    I love a designer treat as much as the next person, I mean who doesn’t dream of a shiny new pair of Louboutin unicorn boots? But I also can’t resist a good bargain.

    Which is why I’m always keeping an eye on supermarket fashion brands for something to update my wardrobe without breaking the bank. If you ask me, they’re sorely underrated. Have you seen the Tu Graduate Fashion Week Collection? It’s insane.

    And the great news is, Tu has just dropped a top that’s so good, the fashion press already can’t get enough of it, and it’s only £20.

    The Voodoo embroidered sleeve top is inspired by Eastern European folk tops and thanks to its detailed embroidery and puffy sleeves, looks SO much more expensive than it is.

    People were actually shocked when I wore mine and told them where it was from, that’s how good it is. You can wear it with denim cut-offs, white palazzo trousers, black dungarees or even a maxi skirt, so it’s more versatile than you’d think.

    Fashion editors and influencers have been posting loads about it on Instagram, and judging by the reviews section on the Tu website, it’s a hit with customers too.

    One wrote, ‘I love this Hungarian embroidery trend and this top ticks all the boxes for me at a fraction of the price. the quality and fit are really good too.’

    Another said, ‘Bought this and absolutely love it, cool and light weight. I had so many compliments as I work in a fashion store myself, so many customers wanted to know where it was from.’

    ‘I’ve only tried this on to check that it fits (it does!). It looks good – now I await weather warm enough to flaunt it outside,’ another wrote.
