The dress style has already been a hit this spring, with the initial version (which was a red and white print) selling out within days and quickly amassed a slew of five-star reviews for its flattering fit, quality, and comfort. If you didn't get your hands on it the first time around, now's your chance, as the high street store has now brought it out in a new colour that we'd say is even better.

Floral and floaty, this pretty midi dress is perfect for your summer wardrobe.

The new shade is a very wearable vibrant green with white floral detailing and it's already impressing M&S shoppers. One customer said she "received lots of compliments" when she wore it, while others are full of praise for the flattering fit, the fact it doesn't need ironing (bonus!) and its affordable price.

Firstly, there's no denying the versatility of this dress, which can be worn for a number of occasions. You can dress it up for a summer wedding or a day at the races with some heels, a blazer, and a nice bag, or keep things more casual with a denim jacket and trainers for a day at the office or a BBQ.

We love the V-neckline, which is super flattering for larger busts, while the voluminous puff sleeves add a touch of femininity and elegance. The tea dress silhouette means the more fitted chest area flows into a floaty skirt for a breathable and forgiving shape.

This is a warm weather wardrobe staple that will get plenty of wear throughout summer and beyond. (Marks & Spencer)

Meanwhile, the ditsy floral print is subtle enough that it’s not too overpowering, unlike some larger prints. The excellent shade of emerald green is also complementary to all skin tones.

As an added bonus, lots of shoppers have also said that it doesn't crease, which means it's a great number to chuck in your suitcase for your summer holiday too.

It’s currently available in sizes 6 to 24 in M&S's petite, regular and long ranges. However, if M&S's other floral dresses are anything to go by, it won’t be in stock for long.

Unsurprisingly, this dress been a hit among shoppers for its comfort, fit and versatility - here's what some had to say.
