It's officially dress season and with the weather slowly warming up, what better time than now to invest in a new midi.

We've just spotted a new-in design at John Lewis that has a flattering fit, stylish pattern and luxury-looking details, which can easily be dressed up for a special summer occasion, as well as be worn for everyday use with trainers and a denim jacket.

Don't just take our word for it, the John Lewis Bamboo Print Trapeze Dress is already racking up five-star reviews with shoppers saying they love the fresh print, soft light fabric, as well as its versatility.

One customer said they "will definitely get plenty of wear from this beautiful dress", while another added it's "a perfect addition to my wardrobe".

Plus, coming in at £65, it won't break the bank and the cost per wear will be sure to assure you it was a worthy investment fairly quickly.

Why we rate it

Available in sizes eight to 20, John Lewis shoppers have raved about its true to size fit, that's comfortable and smart in equal measure.

It features a bamboo leaf print with long sleeves and a v-neckline that's flattering for larger busts. Little luxury-looking details also include elasticated subtle blouson sleeves and frill detail on the collar.

And lets not forget about the pockets. After all, who doesn't love a dress with pockets?

Designed in a trapeze style, it's fitted at the waist, then flares into a subtle A-line, skimming over your hips for a flattering fit.

One shopper has already worn it to a spring wedding and said she got "so many compliments".

Worried about the long sleeves during summer? It's lightweight, thanks to the naturally derived viscose blend, which shoppers say "feels expensive".

  • "Finally managed to find a dress for a family wedding that isn't wrap or tiered style. Really pleased with the cut style colour and material. Will definitely get plenty of wear from this beautiful dress."

  • "Versatile dress that looked great with boots and denim jacket for casual look but stylish outfit for day or night."

  • "Lovely fresh print, soft light fabric, pretty cuff detail and pockets. Good value for money too."

  • "Could be worn for lots of different occasions and dressed up or down, very pleased with it. A perfect addition to my wardrobe.
