With holiday season in full swing and hotter weather on the horizon, it's safe to assume that the majority of us have switched out our chunky knits and long sleeves for a stock of updated summer dresses. Yet to land on the right one? John Lewis has only gone and done it again with a new collection of quality, stylish dresses. But there's one style in particular that's caught our eye, this Floral Print Shirred Dress, £65.

Quick overview

The latest iteration of a previous John Lewis dress that sold out in record time, it features a comfy floaty shape, shirred elasticated waist and flattering neckline. Originally available in a dusty blue colourway, the new dress comes in a summery sage green with a chic all-over floral print.

Brand-new to John Lewis, reviews for the dress have already started flooding in, with shoppers hailing it as "very stylish", and "so comfy to wear".

Great for summer, this sage green pick is designed with flared sleeves, a shirred waist and floaty, tiered skirt for a relaxed yet put-together look.

If the original version is anything to go by, we don't see this style hanging around for long so be quick if you want to get your hands on one of the best dresses of the season.

First things first, the shape of this dress is perfect for summer. Designed with flared short sleeves, a V-neckline and floaty, tiered skirt, it's perfect for throwing on with a pair of white trainers or sandals for a chic summertime look, or some heels for an elevated evening outfit.

The shirred waist is definitely a standout feature, creating a super flattering and comfortable cut that cinches you in, providing a gorgeous hourglass shape. Not just that, there's even pockets! Super discreet, there's two handy side pockets, a lovely and functional design detail.

Then there's the actual print of the dress — splashed with a charming, all-over floral print, now in a summery sage green hue — it looks a lot more expensive and high-end than it actually is.

The material itself is also super lightweight and breathable, which is ideal in warmer temperatures.

Hot off the press, the dress is fully stocked and available in a wide range of sizes (8 to 20), however we don't think it will be around for long.

Although new to John Lewis, the dress has already managed to rack up an impressive slew of five-star reviews from happy shoppers who are overjoyed with the fit, fabric and style of the dress.

  • "This dress is such a flattering fit and very stylish. Lovely material and subtle print."

  • "Lovely dress, very attractive and fits well. It doesn't crease either which is a real bonus."

  • "This is a lovely, flattering dress. Ideal for packing for a holiday. The colour, style and length are correct for a lady of any age. I purchased this dress for an upcoming holiday and I was delighted with the quality and excellent price."

  • "A lightweight dress perfect for the hot days. The sleeves and midi length give protection against the sun . A relaxed look and easy to wear."

  • "So well-made and comfortable, and [has] pockets. Great length sleeves, cinched in at the waist for great shape, gives style and always gets compliments. Great with white trainers or heels… it's a winner."

  • "Fits wonderful and so comfy to wear. Material is very flattering and lightweight. I'm short at 5' and fits perfectly as a maxi dress."

  • "Lovely cool fabric fits true to size and doesn't crease."
