We’ll never shy away from a new Marks and Spencer (M&S) dress drop. Especially when it included one of the brand’s most-loved styles, in not one, but three new styles.

We already know that M&S have a good thing going when it comes to its midi dresses – flattering, light, and so, so versatile, the British brand has really hit the sweet spot for summer dresses – and it's just added more to the collection.

This ideal summer jersey dress has that much-sought-after dress-up, dress-down quality, and it comes in at a very reasonable £25.

No matter your style, M&S has launched three new versions of its Jersey V-Neck Belted Midi Tea Dress, in blue leopard print, green polka dot, and classic black.

The lightweight jersey fabric makes it perfect for warmer days and its self-tie belt adds an extra something, making it suitable to be taken right through to the evening, really upping that cost-per-wear potential.

Why we rate it:

Not only do we love M&S dresses for their flattering shape and fit, its jersey stretch fabric is ideal for keeping comfortable in warmer weather, too.

Available in M&S' three lengths, short, medium and long, the midi-length dress also features a V-shaped neckline and a self-tie fastening at the waist to accentuate the elegant shape whilst short sleeves offer an airy feel.

M&S’ stylists have paired each of the new styles with different shoes, further highlighting the versatility of the £25 midi dress now and for months to come.

Wear with sandals and a light denim jacket now, or a pair of white trainers for a more casual look, and switch to boots and a heavier cover-up in cooler temperatures.

What the reviews say:

So far, shoppers have been singing the garment’s praises, with mostly four- and five-star reviews. Fans have been complimenting the midi dress’ light feel and versatility, and declared it “so comfortable to wear”

Whilst some shoppers have suggested going up a dress size when purchasing, the fabric does have some stretch, so it may depend on your body shape which size you choose.

The dress has a light fabric, so if you prefer more coverage on areas that might stretch (a bigger bust, for example) sizing up would be a good idea.

Whilst we think the £25 must-have has an immediate add-to-basket quality, it's nice to know our opinions are backed by lots of satisfied customers, too.

  • “Great value versatile dress.”

  • “Love this dress - just an easy style in lovely fabric. More of these please!”
