If, as lockdown restrictions ease, you’re looking for a wear-everywhere wardrobe update that ticks every single trend box, Andrea McLean has just done you an enormous favour.
On Monday’s edition of the ITV show, the Loose Women star showcased a gorgeous monochrome midi dress with balloon sleeves, a square neckline and a subtle split up the side. Paired with simple jewellery and her signature blow-dry, it was a fashion match made in heaven as she presented the programme alongside Denise Welch, Linda Robson, and Kéllé Bryan.
Now we’ve discovered that the dress is not only a high street hit from Topshop, it’s in the sale, and you can get your hands on it for just £20. Andrea, we are forever in your debt.
The only bad news is that it looks like word is already out when it comes to the purse-friendly design, as there are only limited sizes in stock on the Topshop website. However, if you do manage to snap one up, we predict it’ll become a fast favourite all year round.
Not only will the lightweight mesh fabric and floaty silhouette see you through a summer of picnics, barbecues and garden parties while the sun is still shining, add a pair of opaque tights and some ankle boots for autumn and it’ll instantly have a new lease of cold-weather life.
This isn’t the only Topshop dress Andrea has brought to our attention in recent weeks – at the end of June, she was also spotted in a chic puff-sleeve number from the retailer that perfectly taps into this season’s ongoing pink phenomenon (sparked by the viral H&M pink dress that’s all over Instagram right now, ICYMI).
Sadly the pink design isn’t in the sale this time around, but if the Mesh Balloon Midi is sold out in the size you need, we highly recommend checking out the full array of discounts, as there are plenty more beautiful bargains to be had.
