We're not sure why this model looks so terribly miserable (after all, her colorist has nailed that perfect shade of auburn hair—what's there to be so icy and intimidating about?). But we've got more pressing things to consider, like deciding which of the black-and-white fashion moments crowding French Connection's sale section will be coming home with us. Make up your own mind with our top five contenders, below.
The Steal: Feather Ruth Dress
Why We Love It: It's that perfect specimen of LBD that functions as a blank formality canvas—add glitzy accessories and heels for cocktail attire, or ballet flats for a casual gamine moment.
The Damage: $149.99 (Previously $168)
The Steal: Texture Checked Peg Trousers
Why We Love Them: We're not even close to getting tired of this pajama pant cut, and the suiting print means we can definitely get away with wearing these to work.
The Damage: $99.99 (Previously $128)
The Steal: Horse Lace Tunic Dress
Why We Love It: The unexpectedly luxe-looking stallion horse pattern, which has a faint Gucci resemblance.
The Damage: $189.99 (Previously $228)
The Steal: Textured Check Sweatshirt
Why We Love It: As we've already mentioned, we're suckers for cozy silhouettes with formal finishes, and this cotton sweatshirt with raglan sleeves is just the latest example.
The Damage: $79.99 (Previously $98)
The Steal: Water Flower Draped Dress
Why We Love It: The painterly motif makes this floral frock less sweet, more sophisticated.
The Damage: $149.99 (Previously $178)
