Obsessed to the Max

July 21, 2013

This summer, which can you believe we have actually had, I have been obsessed with everything MAXI. Maxi or pencil skirts and long flowing maxi dresses. Of course I love wearing little shorts and skirts like everyone else, but unlike everyone else I only tend to wear my high waisted denim shorts and casual crop tops at festivals and by the poolside. When it comes to a shopping trip or evening meal I would much rather be covered up and cool than extremely exposed and self concious.

What is it with the English mentality to wear as little clothing as possible when the sun comes out? Do we really want to see eachother’s bum cheeks or rolls of fat on our trip to the supermarket – no thank you! Here are a few solutions that I have not stopped wearing over the last month, so comfortable and highly versatile. The maxi style works with heels or flats, crop tops or blouses, generally whatever look you go for, I’m certain you can make it work with a maxi style.

Asos Black Maxi

Asos Maxi Dress with back split. £18.00 I don’t think I have worn this on it’s own once, I prefer to layer a classic white Tee over the top or an elegant cream blouse.

New Look maxi blue

New Look Navy Maxi. £14.99 The navy maxi is such a good wardrobe investment because unlike black it is slightly more summery and so can be worn with more summer wardrobe staples. I love belting it and putting it with a long navy cardigan if there’s a cool breeze.

Oasis Pleated maxi

Oasis Pleated Maxi Dress in White. £70.00 Just perfect for a smart evening meal or lunch date. What I love about white in the summer is the endless jewellery combinations you can experiment with, turquoise is one of my favourites.

Topshop Black Pencil

Topshop double layer tube skirt. £20.00 The classic black pencil skirt is always present in my winter and summer wardrobe. Perfect with tights and heels in the winter and just as gorgeous with black flat sandals and a white T shirt or crop top.

Great picks, love the maxi dress! I totally agree with you — seeing people practically naked in the summer months is not always so pleasurable haha!

I love maxi-skirts!! but I do not possess a single one, which bugs me like crazy. Everytime I went shopping lately I literally tried on every maxi skirt I saw and I liked none of them on me… I don’t know what is wrong with me XD
I agree on the covering up part tho-but here in Germany it is not warm enough for mini-shorts anyway 😀
