‘Lovely’ dress with pockets is similar to Duchess Sophie’s midi style


Sophie Wessex is known for her fashionable wardrobe and she proved this again after choosing to wear a dazzling green dress while attending the Royal Windsor Flower Show. The floral midi dress is covered in daisies making it the perfect match to wear as she teamed up with Alan Titchmarsh and Dame Mary Berry for the event. 

Her exact dress from Me+Em is now sold-out, however, we’ve found a very similar style at Phase Eight – and it’s £226 cheaper. The Ava Floral Midaxi Dress typically retails for £119 but is on sale for £69, saving shoppers £50. Both dresses share a similar pattern, three quarter length sleeves and drop midi hem skirt. 

Stocked in sizes six to 18, shoppers can also choose from midi or short length which is perfect if you have a petite frame and are constantly having to get your dresses hemmed so they don’t drag on the floor. 

The Ava Floral Midaxi Dress can be paired with everything from flat sandals to summer wedges just how Sophie has worn hers. It’s also a great layering piece and would work with a smart jacket or chic waistcoat. If you want to steal her style, these £69 Lloret Suede Espadrille Sandals from John Lewis are the perfect pick alongside this £25 Waist Belt from Marks and Spencer. 

Shoppers are wearing theirs with all kinds of accessories – one person said: “Lovely dress, great fit and very comfortable. I’ve worn it dressed up with heels and casual with boots or trainers.” 

Another customer wrote: “Unusual dress for me to buy – nice colours. Doesn’t need ironing!” 

And a third added: “I saw this on an Instagram and fell in love with it. Close up, the fabric is very pretty indeed. Lovely dress and the oh-so-wonderful pockets!”

However, the midi length has been described as ‘much longer than shown on photo’ and ‘a little long’. This Green Ditsy Floral Print Shirt Dress for £38 from Roman Originals is a lovely alternative that people have said is ‘flattering to wear’. 

We are also big fans of the Fat Face Simone Damask Floral Jersey Dress, £49.50, as it comes in two different lengths depending on your height and taste. One shoppers said they ‘wear it loads and get compliments’.
