Isabel Spearman, brand and image consultant raved about the Zara shirt dress in her weekly workwear article for theTelegraphonline. She said: "I've been living in Zara's striped version all summer, and I'm constantly stopped on the street by women asking where it is from."
She added: "There's something about the stripes and the cut that is incredibly flattering; I've worn it at the weekend, unbelted with trainers, and for meetings with a tan belt and heels. I love it so much that I bought it in both blue and red."
