Women’s Dress Ideas for the Social Season

From weddings to Wimbledon and Royal Ascot to the Chelsea Flower Show, the social season is about to start, so what better way to start than with an Artigiano dress. And that’s not just at the smarter end of the spectrum, from our famous figure-flattering wrap styles to travel-perfect picks like our elegant maxi dress and easy linen tunic dress, we have a dress for every occasion. And as our customers will happily tell you, our dresses are one of the things we do best…

Turquoise Italian Tunic Dress

New Shape

Chic and easy style inspired by the sunshine, yachts and turquoise waters of the Italian Riviera. With the lightweight and natural breathability of linen but even softer thanks to its ‘washed’ finish, our Italian tunic dress has a straight through skirt styling with delicate front pintucks. Your perfect easygoing choice for holidays and ideal over jeans back in blighty.

Navy Italian Stretch Jersey Dress


This new incarnation of our famous wrap dress takes our constant quest for perfection a step closer. Fitted at the bodice, flippy in the skirt and with side ties to highlight your waist, our mock wrap dress is even more of a figure-flattering marvel. Take your pick from joyfully printed or perfectly plain Italian stretch jersey and include it in all your plans for the season.

White-on-Navy Striped Pure Linen Dress


Embrace the summery side of chic with this beautiful pure linen dress in fresh white-on-navy stripes. Chic, playful and easygoing, our pure linen dress uses contrast stripes to very flattering effect. Just swap espadrilles for block-heel sandals and a jacket to take it from any day to occasions.

Italian-Made Floral Print Dress

Placement Print

This season’s lavish, large-scale flowers and vibrant hues in a beautiful waist-defining cut.
Possibilities in print become more sophisticated each season. A stunning case in point, our Italian-made dress has its glorious flowers strategically placed within the cut of the garment for maximum impact and flattering effect.

Yellow Italian Jersey Dress


An Artigiano signature style, this fit-and-flare silhouette is refreshed for summer in delectable shades of our favourite Italian jersey. It’s one of the designs that put Artigiano on the map and there’s no more flattering shape for any figure than this fit-and-flare style. Fashioned in fluid Italian jersey, it wears, washes and packs like a dream, so be sure to include at least one in your holiday plans.
