Dress with maxi-mum effect

Yes maxi-dresses are still the garm of choice for summer days; they are as popular as they have ever been; you only have to hit the high street to see just how popular they are with hundreds to choose from in all colours and fabrics. This is fab news, they are the singularly most feminine and flattering piece of clothing you can wear, but accessorising them well could be an issue. The natural choices of accessories of course, are gladiators and chunky jewellery which do work wonderfully; but there is a more effective partner for your favourite maxi…

Fashion Maths: One gorgeous Maxi dress + one cropped denim jacket = great, feminine, summer outfit.

All you have to do is remember these simple rules, the denim jacket has to be light blue – a perfect summer shade, hip-length – slouchy will not work with your maxi-dress and the sleeves should be turned up at the elbow to complete the laid-back look and the collar should be worn up for an edgy feel to your outfit.

Nicole Richie Cheryl Cole Rihanna maxi dress denim jacket

Nicole Richie (of course) Cheryl Cole and Rihanna all know how to do denim with their Maxi-dresses. If you are bored with the usual floral / ethnic / bo-ho maxi-dress prints, then go for a block neutral colour like Rihanna, or a faux two-piece like this Alice & Olivia dress that Cheryl is wearing.

New Look and Topshop both have great fitted denim jackets at €40 and €60
