This check Zara dress is everywhere and perfect for a low key date

Hidden. Pockets.

If you’re looking for the ultimate summer dress, look no further. Checked prints are a major summer fashion trend and we’re starting to see them all over the high street, but one piece from Zara has reigned supreme on the internet.

Introducing the Checked Dress with Belt, available now at Zara. (Ignore the boring name, the dress itself is actually killer.) It’s been spotted all over Instagram on your favourite fashion influencers recently and given that it’s a reasonable £39.99, it’s a totally doable buy once your payday slip rolls in.

Described as a ‘long round neck with short sleeves’ and an A-line silhouette, the muted forest tone is a welcome departure from loud pink and firetruck red ginghams of days past. With a matching belt to give your waist a bit of definition, the set of marbled buttons on the back is a thoughtful detail that gives it a more sophisticated touch.

And it has HIDDEN POCKETS. Say no more.

It’s called spring ever heard of it?
