A stylish summer dress is the one thing we're desperate to wear right now, and with the weather warming up in the UK it seems it may finally be possible. 

Luckily, Marks and Spencer has come up trumps with on-trend, versatile summer dresses to wear all day and into the evening over the coming months. 

The Per Una Floral Frill Detail Midi Wrap Dress is high on our wish list for the summer season, for more reasons than one.

The design has a wrap front and ruffle hem, as well as an affordable price tag. (M&S)

Why we rate it

The Per Una Floral Frill Detail Midi Wrap Dress is mid length, and has a slight dipped hem, shorter at the front and longer at the back. 

It has short puff sleeves, and pretty frill detailing on the skirt. 

It also features a flattering v-neck and a waist belt, as well as a discreet side zip fastening. 

The Floral Frill Detail Midi Wrap Dress is available in UK dress sizes 6 to 24, although sizes are selling out fast. 

The dress is white emblazoned with pink and red florals, and retails for £39.50

Whether you wear for your next picnic, styled with a pair of trainers and a denim jacket, or sandals and a clutch bag for weddings, the options are endless. 

What the reviews say

With just under 100 reviews, it appears we are not the only ones eyeballing this stylish number. Here's what shoppers have to say:

  • "A pretty, floaty dress that fits well and is excellent value for money. The neckline as other reviews say is low but I can easily sort it. Can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear it."

  • "As usual with M&S I bought a smaller size and it fits perfectly. It is well made and feels comfortable, but also looks lovely and is very flattering. It is not cheap but well worth the reasonable price tag."

  • "This dress looks much better on than it does on the rail. It hangs beautifully, very floaty, but I agree with other reviewers that it needs a stitch at the neck for modesty’s sake! But not a problem."

  • "Saw this dress online and I wasn't disappointed when it arrived. Perfect fit, well made and it is very pretty. Looking forward to wearing it for my trip to Edinburgh this summer."

  • "This dress was sold out in my local stores but got my size online thankfully! Fits perfectly, sits beautifully and looks so much more expensive than £39.50."
