The maxi dress has declared itself the must have item for the summer, so ditch the skin tight mini’s for something long and floaty! Perfect for the beach, or the bar so if you’re going on holiday there’s no excuse not to include the maxi in your â€˜pre-holiday-splurge’. For casual-summer-chic, wear this Flower Maxi Dress, £40 from Topshop with a pair of flat gold summer sandals, and accessories with simple wooden bangles and shades.
The great thing about the maxi dress, apart from its obvious visual delights, is its ability to suit most body shapes. The dresses are meant to be tight around the bust, then loose fitting and long to the float, giving a more flattering silhouette. If you are a little shorter than most, team yours with wedge heels for an instant lift!
