French Connection AW14

New collection alert! Over 250 brand spanking new lines have just landed in store and online, and we couldn’t be more excited. With the heatwave well and truly out of the way (though one more really wouldn’t hurt) we’re ready to start pulling together our new season wardrobes, grabbing the first base layers to transition us into autumn with ease. I know, we’re too organised!

You may still be thinking about new bikinis and festival wear for that upcoming trip to Croatia but we’ve got our sights firmly set on new-season pieces we can wear right now and later. Whether it’s sweating it out in the city and still looking as chic as ever, blotting paper a must, or sippin’ on cocktails in a beach bar in Ibiza, we’ve picked out the perfect capsule wardrobe staples to buy now, wear right throughout the rest of this season and the next!

The Throw-On-And-Go LBD

Milly Mesh Jersey Dres

This simple shift dress is the answer to all your summer in the city dilemmas. It may be black with long sleeves but flash your pins and throw on a sandal and you’ll be ready for meetings, brunch dates, long office days and after-hours revelry whilst still looking smart, slick and complete.

The Slouchy Palazzos

Are these the new trouser shape of the season? We think so! Smart yet still sporty and super slouchy, these crepe trousers will look too cool when teamed with a baggy tee and slides. The muted grey pair are our favourite, and we’ll be saving them for a pair of towering heels come fashion week.

The Smart Tee

Romonov Posey Crepe Top

The shape of this pretty crepe top is what really won us over. Dropped shoulders with elbow-length sleeves and a pretty pleated neckline, the boxy cut body and subdued floral print makes it an easy go-to piece when you want to dress up jeans. No necklace necessary, we say layer up on bracelets and rings to keep this top on the right side of girly. Wear now with boyfriend jeans and stilettos and skinny’s and boots come winter.

Handbags and Heels 

Handbags and heels

This shimmer clutch teamed with any of the above will add instant glam to your look, but in a super stylish way, obviously. These sude pointed wedges have got the office in a bit of a tizzy too and who can do without a pair of leather stappy heels to toughen up skirts and tailored trousers. We’ll take them all, thanks.
