Work-Appropriate Maxi Dresses

This season, we’re being maximalists when it comes to dressing. We’ve already been won over by the jersey maxi and the maxi skirt, and now our other summer failsafe – the shirtdress – is getting supersized too.

Ideal for that most tricky of sartorial situations – hot weather in the city – they look both polished and fuss-free, plus are endlessly versatile.

Just team with flat sandals off-duty, a block heel at work, or a stiletto boot come evening – it really is that simple. Max out with our pick of the best…
