The maxi dress has to be on your Must Have list for summer wardrobe. Whatever your height, I always fine maxi dresses to be really flattering. They make every woman look amazingly statuesque. They are also extremely versatile to style, whether it for dressing up to a wedding or down for a casual walk in the park, a maxi dress is always a winner.

Here are some favourites of Why Not?


Coral Karma

There is nothing but good vibes about this dress. In coral, the queen bee colour of the season, with a modern twist of Grecian styled silk draping. This maxi would be stunning for a summer wedding with some delicate gold bracelets and a pale peach box clutch.

Carven – Cut-out hammered-silk dress


Tribal Instinct

Balmain do rock and roll chic and this is no exception, an uber cool and an effortless maxi. It has wow factor with the draped silhouette and low cut back. A great choice for a festival with a cool pair of shades.

Balmain – Asymetric Silk Maxi Dress

Sleek & Sexy

This is the dress to don if you want to make an impression on a first date or if you have a night out with the girls. This dress has a feminine silhouette, but with a sexy asymmetric drape in the fabric which gives it an edge. Wear with gladiator heels and a black blazer to complete the look and you’ll be ready to hit the town.

Helmut Lang – Orbit Draped Chiffon Maxi



Sunshine and Seashells

Italian glamour from the Italian master himself, Roberto Cavalli. With stunning sequinned detail this is something special. The shell-print silk kaftan would be perfect for your holiday (in where else but Italy ofcourse) where it can take you from day, with sandal flats, to evening with golden strappy heels and statement jewellery.

The Grass Is Always Greener

The maxi is a great style option for keeping cool in the hotter months, it’s a lot of fabric, but it makes even more of a statement with a fantastic print. All you need for this one the sunshine and a smile.
