5 TIMES TO WEAR THE MAXI DRESS THIS SUMMER

By Rebecca Wade, 25 July 2017

From fancy occasions to city break ramblings, the maxi dress is a multipurpose summer essential. Check out these five #AsSeenOnMe babes demonstrating maxi adaptability with minimum fuss.

Ruffle up

If you blew all your savings on a luxe, full-length frock for wedding season and are now keen to maximise on your investment, take a look at this refresher course in dressing down a maxi. A khaki cargo jacket will bring the casj to any number of floor-length frills, but swap out the heels for sneaks to achieve next-level chill.

The transition piece

The cold shoulders and ruffled layers on this floaty number are so dreamy for your daytime deal – simply pair with casual sandals and a relaxed satchel. Or, for fancier plans, amp up the glam with sleek metallic sandals and matching clutch.

Making me blush

All-pink everything is where it's at this summer, so go hard by opting for blush tones and cutesy ruffle detailing. A breezy silhouette will give your body some breathing space and help you keep your cool at a casual Sunday brunch. Finish with a chunky, woven beach bag and suede sandals (in pink, obvs).

Grecian queen

There’s nothing like a flimsy cotton dress with ocean-blue embroidery to make you feel like a Greek goddess, and this #AsSeenOnMe star is giving us beachside cover-up style to swoon over. Wear with a straw hat to match those tranquil holiday feels and switch your sandals for sliders.

Into the blue

A mega-ruffle detailed maxi, with a figure-flattering waist tie and sexy front split = real date-night potential. To complete the royal blue look, channel simple sophistication with barely there heels and delicate bling.
