THE ELEGANT
MAXI DRESS

Be the belle of the ball or the beach with per una’s chic maxi dress, says M&S.com womenswear editor Charlene Barton

This is the kind of dress I used to dream about wearing as a child; fit for a princess, high in her ivory tower as she patiently awaits the arrival of Prince Charming on horseback. Sadly, said Prince is running extremely late (saddle issues, apparently), but the dress, at least, has been made a rather beautiful reality in this per una design. From the elegant maxi silhouette to the delicate peach hue, it exudes an air of sophistication and femininity worthy of any childhood fairytale. It’s versatile, too – think beyond the obvious with styling and you could easily wear it to any summer event. Drop-diamond earrings, open-toe heels and a loose chignon will work perfectly for formal occasions, while natural make-up and flat sandals ensure an effortless finish for day.
