Maxi Dresses: A Stylish Summer Staple…

If there is one dress that will be able to take you through the entire summer, it is the maxi dress.  Effortless and easy-breezy, they provide the wearer with a chic look that is both flattering and feminine.  From uptown glamour to bohemian beauty, the stylish options available are (almost!) endless, and you are sure to find the perfect dress for any event that comes your way this season.

Here are a few styling tips for those special summer occasions…

Summer wedding

A maxi dress, like this one from ASOS, will make a perfect wedding guest outfit. Bright orange is the colour to work with this season and is a sure-fire way to make you stand out from the crowd. The detailing at the bodice and the length of the dress make this flowing number great for a formal occasion.

Day tripping

For laid back sunny days of picnics and shopping (well, a girl can hope!) a simple jersey maxi will be comfortable, cool and on trend all in one. Team this look with a cropped denim jacket (remember Pippa Middleton in her crisp, white one?) and gladiator sandals for effortless chic.

 Night out

For a girls night out a little black dress is always a style saviour, so why not swap the LBD for the MBD, maxi black dress, for the same glamourous effect. This look will look great teamed with platform wedges and lashings of gold jewellery, one can never have too many bangles on at once!


For an easy beach cover up a maxi dress is a fab idea as even if you head to the bar for lunch you will still look great. A floppy hat, sunglasses, comfy sandals and a beach bag will be all the accessories you will need to work this look brilliantly.

There are so many other occasions that this classic look will work for… think first dates, barbecues or a relaxing stroll in the park.

Simply put, the maxi is here to stay and will work for anything you want to throw at it!

    I have seen the sunhat/maxi combo and I like the proportions in this outfit.
