Spring in the UK can be a tough time deciding what to wear – it’s too hot for coats but too cold for shorts, which is why a knit dress is the perfect compromise.
While searching for classic pieces that are suitable for fluctuating temperatures, we noticed that a sold-out dress is Finally back in stock from John Lewis.
With rave reviews from customers saying it’s ‘simple and indulgent’, as well as perfectly pairing ‘comfort and elegance’, we’re sure this classic black dress won’t be around long.
It’s versatile, forgiving, flattering and for just £22, it’s sure to be an incredibly affordable addition to your mid-season wardrobe.
Perfect for the office, travel or weekend plans, it’s an ideal, lightweight fabric that will get plenty of wear now as summer is fast approaching.
Because we value it
This soft jersey dress with a scoop neckline is something you can rock again and again throughout the year.
During that transition from spring to summer, it’s a useful piece that you can pair with sneakers. Simply throw on a leather jacket or blazer when temperatures drop a little more at night.
Later in the year, when it transitions from summer to fall, you can wear it over thick tights or leggings.
The fit is also extremely flattering – it flows beautifully on the body, without clinging anywhere.
The dress, made of 95% EcoVero viscose and 5% elastane, is also easy to maintain, as it is machine washable at 30°C.
And if you put it on a coat rack and hang it to dry, hopefully it won’t need much ironing, if at all.
This is a big win if we ever heard one!
