There is now a black version of THAT Zara dress

Everyone knows someone who owns the Zara polka dot dress. In fact, it's hard to walk down the street or get on the tube and not spot at least one woman wearing it.

It's not an exaggeration to say that it's THE dress of the summer, it even has its own Instagram account, which currently has 18.5k followers.

And it seems the frenzy shows no signs of abating, as the dress has now been re-released, in a new colour way, which is perhaps even more wearable than the first one.

It now comes in black, but the slight hiccup is that it's only available in Australia at the moment, according to Grazia.

However, that doesn't mean it won't be available soon in the UK, and given the dress' incredible popularity, I'd be surprised if it didn't.

Shop now: PRINTED DRESS for £39.99 from ZARA

In the meantime however, you can still shop the original version in store and online at Zara.

Then all you need to do is keep an eye out on the Instagram account, it's probably a matter of time before you get tagged...

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
