Move Over, Polka Dots—There's a New Rival for Summer's It Dress

Whether it’s because summer came early this year or due to the high street’s strong dress game, 2018 has been the year of the It frock. And if Instagram’s latest obsession is anything to go by, that’s not about to change anytime soon.

Topshop’s polka dots, Warehouse’s white linen dress and, of course, that green floral-print midi from ASOS have all had their moment in the spotlight, but this week, it’s all about the rust-coloured pinafore dress still in stock at & Other Stories.

We’ve seen earthy shades increasingly creeping into the wardrobes of street stylers over the past few weeks, and it seems the trend is about to reach fever pitch thanks to this buttoned midi.

With its square neckline, thick crossover straps and gathered waist, this minimalistic dress ticks a lot of boxes for a cult buy. The button details are a key trend for summer 2018 too (Zara is all over it).

Ideal for summer day-tripping (as already demonstrated nicely by a stylish clutch of vacationing Instagrammers), it’s also the perfect length and shape for dressing up with a pair of heels or espadrilles. If you’re trying to pack light this year, then this versatile dress has to be on your holiday packing list.
