Frills and ruffles are one of spring/summer 2017’s most romantic trends, adding a hint of drama and frivolity to any wardrobe – but how do you style them?

The key with this trend is not to take it too seriously – frills add a touch of fun to your look, whether you choose to go big with a frilled collar or shoulder, or opt for a more subtle take on the trend, such as a ruffled skirt.

Personally I am, and have always been, a frill fan; give me a ruffle and a puff sleeve and I’m happy! And I’ve worked out how to slot the trend into your day-to-day wardrobe seamlessly.



The skirt

Find the perfect frilled skirt and it will take you easily from spring through to the summer holidays.

When wearing a voluminous shape like this, always team with a plain, neat-fitting top. Here, I’ve worn a poloneck for the chillier weather, but in the summer I’d pair this with a plain white tee or white tailored shirt.

A great way to add a splash of colour to a monochrome outfit like this is with brightly-coloured shoes and a matching bag.

I love this skirt because it ticks two big trends, frills and gingham, and will look just as great with a swimsuit and flip-flops on holiday as it does with black ankle boots and a sweater on a cold winter’s day.


The bright shirt

The frilled blouse is possibly the easiest way to dip your toe into the ruffles trend.

I love a collar or cuff with a frill; it’s adds a little interest to a simple shirt, and looks great teamed with boyfriend jeans and heels for a laidback outfit. Alternatively, for a night out, pair with a tailored jacket for a chic, stylish finish.


The printed top

Max out the frill trend by mixing your ruffles with animal print!

Although this look is full-on, pairing with dungarees, black jeans or trousers will give it an effortless feel.

Wear with minimal accessories, a fine gold necklace and plain black bag is all tha you need!

This is the trend to have fun with, and a great way to add a bit of sassiness to your wardrobe…
