Super luxe maxi dresses from Selfridges

Question – When is a maxi dress not a maxi dress?

Answer – when it is a super luxe maxi dress from Selfridges of course!

Selfridges currently has a range of maxi dresses that are enough to make you seriously drool. From a host of designers who read like a who’s who of fashion, there are designs that are just made for the poolside bar from Michael Kors and Mara Hoffman and printed versions from Diane Von Furstenberg that show that she has lost non of the iconic talent that made her wrap dress so successful.

I love the Angelina Jolie style black draped dress from Helmet Lang, a classic look that requires no adornment, whilst Cavalli and Stella McCartney embrace colour in showstopping designs using the flamboyance of florals and lace.

Miss Selfridge evening jackets – a style must have.

If you can’t afford to buy lots of different outfits for going out this season, then it might be worth investing in a statement piece that can turn any outfit into a party outfit. My top investment piece this season has to be the evening jacket. Miss Selfridge currently has a fabulous collection of jackets that can be worn over your little black dress to add glitz and glamour, but can also be worn most stylishly over skinny jeans or simple black trousers and a cami to create lots of different looks for so many different evening occasions, from the cinema to a smart restaurant, and also to any glamorous party.

Cowgirl styling from Spartoo

This Summer has been one that weatherwise, we would’ve been happy to miss. Although we would all prefer to be in flip flops and sandals, the torrential conditions have meant we have had to think outside the box for our shoes. In many cases, shoes have been abandoned altogether and stylish celebrities have taken a tip from the Wild West and invested in a pair of cool cowboy boots. Kate Bosworth sported Western style at Coachella with her cool cowgirl styled shirt, and savvy fashionista’s like Vanessa Hudgens,Zoe Saldana, and Taylor Swift have all adopted the trend, whilst Nicole Richie is another big fan of the boots. Even the Duchess of Cambridge got in on the act with when she attended the Calgary Rodeo in a Alice Temperley shirt and brown leather cowboy boots.

Fab footwear brand Spartoo have an amazing range of Cowboy boots, and the great news is that many are now available in their summer sale. You can save over £100 on some lines of Ash boots, whilst for true Queens of the Rodeo,  a pair of Buffalo boots are an absolute must, as well as being a total steal. These boots are a real investment, they look great with a floaty dress in Summer, but will carry you straight into the autumn months and right through to winter. And being leather, they will only look better when they age, so you’re onto a complete winner!
