* The best pieces to buy from French Connection this summer
* French Connection has evolved since the infamous “FCUK” tees of the 90s
* High-quality (and affordable) dresses, tees, pants and more
French Connection just released their spring/summer 2018 collection, and we think it’s a homerun.
The company is known for their infamous FCUK logo tees that started controversy (and built the brand) back in the 90s, but since then, French Connection has evolved. Now, they offer a wide range of trendy, high-quality clothing with affordable price tags.
Check out ten of our favorite pieces from their latest collection below.
1. Paix T-Shirt
Summer pieces have to make a statement on their own – no layers to help out. This white Paix T-shirt does the job very well with a simple dove graphic and the “Paix” (French for peace) slogan on the front.
2. 5 Pocket Trousers
These trousers fit exactly how pants should in 2018 – slim, but slightly roomy – and look great in camel. They’ll be one of the most versatile pieces in your summer wardrobe, as you can pair them with oxfords and dress shoes just as easily as sneakers and tees.
3. Franju Floral Shirt
Hawaiian-inspired shirts are one of the best trends to try this summer. This one provides a great opportunity to do so with style because it’s affordable, but much more unique and high-quality than anything you’ll find at larger stores.
4. Acid Wash Crewneck Sweatshirt
A simple crewneck like this is a summer essential. It features a mid-weight, soft construction that’s ideal for brisk summer evenings or lazy days at home, and it comes in three trendy colors that elevate any outfit.
5. Oxford Check Harrington Jacket
This vintage-inspired oxford check jacket is a rare lightweight statement-maker for summer nights out or traveling. Plus, for a well-made, timeless jacket it’s surprisingly affordable at $118.
6. Missy Backpack
Classic backpacks will serve you well for a long time. This one features enough room for all your essentials, timeless styling, and a black colorway that makes it look great with any outfit (summer or winter).
7. Shikoku Spaced Wrap Dress
This flattering wrap dress will come in handy on hot days at the office or at home. The Japanese-inspired design makes a low-key statement anywhere, and the light fabric will keep you cool throughout the day.
8. Bleach Block High Rise Jeans
Fashionistas have gotten a little bored of regular denim, which has lead to the block jeans trend of late. We’re huge fans, because it’s an easy way to elevate even the most simple outfit (i.e. sneakers and a tank-top), without losing any comfort.
9. Elao Sweetheart Whisper Dress
The versatility of this Elao dress allows you to wear it as a spring transition or a summer go-to. Try it under a tee or light sweater this spring, and as a standalone piece with your favorite kicks this summer.
10. Slouchy Western Denim Jackets
Denim jackets have become an outerwear essential – regardless of the season. We highly recommend this one because it’s not the same jacket everyone has (*cough*Levi’s*cough*), and it has a unique slouchy fit that’s more comfortable during the warmer months.
