As an avid dress connoisseur, I am a total sucker for any dress that I can wear day to night, especially as we enter summer dress and wedding season. Among the many (many, many!) dresses I have my eye on is Anthropologie's iconic Somerset Maxi Dress. The Somerset is everything you want in a dress — it looks good on everyone, comes in multiple designs and sizes, and for under $200, you can easily justify its cost-per-wear.

While the Somerset has made its way to my personal Anthropologie wish list (it's in good company with these picks), I am hardly its only fan. Dubbed the retailer's "bestselling, best-reviewed dress ever," the original Somerset has more than 15,900 "loves" and 1,800+ reviews. Shoppers say it's a "dress that everyone should own." They love it for its "flattering fit" and versatility, stating that it can be "daytime casual" or "dressed up" for nighttime.

The brand just dropped a ton of new colourways and styles — and some are already selling out. So, if you're looking to add this flattering frock to your collection, we suggest moving fast!
