They can make glamorous and elegant occasion wear for any summer events you may be attending - weddings, christenings, the races? With a pair of wedges or heels, a smart jacket or bolero and a fancy clutch bag, you can turn a casual maxi dress into a gown. Just be careful if you plan to wear yours with heels or wedges - your skirt length will still need to reach the floor so try to take your shoes with you to ensure the length is ok.
They're perfect on holiday to throw over your bikini while you take a little break from sunbathing and provide a cool cover up in the hot weather. Available in printed fabrics and plain jersey fabrics, the maxi dress is a versatile summer dress that you can wear easily with other items in your wardrobe.
