I recently went on a month-long holiday to Spain and Portugal and, thus, have depleted my vacation days for the rest of the summer. Why am I telling you this? Because I have to spend the remainder of the season dressing (at least somewhat) office-appropriate. The despair! The horror! Just kidding. Thanks to oh-so-chic frocks like The Tobie Button-Front Pleated Shirt Dress by Exquise from Anthropologie, dressing for your 9-to-5 has never looked so good.

BTW, this flattering frock already sold out once — but luckily, Anthropologie restocked it for all of us dress-loving folks. Scroll down to find out why this dress has scored more than 8,300 "loves" from shoppers and shop even more cute summer dresses.

In my opinion, The Tobie, one of Anthropologie's latest sell-out styles, is this summer's version of its viral Somerset Dress — here's why:

Firstly, it's casual enough to wear to work, yet styled with a cute pair of ballet flats or heels, it could easily become part of your summer wedding guest wardrobe.

Secondly, it's flattering on all body types. The pleated shirt dress is available in petite, standard and plus sizes up to size 3X. It also beautifully cinches in your waist, giving you the appearance of an hourglass figure.

Thirdly, and perhaps most similar to its Somerset cousin, Anthropologie reviewers are beyond obsessed with button-front Tobie, dubbing it "perfection in a dress."

"It's classy, elegant, professional, and can be dressed up or down," writes one shopper. "Such a good, high-quality staple."

Another reviewer adds, "Do not hesitate" to buy it. It's "better than I expected [...] very flattering."

Across the board, reviewers say the Tobie is "easy to dress up or down," making it the "perfect dress for every occasion."

"This dress hugs your body and runs true to size," writes one shopper. Plus, it's "easy to wear with sneakers or sandals."

One thing to note: while Anthropologie reviewers say the dress "reinforces an hourglass silhouette," some find the style "overwhelming" on petite figures and say it runs "a bit long."
