If you haven't done it already, it's finally time to make the wardrobe shift from winter to summer - and boy, have we been waiting for this moment.

We've been on high alert for new summer dresses to fill our hangers, from printed designs and polka dot, to classic plain styles, midi, maxi, puff sleeve, short sleeve - you name it, we want it.

There is one very high on our radar, though - Marks and Spencer's Pure Cotton Lace Insert Midaxi Smock Dress, which is selling out fast.

Why we rate it

The Pure Cotton Lace Insert Midaxi Smock Dress has caught our attention.

The stylish design is ideal for the summer months. It is a midaxi length, which is a happy medium between midi and maxi length, and boasts a relaxed fit.

This dress has an on-trend smock style, and subtle tiered detail with lace trim. It also features a stylish square neck.

The dress is made from sustainably sourced cotton - and not only is the breathable fabric a plus for us, it's also lined, an even bigger tick box, as it provides extra coverage.

It is an easy-to-wear wardrobe staple that can be worn on its own, styled with a belt to cinch in your waist, or paired with trainers or sandals. But it can also be layered over a t-shirt for chillier weather, complete with a denim jacket - the options are endless.

The Smock Dress comes in black and winter white, both of which are available in short, regular and long lengths. The design ranges in size from 6 to 24, depending on the style. But sizes are selling out fast.

The dress retails for £45, and it's set to be the one item we live in all summer long.

What the reviews say

If the fact the Pure Cotton Lace Insert Midaxi Smock Dress has almost sold out is not proof enough this number is a must-have, then maybe the glowing reviews will help.

  • "Very happy with this dress, true to size, great quality fabric and not see through due to full lining. Good width straps mean you can wear a proper bra with this dress too. I bought long length, I'm 5' 9" and it is the perfect midaxi length."

  • "The dress is beautiful on, the exact size on, looks great with wedges and trainers and has pockets, and even better price when using sparks dress offer and vouchers."

  • "I bought this having seen someone on instagram modelling it. It is lovely but do think the sizing is on the large side. I have sized down and there still is plenty of room. Lining is to the bottom so no need to worry about being see through and there are pockets too."
