It’s the trend we never saw coming, but could 2020 be the summer of the pink dress? First the £20 H&M version goes viral, popping up on the Instagram feeds of influencers around the world, and now Andrea McLean has found a pink Topshop dress that we’re also planning to add to our wardrobes asap.
Andrea debuted the dress on Monday’s edition of Loose Women, which she presented from a safe social distance with co-stars Denise Welch and Saira Khan, and it was a look that earned her plenty of compliments from viewers when she shared the outfit of the day on Instagram.
‘Beautiful lady that dress is gorgeous,’ wrote one fan, while another posted: ‘Gorgeous – saw you wearing this on tv today, you really suit this colour too.’
We have to agree – not only is the strawberry ice cream shade of pink perfect for summer, the piece also boasts the oversized puff sleeves, button-down front and chic prairie neckline we’ve been coveting for the season ahead. And while the weather may be a little unpredictable these days, it’s also made of linen, so when temperatures shoot back up, it’ll keep you cool on even the most scorching of days.
Considering that it’s essentially all of our dress-based dreams come true, we feared there’d be a hefty price tag for this one, but Topshop has generously priced the design at just £45. Sunglasses and tote bags at the ready, and that’s warm weather dressing sorted in a matter of seconds.
However, we know that pink isn’t for everyone, so we’re pleased to report that Topshop has also made this same gorgeous silhouette in both white and black; ideal for those who prefer their wardrobe to stay monochromatic, or, in the case of the black version, something you can spill picnic foods on without an conspicuous stain in the middle of your skirt.
Hey, we’ve all been there…
