1. Brand Alert: French Connection

    If you’re looking to stock her wardrobe with some cute and summery dresses, you need to browse our selection of French Connection!

    Founded in 1972, French Connection has always stood for ready-to-wear fashion sensibility, unique prints, European accents, and flattering cuts. Their kids collection hews closely to these original ideals. Theirs is a truly designer look, but bear in mind most of these dresses are under $30 (not the case with grown-up sizes of French Connection, sadly).  

    Below are some of our favorites. Look closely for the winning details throughout. 

    The first thing that catches the eye about this dress is the cute print – we think it looks like bubbles popping. Less apparent but equally adorable is the asymmetrical scoop accent at the hip.

    As this dress shows, a classic cut can really benefit from some striking contrast coloring. Put on a pair of sneakers or sandals and – voila! – a complete summer look. 

    Every girl needs a striped sundress, and this one delivers!

    A dress like this is all goes well with simple accessories. An understated purse or a solid pair of sneakers lets the dress do the heavy lifting.
