When it comes to statement midi dresses there are two prints that rule: leopard and floral print. 

Want to treat yourself to a new on-trend buy, but can't decide between the two patterns? What if we told you there was a dress for that?

The Floral Leopard Shirt Dress from Somerset by Alice Temperley combines two of summer's most popular prints, to create the perfect fusion frock. 

Plus, with its flattering shirt dress silhouette and midi length it's the perfect throw-on style for any occasion this summer, from a reunion BBQ to a special occasion. 

Why we rate it:

This dress is practical as well as versatile and beautiful, made from a lightweight fabric that makes it both cool in the summer and easy to layer in the winter. 

Plus, we love that it's a unique, updated take on the leopard print trend.

And it has pockets - the holy grail of dresses.

The dress comes in a midi style (which is almost sold out), as well as a slightly longer maxi design which is available in all sizes - but we'd snap it up quickly! 

What the reviews say:

  • "I love this dress it's so comfy, I've worn with boots & flip flops! I love the style. Would highly recommend this dress. It's bright & colourful, easy to wear & a flattering style."

  • "This dress by Alice Temperley fits perfect and the colours are just lovely for spring and summer."

  • "I love this dress. Very flattering and feels comfortable. Sadly have not yet had the opportunity to wear it to go out yet, but hopefully will be able to do so soon. It is the sort of dress that can be dressed up or dressed down."

  • "Lovely dress - it's the second one I've purchased from same designer. Soft, pretty material and the fit is really good. I am a size 14. Delivery was spot on time wise. Will keep eyes out for similar styles in future."
