Maxi dresses are this season's go-to dress length for parties, weekends and work. Shop our favourite styles...
Maxi dresses are the original new season-ready item, but there’s nothing classic about this season’s take on the wardrobe essential. With luxurious textures clashes and minimal 90s styles hitting the rails,there’s never been a better time to update your dress collection.
Are you feeling this season’s minimalist mood? Then references the 90s with silk and velvet slip dresses, strapless column dresses and everyday-ready jumper dresses.
Alternatively, are you into all things boho and feminine? We’ve got a feeling you’ll love IRO’s floaty printed floor-sweeper. Complete your throwback look with an oh-so-chic fringed bag and denim jacket.
If the invites are racking up for this summer’s weddings, bag yourself a versatile floor-skimmer that can be reworked throughout the season. Maxi dresses are a great choice for formal occasions when complemented with a statement clutch and strappy heels – Needle & Thread, Adam Lippes and The Row are among our go-to brands when it comes to choosing something special.
If you want to try your hand at one of this season’s more daring trends, consider shopping for maxi dresses with a lace insert or cut-out detail. Team with statement flats for a striking new season look.
From cosy weekend knitted staples to workwear-appropriate long shirts,or even a summer-holiday ready off-the-shoulder chambray number, there’s a dress for all shapes, styles and budgets right here.
We’ve scoured the high street and designer fashion stores to find the best maxi dresses in the shops right now.
