Maxi dresses are this season’s go-to dress length for parties, weekends and work. Shop our favourite styles…
Not one for mini or midi dresses this summer? You’ll be pleased to hear maxi dresses are still on the agenda for the 2019 summer trends. But make no mistake, there’s nothing classic about this season’s take on the wardrobe essential. With luxurious textures clashes, 70s bohemian and minimal 90s styles hitting the rails, there’s never been a better time to update your dress collection.
Maxi dress trends
Are you feeling this season’s minimalist mood? Then references the 90s with silk and velvet slip dresses, strapless column dresses and everyday-ready jumper dresses. H&M maxi dresses are suitably paired back and the perfect holiday essential.
Alternatively, are you into all things boho and feminine? We’ve got a feeling you’ll love a floaty printed floor-sweeper. Complete your throwback look with an oh-so-chic fringed bag and denim jacket. There are some amazing Ganni dresses in the sale right now.
If you like a pop of colour, then you’re in luck. We’ve got everything from bright florals to bright checks, with a splash of neon. See Tory Burch maxi dresses and Max Mara dresses for some serious colour blocking. Wallflowers, abstain.
Wedding guest outfit ideas
If the invites are racking up for this summer’s weddings, bag yourself a versatile floor-skimmer that can be reworked throughout the season. Maxi dresses are a great choice for formal occasions when complemented with a statement clutch and strappy heels – Zimmermann, Kitri and Rixo are among our go-to brands when it comes to choosing something special.
If you want to try your hand at one of this season’s more daring trends, consider shopping for maxi dresses with a lace insert or cut-out detail. Team with statement sandals for a striking new season look. We love high street brands Zara, & Other Stories and Mango for trendier pieces.
From cosy weekend knitted staples to workwear-appropriate long shirts, or even a summer-holiday ready off-the-shoulder chambray number, there’s a dress for all shapes, styles and budgets right here.

Your favorite classic teen movie says a lot about you. It’s a statement about your preferred aesthetics and your taste level. One single reference tells new friends and first dates everything they need to know, from how popular you were in high school to how likely you are to currently own a Cher Horowitz-style cropped plaid skirt suit. Clueless fans have a CliffsNotes understanding of the classics and a deep-seated belief in the transformative powers of a makeover (they love Queer Eye). Superbad aficionados think they’re a lot funnier than they are, and secretly wonder if #MeToo has gone too far. John Hughes diehards have unhealthy romantic relationships, The Craft enthusiasts live in Bushwick, and Cruel Intentions stans have FetLife accounts and ship Cersei and Jaime Lannister.
And then there’s 10 Things I Hate About You. Twenty years later, this movie is still by far the best classic teen flick to associate yourself with. It’s less basic than Mean Girls, more highbrow than Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and isn’t totally cringeworthy by 2019 standards (see: Grease, Sixteen Candles). Identifying with 10 Things I Hate About You tells the world that you also know who The Raincoats are, and that you can appreciate the rarified delights of a high school rom-com that culminates in a Shakespearean sonnet. Just don’t be that guy who feels the need to point out that Kat’s final homework assignment isn’t in iambic pentameter.
The iconic 1999 adaptation takes Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew and gives it a riot grrrl twist. The clunky plot finds two Seattle sisters, Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik) and Katarina Stratford (Julia Stiles), being wooed, respectively, by a very fresh-faced Joseph Gordon-Levitt and breakout star Heath Ledger. Kat is an outspoken feminist and literal ball-buster, which apparently makes her the most undateable senior at Padua High, despite the fact that she is literally Julia Stiles and a thousand times cooler than the “unwashed miscreants” she goes to school with. The Stratford sisters’ comically-overprotective dad (Larry Miller) decrees that the boy-crazy Bianca can only date when Kat does. Gordon-Levitt’s Cameron convinces the most popular and odious boy in school (Andrew Keegan) to pay Ledger’s Patrick Verona to take Kat out, at which point Cameron plans to swoop in and romance Bianca himself.

Virgil Abloh paid homage to Michael Jackson during his second Louis Vuitton runway show this past January. It was clear the Abloh, like many others, was influenced by Jackson’s style, music, and overall presence. Since the premiere of the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, a slew companies have removed the pop icon’s songs, music videos and memorabilia from their respective platforms to show their solidarity with the alleged victims. Abloh and Louis Vuitton have decided to join the movement by pulling all Michael Jackson-themed clothing from their fall menswear collection.
In a statement to WWD, Abloh said, “I am aware that in light of this documentary the show has caused emotional reactions. I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights.” In paying homage to Jackson in the collection, he said his “intention for this show was to refer to Michael Jackson as a pop culture artist. It referred only to his public life that we all know and to his legacy that has influenced a whole generation of artists and designers.”
This is a bold move considering the entire collection was inspired by the artists. From the show invitations to the background music, it was clear that Jackson was a huge inspiration to the designer. If you’re not familiar with the F/W 2019 collection, take a look at some of the looks that hit the runway.
