Did we mention it costs just £27.50? Talk about a bargain! Here's why we think this affordable frock is a versatile piece you're sure to get lots of wear out of this year and beyond.

Why we rate it

For starters, the printed tea dress is made from soft jersey fabric with added stretch to ensure all-day comfort. This also means that the dress won't need any ironing, which is always a bonus.

The dress features a number of chic touches, which means it looks way more expensive than it is. For starters, the tiered midi-length skirt gives the dress a lovely shape (which is also very forgiving). One shopper said that it's "very flattering and hides your bumps well".
