I’m like every other woman: a closet full of clothes, but nothing to wear: so I wear jeans. – Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz is definitely talking some truth here – aren’t we all guilty of this? Fashion is hard to master every day and we change our minds on which trends and styles we like so often that, let’s face it, the one item that we rely on is a good pair of flattering jeans. However, it doesn’t have to be your only wardrobe staple item – think maxi dresses, cropped trousers and midi skirts. These are all great items that can be teamed with so many different pieces – it’s just a matter of remembering they are in your wardrobe! One lovely lady who shows us how to style up staple items on a daily basis is Gemma, at the helm of the blog – What Is In Her Wardrobe.
Gemma’s style is trend-led and uber fashionable. This fashionista, (a self confessed shopaholic), knows how to team together different looks to make it work for her. We’ve been looking to Gemma for inspiration particularly when it comes to how to wear the midi skirt.
We love how Gemma keeps her look simple and effortlessly chic. Teaming this Aztec print midi skirt with a simple white tee and statement necklace is the perfect outfit for a sunny weekend with friends. What do you think of Gemma’s midi-length look? Comment and let us know below…

Over the past couple of weeks in the UK we’ve been experiencing a luscious heat wave, which has kept a smile on all our faces! Let’s face it… it doesn’t happen very often so lets make the most of our summer this year! More than the weather, we love how everyone’s style comes out in full bloom. It’s all about the white dresses – whether you go for a shift style, midi or maxi dress. Take a peek at two of our favourite bloggers who are both working the white dress look to the max by adding their own personal touches. Which style of dress would be your pick?
Sian From Style With Friends
We love how Sian’s style radiates femininity and simplicity. Wearing cotton dresses in the summer sun will ensure you stay as cool as a cucumber, and a touch of embellishment really adds to the look. Sian adds a shimmer to her style with F&F metallic sandals, which ensures her look is finished to perfection and ready for any occasion.
Clare From Rainbows and Fairydust
Clare is the queen of festival glamour! Attending Glastonbury this year, she’s got the boho chic style down to a tee. We love her embellished white dress – the perfect look for any summer’s day. Maxi dresses are so versatile; they can be dressed up or down to create so many different gorgeous looks. We love how Clare teamed a purple cardie with this outfit to add a pop of colour to bring out her personal style.
What’s your summer style? Tweet us a picture @ClothingatTesco including the hashtag #myFFstyle and a full-length photo of your look featuring at least one F&F item. You could be in with a chance of winning a £25 F&F voucher!

‘You can never be overdressed or overeducated’- Oscar Wilde
Fingers crossed the sun is here to stay this weekend – bring on the BBQ’s galore, picnics, relaxing in the park and of course the delicious ice creams! Of course, we’ve loved seeing your evolving styles as the weather has warmed up recently here in the UK. It’s always difficult to stay cool, particularly in the heat of the city. So this week, we’ve found a London based blogger who is clued up on the latest city fashions to give you that helping hand if you are on the look out for it!
Aba from the blog Do You Noah, started her blog whilst studying for a Journalism degree. Over time, Aba’s blog has changed along with her life journey and now we see a lot of posts about her personal fashion, beauty and lifestyle.
One of the main reasons for following Aba’s blog is because she shows us styles that work so well wherever you are. When you have a super busy lifestyle it is great to be able to have a wardrobe full of outfits that can take you from work to eveningwear – whether you plan to go out for dinner with friends, drinks at a swanky cocktail bar or a relaxing trip to the cinema.
Top Tip: Take a big bag with you to allow for a change of shoes, make up and perfume so wherever you are you can freshen up and look glamorous the whole day!
What’s your top tip for dressing from day to night in the city? Comment below or tweet us @Clothingattesco.
