M&S' new spring/summer dress offering is definitely a sight to behold at the moment. 

Not only has the brand just released a new collection of 15 dreamy dresses with London-based label, Ghost, but its own M&S designs are also flying off the virtual shelves. 

One style in particular is selling super fast this week, and it may have something to do with its resemblance to a number worn by the Duchess of Cambridge last year. 

In June 2020, the 39-year-old royal wore the Printed Yoke Midaxi Waisted Dress from M&S for a virtual online assembly for Oak National Academy.

The royal-approved £39.50 number was immediately a hit and sold out fast. 

M&S has never restocked the Printed Yoke Midaxi Waisted Dress, but the British brand has now brought out new midaxi styles for 2021, which feature a similar silhouette. 

The Floral Frill Detail Midaxi Waisted Dress holds many similarities to the dress worn by Kate, featuring a similar elegant midaxi length, cuff detailed sleeves and floaty skirt.

There's also the Ditsy Floral Round Neck Midi Waisted Dress, which features a similar flattering waist detail and flared skirt - it also costs a more affordable £39.50.

The reviews for the new-in numbers are full of praise: "This dress is a great shape and flattered my plus size body well" said one happy shopper about the Floral Frill Detail Midaxi Waisted Dress

While another review reads: "An easy to wear summer dress that looks a lot more expensive than it actually is. Very pleased."

The dresses come in UK dress sizes 6 to 24, but sizes are already selling out fast.

Whether you pair these dresses with a denim jacket for a picnic date, or heeled wedges for a garden party, the versatile numbers are bound to be a great new addition to your summer wardrobe.
