Love dresses? Looking for something new? You’ve come to the right place, as it seems there’s a new contender for best spring frock and it’s not of the floral variety. According to Instagram, the print set to knock floral dresses off the top spot is the polka-dot. Now, let us be clear on this, we will always rely on a dainty floral dress (or two) to see us through the balmy summer months, but there’s something about the new wave of spotty dresses sweeping through our social feed that feels fresh and new and oh-so-perfect for our warm-weather wardrobes.
Be warned: the polka-dot dress has already reached cult status. We reported only last week that Topshop’s silky monochrome midi flew off the virtual rails almost as soon as it landed, which means you won’t want to hang around once you’ve finally found that all-important frock. Luckily, there’s still plenty of covetable styles that are every bit as chic as Topshop’s sell-out number thanks to the likes of Mango, ASOS and Warehouse. Whether that’s a navy midi for work, a silky slip for layering under tees when the weather cools, or perhaps a swishy statement number for something a little more formal – there’s no shortage of options here.
