If you cast your mind back to 2019, you may remember a certain polka dot Zara midi dress that went viral and became a fashion phenomenon for its timeless print and ultra flattering silhouette.

Well, now five years on, there's a newer, more sophisticated version in town - and this time, it's all thanks to Marks & Spencer.

We've been keeping an eye on M&S's new-in 2024 dress range, which is filled with hard-working styles you'll be glad to have in your wardrobe this year. However, this Floral Round Neck Midi Tea Dress with three-quarter length sleeves and a swishy midi-length hem is the real winner right now, as it's the best-selling dress on M&S's website.

It comes in three different patterns, two of which are spring-ready floral prints, as well as a classic monochrome polka dot pattern - all of which are selling extremely quickly.

We predict this timeless midi dress will be sold out by spring, snap it up while you can.

£40 at M&S

Customers are raving about the dress, which has garnered an average of 4.7 stars out of five. One shopper described it as a “lovely, flattering dress”, while another said they receive “lots of compliments” when they wear it.

Why we rate it

At just £39.50, this dress is the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe as it's made from a lightweight and breathable fabric. However, you can certainly wear it in the colder month by layering tights underneath and a cardigan over it.

The fitted bodice gives it a chic, structured look, while the slightly puffed sleeves adds a luxury touch. The skirt is finished with a swishy hem so that it looks smart, while also ensuring a flattering silhouette.

It's available across M&S' petite, regular and long ranges, so is suitable for all sizes. (Marks & Spencer)

The classic dress can also be dressed up for a special occasion with a pair of heels and a clutch bag. We think one of the floral numbers would make a great wedding guest dress option.

It also earns bonus points in our book for being crease-free, which means less ironing involved - which we love.

What the reviews say

This throw-on-and-go dress has earned a number of rave reviews on the M&S website for its flattering silhouette, silk-like material and stand-out patterns. Several shoppers said the fit of the dress was “perfect”, however others noted that it's slightly longer than usual M&S midi dresses, so if you're petite you may want to ensure you buy the 'petite' length option.

  • “Lovely dress. Fits perfectly. Got lots of compliments.”

  • “A comfy, well-fitting dress. Looks great with a navy jacket. I ordered a regular length. I’m 5’5” but found it a little too long; nearly ankle-length. The petite length was better for me.”

  • “I’m thrilled to bits with this dress, bought it in a 14 long and it’s a perfect length and fit. Material is gorgeous and doesn’t crease, would definitely recommend.”

  • “Lovely dress to wear in spring. I love the 3/4 sleeves and length is good just past calf. I ordered regular length and I'm 5'5". Overall I think a lovely flattering dress."

  • Great value for money. Comfortable dress to wear, suitable for day or night."

  • "Lovely dress for early spring. Rather long for regular size but will be elegant to wear."
