This week we've fallen head over heels in love with the versatile and lightweight John Lewis Agnes Tea Dress, which features three-quarter length sleeves with ruffled cuffs, pleated detailing at the neckline, and a midi-length skirt.

This super versatile patterned midi dress in a flattering green and cream print can be dressed up for big occasions or down for everyday wear.

Costing £65, it's an initial investment but it's versatile enough to be worn all year round, as well as styled for pretty much any occasion. Shoppers who have already got their hands on the number are singing its praises for how "comfortable and elegant" it is.

For starters, the green and cream pattern exudes springtime, but in a subtle, not overpoweringly floral way.

The ruched bodice and blouson sleeves make the dress look so much more expensive than it is. One shopper agreed that although the dress silhouette is rather simple, the finishing touches "elevate this dress to another level".

The dress has also been designed to be super flattering on your figure. One shopper even said that it "fits like a dream" and is a "joy to own".

Keeping the warmer weather in mind, this tea dress has also been made from a super lightweight fabric to keep you cool on summer days. It also means it's a great throw-on number, with one shopper saying they recently chucked it in a suitcase for a holiday and it didn't crease at all.

The versatile nature of this dress means that it can be styled for any occasion. Going to a wedding? A pair of heels and some elegant jewellery will elevate the look. Heading to the office? Throw on a blazer and trainers.

We've also spotted that the style comes in a red version too. The Agnes Puff Sleeve Dress retails for a slightly more expensive £79, and looks equally as high quality and flattering.

The Agnes dress also comes in a red version with puff sleeves, which is a great sartorial statement.

We foresee this dress flying off the shelves as John Lewis has really knocked it out the park with its own-brand spring and summer dresses this year. In fact, this floral shirred midi dress sold out within days (but has luckily just been restocked).

This popular John Lewis has already sold out and had to be restocked numerous times.

The Agnes Tea Dress has already garnered a stellar 4.5 out of five star rating. Here's what customers are saying:

  • "The perfect spring dress! Fits like a dream, beautiful material, and my joy to own!"

  • "Delighted with this dress. The material drapes brilliantly and the pattern is easy to wear. I would say the green part of the pattern is a little darker than on the pictures on line but that's fine. The star of the show, for me, is the cut of the dress. Its a very flattering and slimming cut. I ordered a 14, as my regular size and the fit is perfect. Worth every penny and a classic for future years too."

  • "I bought this beautiful dress for a wedding and it is perfect, although the pattern is simple, the styling is not. The sleeves and rushing on the front elevate this dress to another level."

  • "A beautiful dress, well-cut and not oversized. So figure-flattering, actually gives my slim frame shape."

  • "Looks good all day, very little creasing, flattering fit for those with curves."

  • "The fabric hangs well and has a soft feel. Bought for a Spring visit to Spain so was lightweight and comfortable and didn't crease in the suitcase. It fitted well which pleased a "petite" customer."

  • "Easy to wear, light and comfortable. Very useful addition to a summer wardrobe. Looks good."
