Maxi Dress to Impress.

Summer is looming, and I'm sure that you, like I cannot wait to crack out your shorts and shades and enjoy some much deserved sun. I've had my eye on maxi dresses for a while now and think they are the perfect way to add a little sophistication to our summer wardrobes. I have always been a great fan of boho chic but have recently fallen in love with the soft chiffon and sheer maxis which just look so luscious! Here are a few gorgeous maxis I have discovered by Chloe. Naturally known for its romantic influences and loosely draped gowns the two Chloe maxis do not fail to disappoint and are in my opinion the height of elegance!

Another of my personal favourites it this Sass & Bide maxi. It combines the graceful and flowing edges of the dress with tough embellishments at the chest and just under the bust giving the dress more of an edge. So beautiful - don't you agree!?

Although I simply adore these nude tones I still cannot deny my passion for the wonderful bold and vibrant colours that Stella McCartney often uses along with the flawless Roberto Cavalli

Okay so the secret is I'm not actually a millionaire that can buy all of these stunning maxi dresses but I have been looking at some more...affordable dresses on the highstreet and have found that River Island do some lovely ones along with few from New Look. They haven't quite got the essence of the soft maxis yet but have some pretty printed ones which I hop to purchase soon. Warehouse is a winner with a range of maxis, a few having the same type of look as the Sass & Bide. I'd watch out for Zara too as they often have such a-mazing Chloe-esque maxi dresses and just perfect clothes in general (slightly biased here;p) Topshop's range is a little disappointing in my opinion apart from a sheer one where a slip is worn underneath, even so, I'd say it was pretty dull!
Tell me what you think, I'd love to hear your opinion on these maxi's :)
Lots of Love Alesha xo
