20th June 2017
Maxi dresses are the master of mix and match – super easy to dress down but also capable of making you look extra hot at all those summer events in your diary. If you’ve been asking yourself ‘where can I wear a maxi dress this summer?’ wonder no more, girls – just follow these tips and you’re sorted.
For the beer garden meet up
The Whatsapp group is lit, the sun isn’t going away any time soon and you and your mates are all free for a catch up over some ice cold ciders. A maxi dress, is the perfect throw on for such an occasion. Team yours with some fashion trainers, your fave sunnies and get ready to chill in the sunshine.
Our Tri League Maxi Dress is the perfect casual style to wear for such a moment, with a sporty design you’ll feel super relaxed with that drink in hand. Oh, and it has pockets. Always a win.
For the 9-5 desk job
Warmer weather brings with it the question of what’s appropriate to wear to the office – too much leg and the HR lady will be ‘having a word’, not enough and you’ll be a hot mess. That’s where a work maxi dress comes in. Not only is it long enough not to cause a fuss but it should keep you pretty cool too. Just sling on some wedge heels, add some lippie if you’ve got a big meeting and you’ll be nailing easy office style.
Our Tiered Tie Maxi Dress comes in a vintage inspired pattern that works in any office setting –way more exciting than black – and you can even throw it in your case for that last minute Ibiza getaway with the girls.
For the evening do invite
Single at a wedding? Not a bridesmaid? Get that maxi out. These floor skimming dresses are the perfect evening do outfit, without the evening do price tag. Wedding maxi dresses, even in a jersey material, won’t have the mother of the bride raising an eyebrow at your outfit. Plus, they’ll hug in all the right places, so you can catch the eye of that cheeky best man.
Our Evissia Split Maxi Dress is the perfect choice for when that summer wedding invite drops through the door, it’s definitely a posh maxi dress with a delicate back design that makes it elegant enough for the ceremony, while the stretchy material means you can still grind on the dancefloor later.
For the cocktail bar on holiday
All inclusive holidays are the perfect opportunity to try every single cocktail available on the menu, while chatting up that cute bar tender of course. Grab a beach maxi dress you can throw on as a cover up throughout the day and that will see you through until the evening – when you’re having too much of a good time to go up to your room and change.
Our Emilia Smocked Racer Back Maxi features a cheeky split skirt, keeping you cool but showing off some leg at the same time. It looks great with sliders but add some heels and you’re ready for a night checking out the clubs nearby.
Getting married on a sandy beach? We’re not jealous at all (we totally are). But if you still haven’t got your hands on a frock, we reckon a lightweight maxi will do it – with bare feet and salt spritzed hair you’ll be a beautiful boho bride. Plus, it’s super affordable, which means you’ll have more cash for that bar tab – drinks are on you and your new beau!
Our Isla Scoop Crochet Maxi Dress is perfect for saying your I do’s with your toes in the sand – pretty and lightweight it’ll look stunning with a golden tan.
For the backyard BBQ
Seizing the opportunity of the sun with a bbq with your mates? That means dressing comfy enough for lounging but with a summer chic – a simple jersey material maxi in a striped print works. Pair it with sandals and a high ponytail for a casual vibe that still looks good but isn’t too try hard.
Our Essential Stripe Maxi is perfect for that BBQ get together – it’s lightweight material means you’ll definitely stay cool if the sun decides to come out while it’s figure hugging style shows off all the hard work you’ve been putting in at the gym.
