That sell-out Topshop dress is now available in a new print for AW18 and I want it bad

Remember the sold-out Topshop polka dot dress that was selling for triple the price on eBay? Well, it hasn't come back in stock, but the good news is, it's back in a new print for autumn/winter, and it makes me want it even more.

Say hello to the zebra print pinafore dress - a bold choice I agree, but animal print is a huge trend for AW18, and this is a great way to dip into it now.

As with its predecessor, you can wear this style on its own, preferably with a minimalist sandal, or over a t-shirt and with plimsolls for a more casual vibe.

Come autumn, I'll be wearing mine over a black rollneck jumper and pairing it with some chic ankle boots. In fact, if I'm feeling particularly bold, I'll wear it with faux snake skin ankle boots. Because more is more with this trend.

The dress is so popular it's already sold out in a couple sizes, so if you don't want to have to buy it on eBay for an extortionate price, this time round, make sure you get it sooner rather than later.

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.
