You’ll want to add Marks & Spencer’s dress of the week to your wardrobe immediately

Sometimes there are so many gorgeous items in Marks & Spencer’s latest drop that it’s hard to know which one to add to your basket first. Luckily, the brand gives its customers a helping hand on its Instagram account, where it often highlights a ‘dress of the week’ that  it predicts will fly off the shelves.

This time around, it’s a classic cut in a print that’s bang on trend – an animal print long sleeve wrap midi dress which ticks all of our season boxes in one fell swoop. Not only is it centred on the palette of spring, neutral beige (just ask Meghan Markle), it’s got animal print, a flattering wrap fit and the perfect hemline for these tricky transitional months.

‘We’re kicking the year off with this gorgeous animal print number,’ Marks & Spencer wrote alongside a snap of the dress featured in a chic layered outfit. ‘This long sleeved shirt dress is perfect for the season and a great way to add print to your wardrobe. Embrace the earthy tones by styling with a classic camel coat and layering over a t-shirt. Finish off your look with a pair of trainers.’

For many followers, it was love at first scroll, with one exclaiming: ‘Ahh I love this outfit 😍’ and a second writing: ‘Love the dress💕’.

‘I think I need this dress,’ a third wrote to a friend, while another was already convinced enough to hit purchase, adding: ‘Just ordered my dress 💕.’

Marks and Spencer's dress of the week Animal Print Long Sleeve Wrap Midi Dress, £49.50, Marks & Spencer

As you might expect from a high-street hero like M&S, the dress is great value, priced at £49.50 – but it’s selling fast, with some sizes already out of stock on the store’s website.

We’ll be wearing ours over long sleeved polo necks when it’s still chilly outside, then migrating to bare legs and statement jewellery when the sun finally shows itself again. The only question that remains is how you will style yours!
