We've found that we can never have too many dresses, especially summer dresses. 

Shoppers are spoilt for choice at the moment with a whole host of styles, shapes, cuts and prints out there, but we find that having so many options can be a bit overwhelming. 

Which is why we like to pick out the best of the best in our Dress of the Day series.

In recent weeks we have been head over heels for Boden's polka dot dress, M&S' linen printed number, and now we've fallen for Monsoon's Amina Check Dolly Midi Dress.

Why we rate it

The Monsoon Amina Check Dolly Midi Dress screams summer vibes and we are here for it. 

This lightweight design is made from 100% cotton, which is the perfect breathable material when the warm weather hits. 

This design has a "fit and flare" shape, with soft tailoring on the top half which floats out into the skirt. 

It is midi length, with 3/4 length sleeves, which have a feminine bow tie detail on the cuff. It also features waist panelling, as well as a gathered detail at the base of the bust, and on the waist downwards to provide that extra volume with a cinched in middle. 

This Monsoon midi dress is the perfect summer wardrobe staple, as it can be dressed up or down with trainers.  (John Lewis & Partners)

The dress has a button front fastening, which allows you to undo some buttons at the base if you want a little extra movement. 

Plus, this design has side pockets, which we love. 

Did we forget to mention the gorgeous on-trend print? The blue and white large gingham check print is what gives us summer vibes. 

It is available in dress sizes 6 to 22, and costs £70.
