Summer is fast approaching (honest - pay no attention to the hail we saw today Londoners) and the maxi dress is the dress du jour! It will certainly work long term too, as it is figure flattering and so easy to wear. Every suitcase should contain at least one gorgeous organic / vintage maxi dress to help you look bohemian-chic on your next summer holiday!
Alligator Maxi Dress - Gypsy 05
Made in Hollywood, USA
Organic Cotton Jersey
I'm loving the way Miss Simpson (or is it Mrs. Wentz now?) is wearing this cool black maxi with obligatory hippy headband and long pendant. Also available in red, blue or purple.
Purchase at Gypsy O5 for $149
Organic Maxi Dress - Gypsy 05
Made in Hollywood, USA (solar powered factory)
The twisted straps, v-neck line and tantalising array of summer approved colours (lipstick red, plum, green and many more) have attracted the attention of stars such as Christina Aguilera, Hayden Panettiere, Lauren Conrad (wearing lipstick red maxi in image above) and Anna Kournikova (wearing plum above) who have all been spotted wearing this stylish yet comfortable dress.
Purchase at Gypsy 05 for $100
UK peeps can purchase at Bunny Hug for £73.40
Ombre Maxi Dress - Gypsy 05
Made in Hollywood, USA
Ombre is still quite a big trend and actress, Kate Hudson (pictured above) proves just how great the charcoal maxi dress looks for a chic and casual day out. Also available in many other colours such as green, yellow and blue.
Purchase at Gypsy 05 for $119
Sky Blue Leah Halter Dress - Eco Chic
Handmade in Miami
Soy / Organic Cotton
It's not hard to see why this is currently Eco Chic's bestselling dress. I love the colour and gorgeous gathering of the halter neckline (very Grecian goddessy).
Purchase at Etsy (Eco Chic) for $115
Long Halter Dress - Stewart + Brown
Made in the USA
This beautiful plum printed dress requires an immediate trip to Hawaii, Tahiti or anywhere exotic! Wear it shopping, strolling on the beach, sipping drinks by the pool or in your London flat while web surfing luxury hotels in the Pacific (also available in a black sand print).
Vintage Halter Neck Maxi Dress - Love Miss Daisy
This pretty paisley print will stand out proudly next to other one toned maxi dresses and the fact it is 1970's vintage, adds a genuine infusion of hippy history!
Purchase at Love Miss Daisy for £22
Fuchsia Roxie Maxi Dress - Komodo
Made in Nepal (Made-By member)
Organic cotton voile
Komodo have been doing altruistic fashion deeds for a very long time, so you know you can always rely on them for some genuine eco-friendly wardrobe staples. This v-neck summer maxi dress is no exception and looks great in either the fuchsia or green shades!
Purchase at Bochica for £50
Vintage 1970s Tomato Red Maxi Dress - Love Miss Daisy
You can't go wrong with a sultry red dress. This vintage one is eye-catching for all the right reasons and features beautiful straps that have a 'braid of sparkle and pearlescent sequins'. Very nice!
Purchase at Love Miss Daisy for £35 (UK Size 16)
Vintage 70s Black and White Floral Maxi - Ramona West
A dressier version of the maxi dress that would look quite divine paired with chunky wedge heels. The black and white pattern creates a classic and sophisticated look (comes with matching adjustable belt and is fully lined).
Purchase at Etsy (Ramona West) for $55 (size S/M)
