Summer Maxi

Each season I like to post my favourite maxi dress find - check out my previous picks for Autumn, Winter and Spring. Right now, this cotton maxi from Littlewoods is my favourite for the coming summer. The rich berry shades make it perfect for anything from lounging on the beach to strolling around sightseeing. I'd add a purple bolero to cover up the arms and a graduated purple hijab to complement the colour scheme. Simple accessories like gladiator sandals, wooden bangles and a canvas bag finish off a comfortable yet stylish holiday outfit:

Summer Maxi

South printed cotton maxi dress £29, Littlewoods; fine-knit cotton bolero £14.99, Esprit; purple hijab £5.75, Hijab Store Online; Sandy canvas hobo £40, Oasis; Leather Gladiator Sandal £30, Barratts; wood and metal bangle set £8, Miss Selfridge.

The design and the colors are eye-poppingly fantastic masha'Allah! Wonder if this dress comes long enough for someone over 6 feet tall?

Maxi dresses are back in fashion! I do think that u nd to pick the right one that does not have too much going on! I do like this one though! Maxi dresses are so feminine and modest. Makes any woman feel and look beautiful!

Glad you like it! And I agree with Anon 3, for a hijabi, maxi dresses are always in style!

Alexandreya, thanks :)

Deen Designs,

You can always check the 'Tall' section in shops like New Look. Long Tall Sally also have several maxi dresses in right now:
