Topshop is selling a top version of its sell-out Austin dress and it's flying off shelves

Must. Have.

05 Jun 2019

You know that Topshop dress everyone's been wearing on Instagram? You know the one. It's called the Austin dress. Long, flowing, flattering. Floor-length. Gathered waist. Cut-out, triangular-shape back. Two quite cheeky slits in the skirt. Comes in different patterns.

This is it. You've probably seen it before. Maybe you even own it.

You see it here in its natural habitat: by the seaside, on a summer day, glistening in the sun.

Here it is, in a kind-of scalloped polka dot print.

Not me now. I’m sat in bed waiting for hubby to come home from a bike ride so I can go for a run 🏃🏼‍♀️. . . Excited about this afternoon and evening. The kids are staying at their grandparents so we can watch Rocketman and then the football and the boxing in the pub. As a Spurs fan it’s the biggest game I’ve ever seen them play. Nervous doesn’t begin to cover it. I’m just trying to remember how lucky we are to be there at all, and believe me, some luck was definitely involved! #ifyouknowyouknow #coys ⚽️ . . In other news, I’d love it if you’d join in #sharethestylesaturday with myself and @shirleysloveofstyle today! Tag us both in so we don’t miss you 😘 Thanks lovely ladies ❤️❤️. . . .

And here it is again, in a jolly, multi-coloured, artsy floral pattern.

The Topshop Austin dress. Yes, it’s been all over Instagram already. But it’s beautiful and fits me well, even though it’s not in petite sizing ❤️. Hoping the weathers nice enough to wear this again soon 🤞😎 . .

It's gorgeous, obviously. Suits a lot of figures, swishes like a dream when you walk down the street or the beach, perfect for a wedding guest dress, or a party, or even a picnic. It's a summer staple.

Well! We have good news for any fans of the "jeans and a nice top" look. Topshop has just announced that it's releasing the Austin dress as a top. The Austin blouse is available in Topshop stores and online now and comes in at a pretty friendly £25. It's got the same structured but floaty style and comes in a similar selection of bold patterns, only it's short enough to pair with trousers, jeans or a skirt.

Here is it, in top form.

Behold: The Austin dress as a top. This one is in their "stunning starlight" design. Look at that synched-in waistline! That modest neckline! Those sleeves!

Hurry, hurry. We predict it'll sell out quickly.
