One of our all time favourite dresses at Smitten HQ is the maxi dress- the Boat Neck Maxi dress to be precise. It's elegant, comfortable, chic, feminine and versatile.. and thats not taking into account its luxurious fabrics qualities (which you can read all about in our previous post.)


Since our original release of the Boat Neck Maxi Dress, we released a few new maxi's to the dress collection. Something that sets our dresses apart from many others is their classic and timeless designs, without any unwanted or un-necessary add ons. This enables you to make it your own and style it to fit your lifestyle. 

Our gorgeous Maxi dresses are perfect for the beach plus great UV protection for delicate areas like your décolletage) however, is also perfect wedding attire. Swap those thongs for some heels and pearl earrings and the look is completely transformed. 

So, after talking up our much loved (and best selling) Boat Neck Maxi Dress lets take a closer look and explore the gorgeous array of colours and prints it's available in; 

Our next featured dress is our Hong Kong inspired Maxi, aptly named the Kowloon dress. Its design so elegant and demure, it does the hard work of creating a styled look for you.

Our Kowloon Maxi Dress is designed with modesty in mind and a little sass on the side! The short sleeves and high neckline will protect your shoulders and neck from the harsh elements whilst the single, knee height, split on each side adds a little spark to your weekend styling. Whats not to love? Be quick because these babies are flying out the door! 


Similar to the Kowloon, but a little more casual, is the T-Shirt Maxi Dress. This design has slightly longer and wider sleeve length and no side split or added seaming. Available in both a Coal and Indigo stripe this dress is sure to be a go to number when you just want to throw something on; 

This next maxi is a little more sexy. With a flattering V neckline and subtle yet sassy side split you will be sure to turn heads. Flattering on all body shapes and sizes, this dress skims tummies and is beautifully light for your next Summer brunch date or beach trip.

Available in three gorgeous options, plain black, black abbey floral or hot coral. It will be hard to stop at 1 ;)
