Always elegant, the maxi dress is effortless summer dressing at its best. Our stunning selection of black maxi dresses are such a chic alternative to the traditional little black dress. A gently gathered waist will highlight an hourglass figure, or choose a slightly looser fit for even more comfort and casual style – artful draping will enhance your shapely features, and who doesn’t want to look like a Greek goddess? Flaunt toned shoulders and arms with halter-neck styles or delicate shoestring straps – this is the time to flash just a little more skin – or choose wider straps for a look that’s both pretty and practical. A sexy split or a high-low hem elongates your legs and draws attention to perfectly pedicured feet – accessorise with a stylish pair of flat sandals and if the party ends up on the beach, you’re still good to go. Holidaying in the tropics? A tribal motif is perfect for your exotic locale. Bold stripes make a graphic statement – or for a more bohemian vibe, pick a colourful floral or abstract print. Pair with a wide-brimmed hat, stylish sunglasses and jewelled wedge sandals for resort-style glamour. Regardless of whether your location is five-star heaven or simply a picnic at the local beach, you’ll be dressed perfectly for the part in one of our dreamy maxis.
