SS17 TREND FOCUS : RUFFLES

THE TREND

Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Loewe, Rodarte 

This is a trend that’s been around in several different guises for the last few seasons. However, for SS17 it’s a looser, bigger and more feminine ruffle, that is as daring as it is girly. At Chloe it was light and bright in a tulle, as at Rodarte and Loewe. It’s perfect for summer dressing and makes the trend more wearable and less statement. However for the bolder girl, McQueen stuck to the big cascading ruffles of last season but with a floral update.

HOW I’M WEARING IT

White Dress £65 Topshop,  Red Dress £70 Asos, Ruffle Top £15 Topshop, Ruffle Dress £85 True Violet, Pink Frill Sleeve Jumper £20.64 SheIn

These are a few items on my wishlist that I feel encapsulate the trend really well. Wedding season is nearly here and these feminine dresses (minus the white obviously) would be a perfect look with some strappy heels. I also like the idea of wearing them with flats or trainers in the day. The top and jumper are just easy trend injections that you can work into your wardrobe for the coming season too.

Hello Winter

stylerarebit.com It’s here! Toffee nut lattes, frost outside and a mere 7 weeks till Christmas, how could you not love winter? I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone also and how long it’s been since I last did an outfit post! I’ve picked up a few nice pieces recently like this coat in the M&S sale, the grey Topshop tee and this beautiful vintage bag from Penny Lane Vintage. Winter dressing is my favourite and I can’t wait to set my credit card on fire with a few warmer pieces, especially some chunky knit jumpers and coats.

Embroidery : The High Street Edit

This is the biggest trend of the season and its emblazoned on pretty much everything. The heavy floral embroidery has trickled down from the catwalk and is the easiest way to bring your wardrobe up to date. In light of this I’ve picked a few affordable pieces from the high street to get you inspired.

into the woods

With the weather being beyond freezing, I have found that I literally cannot brave the outside anymore without a nice chunky jumper. This is my new favourite, it was a sale purchase just after Christmas and I’ve barely taken it off since I bought it! I’ve also posted, yet again, a monochrome outfit, I’m still working on getting into colour but just one small step at time (would a coloured earring count?). Plus, this is my first outfit post of 2015! So I hope you like it and here’s to many more to come.
