Summer can present so many difficult opportunities to dress for – festivals, beach days, weddings, and everything in between. Plus it can be expensive trying to find looks for all of them, which is why we lined up the best maxis for summer.
Here we give you the low down on the casual options you can throw on any day of the week, right up to maxis perfect for standing next to the blushing bride and groom. Irrespective of the date or time, you are guaranteed to stay stylish!
Maxi dresses are truly a summer staple. On hot days where you don’t want to dress up but still feel pretty, a patterned maxi can make you feel fashionable in a minute. Summery colours like a sea blue or palm tree green can give you a vibrant look, while pretty prints can add a touch of glam with minimal effort.
Maxis are a perfect choice for the beach. Its easy to throw-on-nature is great for pulling one over a swimsuit or bikini, and gives you a relaxed, floaty cover if you’d prefer to sit under a big umbrella, drink in hand and just watch the waves. If you would rather people-watch, go for lighter fabrics or strappy maxi dresses so you can stay cool under the hot summer sun.
Now’s your chance to really go glam! While you can never go wrong with a sleek and stylish LBD, (in this case standing for Long Black Dress), you can find maxis in a huge range of prints and patterns. Finding the best maxis for summer is so much simpler when you know you can hit the bars in style, and still look effortlessly chic having dinner al-fresco.
The first and most obvious rule of business – don’t go for white and upstage the bride! Now that’s out the way, think delicate fabrics, floral patterns and lace detailing for the perfect summer wedding look. The huge range of maxis available is also perfect if you’re on bridesmaid duty and the bride has just asked all of the group to choose outfits in one colour.
With 2018’s colour of the year being a surprising ultra-violet, it’s time to choose a maxi that really makes you stand out from the crowd! This gorgeous colour is a vibrant bright and can be worn at the beach, bar or just about anywhere else! You can make the most of this super-shade either as a subtle splash of colour, or as a full-blown vibrant violet vision.
