Shopping for easy-breezy floaty dresses with Aquascutum

Aquascutum summer dresses

The sun is becoming a more permanent feature in our sky, the gentle breeze is getting warmer, and the evenings are getting longer. The British summer has finally arrived, and it’s making us want to wear floaty dresses all day long. We’ve fallen in love with the feminine cuts and lightweight fabrics of Aquascutum’s beautiful dresses, and as a result will be taking every opportunity to wear them this summer.

The pleat detailing of this Forbes dress is preciously delicate, and adds to the already elegant silhouette as it blows back in the wind. This is a softer take on the power colour of the season, and the collar and mid-length skirt give it a distinctly traditionally feminine feel. Gracefully draping a light trench coat over your shoulder will complete the look as you stroll through the park, dappled sunlight peeping through the trees. (Plus, it’ll ensure you’re prepared for the ever-changing British weather!)

Meeting the girls for afternoon tea is a wonderfully refined way to satisfy your coffee addiction this summer. Muted pastels, cute bows and a sunny smile will brighten up any tearoom! Breeze in wearing this belted check dress, letting a silk scarf fall over your shoulders. A fabulous pair of sunnies will add mysterious allure as you make your entrance.

Aquascutum Spring/Summer 2014


To work the easy-breezy look in the big city, stick to sumptuous silky fabrics but opt for a bolder print and a brighter lip. This floral print dress has a dropped rear hem, giving it a romantic feel, whilst the smart monochrome print makes it office-appropriate. Keep a clutch inside your oversized black tote to easily transition from day to night!


The British summer is famous for not lasting long, so make the most of dressing for the warmer weather while you can!
