Feminine and utterly gorgeous chiffon maxi dress, perfect for weddings.

I don’t think anything says ‘summer goddess’ like a maxi dress does.  My reasoning for this is that they are feminine, chic, comfortable and cool with their flowy, romantic skirts.  We have stocked the most gorgeous designer long maxi dresses this year with the most vivid, colourful designs and fun prints in a dazzling array of bold multi colours such as blue, green, orange, coral and pink (to name a few!).  With all the different designs we have, it would be truly impossible not to find one to your taste or to have too many in your wardrobe!  Below are some of the questions we have been asked when customers have been considering a maxi dress:

Where can I wear a maxi dress?

Maxi dresses are renowned for their versatility and are fantastic beach to bar dresses.  They can be worn as casual dresses on the beach or around town when shopping.  Our customers have also loved wearing their tropical print maxi dresses on summer cruises and have told us that they received so many compliments when wearing their maxis.  However, maxi dresses are not only reserved for casual wear.  They are also fabulous dresses if you are attending a spring or summer wedding, or if you are going out for the evening.

What shoes shall I wear with a maxi dress?

If you’re wearing your maxi dress in the daytime and want a casual look, I love these dresses with flat gladiator sandals or flip flops for a fun and flirty summer look.  If (like me) you are small and need a bit of extra height with a maxi dress, cork or espadrille rope wedges always look great and keep in with your effortless glam-but-casual look!

If you want to wear your maxi dress at an evening event or a formal wedding, go for a nice glamorous heel.  Silver or gold shoes are great neutral colours which will go with any dress colour and they wont outshine a vibrant maxi.  NB. if you are wearing a stiletto heel, make sure you go for a good heel height so your maxi dress is just off the floor – otherwise your heel could get caught and tear the hem of the dress.

What accessories go with a maxi dress?

Don’t make your maxi dress compete for attention with tonnes of jewellery, especially if there is a print on the dress.  For the casual daytime look I love to accessorize my maxi with long boho necklaces, chunky bangles and rings.  I also love a good hat, and think that a fedora or big brimmed floppy hat for that Sienna Miller look is fabulous!

If you are wearing your maxi dress in the evening and want to look glamorous, choose delicate jewellery which wont overpower the dress.  For example, go for a simple necklace with a sparkly pendant, a delicate sparkly bracelet and a ring.
