French Connection spring 2009 kidswear
May '09
French Connection kidswear epitomizes summer's laid back cool - overly complicated style takes a back seat as washed out sweats, easy jersey and loose fit pieces run the show.

Floaty tops and dresses are all a girl needs to get her through this summer, and with a monochrome palette providing such a strong foundation it only takes a bold print or small burst of colour to liven up any outfit. Denim jackets and skirts look scorching hot teamed with a flame red top, while relaxed fit jeans come over cute as a button when topped off with a black and white heart print knit.

It's ahoy there sailorette and a very pretty polly indeed with strong nautical colours and detail features. From wide leg white cropped trousers, to stylish navy and white stripe pieces, or plain jersey tops with small striped bibs, classic interchangeable pieces give a sea-sonal feel to your summer look. A beautiful navy and white ric rac dress gives a nod to the trend and is the only party dress you'll need to keep you cooler than an ocean breeze.

Summer dresses are super sweet in candy colour stripes, and block colour cottons. Bows, buttons, and belts add girly detail to simple shift dresses. Vintage style floral or art deco jigsaw prints give a considered quality design feel to summer styles, meaning you can let your clothes make the effort without you having too - the perfect recipe for extra playtime this summer.

Cheeky chappies are kept happy in sporty summer threads with washed out basics and preppy pieces in neutral tones making the transition in to summer an effortless one. Shirts are summer essentials - whether they're crisp white with short sleeves and breast pockets, long sleeve checked shirts with rolled up sleeves under a fine knit sleeveless cardigan, or simple linen with pastel checks - flick your collar up and team with love-worn denim to inject some seriously style savvy attitude in to your look.

A button front tee in distressed jersey, with raw edges on sleeves and hems, is perfect paired with a pair of grey and white thin stripe long shorts. To stand out from the crowd, add a pair of fluoro socks to keep one step ahead of the fashion crowd.

When the temperature rises, the crowds go wild and it's "On your marks, get set, go" in Grand Prix inspired sportswear. Grey marl jersey and denim is offset by vivid primary colours - from blue and red chequerboard flag jumpers, to yellow Team FC fabric badges sewn on tops that would make any champion racing driver proud. With all that action, make sure you wear a loose fit trouser for maximum movement - jeans are dark and lived-in, while chocolate brown combats are a cool casual alternative for that skater boy look.
