Max out on stylish summer dresses

There are not many things you can wear that can take you from day to night.  There is also not many things that you can wear that is suitable for on the beach, going shopping, having lunch with the girls or simply enjoying a drink with hubby on a summer's evening.

There is one kind of dress every women should own, that can do all of this and will guarantee you'll look glamourous, feminine and yet feel a little (dare I say) comfortable too.  Yes it's the Maxi dress!  I find my Maxi dresses to be one of the most versatile items of clothing for Summer.

During this time of year I will tend to have in the boot of my car, a pair of flip-flops, sandals, wedges and possibly heels too, and then wherever I go I simply change my footwear, add a little or take off jewellery and find that I'm dressed just right for whatever I'm about to set off and do.

Trends this year of prints and patterns make this dress ever more exciting.  Don't feel you have to splash the cash on this either!  Shops like Monsoon can be overpriced on this style of dress, two of my own favourites are from Therapy @ House of Fraser, originally priced at £40 but I picked them up at £20 each in the sale last year - and I will be wearing again this summer.
