How to Wear the Ruffles Trend on a Budget: The Edit

The ruffles trend is all the rage on the runways and in your favourite high street shops too! Discover the best of the trend for Autumn 2016

The ruffles trend was featured prominently during New York Fashion Week. Ruffles and frills were already a key element of Spring/Summer 2016 so it seems that they are not going anywhere for Spring/Summer 2017 (and Autumn/Winter 2016).

Ruffles and frills bring to mind the Victorian era. And in those times, dressing up was synonymous with one’s status and wealth.

Due to the rise of the modern gothic look (Everyone remembers Marc Jacobs impeccable interpretation of dark romanticism for Fall Winter 2016), it’s not surprising designers and high street brands have embraced the trend.

From frilly shirts to layered dresses, ruffles make your style instantly more dramatic.

Embark on a ride of cheap frills (see what we did there?) and discover the ruffles trend on a budget.
