High street stores are literally draped in maxi dresses this season and are the perfect day to night summer outfit. Very flattering so long as you try the length before you buy and highly comfortable.
Favoured by many celebrities, particularly the ever Bohemian Nicole Richie (see above), the different choices on the high street are endless - printed, plain, fitted, loose, halterneck, bandeau, shirred, cotton, denim and so on. So I've chosen a great geometric print halterneck maxi from Topshop for £35 and suggested what to pair it with to take it from day to night.
So for day, pair the dress with some neutral accessories. A floppy hat is oh so chic this summer (Accessorize, £20) and a pair of laced gladiators are comfy and compliment the yellow of the dress (Miss Selfridge, £25).
To glam up the dress for evening, pop your hat back in the suitcase and let your glossy waves do the talking! Add a statement necklace to the neckline (£30, ASOS.com) and some chunky bangles to one wrist (New Look, £10). Swap your flats for some mega wedges like these gorgeous leather/wooden ones (Dune, £85) and pick up this glam beaded clutch (ASOS, £35).
