A maxi dress is a simple solution to that early morning ‘what do I wear today?’ panic, thanks to its versatility. And with a few styling tricks – such as layering a polo neck or throwing on a warm knit jumper and pairing with some ankle boots, this particular style can be transformed into an Autumn-ready ensemble in seconds.

I always try to invest in pieces that are both timeless and versatile, and this beautiful floral-printed maxi dress from Zara ticks all the right boxes: price, style, fit and versatility. I’ve worn it recently for a stroll around the stunning gardens at Sopwell House.

Perfect for Summer, this dress can be styled with simple tan sandals and a straw bag, or dress up with heeled wedges and fringed earrings for a date night look. Keep the accessories to a minimum and let the dress do all the talking – I opted for a dainty gold-plated pendant necklace from Jon Richard.
