Pick of the Day: French Connection beaded dress
Summery but substantial this French Connection dress (£150) will easily take you from the office to your Friday night out no problem. The pale colour is a great nod to the nude/fleshtone look and the embellishments are bang on trend.
It's a simple shift shape but the embellishment adds enough interest to make it work for the evening. A velvety black pair of tights will work just fine, but for something a bit special try a sheer black polka dotted pair. The length means you can also pair it with a pair of 7/8ths trousers, pumps and a beat-up denim jacket for a more rough and ready take on gallic chic.
