French Connection LimitedFCUK’s spring 2009 trend forecast is
Spring has a rustic start with relaxed silhouettes given natural embellishment in muted safari tones. Chino trousers are worn loose and low with turned up hems, paired with panelled jersey or a cream belted blazer. This season longer length skirts make a return; southern belles wear theirs just below the knee with an embroidered smock. Sleeveless shift and shirt dresses are given a swing with an a-line cut in neutral khaki tones or playful paisley print, embellishment is delicate in peacock green and blue.
