Dreamy dresses to shop and wear this month to jump-start your spring (and they’re all under £50).

The weather doesn’t seem to be playing ball but we can certainly welcome the new season with a new dress instead. April marks the beginning of sunnier spring days, al-fresco weddings and park picnics (a girl can dream) but regardless of the cloud cover, we can always find an excuse to wear a pretty dress and there’s no better time to invest than now.

They’re the hero items of your spring/summer wardrobe and feminine frocks are in full bloom on the highstreet with Marks & Spencer’s budding range reigning supreme, from maximalist loud prints to chic monochrome hits you’ll wear on repeat.

Keep scrolling to shop spring’s most wanted dresses that won’t break the bank, from tea dresses to linen dresses and more.

There's always plenty of room in our wardrobe for a pretty new frock and Marks & Spencer's collection covers all bases, from feminine florals to daring animal prints.
