If you thought a couple of weeks ago that you had enough summer dresses, you’re probably now realising – after four whole days of uninterrupted sunshine (!) – that there’s no such thing.
So if you’ve got your shopping antenna on high alert for a new one (or ten) to update your wardrobe, let us introduce you to the latest piece causing a stir both on our Instagram feed and in the office.
This checked number from Zara is not only impossibly flattering, but also – for something you’ll wear time after time – a bargain at £40. In fact, it’s just under, sitting pretty at £39.99. Don’t say the British high street doesn’t spoil us.
Belted at the waist, the dress features elbow-length, flared sleeves, a mid-length hemline, full skirt and high neck, so regardless of your look it’s one to suit every style.
Wear it to work with a white boot, to a summer BBQ with flat woven sandals, to dinner with some heeled black mules and over the weekend with some white trainers.
You’ll have to act fast though, as – judging by our Instagram feeds – this is one that looks set to sell out. Pronto.
