Summer’s Best Maxis – Take Your Style To The Max

I love maxis.  So wearable. Dress them up or down and they’ll take you from the school run to a dinner date.  Throw on a shrug or scarf and it doesn’t matter if the British weather is a little inclement. Best of all, there are beautiful dresses to suit every budget.

Here are some of my favourites so far this season.

M&S Limited Edition Floral Maxi Dress – £45

I love the olive colour of this dress which makes a change from the traditional floral pattern and the tassels add a fun touch. It’s available in sizes 6 – 18.

Reiss Arleta Floral Maxi – £225

This is a beautiful floor sweeping dress from Reiss which would not be out of place at a summer wedding. It’s available in sizes 4-14.

ASOS Pleated Swing Maxi Dress – £65

Gorgeous dress, gorgeous colour.  It’s very hard to beat ASOS for on trend but purse friendly fashion treats. It also comes in black and is available in sizes 4 – 18.

Wallis Monochrome Scarf  Print Maxi £48 reduced to £33.60

I love Wallis Maxis and have quite a few in my wardrobe.  I’m not sure that this season’s collection is Wallis’ strongest but I love this one which would be incredibly easy to accessorize.  It’s available in sizes 8-20.

F&F Floral Embellished Maxi – £55

I love this feminine, floaty dress which has an embellished neckline and cut out detail on the chest. It’s available in sizes 6-18.

Jessica Wright Sweetheart Neck Panel Bodycon Maxi Dress – £80 at House of Fraser

Not your run of the mill daytime maxi, but how much va-va-voom does this fabulous maxi from the Jessica Wright collecton have?  Available at House of Fraser in sizes 6-14.  (16 is current out of stock).


Myleene Klass D-Ring Maxi Dress – £100 –

This is a lovely dress in a hot raspberry colour which has contrasting straps in white at the back. Available in sizes 8 – 20, it would set off a tan nicely, should you be lucky enough to find the sun this summer.

Joanne Hope Lace Maxi from JD Williams – £55

This is a body lined maxi which comes in two lengths (43″ or 52″) and comes in cobalt, coral, ocean green and navy.  Available in sizes 12-32.

Embellished Maxi Dress from Marisota – £60

A lovely maxi which has embellished detail to the waist and would an ideal summer wedding guest outfit.  Be quick though, stock is quite low on most sizes (12-26) which size 12 and size 20 already sold out.

Love the Joanne Hope lace dress, as it hides the old bingo wings… I'd love a maxi dress this year. Will have comp more and win some vouchers!

I love the idea of maxi dresses but unfortunately being the same size as a squirrel I rarely find one to fit. The Marisota dress in blue is very pretty, love that one.

My goodness, my long dresses are almost stylish. 😛 The dresses are absolutely gorgeous and I love seeing long skirts.


Oh my goodness, I love the first and second ones! Absolutely stunning. I always feel good wearing long dresses and have three gorgeous M&S ones in my wardrobe! Thanks so much for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
