It is a flattering shape, thanks to the fitted top half and elasticated waist which flows into a flared skirt. 

With well-cut short sleeves and a round neck, it falls just above the knee. Plus, it has side pockets, which we all adore.

The dress comes in petite, regular and long lengths, and is available in UK dress sizes 6 to 22. 

If that isn't enough, this Boden number also comes in a whole host of colours and prints (eight, to be exact), including plain black, navy and white stripes, black and white polka dot, bird print, tropical leaf pattern, plain navy, a floral design, as well as navy spot. 

Whether you pair with flip flops, sandals, or trainers, you'll get endless wear out of the Amelie Jersey Dress.

What the reviews say 

The Amelie Jersey Dress has garnered just under 1,000 reviews, and an average of 4.5 out of five stars. Here's what shoppers have to say: 

  • "Every woman should own this dress. Sounds like an overstatement, but every time I wear this I get a compliment from a friend, neighbour or complete stranger. Makes me feel like a million bucks. I'm 5 feet, small waist, wider hips."

  • "I love the Amelie Jersey dress! So comfortable. The exotic bird print is different and cute. The waist band helps hide a bit of a tummy. Would love to buy another!"

  • "Comfortable soft jersey with a ruched waistband which is helpful! Nice to have pockets as well."

  • "This dress is incredibly flattering so comfortable. I get compliments all day long every time i wear it! Super soft, easy to wash. Doesn't get better!"

  • "I ordered one of these dresses in the hope it would look nice. Well, the next day I ordered two more! These dresses are amazing. Really flattering but also so comfortable (it has pockets!) They hang so nicely and are the perfect length. I'm only 4ft 11, so it's very rare to find something that fits so right and feels so easy to wear. It didn't make me look dumpy like most dresses. I would happily wear this to work, an evening out or even a wedding (would look great with heels) Thank you so much Boden!"
