This £39 Topshop dress is set to be the buy of the season

Pretty summer dresses come and go, but sometimes you find one that’s so great it becomes a staple in your warm weather wardrobe for years after you purchase it.

We suspect that this might be the case with Topshop’s new Sicily stripe one shoulder midi dress, a statement outfit that is already proving to be one of the most popular pieces of the season, even before the temperatures really begin to rise.

Not only is the classic stripy print one that will never go out of style, the off-the-shoulder shape, waist belt detail, and tiered skirt all add something a little extra to the piece, making it a showstopper that’s suitable for almost every occasion – summer weddings, picnics in the park, beach holidays and more.

We’re not the only ones that have fallen hard for the item – in fact, several sizes have already gone completely out of stock on Topshop’s website, and it’s already earned its badge of honour as a ‘trending item’ on the listing.

Customers on Topshop’s Instagram account, where the brand has shared plenty of styling inspo for the Sicily dress, say they are ‘obsessed’, with one writing: ‘Definitely need this gorgeous dress for my holidays.’

‘I’ve already added this to my favourites! Love it,’ a second agreed, and a third posted: ‘Well I need this in my life for sure!’

Others have already added it to their baskets and snapped it up, with one fan posting: ‘Got mine this morning ???’ and another echoing: ‘On its way tomorrow ❤️❤️’.

If you want to join them, you’ll need to be quick – we’d suggest trying your luck in store if your size is unavailable online.

Alternatively, you could wait and see what might follow – other commenters love the Sicily so much they’ve requested that Topshop even make the dress in a range of other colours, and we’ve got our fingers crossed that the brand will take note!
