Trans-seasonal dressing can seem tricky but it's actually very simple. It's all about layers. Which is why we love a maxi dress. Ideal for pairing with a roll neck and tights/leggings when cold out or wearing as is on warmer days.

Which is why our dress of the day is a long-sleeved floral number from Boden, which can be worn all winter long and lends itself perfectly to bundling up with tights, jackets and gloves.

What's even better, Boden currently has a up to 60% sale on, which if you haven't had a scroll through yet, we highly suggest you do ASAP.

Our top sale pick, The Jessie Maxi Shirt Dress, is now massively discounted from £120 to only £48.

Plus, you can get an extra 10% off right now with the code EX10 at the checkout, which takes the dress down to only £43.20.

Unsurprisingly, it's one Boden's sale favourites too, so we think this trans-seasonal number may sell out rather fast.

Why we rate it:

The botanical-inspired printed maxi dress is the perfect modern maxi to take you through the spring.

Crafted from a heavyweight crepe fabric that drapes beautifully, it includes a neat button-through closure, classic collar and chest pockets.

Plus, and this is possibly our favourite part, the clever stretch detailing at the waist flatters any shape while ensuring a comfortable fit.

If you're not a fan of the bright, sunshine florals. It also comes in a bottle green design called Midnight Garden, which is also on sale for just £43.20.

While the dress can be worn with a pair of sturdy boots in the winter, numerous customers are also planning to continue the dress in their wardrobe rotation through the spring, swapping their footwear for trainers or sandals.

What the reviews say:

Customers who have already snapped up the versatile design and praised it for its flattering and comfy silhouette (and pockets, who doesn't love pockets?).

Some shoppers have recommended going down a size though as it can be rather roomy, and if you're on the shorter side go for the petite fit.

  • "Thrilled to bits with the quality and weight of material; the dress may be worn for disparate occasions, always feeling appropriate and so comfortable. Eye -catching print and compliments a plenty!"

  • "LOVE this dress! It's super comfortable, flattering and has pockets!"

  • "Gorgeous dress, fits perfectly and is in a lovely fabric. I've had lots of lovely compliments even though I've only had it a short time and it's perfect for both day & night time events (or transitioning between the two)!"

  • "The quality of the material is lovely and a pretty design. Really nice dress that can be worn for smart or casual."

  • "Beautiful fit, great length and I love the colour. I adore Boden's dresses as they are true to size and great quality."
