Whilst still trying to appreciate the last few weeks of the English Summer, I’ve been looking through my wardrobe to see which pieces will be following me into the cooler months. I’m pleased to announce that my Maxi Dresses will be joining me.
Maxi Dresses are some of the most versatile staples around and when it comes to the Autumn/Winter months, all you have to do is pop on a pair of tights or leggings underneath and voilà. Since there are so many to choose from, we’ve hand picked a few designs we think are worth trying whatever the season.
Casual Maxi Dress
Having a simple maxi in classic colours makes those ‘running late’ mornings a whole lot easier. Our Printed Tassel Maxi Dress makes for a perfect daytime outfit. It looks great with sandals or wedges, a touch of lippy and a nice hat for that finished summer look. Moving into winter, simply pair with a leather jacket, some toasty boots and you’re looking cute.
Long Sleeve Maxi Dress
One of our favourite long sleeve maxis has definitely got to be the Red Navy Border Maxi Dress. Kate Middleton would agree as she was spotted in it! Which comes as no surprise because it looks gorgeous. Its long sleeves make for a great day to night choice, not to mention perfect for the colder seasons. It can look ideal for a casual or dressy event depending on how you style it.
Black Maxi Dress
Black is the easiest colour to play around with and this Black Maxi Dress With Side Split allows us to do just that. Look on trend with trainers and an oversized denim jacket, or dress it up for a special event by adding heels and some red lipstick. The side split gives it a feminine kick and makes it a good maxi for us shorter, more petite ladies.
Floral Maxi Dress
Floral maxi dresses make us all look like belles of the ball and the Zahara Maxi in Red Carnation is a faultless example of one. You could flit from a casual bbq to someone’s special day and no one would bat an eyelid. It looks stunning with sandals and summer hat or paired with red heels and matching lips for those dressier events. Love, love, love!
Special Occasion Maxi Dress
The Blush Pink Tie Back Maxi Dress is one of our favourite maxis for memorable occasions. It combines grace and femininity perfectly, with a girly frill neckline and a slightly sexier characteristic, a side slit, you’ll feel pretty in pink and be turning those heads. Pair with some strappy heels and an elegant headpiece for an angelic ensemble.
Backless Maxi Dress
This one’s for our risk takers! Fitting for a romantic dinner date, your next glamorous event or a fabulous night out with the girls, the Rafaela Dress in Black will make you stand out in a crowd. Let the dress speak for itself as the open back is a statement alone; keep the make up and accessories simple adding a pair of killer heels to finish the look off.
It’s difficult to choose from all of the gorgeous maxis out there, but we managed to narrow it down to six of our favourites, each one fitting for a different occasion. So go ahead and test the water, you really can make maxi dresses your own.
