Maxi fever

Maybe it's because I'm having some serious thigh issues at the moment (or should that be serious cupcake issues? It's close to an addiction.), or the wide range of designs available, but I feel like it's time for me to buy a great summer maxi.

I can't see any disadvantage: they look effortlessly cool even without accessories, there's NO issues with flashing, and they flatter everyone!

Here are some of my favourite looks on celebrities:

I do love a bit of tie-dye, and these maxi dress looks cool and summery, and suits Lauren and Vanessa's petite frames. Simple, wavy hair and a pendant necklace emphasize the simplicity of the look.

Hayden Panettiere proves that maxi dresses can suit short girls! Plain gladiators make for a casual, relaxed outfit.

The paisley print and long sleeves make for a 70s style hippy dress, with a waist tie to add definition.

However us normal people can also get a piece of the action, for a fraction of the price:
I love the Hawaiian-style print on this dress from Topshop for a very reasonable £30!

This is a sleek, pretty design: I love the lace detail around the neckline. From Oasis at Asos, £50.

Another Oasis creation,with a 70s look similar to Nicole Richie's style. I love the bluey-purple colour scheme, so I will definitely be picking this up the second I have £80 to spare :o

Peace out!
