She’s done it again! Ever the source of a brilliant budget fashion find, Alex Jones has set off our style radars once more with a super chic vintage-look floral midi dress, and we’ve tracked it down on the high street.
BBC presenter Alex wore the dress, from sustainable fashion brand Nobody’s Child, on last night’s episode of The One Show, and was instantly showered with compliments on her Instagram account after sharing a snap of her ensemble.
‘I love your dresses Alex. You wear some lovely clothes,’ said one viewer, while another agreed: ‘Great show and you looked amazing in that dress, love the neckline 👌’
The comments on the post were also full of requests from fans asking where Alex had found such a beautiful outfit, presumably so they could shop it for themselves before the inevitable sellout happens.
And if you count yourself among them, there’s good news, because at the beginning of October Nobody’s Child became the first external brand (ever!) to launch at M&S – meaning you can get your hands on Alex’s dress on their website, where it’s still in stock in several sizes, as well as the brand’s own online store.
The ‘Rosie’ dress is a retro-inspired style with a ditsy print, midi length, short puff sleeves and a ruched V-neck, and true to the brand’s eco-friendly values, its made from sustainably sourced viscose.
It’s an elegant, wear-forever buy that you’ll pull out of your wardrobe time and time again – but if you’re in the market for something a little more everyday, Alex isn’t the only famous face to choose Nobody’s Child for an on-screen appearance recently. In fact, just last week Holly Willoughby was spotted wearing a blue Floral Midi Waisted Dress from the same line.
Holly’s pick from the collection is even more purse-friendly at just £39, but has all of the same whimsical charm and pretty detailing as Alex’s. As a slightly more relaxed alternative, it would look just as good with this season’s chunky boots as it would a pair of white trainers, or a smarter pair of heels.
Either way, whether you’ve got a special occasion coming up where you need to dress to impress, or simply want to treat yourself to a wardrobe pick-me-up that won’t ever go out of style, now you know which brand to look to. Just be sure to strike on your favourite items before Alex and Holly’s followers beat you to it.
