  • Reluctant to reveal your legs as summer approaches? Try a figure-flattering maxi dress with our edit...

    If you’re feeling reluctant to reveal your legs as summer approaches, don’t panic – fashion is working to your advantage this year. Maxi hemlines are back and the great variety of full length skirts and dress designs on the high street at the moment means you can work a high fashion look without flashing too much flesh.

    The other good news is that maxi skirts and dresses can be incredibly flattering as they lengthen your legs and cover any lumps and bumps you’re not comfortable with – all while keeping you cool in the changeable British climate.

    One of our favourites is this vibrant pink maxi skirt from Marks and Spencer. The bright block colour means it will look great when teamed with a print or a basic hue like black or white. Right now we’d add a bardot style top and fancy sandals, but it would work just as well as a beach cover-up if you’re jetting away soon.
