Call it wishful thinking, but we're already dreaming about the contents of our summer wardrobe and the outfits we'll be donning in warmer weather. And it seems as if French Connection has read our minds, because their SS19 High Summer collection is full of slick styles and colour pop pieces that we're already desperate to wear. See which looks we're crushing on, and discover how to shape your spring/summer wardrobe, below...

Look 1: Contemporary Crochet

The must-have textile of high summer, crochet is making a comeback in the form of delicately-crafted floral designs. This French Connection number can be paired with heels for a formal spring/summer event (think champagne-sipping BBQs or open-air parties). Or dress it down with sandals for an effortlessly chic look.

Look 2: Bell Sleeves Are Go

This summer, nod to the '70s in a bell sleeve top - but remember, the updated way to rock this vintage style is with modern mid-length sleeves. For an easy win, try this button-down playsuit from French Connection on for size. Pair with slip-on trainers for ultimate cool-girl appeal.

Look 3: Layer It Up

Layering isn't only reserved for winter: in fact, high summer is the perfect time to show off your styling skills. But if you need a helping hand, start with a plain white tee, and layer this checked French Connection maxi dress over the top. Another way to nail the trend is to layer with colour: marry white, sunshine yellow, lavenders and blues together for a dreamy summer look.

Look 4: Summer Bloom

Often trends will come and go, but floral is one that will always stay. For holiday dressing, city summer days and beyond, a floral-printed maxi dress will have you covered. Plus, opting for a dress that has a white base - like this number from French Connection - will work to accentuate your summer glow.
