Krisp Black maxi dress for a hot Summer's day

With the weather being rather hot and muggy lately, I’ve been wearing dresses most days. While I often favour bright rather than dark colours at this time of year, this is the perfect black maxi dress for a hot Summer’s day. It’s so comfortable due to the super stretchy waistband, and the skirt section is a very light and cool fabric.

I’ll definitely be taking this maxi dress on my next beach holiday; it’s comfortable, cool, and flattering thanks to the elasticated band that emphasises the waist.

The gathering means you can get away with not ironing it – I think the slight creasing looks deliberate, even if it’s not! I’ll definitely be taking this maxi dress on my next beach holiday; it’s comfortable, cool, and flattering thanks to the elasticated band that emphasises the waist. I reckon you could twist it to pack in your suitcase and it would look just fine…even in my overpacked luggage! At only £19.99 it’s a real bargain, plus it’s available in a couple of other colours too…I may buy another one! For size reference, I’m wearing a M/L.

I kept my accessories neutral with some very old sandals and straw bag (previously seen here). Of course I had to add just a little colour with some tassel earrings which pick up on the red in the chunky bracelet which I scored for £1.50 in a charity shop 🙂

How are you staying cool in the heat? Are maxi dresses your go-to outfit for Summer?

    You look gorgeous, Emma! I adore that black dress. You really can’t beat a floaty dress like that for the summer, can you? <3
