Summer is here and the search for the ultimate summer dress has begun!

A great summer dress should be versatile enough to take you straight from the beach to a glam pool party. Maxi dresses are always going to look chic and effortless on because they tend to elongate the body.

You don't have to spend too much money. Check out the local chain stores and youll find some great steals that won't break the bank.

This way, instead of splurging on just one dress, you'll be able to afford several. Then just stock up on some great accessories and you'll be sorted for summer!

Style Blog's favourite chain store maxi dress steals are:


This blue column-like maxi dress is just so easy to wear. The colour is amazing; blue suits just about everyone and anyone. Wear it with a statement cuff and a chunky platform wedge shoe.

A black dress is a versatile must-have piece for every womans wardrobe. The graphic black and white detailing on the bust of this dress draws the eye in. Pair it back with some flat sandals or some sky-high strappy ones.


Colour is everywhere this summer. We're in love with Portmans green maxi dress. It's so feminine and gorgeous! Wear it with a metallic belt and accessories such as long, dangly and super glamorous earrings.


Max's black and white chevron striped maxi dress is really flattering on. The pattern lengthens the body. You certainly won't be a wallflower in this number! Team it up with some contrasting accessories and you'll be the talk of the party (in a good way that is!)

Have fun out there and see you all next week!
