Channel East Coast look with new watch

First published: 12-04-2010

Shoppers wanting a new French Connection watch this season should opt for a smart but preppy one, as the look is back in fashion, according to Susie Mesure.

The style expert who writes for the Independent said that the East Coast look is back, seeing ladies stepping out in ripped jeans, heels and a waistcoat.

Those wanting to follow the trend need to get boating shoes, chinos and pinstripes, while ladies should look to the likes of Blair Waldorf and Alexa Chung for inspiration.

People can get the look more subtly by getting a new French Connection watch for the season, pairing it with a cashmere cardigan and chinos to complete the outfit.

LTD watches have also been recommended for this summer, by the Style Blog.

The commentary said that the brand''s recent pairing with boyband JLS and its colourful timepieces mean it produces must-have items.
