Summer: To The Max!


Maxi Dresses are in this season,after becoming increasingly popular over the past few years.Here is your quick guide to key trends in maxi dresses this summer whether it be smart or casual,bold or outgoing.Whatever you feel like this summer make sure you live your summer to the max( i )!!!!


Tie-Dye
Get totally psychedelic this summer, take a look at just two examples of the tie-dye trend , dressed up and down. Bright greens and soft blues compliment each other beautifully in this fabulous dress , simply pair with a wide brimmed sun hat and chunky wedges for that perfect casual summer look. Or dress the tie-dye look up with darker, richer colours then take it to the next level by adding some sleek silver jewellery.

Stripes
Stripes never cease to look elegant , whether it be a striped jumper,top or coat-but this Summer stripes are bringing a new quirkiness to the maxi dress.A simple jersey maxi dress teamed with retro shades,beach bag and simple leather flats work a dream!  Whereas a long sleeved maxi with timeless black heels and a quirky bowler hat makes up a  perfect example of a dressed up striped maxi dress- see Agyness Deyn for further details!!!
