Push your summer style to the maxi with this Caroline Flack x River Island yellow dress

Versatile, stylish and comfortable: the maxi dress is a summer wardrobe staple, and our love affair is still going strong this season. From garden parties to days out at the races, the humble maxi is the perfect accompaniment to any summer event. Flowing, lightweight material will ensure you keep your cool whatever the weather, while still looking elegant. For a SS18 update, team ruffles and florals with chunky platforms and round wireframe glasses to channel your inner 70s icon, as seen on Gucci runways. Looking to give your maxi that extra cool edge? Look no further than this style inspo from blogger and model, Amy Neville, from Amy Nev Fashion Diaries. She teams her Caroline Flack x River Island maxi with Gucci-style embroidered white trainers, and metallic chain bag for a final flourish. The trainers not only add a casual luxe touch, they also keep things practical for any outdoors events.
