Versatile and often more comfortable than midi dresses or minis, a floaty maxi dress is your key to effortless glamour. Whether you’re wearing a casual piece inspired by resort wear and glam boho styling or opting for a stunning, floor length gown for a special event, maxi dresses always have a dreamy, romantic appeal.
Perfect for extra special parties where you want to create a bold look, our trending maxis feature glamorous cut outs and strappy necklines. Often made with stretch knit materials or crepe, these bodycon maxi dresses will help you make an entrance. Stick with classic black for formal dinner events and charity balls, and embrace bright pink and blues for milestone birthday parties.
For those who want a more modest look, try a long sleeve maxi dress. These designs often come with a soft, blouson sleeve that helps to achieve a modern prairie feel. Prairie dressing evokes a playful and whimsical feel, making it perfect for weddings, anniversaries, and special family occasions like christenings. We especially love this style when it’s teamed back with straw or rattan accessories. The light and breezy fabrics are a perfect match to shoes and bags made of natural fibres.
For graduations, school formals and end-of-year functions we suggest strapless or one-shoulder maxi dresses. Guaranteed to make a striking statement, these styles come in luxe finishes and fabrics. Try a glittering maxi and pair with silver accessories for the ultimate in high shine glam. Or, try a floral maxi dress for an elevated take on boho style. Team with sky-high heels and statement earrings, and don’t forget the long, beachy waves to complete the look.
