With the right maxi dress, you can effortlessly dress for any occasion, whether it’s a day in the office, lounging at the beach or the pool, popping out for a day of shopping or sneaking out for that summer evening drink you’ve been craving since the sun popped its long-forgotten head from behind the winter clouds.

Once you’ve found the right maxi, everything is easy. All that’s left is to accessorise it with your personal style and you’ll be ready for whatever these rare sunny days throw at you. To get you started, here are 3 of our favourite ways to style your maxi dress to look hot while staying cool all summer long.

1. Beach babe ready

Whether you’re spending a day at the beach or lounging poolside, layer a light, floaty maxi dress over your favourite bikini or swimming costume and pair with some metallic sandals, designer shades and an oversized sun hat for an effortlessly stylish look. Pop a book, blanket and that super-important sun cream in a straw tote to complete the look and ensure you’re never without your essentials.

2. All day long

Maxi dresses always look fabulous with a cropped denim jacket. Don’t ask why, they just do! For that perfect casual-chic look pop a simple denim jacket over a print maxi and keep a pair of statement sunglasses handy to keep you comfortable and stylish from sight-seeing to the bars. Not sure what maxi is best? Try muted colours and a floral or palm print like the maxi dresses found at for a chic look which won’t break the bank.

3. Stand out

Not sure whether your maxi can keep you going all night long? Try a bright coloured maxi dress with a pair of strappy black heals and a cute clutch to be night-out-ready in no time. For added effect, splash on some red lipstick and add a pair of tassel earrings and you’ll be turning heads for all the right reasons all night!
