If you're looking to refresh your wardrobe this spring with a handful of considered pieces, we've found a dress from Marks & Spencer's spring 2024 collection that we think you should know about. The Pure Cotton Denim Midi Waisted Dress may be brand new, but it's already racking up five-star reviews and selling out super fast.

In fact, customers have been loving it so much, that in the past week it has risen to become the number two bestseller across the entire online womenswear range.

Available in sizes eight to 22, this versatile denim dress can be dressed up with boots and a blazer or kept casual with trainers and a cardigan.

Smart, stylish and comfortable, we have no doubt this will be a sell-out success very shortly. Perfect for wearing from now until winter, it's a must-have transitional midi that's well worth adding to your basket.

Why we rate it

If you've never owned a denim dress, you'll quickly find that just like your favourite pair of jeans, it will fast become a wardrobe staple you rewear again and again.

M&S' contemporary style has loads of little details, which makes the affordable dress look so much more expensive. We particularly love the front patch pockets, gathered three-quarter sleeves for a blousy shape and zip fastening up the front, so you can have the collar as high or low as you want.

The silhouette is also incredibly flattering thanks to the gathered waist, one shopper even said they receive "so many compliments" when they wear it out.

Another customer added that the denim dress is "a great alternative to wearing jeans".

What the reviews say

It's already proving popular among M&S shoppers, with many five-star reviews praising its fit, versatility and comfort. However, some have recommended sizing down, as it's a roomy design.

  • "This is a lovely dress, comfy and stylish, I had so many compliments. It does come up very big, I am usually 10-12, I ordered 8 and there was still room to spare."

  • "An everyday dress that once on is comfortable, goes with almost everything, yet has a bit of difference with the zip, sleeve and pocket details. Soft fabric with a little bit of weight to it."

  • "Love this dress. A great alternative to wearing jeans. Looks good with trainers or boots. Great value too."

  • "Loved this dress soft denim very good fit and flattering thought the style was good dress it up or a casual look liked it soon as I saw it great buy and a reasonable price."

  • "I’ve seen this zip dress by different brands, all at a much higher price. This denim dress is very affordable, while keeping up with the trend. Would love to have it in a dark denim too."
