French Connection have done a good job of moving away from the FCUK t-shirts that were last edgy when I was doing GCSEs (a long time ago!). Take this dress, for instance (£45): casual, individual and unbelievably summery. This dress is so summery I could wear it out to a bird sanctuary and mess up their internal body clocks. It's comfy enough to wear all the time and therefore be a 'favourite summer dress' contender, yet could be easily smartened up thanks to the black edging. The wooden rings on the straps add a unique touch.
