Ruffles and Frills – Romantic Fashion

One of the key trends for Spring/Summer 2017 is the frill/ruffle effect. This actually first appeared in Autumn/Winter, when boxy sweatshirts were given sweetly pretty frills across the front and sleeves that changed the look from boyish to girlie in an instant. This season, the frill effect is everywhere, from tops and sweaters, to jackets with bell shaped sleeves and dresses of all variety.

But before you look away, thinking that frills and ruffles are not for you, and that this must mean every colour as long as it is pink. Think again. This season it seems that anything goes when it comes to frills and colour, with a range of prints and bloc colour options out there. A key case in point is the metallic t-shirt from M&S which would work so well with a leather biker jacket for a look that is almost androgynous – perfect to dip into the trend if you want to avoid looking too girly.

The frill trend is, in fact, very versatile. The Wallis dotted dress would be gorgeous at a wedding, whilst the t-shirt style dresses just need Stan Smiths and a denim jacket to make them perfect everyday wear.  Pretty blouses are a simple way to add a ruffle to a look, whilst the Self Portrait jumpsuit is a total showstopper – just add red lips and nails and you will dazzle any room.
