One dress is proving to tick boxes for every age group, making it a perfect option for those who see their mother‘s wardrobe as an extension of their own or regularly nab an outfit from their daughter‘s closet.

British designers Hope – founded in 2015 by ex-M&S board member Nayna McIntosh – claim their £150 python print dress flatters everyone, from teenagers to retirees. 

The shirt dress can be styled in a variety of ways, with some pairing it with jeans for an informal day look and others dressing it up with strappy heels.
