Anthropologie's 'best-selling dress ever' is perfect for summer (and P.S., it's flattering on everyone)

"Flattering" doesn't even begin to cover it.

As an avid dress connoisseur, I am a total sucker for any dress that I can wear day to night, especially as we enter summer dress and wedding season. Among the many (many, many!) dresses I have my eye on is Anthropologie's iconic Somerset Maxi Dress. The Somerset is everything you want in a dress — it looks good on everyone, comes in multiple designs and sizes (including a brand new floral pattern for summer), and for under $200, you can easily justify its cost-per-wear.

While the Somerset has made its way to my personal Anthropologie wish list (it's in good company with these picks), I am hardly its only fan. Dubbed the retailer's "best-selling, best-reviewed dress ever," the original Somerset, alongside everything else from Anthropologie's spinoff Somerset Collection, has become a must-shop, especially as we gear up for warmer weather. To shop the original and check out what else is worth buying from the Somerset range, check out the details below.
