Maxi dresses, as the summer comes around, have come back into the shops by storm. In previous years I have shied away from maxi dresses as I’m very petite and I was always scared that they’d swamp me, however this year I ventured out and bought one and I haven’t looked back. I’ve collected some of my favourite ones that I’ve seen online or in store; as always click on the images to shop.
This gorgeous maxi dress from Boohoo has a detailed top adorned with ruffles and a halterneck strap to create a beautiful neckline. I love the pretty floral pattern and the colours are stunning, this would definitely fit right in to my wardrobe!
This red maxi dress is eye catching and looks like a perfect holiday piece. The lightweight fabric is perfect for on the beach as it would keep you cool whilst covering your skin from the sun. I love the waist tie detail as I think it adds a little bit extra to the outfit.
This open back maxi dress is beautiful; I love the back detail as it adds something extra to the piece. The bardot top is right on trend, as are the ruffles and bell sleeves, this is a very unique piece which would look great on holiday.
A message for all my petite girls out there: don’t stay away from maxi dresses because you’re scared of being too small. I’ve found that they actually tend to make you look a lot taller, and lots of brands now offer petite specific dresses which will fit you better.
Maxi dresses continue to look classy and very summery, there’s a chance to get amazing photos when stood on the beach and the seabreeze makes the fabric billow out (it’s very aesthetically pleasing!).
