Shoppers are obsessed with the M&S ‘golden dress of dreams’

If there’s one thing that Marks & Spencer’s fashion team know how to nail, it’s a midi dress. All year long they’re been bringing out gorgeous prints and patterns in flattering silhouettes that sell out in a matter of seconds – and their latest autumnal number is one of our favourites to date.

A snap of the long sleeved ochre design was first previewed by the brand’s PR team on Instagram all the way back in June, to the delight of fans who declared it ‘gorgeous‘ and ‘on my wish list.’

Now, four months later, those wishes have come true – it’s finally available to buy, and shoppers can barely contain their excitement.

‘I love this dress!’ one declared, while another posted: ‘OMG I have been checking every day since you first posted it months ago!! Got it!’

‘Yes!! Have been waiting for this,’ a third echoed, followed by a fourth who simply commented: ‘What a beaut.’

Not only is the golden garment a subtle way of hitting A/W 18’s roarsome animal print trend, the skater cut, midi length and sleek tie neck detail provide an exceptionally elegant finish.

M&S say that it will ‘style perfectly with a pair of high boots and a bold pair of earrings’ – a versatile look which will carry you through this season and beyond. For added definition, you could also cinch the waist with a coordinating belt.
