Halter Neck Maxi Dress

In the words of Bob Marley “The sun is shining and the weather is sweet.” This blog includes some of my favourite summer fashions from dresses to shorts, wellies to sandals, all things colourful, bright and beautiful.

Starting off with the maxi dress, everyone women’s must have item. What I love most about maxi dresses is there availability to all, no matter what size or shape you are everyone can look great in a maxi dress and they also serve multiple purposes. Whether you need a lightweight dress for walks on the beach or something more glamorous for a party maxi dresses are the ideal item for all.

Choosing maxi dresses can be quiet difficult, because of their popularity there is now hundreds of different styles and fits to choose from. Look at my top 10 maxi dresses to find one right for you.

New to this summer are crop tops, thanks to Topshop we have all got back on the crunches and sit-ups to get the ultimate flat stomach. Still need convincing that showing off your midriff is sexy well ladies crop tops are a massive hit amongst the celebs this year and perfect for the festival season. Mischa Barton was snapped in this belly- baring edgy look with black smokey eyes and studded heels.

Again due to the popularity in the return of the crop top there are now so many different styles to choose from. You can also layer the top and team with a plain vest top underneath or boob tube. Here are some of my favourite styles from high street brands Topshop, New Look, My1stWish and Miss Selfridge.
