Dress of the Day: Divine bodice dress by Acquascutum

Acquascutum_dress Once again, it’s the colour more than anything else that drew us to this bright green dress by Acquascutum, although the fitted bodice has lots of appeal, too.

We think this is the kind of dress that could adapt to lots of different occasions, and the colour is always going to make it that little bot more interesting than basic black. Is it interesting enough to make us want to pay £795 for it? Er, that would be a “no”. A firm one. If you do, though, you can get it at Net-a-Porter.

Just send us a link to the dress of your dreams along with a short note telling us what it is you like about it. We’ll do the rest!

    Reminds me of something that January Jones would wear in “Mad Men.” Love it! Could I pull it off? Not so much…

    If I had the money, I’d be all over it. What a beautiful colour.

    I like it, but I’m confused…is it a trick of the light or is one side of the bodice shirred and the other side not shirred below the bustline??

    do you think you could find a range of glorious green dresses for your readers?!
    there are so many bad ones out there and very very few affordably lovely ones

    I’m also not sure of the colour, but the cut and style of the dress is very cute 🙂
