With the prospect of long hot days and nights ahead, the need to be comfortably but stylishly cool is imperative.

For effortless and fool-proof summer dressing, a black maxi dress is your style go-to when the festive season is in full swing.  So versatile, the black maxi dress provides a flowing silhouette to flitter about your many social activities in comfortable ease.

Are you attending a casual BBQ lunch with the extended family?  Opt for a strapless version paired with a jeweled thong.  Hosting evening Christmas drinks?  A silk halter-style paired with an on-trend block heel and ‘shiny’ jewellery will ensure you’re a chic and fashionable hostess. Heading out for an intimate family picnic?  You can’t go past an easy-wear shoestring style and leather flats.

Whether your style preference is boho chic, understated glamour or smart and elegant, in luxe-to-less options or luxury labels, add this style gem to your wardrobe and you will be sizzling in style this summer.

Style N.B.  – Remember the golden rule of maxi dressing – beware the ‘too long’ dress – hem should sit a few centimetres above the flat foot or heel of your shoe.
