With holiday season in full swing and on-and-off warmer temperatures on the horizon, it's safe to assume that the majority of us have switched out our chunky knits and long sleeves for a stock of updated summer dresses. Yet to land on the right one? John Lewis has only gone and done it again with a new collection of quality, stylish dresses. But there's one style in particular that's caught our eye, this Floral Print Shirred Dress, £65.

The latest iteration of a previous John Lewis dress that sold out in record time, it features a comfy floaty shape, shirred elasticated waist and flattering neckline. Originally available in a dusty blue colourway, the new dress comes in a summery sage green with a chic all-over floral print.

Brand-new to John Lewis, reviews for the dress have already started flooding in, with shoppers hailing it as "very stylish", and "so comfy to wear".

Great for summer, this sage green pick is designed with flared sleeves, a shirred waist and floaty, tiered skirt for a relaxed yet put-together look.

If the original version is anything to go by, we don't see this style hanging around for long so be quick if you want to get your hands on one of the best dresses of the season.

First things first, the shape of this dress is perfect for summer. Designed with flared short sleeves, a V-neckline and floaty, tiered skirt, it's perfect for throwing on with a pair of white trainers or sandals for a chic summertime look, or some heels for an elevated evening outfit.

The shirred waist is definitely a standout feature, creating a super flattering and comfortable cut that cinches you in, providing a gorgeous hourglass shape. Not just that, there's even pockets! Super discreet, there's two handy side pockets, a lovely and functional design detail.

Then there's the actual print of the dress — splashed with a charming, all-over floral print, now in a summery sage green hue — it looks a lot more expensive and high-end than it actually is.

The material itself is also super lightweight and breathable, which is ideal in warmer temperatures.

Hot off the press, the dress is fully stocked and available in a wide range of sizes (8 to 20), however we don't think it will be around for long.

Brand-new to John Lewis, there's only a handful of reviews, but even then they're all positive with shoppers overjoyed with the fit, fabric and style of the dress.

  • "This dress is such a flattering fit and very stylish. Lovely material and subtle print."

  • "Fits wonderful and so comfy to wear. Material is very flattering and lightweight. I'm short at 5' and fits perfectly as a maxi dress."

  • "Lovely cool fabric fits true to size and doesn't crease."

The original version of this dress (now sold out) managed to generate over 70 five-star reviews from happy shoppers. To give you an idea of what the latest dress is like, here's what some previous shoppers had to say:

  • "Another great dress from the JL collection! Beautiful material, well made, easy to wear, great fit and perfect length (I'm 5ft 7in) excellent value for money! It's a definite keeper!"

  • "I am really happy with dress. It looks very smart and it is so comfortable. I wore it to a wedding and received many compliments."

  • "This dress is a lovely colour and very comfortable material."

  • "Lovely fabric. Bump friendly dress for my pregnant daughter, which she will be able to use after she has had her baby too."

  • "Ordered this online after seeing it in store. Lovely style and material but I wasn't too sure it would suit me. I was wrong, it's perfect. Nice and light for the warm weather and elasticated waist makes me look less "potato" and more "hourglass". I'd buy it in more colours if they did it, John Lewis please note!"
