When not one but four celebs (and a fashion blogger) snap up the same Sosandar dress, you know you’re looking at a bona fide ‘It’ buy...

The Sosandar shirt dress everyone is wearing right now, £79


We don’t mean to blow our own trumpet or anything, but if you buy one thing this season, it really should be our shirt dress. Aside from the fact that we could wax lyrical about the merits of this wardrobe staple until the cows come home – we’ll spare you, but, in a nutshell; it’s flattering, easy and works for pretty much any occasion – ours also happens to have been worn by rather a lot of famous faces recently. Christine Lampard has it, Michelle Ackerley has it, Loose Women co-stars Saira Khan and Jane Moore have it, and your summer wardrobe should have it too. Lightweight, striking the perfect smart/casual balance and in three on-trend options, you’ll wear it right through to next season.

Unsurprisingly – being the print of the season – the gingham version of our shirt dress is proving seriously popular. The One Show presenter (and Sosandar mega-fan) Michelle Ackerley was first to snap it up, wearing it to present the show and on Instagram. The oversized checks shake off any schoolgirl connotations, giving the classic print a modern update.

It’s safe to say the Loose Women ladies definitely got the memo, with Christine Lampard, Saira Khan and Jane Moore (below) all wearing our shirt dress on screen. Combining a shirt dress design – a key summer shape – with vibrant coral, oversized florals and monochrome gingham, it’s been cleverley designed to tick off two trends at once for maximum impact with minimum effort. Basically everything you want from a summer dress.

Journalist and presenter Jane Moore and Bertie, stylist and one-half of blogging duo Mother Shoppers have also been spotted rocking our gingham frock. While Christine added glamour with sexy barely there sandals, Bertie proves our dress works off-duty too, creating a cool look with statement silver flats. In fact, the footwear options are endless with this one; flat sandals, crisp white trainers, wedges, platforms and even ankle boots. Because it’s glorious now, but who knows what the good old British weather will bring next?

So, now that we’ve proved you can wear out shirtdress everywhere and with everything, all you need to do is decide between floral, gingham or coral. Or, you know, just buy all three…
