THE MODERN WAY TO WEAR A MAXI THIS SUMMER

Thanks to its simple, breezy silhouette the maxi dress is undoubtedly the easiest outfit to throw on and go when the weather hots up unexpectedly and catches you unawares, as it so often does in bonny old England. A lightweight linen maxi is a holiday must have but style yours correctly and you can get endless wear out of it at home too. The floor-skimming length of the maxi dress means it already has the potential to be one of the most dramatic looks in your wardrobe and taking yours from the beach to the street takes just a little extra attention when it comes to your accessories.  

The Sarah Pacini Linen Maxi Dress is one of our favourite new arrivals for spring summer 2017. With these failsafe outfit upgrades, it’s set to become one of your summer staples too.

FORGO THE FLIP FLOPS

You have to forgo the flip flops if you’re to bring your maxi dress from the sands to the street. Trading your Havaianas for flat sandals in black or tan leather will keep your look carefree and bohemian, while espadrille wedges with an ankle tie will have the same effect and add some extra height.

WEAR WITH WHITE SNEAKERS

Box-fresh white trainers have become intrinsic to our off duty looks and they add an instant nonchalance to maxi dresses. Some of the most effortless ladies in fashion, Sienna Miller, Karlie Kloss and Vogue’s Sarah Harris included, are all known for their love of the simple white trainer.

LAYER IT UP

The fastest way to toughen up a feminine maxi dress is by throwing on a leather biker or denim jacket. A jacket is also a great way to add structure to a fuller dress, a trick loved by stylists.
