Say hello to the €40 M&S dress everyone needs in their spring wardrobe

Say hello to the €40 M&S dress everyone needs in their spring wardrobe.

It may still be winter, but we've already got our sights set on the warmer weather - and the fabulous wardrobe that comes with it.

After all, there's nothing wrong with a bit of advance planning, is there? Especially now that there is plenty of new season pieces arriving in our favourite shops.

And while we're making an effort to buy sensibly at the moment (and don't want to spend our entire paycheque), there are a couple of items that we just have to have.

Like this floral waisted midi dress from Marks & Spencers, which would instantly brighten up any spring wardrobe.

Oh, and did we mention the best part? It's only €40.

Midi dresses are one of our favourite wardrobe staples - and have been for the last little while. After all, they're super flattering, comfortable and the perfect solution for when you're sick to death of wearing tights (kind of like we are now).

And while it is technically more of a spring/summer dress, it could definitely still work for the wintry weather as well. Just pair it with a neutral cardigan, a big cosy coat and your favourite pair of ankle boots.

"An intricate floral ditsy print adds a retro look to this blouson sleeve midi dress," the retailer said of the piece, which features a high neck and shirred cuffs.

Another piece we have our eye on for the warmer weeks ahead is the floral tie waisted mini dress from Marks & Spencers - which also costs €40.

"Blast away the blues with this bold floral mini dress," the retailer said of the piece. "Gently gathered at the waist and cuffs for a slightly fitted profile. Long blouson sleeves and wide ruffle hem for a floaty look."
