Hush has long been on our radar because the brand has a knack for making classic pieces with a twist.

Set up by Australian Mandy Watkins, the clothing has that typically Aussie laid-back, easy-going vibe, without scrimping on quality.

With the brand ethos based around clothes that are designed to be worn loads for many years, this Maree Embroidered Dress, which we've chosen as our Dress of the Day brings that Hush vision to life in the best way possible.

Why we rate it

For starters, let's address the price point because this stunning dress is reduced from £79 to £50 – meaning you get it for just under £30 off.

And it has wow-factor, with those sequin and bead embellished sleeves detailed with delicate embroidery. Yet it's not too OTT.

In midnight blue – which is more flattering to the complexion than black – the fabric is 100% organic cotton jersey. It has been designed for a relaxed, comfortable fit and will be a maxi length if you're short, or a long-midi if you're taller.

With a relaxed fit, and made from organic cotton, the midnight-blue dress is really versatile. (Hush)

And, hurrah, it's also machine-washable. Simply turn it inside out and wash it at no more than 30 degrees. If it's creased, you can cool iron it on the reverse.

What gives this dress the X-factor, though, is that while it is a supremely comfortable, throw-on style that can be worn with flip-flops to the beach, simply swapping your shoes for something dressier (like strappy silver sandals) will up its glam quotient, making it the perfect piece to wear from beach to bar.

And it'll look great post-holiday too. Whether lunching with friends, going to a BBQ or party, or having a picnic in the park, you can elevate the versatile Maree Embroidered Dress from casual to glam or vice versa simply by wearing different shoes or accessories.

Plus it'll be a total winner for festivals with its boho vibe and easy-to-squish-in-a-backpack fabric.

Be aware, though, that although it comes in size 6-18, some sizes have already sold out. In case it's no longer available in yours, we've rounded up five other brilliant sale buys from Hush, too. So keep scrolling.

What the reviews say

With some shoppers commenting that they have purchased this style previously in other colourways, too, and others raving about its comfort, elegance and versatility, this is a winning look. Especially at this incredible price point.

  • "Absolutely fabulous. Love the shape very flattering. Already have 2 others the same shape but in different colour ways."

  • "I'm usually a size 14 so I bought a medium and fits very comfortably. Love the material, the slits at the bottom of the dress are very chic and love the sparkly detail on the top. Will be taking this on holiday, perfect also for a night out or a garden summer party. Would definitely recommend this dress."

  • "Arrived Saturday morning, I was wearing it by Saturday afternoon. I love these dresses, I have the grey version too, they’re comfortable, go with lots of different trainers, great with boots too, perfect to simply ‘throw on and go’. Great value in the sale too. Well done Hush, top marks."

  • "The dress fit beautifully. I’m normally size 16 but ordered 14 after reading other reviews. It’s a beautiful dress and extremely flattering skimming over all my lumps and bumps ! I felt fabulous on a night out recently. A birthday treat from my mum. Will definitely be buying from hush again."

  • "I love that Hush have brought this style back. I have the black version too. It’s casual but elegant and can be dressed up or down. Perfect."
