This summer I have properly fallen for the charms of the maxi dress. We’ve had weeks of wonderful sunshine and a real heatwave. It’s been such a treat, but I’ve found it even a little bit hot for my usual wardrobe of shorts and t-shirts. Wearing a floaty maxi dress on the hottest days had helped me keep cool and look pretty smart and stylish too.
Although the temperature is starting to drop a little as we move towards autumn, I’m loathe to put away my maxi dresses for good, in fact I’m planning on investing in a couple more to see me through autumn and maybe an especially smart one to wear out at Christmas. I’ve fallen for the maxi dress, they hide some of the lumps and bumps I’m less keen on, without looking like I’m trying to hide anything at all.
Simply Be is a great place to start with shopping for Maxi Dresses, they have a great range of styles and something for all budgets.
I love the look of this Mela London Curve Floral Maxi Dress, it’s just £30 and would look just as home at work with a smart jacket as it would on holiday. I love the cut around the bust which would be super flattering.
The oriental style neckline and the small gather on the waist on this lovely Joanna Hope Multi Print Maxi Dress really catches my eye. It’s currently reduced to £49.50 on the Simply Be website and it would be the thing to wear on a nice night out, perhaps with a cosy wrap.
In the run up to Christmas you need a good dress or two in the wardrobe. This Together Beaded Maxi Dress is simply stunning. With an elasticated waistband, mesh netted skirt and cap sleeve, this dress falls beautifully and creates a gorgeous silhouette. It’s also jersey lined for comfort. If that’s not enough, it’s currently reduced to just £52.25.
Lastly, I absolutely love this Coast Macie Maxi Dress. It has striking contrasting monochrome panels with an asymmetric neckline, fitted bodice and sweeping skirt for an eye-catching evening dress. Love, Love, love this.
What do you look for in a maxi dress? Do you just wear them in the summer or do you wear them year round?
