Summer is dress season, in our opinion, and as soon as the warmer weather hits, out come floral printed midi dresses, patterned designs, smock dresses, balloon sleeve numbers...
Dresses are our preferred summer staple because they need minimal styling, they're easy to just slip on, look dressy, so are perfect for all occasions, and are cooling.
There's a new design we have on our radar - the Spot Print V-Neck Midi Waisted Dress from Marks and Spencer.
Why we rate it
The Spot Print V-Neck Midi Waisted Dress is the relaxed everyday dress we all need.
This design features floaty angel wing sleeves, is midi length, with an empire below-bust cut.
It has a flattering v-neck line, as well as button front fastening.
M&S has paid extra attention to detail as this creation has shirred detailing at the waist to flatter your silhouette, plus a tiered hem.
It's made from a cream viscose fabric with white and black spot detail, although it also comes in a blue pattern too, which is selling out fast.
This new colourway is available in regular and long lengths, both of which are available in UK dress sizes 6 to 24, and retails for £39.50.
Whether you pair it with trainers or sandals, or even a pair of heeled summer shoes for a more formal engagement, it's a fail-safe garment we think shoppers will get a lot of wear from.
What the reviews say
Although the Spot Print V-Neck Midi Waisted Dress in the neutral mix is new in, it has already received positive reviews from shoppers. Here's what they have to say:
"This dress is a good fit. The elasticated section hides a multitude of sins. Great length. Great for the warmer weather."
"I envisage getting a lot of wear from this dress and have no hesitation in giving it a definite thumbs up!"
"I bought this yesterday tried it on, and it’s so flattering, I love it."
"I ordered a couple of dresses online for choice and this was definitely the best for me. Great for the fuller bust and not too long for the shorter lady."
"Bought yesterday, worn, washed, & plan to wear again tomorrow. Fits perfectly; it's long enough to wear with trainers or dress up with heels. Looks better on than in that photo."
