If I had to pick one thing & Other Stories does best, it’d be dresses. I may turn to the high-street hero for many other things too—like cute knits and expensive-looking coats—but it’s the brand’s dress offering that consistently blows me away, and I’m a shopping expert. From pretty floral styles to going-out minis and throw-on midis, it’s always the first place on the high street I send my friends when they come to me asking for dress-shopping advice. So when I found myself getting a little tired of my winter layers recently and starting to think about some easy spring updates I could incorporate into my wardrobe right now, it should come as no surprise that I started in the & Other Stories dress section.
Of course, it wasn’t long before I came across a dress that couldn’t be better for wearing right now. And since I know a lot of you similarly have your eyes on the season ahead (spring officially starts in a week, people), I thought I’d share this new-in knitted midi wrap dress before it inevitably sells out.

So what makes it so great? Well, being knitted means it will still keep the current chill out, yet the creamy colour feels fresh and spring-ready. The wrap shape is really adaptable to a range of body shapes and looks great with bare legs as we transition through the seasons. Plus, it feels polished enough for office days paired with boots and even date nights, for which I’d probably add some chunky gold jewellery, but also comfy for weekends with easy trainers. Knit dresses are inherently versatile, and although they’ve been a big trend over the last couple of years, this style is definitely classic enough to last many more seasons to come. See? I told you it was good.
