Good news for everyone who loved last summer maxi dresses – these floating, airy dresses are back for this summer too. Maxi dresses are a part of the summer’s 1970s look, which was very popular on the Spring Summer 2017 Catwalks and they are very easy to wear. You can choose virtually any color or print with floral prints being particularly on trend for this year and the maxi dress looks great with wedge sandals for a full on 70s look or flat sandals for the more boho chic look. These dresses flatter most body types, choose one that isn’t too clingy if you have a fuller figure, and will help to update your look for summer whilst also keeping you cool.
Bright colors are also big news for this summer and were seen in many of the top designers catwalk collections. Virtually every shade imaginable was seen from bold neon’s to cornflower blues, ultra violet, deep pink, jewel green, tangerine and bright yellow. Forget neutral tones, this season is all about turning up the color. Bright colors are perfect for the warmer weather and look great with your holiday suntan.

It’s generally sensible advice to wear looser fitting clothes in the summer months, tight and restrictive clothes can leave you feeling hot and uncomfortable. As well as the maxi dress there are lots of other styles of long flowing dresses coming into the shops for this season. The head to toe white look was popular on this season’s catwalks so you could choose one of the romantic 70s inspired Broiderie Anglais trimmed white dresses or an embroidered white peasant style tunic over white linen slim fit pants. White helps to reflect heat making it a sensible choice for summer clothing.
Shoe lovers will have lots to choose from this season and the good news is that sky-high stiletto heels are taking a back seat for a while. If you like your shoes to give you a bit of extra height then wedges are the choice for you this season and what’s more they are usually more comfortable to wear and easier to walk in than stilettos. Wedges are also an important part of the summer’s 70s fashion trend so will instantly update your look. If you prefer something more feminine then you could opt for kitten heels or ballerina pumps which were also popular looks on this season’s catwalks.
