Style in the city: maxi dresses for exploring the Baltic capitals

The Baltics are finally shrugging off the shackles of winter and preparing for summer. It’s been a long and cold winter this year and as such tourism has been affected to the major cities of Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius. These both past and future European Capitals of Culture along with UNESCO listed sites, thriving modern urban centres and fantastic culinary scenes will once again be holiday hot spots. Thanks to low-cost flights, favourable exchange rates with the British Pound and affordable hotels, these Baltic capitals are very much on the holiday hit list for Britons.

These modern, cosmopolitan cities are stylish and chic and fashion is taken seriously. A weekend break to Tallinn, Riga or Vilnius does not call for a pair of sensible shoes, a rain jacket and sporty looking shorts. As these cities are filled with glamorous, beautiful women you’ll want to fit in. At the same time, you are going to be wandering around a city, possible for long hours under surprisingly warm temperatures – temperatures have been known to top 30°C – so you’ll want something light and comfortable, but chic and trendy. All hail the maxi dress.

The long, flowing length helps you stay cool, but keeps your skin covered from the sun. These dresses are stylish and on-trend this season, but cover a multitude of sins if you tuck into too many cakes and pastries. Next has a wide selection of maxi dresses, from casual and beachwear right through to evening style maxi dresses. Here are our top picks.

Strappy Jersey Maxi Dress

This ankle-grazing light green maxi hangs perfectly, skimming over hips and thighs with minimal fuss. The ruched waist and simple shoulder straps give a casual, daytime look, but the figure hugging form and calf split mean it can bridge from daytime to evening. Depending on the length, this dress is £26 or £30, so a real bargain. This is the perfect sightseeing dress.















Religion Romance Bird Print Maxi Dress

This romantic, feminine dress is stunning. The all over bird print is actually rather subtle thanks to the clever choice of greys. It has a fitted bust, but a flowing, loose-fitting skirt. This is a maxi dress made to glide around town. It’s the perfect choice for a shopping trip or a luxury lunch.
















Tropical Pleat Maxi Dress

Make a style statement with this colourful, printed maxi. The all-over tropical print is on-trend, whilst the light fabric and folded, plunging neckline is sexy and sensual. This is a maxi made for getting noticed. Add heels and some gold jewellery for the ultimate summer evening occasion dress. Celebrities love bold, printed maxi dresses too. Check out Kate Hudson, Kristen Bell and Carrie Underwood on Beauty and the Dirt.
