Customers are going wild over this stunning autumn M&S dress - and it's selling out very fast

Marks & Spencer saw us through the long summer with all sorts of gorgeous dresses, and now they’re back with a standout piece that is driving fans wild.

Though colder temperatures may have you reaching for subtler shades this season, there’s never been a better time to step out in rich jewel shades to warm things up - think of aubergine, emerald green and burned orange as your go-to hues for autumn.

Or for those daring to go slightly brighter, look no further than this stunning golden dress from Marks & Spencer, that has had customers in a frenzy since it was unveiled back in June.

The Animal Print Long Sleeve Skater Midi Dress, priced at £69, has been dubbed the ‘golden dress of dreams’, and features a delicate animal print that will win over even the most leopard print-averse shopper, plus long sleeves and a midi skirt that make this the ideal dress for autumn months.

The cuffs and sleek neckline also make this a standout piece suitable for any occasion - formal or not.

Customers went crazy after the dress finally became available earlier this week, with thousands taking to the company’s Instagram to share their excitement.

‘Yes! Have been waiting for this,’ wrote one customer, while another added, ‘Such a beautiful shape.’

A third person commented, ‘Got it #feelingsmug.’

And a fourth said, 'that's a beaut😍'.

Though this dress would look fabulous alone, we love the styling as selected by the M&S team. Pair your dress with black boots and gold earrings like the model for an on-trend look this season.

Don’t forget to add a chunky belt around the waist for added definition.

Or, for those rarer warm days, you could accessorise with some smart sandals and sunglasses, for a more relaxed, but equally elegant look.

The dress has been made available in a short and regularly length.

It has been flying off the shelves, but there are still a few left in sizes 6-24 - particularly in the regular length. But don’t delay, as we anticipate this dress to sell out very very soon!
