Summer Style: Maxi Dresses


I don’t know about you, but this warm weather we’ve been having has got me scouring the web for easy, breezy summer outfits – and none is quite so tempting as the maxi dress. A few years ago, the maxi dress made a huge comeback  and  it’s still here as popular as ever – and you can see why. Maxi dresses can be simple, flattering and easy to style – and you can guarantee there’s one out there to suit any body shape.

And so, in light of this gorgeous weather we’ve been having, I’ve put together a selection of the loveliest maxi dress available on the high street – with three themes – beach casual, summer daytime, and evening style.

Maxi dresses work so well, day or night, and can be chucked into a suitcase for almost any holiday you happen to be going on (unless you’re going skiing – I wouldn’t suggest skiing in a maxi dress – or any dress for that matter!). Simply team with a cross-body bag, some flipflops and a hat, and you’re set!


Anyway, I hope this gives you some inspiration! There are some lovely maxi dresses around at the moment, and the ones I’ve featured start at just £12.99 – who could resist?!


1. Cami Sheer Maxi Dress, ASOS, £45 £14
2. Necklace Jersey Maxi Dress, Mango, £29.99
3. Sleeveless Flared Hem Maxi Dress, Marks and Spencer, £89
4. Strappy Back Detail Maxi dress, Boohoo, £18

1. Elephant Bandeau Maxi Dress, New Look, £19.99
2. Frill Maxi Beach Dress, ASOS, £22
3. Island Animal Print Maxi Dress, Topshop, £50
4. Goldie Animal Maxi Dress, ASOS, £38


1. Tie Dye Maxi Dress, River Island, £28
2. All About Rose Printed Maxi Dress, Dorothy Perkins, £45
3. Stripe Strapless Maxi Dress, H&M, £12.99
4. Floral Maxi Dress, Boohoo, £25

My favourite of the lot has to be the ASOS black sheer Cami dress, which is reduced from £45 down to £14 and will definitely be added to my basket ready for payday! Which is your favourite?

    I live in my maxi skirts, but I could never find a maxi dress that fit me right because I always felt like it ate me up since I’m so petite. Great post nonetheless! I’m in love with that white maxi from ASOS

      I used to think that they only suited girls who were 6ft tall! Then I saw someone even smaller than me looking amazing in one – I think with the right fit they look just as nice on petite girls! 🙂
      I like so many of them – must not buy them all! 😮
