It’s official: High-street dresses are better than ever right now, and we cannot get enough of the myriad ways in which Topshop, Zara, Mango and more have interpreted A/W 17’s biggest trends. From seasonless floral prints to polka dots—the pattern of the moment among the street style set—and modern updates on the classic LBD, the high street has taken serious steps to up its frock game, which is our cue to shop. There’s a £50 sequin dress from River Island that we can’t wait to team with strappy gold heels, plus a new ombré sequin dress from Miss Selfridge that’s to die for. Ready to update your dress collection? Keep scrolling to shop our pick of the best dresses on the high street right now.

This leopard print midi is causing an office frenzy—several of the Who What Wear UK team already have it in their shopping baskets. Move fast if you want in!
Need a party frock? Our editorial director is obsessed with the glitzy, 80s-disco feel of this high-necked dress.
This floaty wrap dress will go with everything—boots, sneakers, killer heels. It’s the ultimate multi-tasker.
This is at the top of our deputy editor’s shopping list—and we can totally see why.
This won’t be around for long—it’s trending among Instagrammers and part of Mango’s limited edition Committed collection.
We can see why our Senior Director loves this shirt dress—layer it over jeans and leggings through autumn and winter, then wear with cool sandals come spring.
Another 80s-inspired pick from our editorial director. This looks incredible with sock boots—go for metallics if you’re not ready for the colour clash.
This shirtdress is super versatile, so we’re not surprised to see that it’s selling fast.
It’s never too soon to shop for sequin party dresses. This will look great over black opaques or with a cool tee layered underneath.

For the ultimate LBD, we’re heading to Topshop.
It’s the mixed prints that we’re loving here—and that floaty A-line. This has been already spotted in our office.
