Wrap dresses have always held a special place in our hearts – and our wardrobes. A good wrap dress will work for any occasion, from formal affairs like weddings to the office and picnics in the park, and this year, it looks like Marks & Spencer has got summer dressing all wrapped up, because customers on Instagram are going wild for one particular design that ticks all of these boxes and then some.
The piece in question is a blue v-neck printed dress with angel sleeves from M&S’s Per Una line, and was beautifully modelled by influencer Erica Matthews, who paired it with a pair of nude square-toed mules and a posy of flowers for effortless warm weather chic.
Her picture quickly racked up thousands of likes and hundreds of comments from shoppers who said she’d instantly convinced them to invest in the item. ‘OK, I’ve had my eye on this dress for weeks and she makes it look SO GOOD ?❤️?,’ said one commenter, while another agreed: ‘That picture is beautiful – the dress looks amazing on her.’
Many others even called for Erica’s pictures to used on the M&S listing: ‘You need to get this lady on your website. This dress looks sensational on her and she looks sensational in the dress,’ wrote a third. ‘Utterly stunning.’
If you too have been swayed by Erica’s post, you’ll be pleased to hear that the dress is still in stock, priced at a rather purse-friendly £39.50 and available in sizes 6-24 – the perfect investment for all of the socially distanced outdoor meet-ups we’ll be attending if the sun decides to stick around.
Those who’ve already snapped one up have given the dress an average of more than 4 out of five stars. ‘I love the dress, the colour is so pretty and the style so flattering,’ says one happy reviewer. ‘I wish all my purchases were so satisfying!’
