Show me a girl who doesn’t look amazing in a maxi dress; exactly, you can’t, because the maxi is capable of flattering every build and body type, elongating the legs and looking effortless elegant for every occasion. And it seems that Blue Vanilla have stolen the style stakes this summer with the sizzling hot aztec print number that is sure to turn heads.
Here I am wearing a size UK8 and it clings to my curves and drapes in all the right places. With a beautiful keyhole bust feature and side split up to the mid thigh, this dress is flirtatiously foxy and leaves me walking with a wiggle. I’m wearing my maxi without a bra because of the low cut sides and plunging neckline, but if you don’t feel as brave then a strapless bra or contrasting balconette would work just as well.
Made from a soft jersey fabric it is incredibly soft, cool and comfortable to move about in, without being restrictive thanks to the side splits. The pattern is a beautiful aztec with monochrome, pink and blue that very much puts me in mind of a peacock on parade and it’s certainly eye catching. The dress itself is quite a statement and needs very little accessories, so I’m keeping mine plain with a brown shoulder satchel and sandals, beach bum hair and minimal makeup for a casual daywear look, and nude heels, a matching clutch, hair up and a smokey eye for evening wear.
Blue Vanilla have yet again delivered a stunning summer sizzler with a very affordable price tag of just £22.00. Now that’s something to celebrate!
