The Frill Of The Chase: The Best Ruffle Pieces To Buy Now

Ruffles or frills; big or small; clean cut or disarray - ruffles are here to shake up your wardrobe. This summer think floating lines that look like clouds and dreamy fabric for miles. Think ruffles on jumpers, frills on pants and dresses with va-va-voom.

For ultimate street style chic, ruffles are the way to go and we’ve compiled ten of the best pieces, both from the catwalk and the high street so you can be as frill-volous as you like.

Ruffled Sleeves

Flared, long, frilled - exaggerated sleeves are everywhere you look, and it's a trend we're loving this season. A ruffle detail has the ability to turn the most basic of pieces into something special - you can add a ruffle detail to the sleeve of the most basic white t-shirt and the effect will be romantic and eye-catching. You can also experiment more wildly with layering (another trend of the moment) jumpers over shirts with exaggerated sleeves for a more dynamic look that is also incredibly office-appropriate. Tres chic!

Ruffled Shirt

Ruffled shirts are everywhere you look right now. A hybrid between a structured shirt and a peasant blouse, the ruffled shirt is a fun departure from wooly winter-dressing into the spring season.

Getting a cardigan or blouse with ruffles surrounding the neckline is the perfect way to draw attention to, and frame, your face. Adjust the look with a delicate necklace to bring out your collar bones and voila.

Ruffled Trousers

Having ruffles at the foot of your trousers is an easy way to minimize the look of your waist. By drawing attention to your ankles your waist instantly looks smaller giving you the all desired hourglass figure. Bell bottom trousers are everywhere this season, but we award Zara with the prize for the best collection.
