Not to toot our own horn or anything, but generally, when it comes to viral dresses, we tend to spot the winners a mile off—think ASOS's green maxi or the famous polka-dot dress. However, when Topshop released a snake-print pleated maxi dress, we didn't immediately mark it down for mass appeal. How wrong we were.
In the space of a month, we've spotted this statement-making piece literally everywhere in London—worn with everything from trainers and felt hats to strappy heels and beaded bags. Riding the wave of the animal-print revival, Topshop's dress may have maximalist appeal, but we think the secret lies in the flattering fit. A nipped-in waist? Check. Flowy skirt? Check. A cheeky leg slit? You bet.
It also has trans-seasonal appeal, meaning you could totally wear it with boots and a chunky knit come autumn. It doesn't get much better than that. The dress is finally back in stock, but sizes already flying off the shelves, so you better get in there quick. Scroll down to shop the dress.
Style Notes: Personal stylist Kara Tomlinson elevates her Topshop dress with a few well-chosen accessories. We particularly love the Gucci belt.
