While the end of summer may force you to put the short shorts and sunscreen away, it also signals the pumpkin-and-apple-cider filled transition to fall. More importantly, in the fashion world, September means it's time to break out fall clothing.
One collection that will update any fall wardrobe is French Connection. Their women's fall styles stay true to sophisticated classics while incorporating a contemporary twist, paying homage to (arguably) the best clothing season by highlighting autumnal tones with color pops of orange and turquoise.
The menswear collection includes hints of military influences and traditional country sporting attire with an artistic edge. Details such as elbow patches, football buttons and hunting pockets add subtle elements of style that will update a tired wardrobe.
French connection wants you to look and feel your best without emptying your bank account, so check back tomorrow for a special announcement.
Until then, shop the fall collection here. >>
