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.

AW 15 | Quick Trend Breakdown

GRANNY CLASH CHIC

t1GUCCI, MARGIELA, MIU MIU, MARQUES’ ALMEIDA

This trend is the definition of eclectic, just layer every funky, loud item you own over the top of one another and your onto a winner.

GOTH GALS

T2GIVENCHY, ALEXANDER MCQUEEN, THOM BROWNE, YOHJI YAMAMOTO

Very simple, wear black from head to toe and do your makeup/hair like you don’t really care. Oh and of course, a miserable facial expression is the perfect accessory.

STILL 70S

T3LANVIN, CHLOE, ANNA SUI, BURBERRY PRORSUM

The 70s are still hanging around, particularly the boho trend. So keep hold of those flowing dresses and pair with a fur coat or suede jacket to nail the trend.

MOD

If you could hang your outfit on the tree at Christmas then you’ve got this one in the bag.

LOUD PRINTS

One for the brave, lots of loud, graphic prints. Wear from head to toe for full geometric sassiness.
