We love nothing more than slipping into a cool yet stylish dress, whether we’re running errands, heading to work or going out for dinner.
It’s quick, easy and cooling, as well as simple to style, when all you have to do is throw it on.
The Somerset by Alice Temperley Dot Animal Shirt Dress is the latest dress of the day we think shoppers will want to add to their baskets this summer.
Why we rate it
The Somerset by Alice Temperley Dot Animal Shirt Dress is a stylish number to see you through any occasion this summer, and beyond.
It is made from a soft viscose fabric, emblazoned with a cream, white and black snake-print pattern.
The shirt dress style, which has a collar detail and button front, combined with short flared angel wing sleeves, makes this a versatile look ideal for the office, shopping, or even a weekend brunch.
The midi design is a hugely popular length for dresses this year, as it provides flattering coverage.
We love the cinched-in detail around the waist, which adds a little more shape.
This creation comes in UK dress sizes 8 to 18, although some sizes have already sold out.
The price may be slightly higher than our previous Dress of the Day favourites, as this number retails for £99, but for a designer label, and a special occasion, we think it’s worth splashing out.
What the reviews say
The Somerset by Alice Temperley Dot Animal Shirt Dress has piqued shoppers’ interest, as 13 dresses have been bought in the last 24 hours, according to John Lewis’ website. It’s important to note that some shoppers recommend sizing down by one size, as it’s cut on the large side. Here’s what shoppers have to say:
“A very flattering and comfortable dress. It is very versatile and a lovely cut – I’m looking forward to wearing it a lot this summer!”
“I loved the style of the dress and the fabric.”
“Dress up or dress down. Whatever the occasion this dress will take you there.”
