A good wear-anywhere summer dress is worth its weight in gold.

Marks & Spencer has already provided us with so much summer inspiration, including Holly Willoughby's summer edit, but this floral midi dress might end up earning the best cost-per-wear potential due to its dress-up, dress-down quality.

Ideal for any occasion, M&S has created the perfect summer jersey dress, and it comes in at a very reasonable £25.

Why we rate it:

Not only is the midi dress’ vibrant floral pattern perfect for summer, its jersey stretch fabric is ideal for keeping comfortable in warmer weather, too.

A slight stretch to the jersey fabric makes it the ultimate thrown-on, easy-to-wear piece, that as some fans have pointed out, is “perfect to throw in a suitcase” as it doesn’t crease.

The pink floral dress is cut in a regular fit (not too tight, not too loose) and features a tier at the waist for a flattering silhouette and a tier at the skirt for elegant shaping.

A round neck and short, T-shirt style sleeves keep the look modest, whilst remaining cool in warmer climes.

The stylists at M&S have paired the jersey midi dress with beige strappy sandals and a straw raffia bag, perfect for both warmer holidays and summer events.

For more dressed-down, throw-on-and-go days, try pairing the floral dress with a pair of white trainers, like Marks & Spencer Insider Nicola Dougan, who added a vibrant green macrame crossbody bag to her Bank Holiday look.

What the reviews say:

So far, shoppers have been singing the dress’ praises, with over 70 five-star reviews. Fans of the floral midi dress have been complimenting its jersey fabric for ease, as well as its gorgeous colour, and have recommended getting your usual dress size as it fits “true to size”.

Whilst we think the £25 must-have has an immediate add-to-basket quality, its good to know that this summer dress holds up in the real world, too.
