Maxi Dresses

It might have been around for the past few seasons but the maxi dress is most certainly hot this season and will be for many to come. Easy to wear, versatile and comfortable, it is no wonder maxi dresses are so popular. Maxi DressesTake a look at the different styles that are must haves right now and find out which style best suits your figure and shape.

Vibrant prints

It's summer time so that means bright floral prints are everywhere; so combine with a strappy maxi to really get that summer feeling. You'll find bright shades and clashing vibrant colours work well and when the sun is out, so don't be afraid to make a fashion statement with both.

Earthy tones

Even though it's summer, neutral tones are still very much in right now, and you'll find lots of maxi dresses in earthy tones of green, black, brown and orange, all of which create a beautifully rich look. Reminiscent of the boho chic trend, these colours are every inch the hippy look; especially stunning for casual everyday wear when you want to look a little bit more feminine. Usually in pretty floral prints, these maxi dresses in earthy shades have a funky and bohemian appearance.

Women with a large bust or hourglass figure may struggle to find a maxi to fit, however, follow our simple buying tips and you'll find a style to suit your shape. An empire line that falls from beneath the bust will flatter a waistline, although smocking on the bust is not recommended for big busts. A halter neck with a plunge style rather than high fronted is the best option and wear a good strapless or multi way bra. If you prefer to highlight your waist and show off your curves, add a waist belt to create a cinched in look.

Simple maxi dresses
Sometimes less is more and it's no different with the popularity of plain maxi dresses in cotton jersey with no detailing or pattern, which are ever so versatile and are especially great for day to night. Wear individually for fashionable daytime wear or dress up with sparkling accessories for a night out. There are also maxi dresses for the latest Sports Luxe trend designed with broad vest straps for a sportier look in black, white or grey marl. Fashion followers will love stretchy tube style maxi dresses, but they're not as easy to wear as the gypsy styles for plus size women because of their figure hugging design.
