May is the month of the maxis!! I know no one has told whoever is in charge of the weather, but ladies, it’s time to shed some layers, pack away the black tights, paint the toe nails and embrace summer as best you can. Unless you’ve had a sun holiday in the last month, or you’re an expert in fake tan, the thought of showing off your winter white legs is a little daunting, to say the least. That’s why you need to invest in a maxi dress.
Maxi dresses are the perfect transition piece for your wardrobe at this time of year. Ok, you’ll probably still need a little cardi / shrug to keep you warm, but they are definitely the best option to bring you from winter to summer. They’re comfortable, they’re uber cool and they’re ultra glam! And no you don’t have to be tall to wear them (a very common misconception!!).
We have some fab options at the moment from Italian label Save the Queen, bright and beautiful. If you’re a little scared of print, there are some great options also from French label Indies, simple and elegant.
Every woman needs at least one maxi dress in the wardrobe, regardless of your size or height. I promise you, if you embrace the maxi dress it will become your best friend and it’s a true wardrobe workhorse. Meaning it will take you anywhere. Just change your shoes and jewellery and you can create a totally different look. Wear your maxi to a wedding with killer heels and a small headpiece. Wear it with wedges, a loose knitted cardi and a big bag for a day time chic look. Wear it with flip flops on holidays for a romantic walk on the beach. If you try it, you’ll love it!
