Four Favourite Maxi Dresses

Maxi dresses have been my obsession lately. Theyve been popular for years but Ive only just came round to the idea of them, mainly because I thought most of them would be miles too long for my lil' stumpy body! However Ive fallen in love with their flowy, elegant but still somewhat sexy ways and these are my favourites at the moment!

1. This khaki tie back dress is all about the detail in the back, which is what is shown here. The front is rather plain and scoop neck, which could quickly be spiced up with a statement necklace. I just love the back detail of this, its a really pretty way of showing some skin in an otherwise rather covered up outfit. £35 - Miss Selfridge.

2. Ive actually already bought this paisley strapless dress as I loved it at first sight. I love the print and like how it ties in at my smallest point, accentuating my figure so I dont look swamped in a load of printed material, fantastic! Its a really nice one r sitting out in the sun, no straps = good tanning dress! It is from the petite section so not for everyone but great to find a pretty maxi that will fit us shorter girls nicely. £33 - Miss Selfridge

3. Another one Ive already purchased and must do and OOTD with this one as its my new favourite. I find this to be a great day-night option with the darker print and thigh high split. its also rouched at the hip which is very flattering. I wear this with black sandals and my leather jacket in the daytime, and its long enough to wear with heels for the night. £35 - River Island

4. I could imagine wearing this orange ombre dress to a beautiful summer wedding (someone have one so I have a reason to buy it!). Its chiffon so would be very floaty and would feel very feminine to wear. Id love to air it with gold jewellery and a nice coral lipstick. £35 - River Island

So Ive already bought 2 out of 4, lets see how long I hold out before grabbing the others!
