The sun is shining, the weather is warm, and we’re on the look out for clothes that will start our summer with a statement! Enter French Connection, which is pulling out all the stops with its Spring/Summer 2015 Collection. Packed full of bold colours, modern materials and striking prints, there are definitely some must-have pieces in this collection which will become part of your go-to summer outfits. We stopped by their store at Silvercord to check out the latest looks to hit the rails… let’s see if you can spot any of your summer staples below!
The first thing that struck me was this eye-catching orange print. If you’re a leopard lover then you’ll be all over this unique look, which is used in a number of pieces to give a fun, flirty feel.
Throw on this leopard jumpsuit with a pair of big black sunnies for a instantly impressionable outfit. This goes to show that easy to wear and comfortable clothing (perfect for the Hong Kong heat) doesn’t have to be boring!
Keeping it light and bright for the warmer climes is this amazing white dress. The sporty, almost scuba-like material gives it a wonderful, structured shape that’s easy to move in and creates romantic waves in the skirt.
The bright green lining of this cute dress gives it a subtle little pop of colour, perfect for the office on a warm day with a pair of practical yet sophisticated heels – how do the ones above fit for size? The white and black will go with almost any outfit and the heel is the perfect size. The ideal Sunday brunch look!
Speaking of shoes, how cute are these more casual black and white lata leather rope wedges?! The rope-trim detail and the cross over front give an almost nautical feel, and I love the cork wedge which makes pounding the pavements in HK that much easier!
Worried about wrecking your whites? Go back to black with this super cool ‘Dreams Are Free’ t-shirt style dress! The neon-sign inspired quote on the front is so modern, and it’s in our favourite Sassy colour (pink of course!). This structured dress is perfect for popping on with a pair of black flats or trainers for an urban look, and we love the unique luxe yet sporty material.
Looking for an outfit to take you from day to night? It’s all in the details! I’m a big fan of the bejewelled, punky necklace detailing on this deep blue dress, which adds a rock ‘n’ roll contrast to the look.
If you’re looking for a real party number, then feast your eyes on this sequin-sleeved delight. You’re sure to dance the night away in style at those summer soirees wearing it!
Another option for those summer nights is this silver and white sequin dress, which is sure to sparkle at any beach or pool parties you may have lined up. Talk about eye-catching…
Strap on these metallic heels for even more glamour to finish off your party outfit. The sling back makes them comfortable and summer appropriate, and the silver will match any shade that you choose to don on top.
And of course, French Connection doesn’t miss out on the accessories front. With these colourful additions, you can lift even the plainest of outfits and turn it into a fresh summer look! I’m obsessed with this printed floral scarf, which goes perfectly with these green suede flats, this quirky woven purse and this trilby hat (handy for keeping your face out of the UV rays!).
So there you have it – a collection full of contrasts and colour that’s sure to keep your wardrobe stocked for the coming summer months. Whether it’s casual, cool outfits that you can wear day to day, or one-of-a-kind dresses to dazzle in at summer soirees, you’re sure to find something to blend into your wardrobe! This collection manages to pack a punch whilst still being so easy to wear, ideal in the Hong Kong heat. From leopard print staples to sequin frocks to woven accessories, there’s a range of must-haves this season that will see you through to autumn.
