Thought that ruffles and frills were for childhood birthday parties? Well, for spring/summer 2016 they’re back, decorating collars, hemlines and forming all-over cascading tiers, providing us with fashion’s most romantic trend.
This time round, they’ve been given an elegant makeover and more wearable than ever. Sure, ruffles still imbue a feminine charm, but they also add a sense of drama that makes for a perfect evening look.
To avoid looking too sugary, opt for a structured or exaggerated flounce and work with a pair of tailored trousers. Those only dipping into the trend should consider a yoke blouse or ruffle trim shirt, which look great teamed with a pair of boyfriend jeans. Or tuck a frilled shirt into a thigh-baring pencil skirt for a grown-up look.
Accessories are key in this – grunge up a pretty lace ruffle dress with a pair of opaque tights and Converse, very Saint Laurent.
