Holly Willoughby has well and truly kicked off the start of the spring season by showcasing a pink animal-print dress from the new Marks & Spencer collection on her Instagram.

The This Morning host shared a photograph of herself wearing the M&S Animal Print Puff Sleeve Midaxi Tea Dress in a vibrant pink hue that we imagine will fly straight off the shelves just as soon as it's stocked.

“And just in time for all this glorious spring sunshine…” the TV Host captioned her Instagram post. “@marksandspencer new collection ‘The Edit’ launches today and it’s full of absolutely fab pieces that are perfect for spring. Don’t miss out… 👗 ☀️ 🌸 "

The vibrant midi dress is similar in shape to some of Willoughby’s favourite go-to dresses from Marks & Spencer, with its short puff sleeves, high round neck, as well as a discreet zip fastening.

Its midi length, floaty style and lightweight fabric makes for a flattering silhouette that we’re adding straight to the top of our must-have list for the warmer months ahead.

The dress is super versatile and its timeless animal print means it can be worn for numerous occasions, year after year, and at just £39.50, it's the ideal cost-per-wear investment.

Opt for a pair of heeled sandals like Willoughby for a summer BBQ, or stick to white trainers for picnics in the park. Its vibrant pink shade and sophisticated silhouette means it can even be worn to more formal occasions. Switch sandals for court shoe heels or wedges and add a fascinator or hat for summer wedding chic.

However you decide to wear it, we recommend being quick, as it's already selling fast. If you don’t manage to get your hands on Willoughby’s exact animal-print midi dress, the style is still extremely versatile, so we’ve done the hard work for you and found five alternative M&S animal-print dresses, just in case.
