Dress of the day is back and we're here with an option that works not only for today, but all year round.

In fact, for one day only, we ought to rename 'dress of the day', 'dress of the every day', due to its versatile colour and shape. 

Here's exactly why we're adding this outfit to our baskets ASAP. 

Why we rate it:

We love a floral dress that doesn't scream 'you can only wear me in summer', and the feminine pattern against the black fabric makes this a versatile, year-round piece. 

Wear it with sandals in the summer, and tights and boots in the winter, or with a denim jacket and trainers in the spring of 2022 and beyond.

The maxi-length design is cut in a regular fit and features a versatile detachable belt for an elegant silhouette, plus, the long blouson sleeves help to create a flattering, on-trend style. 

And did we mention, it has pockets. Who doesn't love pockets? 

It also comes in two colourways: one black and one blue mix, both of which have already sold out in most sizes, but luckily, there has just been a re-stock.

What the reviews say:

The dress may be new to M&S' digital rails, having only been launched a few weeks ago, but it is already racking up five-star reviews very quickly. 

  • "Bought in both colours. This is the only style that fits me. Long enough arms, not a high neck, and nice and long. So many dress have too short sleeves and elasticated waists which rise up and are not quite a maxi length. Also empire line and lower tiers is flattering. More please."

  • "I bought the black version , looks and feels lovely on. So very pleased with my purchase."

  • "Lovely fit good washing material, nice flow to dress when you walk."

  • "There is still lots of material to give it a lovely swishy feeling and the pockets are a bonus too."

  • "Bought this 3 weeks ago and love it. The colour is gorgeous, small tie belt at middle can be tied to front or back."

  • "Absolutely love this dress! The colour, pattern, the v-neckline and length. And it’s even got side pockets!"
