Over the last year we've endlessly recycled our comfy leggings, tracksuit set and baggy tees while working from home, but as lockdown restrictions start to lift, we're planning to wear nothing but floaty dresses all summer long - because why not? They're lightweight, stylish, and go with everything. 

One in particular we have our hearts set on is the Floral V-Neck Puff Sleeve Midi Tea Dress, which is new in at Marks and Spencer.

Whether you pair it with trainers, flat sandals or heeled wedges, this is our summer staple. (Marks and Spencer)

Why we rate it

The Floral V-Neck Puff Sleeve Midi Tea Dress is bound to take pride of place in everyone's wardrobe this summer - that's if we can be persuaded out of it to put it back on the hanger. 

We think this stylish tea dress is the ideal buy, as it's super versatile and has a beautiful vintage-inspired pattern. 

With on-trend short puff sleeves, it's v-neck, and mid-length. 

It's available in regular and long lengths, and UK dress sizes 6 to 24, although some sizes are already selling out fast. 

At just £39.50, it's the bargain of the summer.

What the reviews say

Though the Floral V-Neck Puff Sleeve Midi Tea Dress is new in at M&S, shoppers are already impressed. Here's what they have to say: 

  • "The dress is beautiful. Lovely material, well made, true to size - bought the long length as I am 5ft 8 and wearing it with dark blue denim cropped jacket I bought last week."

  • "This is a lovely, pretty print dress and very flattering. I opted for the long length as the standard length was not good for me, as I’m 5ft 6 in."

  • "This dress fits beautifully and hangs well. I am 6’ tall and size 12/14 : the 14 Reg came mid calf which is what I wanted."
