Can't Afford This Rixo Dress? Here Are 7 Gorgeous High Street Swaps

Especially if you're on a budget.

British brand Rixo has built a cult following since it launched in 2015 for its print packed, vintage-inspired dresses in form flattering cuts and eye-catching colours.

But sadly for us, they don’t come cheap. The current fave among the fashion crowd is the Martha dress, a 100% silk midi with a bold green and black pattern of red daisies and oversized polka splodges. Only problem is, it’s £315.
