21 New-In Summer Pieces I've Completely Fallen in Love With

·3-min read

When the weather begins to warm up and summer hits (here’s hoping we get one as sunny as last year), our wardrobes tend to require a shift towards easy, breezy pieces that keep us feeling cool and looking effortless. That obviously includes pretty dresses that you can throw on (and depend on) for all occasions and usually some simple separates in brights and neutrals that are easy to mix and match.

As we’ve been browsing the new collections, one brand's summer offering, in particular, has stood out, and that’s French Connection's. The high street brand has long been known for its premium take on wardrobe essentials, as well as standout special pieces to love year after year. Luckily for us this season, it is as reliable as ever.

There are plenty of delicate florals and cute ginghams (the classic pattern continues to be a huge trend this year), chic linens in fresh pastel shades, and, of course, those wardrobe staples that underpin many a great look, like striped tees and white jeans. Whether you’re set for a season of alfresco dining, garden parties, staycations, or all of the above, there’s guaranteed to be something here for you to add to your wish list.

It seems it’s not just us that has fallen for the new French Connection drop either. We’ve recently spotted plenty of stylish influencers sporting the brand’s new pieces, which is always helpful to inspire future outfit planning. If you keep scrolling, you’ll see just how they’re wearing their favourite styles, and then you can shop the new collection below.
