WITH summer right around the corner it's time to find the perfect dress.

Maxi dresses never go out of style and Narelle Perrett, owner of Rellz Clothing and Giftlines, is making sure the latest styles are on offer.

Narelle said getting the right dress for summer is all about being comfortable and having items that you accessorise with.

But it's not just about looking good; she wants her clientele to feel good when they're wearing the latest fashions.

The Gracemere store focuses on the Go Girl and Bodacious clothing ranges which promote a responsible and healthy body image, and believe that women should not have to compromise fashion because of their age, size and shape.

"I want my ladies to feel up to date, and they want to be trendy," Narelle said.

"And the clothes complement your figure."

A style like the V-neck Aztec print kaftan can be worn on its own or teamed with tights. It's a style that can even be thrown over your swimmers when you're at the beach.

A look with a floral pattern, like the frill hem dress, has a print that is ready for summer.

"A lot of my clients like these patterns because they're fresh," Narelle said.

The shop owner suggested adding a denim jacket to the look for spring.

"Any of the maxi dresses can easily be teamed with heels to dress up the look and accessorise with jewellery," Narelle said.

"All the clothes are cool and easy to wear for the Rockhampton climate."
