15 maxi dresses to get you through summer and beyond

There's nothing worse than sitting down on a plastic office chair in the height of summer, while wearing a short skirt or pair of shorts, only to stand up hours later and find your thighs are stuck to the aforementioned chair.

But fear not, there is a sartorial saviour in the form of the maxi dress. Light and airy, it gives you enough coverage to save your modesty and it gives you breathing space in the most important areas when it's sweltering outside. Plus, once it gets cold, they're great to wear with tights and a jumper.

So, while the weather's still good, take a look at our pick of the best long dresses around and get shopping.
