I have had this dress for so long, I was kindly gifted this dress from Evans around March for my birthday and even though I think you could easily dress this for winter I just never got round to wearing it. I think it's now my new favorite maxi dress. In the summer I don't think you can go wrong with a maxi, they are mostly cotton and really cooling for a warm summers day. Black is back in my good books so adds a bit of edge more so than a floral dress. Apologies for the dust on my dress my drive is full of the stuff!
