Topshop: Our Favourite black summer dresses

Well, what a week it’s been. Thursday marked the day of the snap general election. I took the day off to volunteer and also took Friday off too – to watch the count and recover! The election has resulted in a hung parliament with the biggest party being the conservatives, with Theresa May promising to create a government. It’ll be interesting to see what comes next. I expect that within the next 12 months there will be another election – I guess we’ll see.

Anyway, enough of politics! Today, I’ve decided to look at some of the beautiful maxi dresses from Topshop.

Rare Black & Nude Embellished Maxi – £105

Up first is the breathtaking long sleeve plunge dress by Rare. Featuring all over embellishment, a plunge neckline and a front split. This stunning dress is comprised of two layers, the mesh which is embellished and a gorgeous nude lining. This ultra feminine maxi is perfect for any formal events you may be attending – whether it be a day at the races or a garden party. Pair with black strappy heels, and an understated black clutch bag.

Long Sleeve Rose Embroidered Midi – £89

Up next is the sublime long sleeve rose embroidered midi dress. This gorgeous bodycon midi dress features a mesh overlay with stunning silver filigree embroidery. This sophisticated number hugs your curves, while the understated floral embroidery adds a luxurious touch. Pair with black accessories, or for a more eye-catching look why not try silver accessories? We love the Lane clutch in metallic silver from Pauls Boutique. Finish your outfit by sweeping back your hair into an elegant chignon with a silver hair accessory (like these leaf hair clips by Topshop). Beautiful.

Sheer Floral Maxi by Rare – £85

Looking for an eye-catching summer maxi? Look no further than this sheer floral maxi by Rare. This standout number is perfect for holidays in the sun, the beach and garden parties. We love how playful this full-length gown is. The coquettish centre cut out and strap detailing on the bodice, complimented with the see-through skirt make this a supremely sexy number – but not too sexy. Rare have really struck the balance just right with this one. We absolutely adore the intricate embroidery, bringing a brilliant pop to this gown. For a bold summery look, pair with complementing colour accessories – strappy heels, bag and a floppy sunhat. For a nighttime look choose black accessories.
