Alex Jones’s £30 Zara dress is the piece your summer wardrobe needs

She may be eight months pregnant with her second child, but Alex Jones is still providing us with plenty of on-screen fashion inspiration – and not from the maternity section.

The One Show presenter Alex appeared on a recent episode of the show in a beautiful floaty patterned dress with a round neckline and asymmetric hem; a casual yet chic look that won her plenty of compliments from viewers.

‘Wow you look stunning,’ wrote one follower on Alex’s Instagram account, while another agreed: ‘You look so radiant. The dress colour looks fantastic on you.’

Others clamoured to find out where the outfit was from so they could snap it up for themselves – and luckily, Alex’s stylist Tess Wright revealed on her own account that it’s actually a bargain high street buy from Zara.

The colourful dress features a combination of floral and paisley prints, and is perfect for throwing on with sandals and a saddle bag when the sun starts shining, or packing in your suitcase for your next beach holiday.

The best bit? It will only set you back £29.99 – leaving you with more cash to spare for your poolside drinks order.

Alex, who already shares son Teddy, two, with husband Charlie Thomson, announced that she was expecting her second child live on air in December, joking to the audience: ‘I’ve not been on the mince pies, there is a little baby.’

She added on social media: ‘We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to finally share this and looking forward so much to introducing the new baby to little Teddy early next summer.’

The star says that she is now in the ‘homeward stretch’ of her work before settling in to her maternity leave and welcoming baby number two. We can’t wait to see what name the couple chooses for their bundle of joy!
