From Sketch to Store and Straight on the Winter Wishlist

This season the womenswear range combines the idea of vintage aristocratic country life with chunky knits and soft tailoring pieces, merging them with the sleek modern city life. Bringing a collection of understated Parisian chic and timeless pieces.

Here is my style edit for the top 10 pieces on my French Connection winter wishlist ♥

From Sketch to Store and Straight on the Winter Wishlist

I love the monochrome colour palette which is lifted by dusky coral and blue hues. The checked bunny coat is the perfect statment piece, with a touch of soft punk as seen by Chanel, Givenchy and Saint Laurent the silhouette calls 60s monochrome. Covering a third trend of the oversized coat, this piece has to be a must-have for this season. Renowed for timesless prints, French Connection has not disappointed us this season, the first being the water flower print on a beautiful soft to touch fabric. I love this easy and classic vest top perfect for a dinner date teamed with skinny jeans and perfect Maresella suede platform ankle boots. Another great print this season is the vine bloom ornate floral design, the relaxed fit of the blazer means it can work well in the day but still add elegant glamour for an evening look. I love horses but I’m generally not a graphic print girl, I love this hatched horses tunic dress, with a unique hand-drawn horse print. It’s an easy piece and can be worn with tights when it’s get chilli or bare legs with killer heels for a evening look.

Accessories are key for any season and French Connection has always been good with their offer, I love this leather chain belt, giving that Versace punk edge to an outfit with simplicity. This beautiful shoulder bag gives a modern touch on a classic shape, I love it’s slim look without being too bulky. With the punk look as a huge trend this season, leather leggings are an absolute must. These megan leather biker leggings are easy to wear and work well with an oversized jumper or contrasting silk top. To pair up with my skinny jeans I love the slub speckled jumper in the monochrome colourway, it is the perfect cosy knit to keep warm in the cold winter months. With three trends in one style, my final FC favourite has to be the glorious wool coat, it’s candy coloured as seen by Emilio Pucci and Luis Vuitton, it’s over-sized bring masculine femininity to your wardrobe and lastly it is a coat which are huge this forthcoming winter season.
