Must-Have Maxi Dresses

An easy silhouette, the maxi dress is a versatile piece to wear on hot holidays; out and about in the city or dressed up for evening chic. These floor sweeping dresses are perfect to take you from day to night so you’ll feel polished right through the summer.

Tips

  • Layer up! Maxi’s work perfectly with leather bikers and structured jackets.
  • Dress down in style with your favourite trainers.
  • If you’re going for vibrant prints, keep your accessories simple.
  • ‘Toughen up’ your outfit with studded boots.
  • Lift your look with a pair of heels and statement earrings for the evening.

 

Off duty dressing

When it comes to maxi dresses I like to go for floaty fabrics and bright floral prints styling them with super girlie sliders. Want to toughen up the look? Pop on a leather jacket and a pair of Stan Smith’s and you’ve got yourself an instant off duty outfit. Finish the look with a black cross body bag and statement shades. Maxi dresses and hot summer days are truly the perfect partners.

Workwear

Do you find office dressing a little tricky? Me too! I will usually choose a crisp cotton fabric as it’s so lightweight. Styling a shirt dress is easy, layer it over a pair of tailored trousers or team it with a structured jacket. Wear it with simple accessories and sandals to complete the look.

Holiday

My maxi dresses are the first thing I pack when jetting off as they’re such a versatile choice for day to night dressing. My preference is a neutral hue with a pretty print, it can be worn to the beach over a one piece or paired with statement sandals for dinner.

Summer events

Race days, regatta’s or the tennis, I love to wear a maxi! For me, a floaty chiffon number works well for these occasions. Just add oversized shades and layer on some long necklaces from Missoma and you’re good to go.
