There’s something about Italian women that’s incredibly glamorous, and anything we can do to emulate their style is a winner in our book.

Which is probably why these two H&M dresses have gone viral. They are two different designs, but with the same bold lemon print.

Shop now: Cotton poplin dress for £49.99 from H&M

One is a floaty chiffon number, and the other is a ruffle poplin dress that might as well have been worn by Sofia Loren or Anita Ekberg in La Dolce Vita.

They are a little over the top and entirely fabulous, and fashion influencers have been falling over themselves to wear them.

Our favourite combination has to be a red lip, espadrilles and a basket bag, in other words, the perfect 'I'm jetting off to Portofino or some other glamorous Italian village' look.

Unfortunately, the chiffon dress is entirely sold out online, however H&M have told us it's still available in limited stores. The silver lining is the ruffle frock is still online in a few sizes, so you might be lucky.

You know what they say, when life gives you lemons...

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.
