Ruffles got a chic makeover and I’m not shying away from the drama this trend is bound to create this season. SS16 fashion week saw many designers doing all sorts with it– from decorating hemlines to all-over garment tiering, it was pretty obvious that this feminine detail was coming back in full force.
I’ve always been taken by the fun and playful side of fashion, ruffles definitely tick that box, it’s elegant, girly and an easy way to add impact to simple staples.On to THIS jumper which has put French Connection back on my radar. How pretty is the ruffled detail? I told the story of how I met THIS jumper. I’m pleased I bought it when I did, considering it’s actually from last spring/summer collection and hard to find in my size anymore. It’s pretty similar to one I fell in love with from the Mother of Pearl jumper SS16 show, which also, is no anywhere to be found just yet…
For transitioning, here are some pretty cool frilly options here, here and here. For high summer, there are lots of pieces I would like to summon to my wardrobe with a magic wand, but I know that’s not going happening.
