You know the one – the printed frock that’s dominating your Insta feed RN

River Island’s frayed hem jeans, M&S’s leopard heels, Zara’s embroidered bomber; it’s fair to say we’ve been treated to more hero buys this season than ever before. But now, we’ve found the frock to end all frocks. Part of Dorothy Perkins’s fash ed-adored AW16 haul, this dress has only just dropped on site and we’ve already spied it on the stylish likes of The Frugality’s Alex Stedman. Which can only be a good thing. In case you were in any doubt, we’ve laid down 7 reasons why you need this dress in your life.

1. It’s £45.
2. It may be one dress but it ticks off FOUR major trends. Oriental? Check. Blown-up blooms? Sure. Go-faster stripes? You bet. Exaggerated full sleeves? IT’S A FASHION FULL HOUSE.
3. It’s £45.
4. As previously mentioned, it’s fast become a firm fave amongst Insta’s most stylish. We suggest you buy it now, before it inevitably sells out.
5. It’s still just £45…
6. Midi length, long sleeves and an empire cut? It’s in contention for <the> most flattering dress of all time.
7. So convinced are we that you’ll L.O.V.E it, if you’re not currently hotfooting it to your local DP store or adding this dress to your cyber basket, we’ll eat our (metaphorical) hats.
