Dress of the day: The M&S belted midi that's 'super flattering and easy to wear'

Marks & Spencer is one of the few places that know how to design a well-rounded, versatile and flattering midi dress at an affordable price. And our latest dress discovery proves just that.

Available in four gorgeous colourways and for just £35, we think we've found the perfect transitional piece.

Let us introduce you to this incredibly wearable, comfortable and stylish midaxi (in-between midi and maxi legnth) dress that we think is worth snapping up before it sells out.

Why we rate it

Available in petite, regular and long sizing to suit your height, it comes in a variety of easy-to-wear prints, all in the same flattering shape and button-down detail.

It cinches in at the waist thanks to a matching self-tie belt, and features a touch of gathering on the sleeves to add some volume. It also features a smart collared neckline and a slightly flared skirt for ultimate comfortable.

The material is a soft, responsibly sourced viscose fabric that is super lightweight, so ideal for this transeasonal weather.

£35 at Marks & Spencer

We picture this shirt dress working well with a pair of neutral boots and a cross-body bag, for a simple but sophisticated everyday look. The shirt dress silhouette means it would look just as good dressed up with some heels for a smart occasion.
