The £40 Austin Floral Print Angel Sleeve Midi Dress dress debuted on the high street store’s Instagram last week with the promise that “everyone will be talking about [it] this season,” and sure enough, the standout dress is already taking over our feeds.
With a flattering cut-out back, free-flowing fit and double open split, the Austin dress mixes femininity and practicality in equal measure, and is just the piece we need to persuade us to part ways with our black tights.
We’ve had a taste of spring sunshine and our new season wardrobes are underway. But if you’re still searching for the perfect dress to signal your new sartorial status, Topshop has come through with the midi dress of dreams.
Plenty of fashion-forward Instagrammers have pointed out that the patchwork daisy print looks uncannily similar to designer brand Rixo, whose colourful bohemian dresses retail around £300.
The spring-ready “midaxi” dress has already been snapped up by a range of fashion influencers, who have highlighted the piece as a favourite from Topshop’s spring collections.
It seems Topshop’s hype was right, because the Austin Floral Print Angel Sleeve Midi Dress has been flying off the rails, with pieces already appearing on eBay for double the price.
The Austin dress is currently stocked in sizes 4 to 18, although they’re selling out fast online, so you need to hotfoot it down to Topshop if you to snag this conversation-starter.
Trust us, this dress + strappy sandals + box bag = a total summer vibe.
