Maxi dress are a go-to look when summer rolls around and it’s all thanks to the versatility of the look, and the fact they’re easy to wear and really comfortable too.
Summer’s go-to dress length will see you through parties, weekends and work and there’s plenty of different styles to ensure there’s something for everyone.
The versatile floor-skimmer can be reworked throughout the season and to help with this the bold colour styles can make accessorising simple. You can also channel this season’s 70s trend and create a throwback look with a hippy headband, round-framed sunglasses and strappy gladiator sandals.
Fans of feminine and flirty fashion will find floral prints hard to resist – just remember to keep accessories to a minimum and let the look do all of the talking.
Don’t discount them for a formal occasion either; they’re a great choice when complemented with a glitzy clutch and strappy heels. Needle and Thread are a go-to brand if you’re looking for something special, their designs are reminiscent of Valentino and Elie Saab pieces.
Maxi dresses are perfect on holiday too, throw them over your bikini while you take a break from sunbathing and let them provide a cool cover-up in the hot weather. Long and loose spaghetti strap styles will take you from beach to bar with ease.
If you’re worried about all of the fabric drowning your body too, the best advice is to streamline your look and elongate your body with a v-neck design.
