If there is one thing that Marks & Spencers is good at, it's creating a flattering dress.

Yes, its bras are a wardrobe staple and its loungewear saw us through the toughest days of lockdown, but it's the dresses that get us most excited.

The silhouettes are also flattering, the prints always on trend, and the sizings is pretty much spot on.

Which is why we're predicting this new Ditsy Floral Tie Detail Midaxi Tiered Dress will sell out fast. 

Why we rate it:

For starters, M&S has previously stocked numerous similar designs which have sold out faster than we could add them to our basket. 

Why, you ask?

M&S has perfected the 'midaxi' style, an easy throw-on silhouette, between a midi and maxi length, which is an absolute game-changer. 

The affordable £39.50 number sits within M&S' summer collection, but we would argue this dress is a year-round piece.

Pair with Birkenstocks for a relaxed warm weather look or add tights, boots and a jacket as the season changes, and a thick, fluffy coat will see you through the winer months, too.

The floral piece boasts a tie belt that nips in the waist for a flattering silhouette, with gorgeous, dainty buttons along the cuffs and centre front.

It's super-soft, super-comfy and so easy to throw on, you'll never want to wear anything else. 

As the dress is new, there is currently only one review. However, it includes a few useful style tips and proves exactly why we predict this is going to be a firm favourite for summer. 

"Loving the nice long length. Tiers start at waist rather than under breast which I find more flattering," the satisfied shopper writes. "Feels like it has a slight waist unlike others. I think the belt looks best just tied at the back. Nice cool viscose unlike some of the other midaxi dresses."
