If you’ve picked up a fashion magazine in the last couple of weeks you will probably have noticed a beautiful delicate floral kaftan style dress on a stuning model riding a horse. The colourway seen in the advert doesn’t appear to be on the site as yet but there is a brighter version seen below that sold out within days on the French Connection website (we’re really hoping they get some more in shortly as this is the perfect holiday dress) so if there’s anything you love in the new collection snap it up quickly to avoid disappointment.

chunky knit snoodsThe must-have fashion accessory this season is the snood. Incorporating warmth, versatility and style, Girls Wishlist have ditched the trusty scarf and replaced it with the snood which has become less of an accessory and more of a permanent fixture around our neck’s since the Autumn chill first made an appearance. They are super trendy, warmer, more comfortable and less hassle than a scarf and take up less handbag space should you ever want to remove.

Here is our snood guide 2011 to help you with the transition from scarf to snood.
