Marks & Spencer’s latest collection for autumn 2020 is certainly full of some big hitters. From the Holly Willoughby-approved ‘it’ coat to Lisa Faulkner’s chic yet practical jumpsuit, celebrities and fashion insiders alike are loving the new-season offering from the high street giant.
And now, Instagrammers are going wild for one particular dress from the new collection. The dress is a floral midi number with long cuffed sleeves and a high neckline, perfect for looking dressed up while staying warm as the temperature cools down. With front pleat detailing, a cinched in waist and a skirt that flares out just the right amount, this is an extremely flattering number; bright florals set against a dark background finish off the dress.
Residing in the brand’s Per Una collection, the M&S floral dress costs £55, making it an affordable purchase for a statement dress. M&S describe is as a ‘midaxi’ dress, which means the hemline is halfway between a midi and a maxi length so should fall just above the ankle, however where it actually lands obviously depends on your height. But while petite women might get more of a maxi vibe and tall girls more of a midi, it’s a beautiful dress either way.
When ‘M&S Insider’ Sam Briones aka @marksandspencer_sam posted a picture to Instagram of herself wearing the M&S floral dress, it quickly racked up over 400 likes and 67 comments (and counting), including: ‘This is a beautiful dress! X x’, ‘LOVE this – just ordered it online’ and ‘This is lovely & in some ways has a vintage look about it’.
And when M&S reposted the picture to their account, the love kept on coming, garnering nearly 10,000 likes and hundreds of comments from shoppers eager to purchase the dress from themselves.
Meanwhile, the reviews on the M&S website are similarly enthusiastic: ‘I bought this today in store having seen the poster. It’s a really beautiful dress that looks more expensive on than on the hanger. Definitely one for taller customers as it is fairly long and contains quite a lot of material. Very versatile and could be dressed up or down and worn with heels, boots or trainers’ said one happy shopper.
