There are some real gems on the Great British high street. Whether you’re a regular shopper who loves to pound the streets or someone who keeps a keen eye out online for those hero buys, the high street is responsible for some of our most-loved, most-worn wardrobe items.

& Other Stories in particular is one of the most reliable affordable brands for those easy, stylish options that stand the test of time. And it’s not unusual at any fashion event to spot multiple editors in the brand’s expensive-looking designs. It’s the dresses in particular that the Who What Wear team are constantly crushing on, especially when spring and summer arrive—in fact, there’s one style that has long been the most popular & Other Stories dress among our team, as well as across the country: the Puff Sleeve Linen Midi Dress.

The beauty of Stories’ Puff Sleeve Linen Midi Dress is that its design works for a number of body shapes and it's just one of those versatile styles you can wear to everything—office days, brunches, weekend wanderings, holidays, date nights, summer parties and weddings, to name just a few. One friend of mine is even wearing it as a bridesmaid dress this summer. The problem is it’s so popular that the style sells out fast whenever it lands in stock. Luckily, the brand has cottoned on to how good this particular stye is and has just re-released this summer in plenty of new prints. The best bit? Some of the iterations are currently reduced in the brand's summer sale.

If you’re also a fan of this easy dress, keep scrolling to shop the exact style (while it’s still available) and see more of & Other Stories’ best dresses this season.
