Tu at Sainsbury's


The midi length, the pinafore style, the shell design - this dress has summer wrapped up in one.

Retro floral square neck dress, £24, Tu at Sainsbury's


If ever there’s a season to embrace colour, it’s summer and this gloriously fun midi dress features puff sleeves, a square neckline and a retro inspired floral print. This one's all over Instagram!

Paisley print wrap dress, £20, Tu at Sainsbury's


The universally flattering appeal of a wrap dress is our saviour when we’re stuck as to what to wear. You could dress this paisley design up with heels and a cream blazer for a summer occasion or down with white sneakers and a denim jacket for a festival.
