As the weather in the UK warms up there is nothing we are lusting after more than a summer dress.
There is a vast array of styles to choose from, so it can be overwhelming finding the perfect design to suit your style preferences.
While some may be on the hunt for short sleeved designs or balloon sleeves, others may be lusting after sleeveless or strapless designs to keep them cool as the temperatures soar.
Some shoppers may be looking to revamp their wardrobe with a maxi length bohemian style, but others may be on the hunt for mid-length or even mini dresses.
The options, when it comes to summer dress shopping, are endless.
What we love most about summer dresses is they are super versatile, and can take you from day to night, work to after-work drinks, garden parties to more formal celebratory occasions with a bit of clever styling.
While some may pair their one piece with sandals, or trainers for a daytime picnic, others may want to up the ante and channel a more glamorous look, in which case heeled espadrilles, wedges or stilettos are a popular choice.
We have curated a selection of summer dresses under £40, which include some on sale and full price items, to take the stress out of your shopping spree.
