With warmer temperatures on the horizon, our shopping team have been busy browsing the high street for stylish spring pieces that we think deserve a spot in your wardrobe. If you're looking for a budget-friendly dress that you can feel great in this season, look no further than than Marks & Spencer's brand new Jersey Printed Tie Detail Midi Tea Dress.

It's already selling out quickly, as shoppers say it's "excellent value for money", "very comfortable" and "flattering".

Available in: Three prints

Available across M&S' petite, regular and long ranges, this floral dress is a great all-rounder, perfect for the office, brunch, and as a wedding guest. 

£28 at M&S

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.

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 and swishiness (which is also very forgiving).

The elasticated sleeves have a hint of volume to add a touch of elegance, while the matching self-tie belt helps accentuate your waist, creating a flattering silhouette.
