When it comes to the perfect pattern, you can't beat a bit of animal print.

However, we must admit, it's hard to keep justifying traditional leopard print when we have a wardrobe full of it.

Which is why, John Lewis' take on animal print with this relaxed green dress is our dress of the day - and one that will slide with ease into any wardrobe.

Here's why we'll be wearing it around town and country all summer-long. 

Why we rate it:

The viscose fabric makes this dress breathable and lightweight, so perfect for summer.

Plus, the relaxed fit makes it a comfy piece whether you're jetting about the city or relaxing in a friend's garden.

Pair it with slider sandals, block heels or even trainers for a cool, casual look.

It also has pockets, which let's face it, is always a bonus in our book. 

What the reviews say:

  • "Very on trend dress. I was worried it was too baggy but it floats nicely and having pockets enables you to shape it to you or swish it around. Perfect for hiding those lockdown extra lbs!"

  • "Pleasantly surprised with the softness of the fabric, which gives a lovely drape. The first lightly elasticated seam is above the waist, just under the bust. At 5ft 4in the hem is at my ankles."

  • "It fits true to size and is so stylish. I wore mine with a pair of white trainers and a black leather jacket and I felt so good and on trend."

  • "The fabric and pattern are lovely and it's great value for money."
