Whilst 2019’s ‘It’ dress was very much the iconic Zara polka dot frock and 2020’s ‘It’ dress was, well… probably just a baggy t-shirt worn with leggings, 2021’s has been that New Look midi number. With puff sleeves, a shirred bust, floaty skirt and v on-trend gingham print, the high street style has been seen all over Instagram, most notably in the black and pink designs.
The checkered dress was so popular that it sold out almost instantly when it launches earlier in the year, and not surprising when it cost a purse-friendly £29.99. Now the brand have launched a follow-up range which features the same design in a new selection of colours and prints.
For the same price, you can get your hands on a violet or pastel blue gingham version of the midi dress. There’s also a white and black polka dot design (which tbf has basically sold out already), and a couple of very glorious floral prints which come in red or blush pink.
The dress has also been available in New Look’s Petite and Curve range – although the latest prints and colours aren’t yet stocked in either.
If you missed out the first time round and are keen for a new frock to frolic about in this summer, then be quick because we predict these will fly off the virtual shelves.
We love them because they’re incredible versatile – they look great on all body shapes, and the stretchy bust means they fit well no matter whether you’ve got big boobs or small boobs and they’re practical for breast-feeding or pregnant girls too.
Excellent work, New Look.
