Going mad for Maxi

From bold to nude tones, from lace to silk... yes, the Maxi dress revival is here! I must admit, prior to this 'relaunch', so to speak, I wasn't really a big fan of these summer dresses... Instead opting for something that didn't make me look like a walking pair of curtains! Suffice to say I couldn't quite carry off the look as well as, say, taller people!

However, it wasn't until recently that I realised where I had been going wrong. It wasn't my height that was the issue (I'm 5'2" btw - so not that small!), but the fact that I was buying the wrong sizes/ fits... to say I felt silly when I found out was an understatement. But nevermind, because I can now enjoy Maxis in all their summery and floaty glory at long last! whoooooop haha!

This page (click) has great tips on how to buy Maxi dresses that are a perfect fit for you, so you'll always look knock-out fantastic!

Fashion shows for SS10 collections saw designers showing off different styles in abundance, here are just a few of my favourite Maxis this summer:

The first is a beautiful multi-toned Maxi, from the Blumarine SS10 collection. Perfect for sunny holidays. The second is by Emilio Pucci, again from the summer collection.. The serene shades of blue create an almost angelic effect don't you think? Finally the third is a Stella McCartney, with ruffled texture.

This Kenzo has to be my absolute favourite designer Maxi of the season. The soft tone of the dress contrasts with the hard lines of the denim jacket, creating an 'edge' to the outfit.

Luckily you don't have to pay designer prices to get the designer look, with this edgy street-style alternative influencing the high street.

This outfit is a combination of a lace maxi dress(£45) and denim jacket(£45) both from Topshop.


  1. I love maxi dresses right now, and wear one almost every day (I have around 20 different maxi dresses), so needless to say, I loved this post!

  2. I love maxi dresses, but feel a little bit mental wearing them!
