Got a line-up of summer weddings but no idea how to dress for the occasion? Ever the purveyors of fashion advice (you can thank us later), we’re here to help you select a killer dress for that blessed, sun-soaked occasion.

Apart from getting a tan while waiting for photographs, the best thing about summer weddings is the choice you have when it comes to the day’s outfit. A maxi dress is a versatile option, easily taking you from the formalities of the day to the evening party, and can be styled with glamour and comfort in mind.

Throw a smart jacket over the shoulders as a chic way to seek cover from the evening chill, or accessorise a block colour maxi dress with a statement neck piece, keeping the rest of your look simple. And what’s even better: after the wedding, you can recycle your outfit, ready for your next holiday!
