If you're looking for a versatile midi dress that won't break the bank, is super flattering, luxe-looking, and confidence-boosting — then have we got news for you.
For only £20, New Look's new-in Black Check Belted Midaxi Shirt Dress ticks all of the boxes and is racking up complimentary reviews.
Complete with a classic shape and trendy print, it's perfect as we enter into autumn and winter, and can easily be dressed up or down, meaning you'll get plenty of wear.
Why we rate it
Belted shirt dresses are a great classic staple to have in your wardrobe, as you can do the dress up for a smart work silhouette, or undo a few buttons to make it more casual for a date night or drinks with friends.
The monochrome check print is contemporary and makes it look way more expensive than the mere £20 price tag. It's also available in a wide range of sizes, from size six to 22 (however, we don't think it will stay that way for long).
The sleeves, that are slightly puffed at the shoulder with an elasticated cuff, help give the dress a blouson shape. While the matching belt adds to the overall luxe vibe and means you can cinch yourself in at the waist for a flattering silhouette.
You can easily change up the style of the dress to suit many occasions. Whether that's trainers for a weekend coffee catch-up, or bold jewellery and heels for when you're going from desk to dinner.
