John Lewis has revealed its most sold-out item of 2018

John Lewis sells a whole host of fashion items, from a great collection of shoes to beautiful shirts and accessories. However, as stylist.co.uk reports, it was a certain dress that impressed shoppers so much in 2018 that it became the retailer’s most sold-out item.

That’s right; it was the Somerset by Alice Temperley Leopard Print Shirt Dress that took the top spot at John Lewis. So why is this certain style so beloved? We can think of a few reasons…

First off, the animal print design is bang on trend and a largely universally adored look. The shape of the dress is also appealing, with a shirt dress style that’s buttoned through the front and slightly cinched in at the wait. It sits below the knee with a flattering midi length.

Visually, the dress would look beautiful when paired with a range of shoes (from chunky platform sandals to vinyl boots with tights) and can be dressed up or down, making it ideal for any occasion or season.

What’s more, at £99, the price isn’t too scary and remains accessible for most. It also comes in a wide range of sizes, starting at a size 8 and going up to an 18.

There’s little not to love about the dress, which has been given a firm seal of approval by John Lewis shoppers. Attracting women from all around the UK, it has a 4.6 star rating on the retailer’s website, with reviews praising everything from its shape to its print.

And the number one feature everyone is getting most excited about? The pockets. Often difficult to find on formal, smarter dress designs, pockets are super handy to have and make posing for photos just that little bit less awkward.

The best news about all this is that the Alice Temperley design is currently in stock on the John Lewis website in most sizes. Head over now to snap it up.
