Maternity maxi dresses for Spring/Summer 2013

Despite the icy weather making us think its our winter wardrobes that should be updated, Spring/Summer 2013 style is truly here, waiting patiently in the wings for the warmer sun to show its face.

And nothing says summer and lets you show off your  bump more than a maxi dress.

The maternity and mainstream shelves are full of these long frocks in a range of patterns to channel this season's trend.

Choose from fun florals for a simple daytime look, go for bold geometric monochrome prints to make a stand or take a simple black frock and jazz it up with accessories for that night out with the girls.

See the gallery below for just a few available on the maternity scene.

Maternity V Back Maxi Dress £18, Topshop

Alice maxi dress, £110, Rock A Bye Rosie

Stripe maxi dress, £35 Asos

Although this is technically not a maternity dress, we think the rouched waist is great for showing off that bump. River Island, £40

Yolanda Maxi dress, £249, Blossom Mother and Child

Maternity floral fashion for Spring/Summer 2013 and get Kate Middleton's floral frock look

Holly Fulton Spring/Summer 2013
Florals have once again regained their spot in Spring/Summer's must-have lists.

This season the trend sprouted up on the catwalks of Prada, Holly Fulton and Moschino to name a few, channelling both the sixties hippy era as well in a bolder sense with big prints and pop up florals sewn onto tops, skirts and scarves.

And it seems Kate Middleton has been quick to incorporate this trend into her maternity wardrobe. Last week she was spotted scooping up a delicate print floral frock from UK brand Lovestruck.

Although the £37 Deirdre frock wasn't actually labelled as "maternity" the elasticated waist makes it a perfect for that growing bump.

We've picked our fave five floral frocks for this season, including Kate's bargain lovely. See the gallery below for all the fashion.
