Blooming Fabulous

Here at Guinea we have been inspired by the glorious Chelsea Flower Show and we've been thinking about all things floral; from summer dresses to stylish tops, whatever the occasion, we have the go-to garment for you. Whether it is that last minute invite to drinks, a garden party, or a much-anticipated event, such as a birthday, wedding or Christening, every woman wants something versatile, which will take her from a spectacular day to celebratory evening.


The first of our florals is the flattering and feminine Lucy dress. A riot of pink and red tones, this silk dress is a classic design, with a modest V-neck and knee length cut, the Lucy dress can easily be dressed up or down to suit the occasion. The mother of pearl buttons add a discreet flash of glamour and the elasticated cuffed sleeves, with matching ruched waist panel at the back to give the perfect fit, means you never have to compromise comfort over style.


Our Lucy dress also comes in a stylised peacock print. Same design, different vibe. This Lucy is 100% sustainable, as it is made from a beautifully soft viscose, which is a sustainable fabric made from vegetable fibres. Here at Guinea we are not about fast fashion, we are about quality, which will give you satisfaction for years to come. Good for you and good for the planet.


If the Lucy isn’t the style for you, maybe you should consider Phoebe. Guinea’s Phoebe dress is a striking and impactful dress. These sumptuous colours remind us of the dramatic yet delicate Iris flower. This dress is elongating and has a soft, feminine and floaty silhouette. Easily accessorised, the Phoebe dress has been designed to give you the perfect fit every time.


Now, you may already have your favourite hip skimming skirt, or reliable waist flattering trousers, but if you are in need of a new statement top to complete your outfit, then the Emily silk blouse may be the wardrobe staple you are lacking. Our signature Emily silk blouse comes in a variety of colours and designs. From bright, fun florals, to our classic, cream blouse, this super feminine blouse has a loose, relaxed fit with soft gathered frills, which makes it is so easy to wear, and however you choose to style it, it will work perfectly in your wardrobe all year round.

But wait... There's More...

Unfortunately, our British weather cannot always be relied upon to be glorious sunshine, so just in case, here are a couple of our outwear pieces, which will stop a rain shower, or a cool breeze from ruining your day.


Our Alice Cardigan, can be easily slipped on over a dress or draped casually over the shoulders if needed.

Statement piece against those annoying little showers:

We pride ourselves on our velvet coats, but which do we recommend? Well, whichever compliments your outfit the best, of course! With colours ranging from pastels and jewel tones, to deeper, darker shades for dramatic evening effect, we are certain you will turn heads and attract lots of compliments with a cut and style which works for you. Here are just a couple of examples, but please, click the link to our to find our full range.

Whatever the weather, whatever the occasion, you can be certain that dresed in  Guinea you will feel fabulous and super glam.
