Summer Must Have - No 4 - The Maxi Dress

It feels like I should be reflecting on 10 years of marriage today but oh no, I'm talking dresses. Happy Anniversary Mr SGS!
So bit of colour today as I show you my favourite maxi dresses for this summer. 
What more do I need to say about the maxi? Perfect for our mixed weather and for those of us shy about showing our legs. Make sure you find one that nips you in where you are at your slimmest and it should be long enough to skim the ground.
Now I wrote this before I bought my super versatile Tesco maxi so I'll just add the link in here for those of you who missed that post last week 
Here are the rest of my high street favourites..

First up, cheap as chips in 4 colours. You've got to love H&M!
H&M Jersey Maxi Dress
Boohoo have these gorgeous twist front dresses in both black and purple. Only £20!
Jess Crossover Front Dress
I like the sound of the built in tummy control in this next maxi dress from Next. Definitely going to check it out when I'm in store.
Next Turquoise Shape-Enhancing Maxi (also available in stone)
This floral one from Next also caught my eye - would work so well with a denim jacket:
Next Floral Print Maxi
Loving the Missoni inspired print on this next one from TK Maxx. It's also got a back and shoulders on it so you can wear a bra/vest underneath. Great neutral colours here too.
Chelsea & Theodore Print Maxi Dress
Finally, leaving you with a Boden favourite. Love these as the jersey is a gorgeous weight and quality. A tad pricy for some but the plain colours are a good investment. If you like but feel it's outside your price range, check out the sale later in the summer.
Boden Jersey Maxi Dress
A welcome bit of colour for today's summer essential - just one more to go tomorrow!
