Quick overview

For starters, the dress features a midaxi-length skirt (which falls between a midi and a maxi) for an elegant silhouette. The design is further enhanced with short sleeves adorned with chic ruffled detailing, as well as a flattering gathered waistline.

Shoppers have described it as a "go-anywhere dress", noting that its simple style and striking white and blue floral print make it very easy to dress up with heels and a blazer or down with trainers and a denim jacket. One shopper even referred to it as a "summer sensation" and we'd have to agree.

Made from responsibly sourced viscose, the dress is also incredibly lightweight and comfortable, making it ideal for warmer weather.
