She's the latest celebrity to join the Rixo fan club

Remember The OC? Of course you do! Well all these years later, Rachel Bilson - AKA Summer Roberts - looks as amazing as ever, and if you follow her on Instagram you'll know she's got a seriously enviable wardrobe.

Her most recent look is a dress by one of our favourite British clothing brands, Rixo, and although it's early to call it, we think this might just be the best summer dress we've seen so far. Between the ditsy red floral print, cream background and flattering little sleeves, it's a great all-rounder.

The flattering shape makes it a great option if you're looking for stylish dresses to hide a tummy, and it's exactly the kind of midi that you can dress down with your best white trainers or style up for any big occasion you've got coming up in the next few months.

One Rixo customer commented "Lovely dress - beautiful material as always when it’s a Rixo dress. Yes the prices are steep but then you have a dress you can wear and wear to any event or occasion - dress it up or down- for years to come. It’s the go to dress always."

Rachel is by no means the first celebrity fan of Rixo's designs. In fact, she's following the lead of Gillian Anderson, Hannah Waddingham, Holly Willoughby and the Princess of Wales, no less.

Rachel also posted an image on Instagram of herself wearing some fisherman sandals like the ones we've spotted on Helen Skelton recently, and we can't wait to see what she'll wear next.

But if the real deal Rixo is a bit more than you were hoping to spend on a summer dress, we've rounded up three great lookalikes that will do the trick too.
