Asos dress

Updating your wardrobe with just one key piece this summer? Consider this cotton maxi cut-out dress from ASOS, but get it quick before it sells out.

Sometimes it takes just a handful of influencers to wear a high street garment for the trend to suddenly explode onto our Instagram feeds. And then, as if by magic, all the stylish females (whose wardrobes we love to covet) have purchased it overnight.

This summer, it looks like there’s a new dress having a full blown sartorial movement on social media – and it’s got the added bonus of being made from 100% cotton.

The ASOS DESIGN shirred bustier maxi dress, in a checked seersucker print, has serious wardrobe appeal. It’s one of those dresses that is the perfect go-to for those unexpected British days when the barometer soars past 25 degrees.

Transitioning from your spring to summer wardrobes can be quite a shock at first, especially when it goes from torrential rain one day to being gloriously hot the next.

This dress, an easy throw-on style, is sure to solve all warm weather wardrobe dilemmas. Pair with either trainers or a low heeled sandal, with or without ankle socks, hair up or down. This is an anything goes dress – aka the hero of our summer city and vacation wardrobes. 

Crafted from a seersucker cotton fabric, with a subtle texture throughout, this dress gets extra bonus points for being relatively crease free — a perk for the summer suitcase.

Open backs or cutout details rarely feature or feel appropriate in daytime dresses, but with a ribbon tie this cut out doesn’t feel exposed — and could be worn with a top underneath. 

The checked print, with lemon yellow running through, is perfect for summer and (perhaps naturally) highly Instagrammable.

And, sidenote, it also comes in a pastel mint polka dot version, or for the more print shy, in plain black.

Basically, this dress is everything your wardrobe — and your Instagram feed — has been missing. 

Be sure to snap it up before it sells out. Because at £38, it’s also a steal. Get it while you can. 

ASOS now have a dedicated sustainable sourcing team, which now consists of eleven sustainability experts; the company have an ambition and commitment to embedding sustainability across all of the ASOS brands, that includes its premium ASOS White range.
