You know when summer has hit Britain when it’s time to buy your new summer maxi dress. Although the maxi dress has been on trend for a couple of years now, this season sees a massive increase in the array of colours, patterns, styles and prints to choose from.

So I have let my fingers do the walking and searched online for some seriously summer sun ideas. John Lewis have a great choice of over 200 maxi dresses which can meet all your needs from evening wear to beach side to easy daytime wear maxi dresses.

Pink Dip Dye Maxi Dress

With summer a busy time for weddings, why not try a stylish and chic halter neck dip dyed maxi dress from the Coast range. The one I found features a gorgeous sweetheart neckline with delicately pleated bodice reminiscent of a 50’s inspired style.

The graduation of the baby pink flowing through to a rich deep pink only accentuates the perfection of this dress. And the exaggerated yet sensational chiffon neck tie just completes this halter neck dress to complete exquisiteness.

However, if you are looking for an everyday maxi dress, maybe for the school run or lunch with friends, John Lewis have also catered for these.

Desigual Sindi Dress

There is a gorgeous Desigual Sindi dress which has many subtle features, ideal for daytime wear. It’s been designed with pretty semi sheer capped sleeves, a fitted embroidered bodice forming a deep V neck and a ruched empire line which then leads to the large bold floral printed skirt to gently flow down to the ankles.

If you want something more simple to throw on for a walk to the park or down the beach then take a look at the jersey material shift maxi dresses.

Easy to pull on with no zips or buttons to worry about. Just pure comfort and a relaxed summer feel to them. Whistles have designed a gorgeous black and white striped V-back maxi dress which will look great for a laid back yet on trend stylish look.

So all you have to decide is how many can you fit in your summer wardrobe!! There is definitely a style, shape and pattern to suit all occasions and all of our varying womanly curves, so go and have some fun and splash out on some fun and sassy summer maxi dresses.
