S/S 2016 Trends: Ruffles & Frills


Proven to have been hugely popular during spring, Ruffles & Frills are the perfect amount of romance to any outfit and one of this year's prettiest summer trends. Seen on the SS16 shows of Mary Katrantzou, Miu Miu, Givenchy and many other designers I love, not only were they hot on the catwalk romantic ruffles are too a hit with the A-list on and off the red carpet. Whether it's a casual frill or full-on frou frou, ruffles is a crucial trend this season and also one of the simplest to style. Keep on reading...


I love a bit of a feminine touch to an outfit, so I knew this FrilledNeckline See-Through Dotted Shirt* would be the perfect piece to try the style. Feminine ruffles give summer looks a touch of fancy and romance but for the sunny season, ruffles and frill have been given a sophisticated makeover and are more wearable than ever. If you are worried about looking too girly or resembling an 8 year old in a birthday party, pairing frills with a neutral palette, denim and tomboy footwear can offset the femininity and childishness whilst still being chic, mature and playful.

For those only dipping their toes into the trend, going for a simple blouse or ruffle trim shirt, which will both look great teamed with a pair of boyfriend jeans, will work just nicely. Similarly, tucking a frilled shirt into a pencil skirt or a pair of tailored trousers yield a more grown-up vibe if that's what you are looking for. Observe how I styled my frilled piece.


For my getup I knew I wanted to pair this gorgeous shirt (albeit slightly oversized) tucked in denim to give it more structure and a more defined silhouette, making my button-down skirt (which I also styled here) the ideal choice, after all a more casual getup is much more me.  

As I said previously, frills look great with hoyden-like footwear and I've lived in Adidas trainers all season so far so definitely the one to go with. The all-white sneakers trend (which I talked about in more depth here) is for sure one I don't see going away any time soon and I'm glad as I get to wear all the pairs I've bought recently over and over again. 

To really make this a summer's worth outfit, the final touch is this amazingly beautiful Cross Town Crossbody bag* in Yellow from Coach which I received and unboxed on Snapchat last week (follow me on Snapchat "pamscalfiblog" if you don't yet) and wore throughout the entire weekend. I'm loving the end result, but what do you think?

Frilled Shirt*: Zaful (here) // Denim Skirt: Matalan (similar here) // Denim Jacket: Matalan (here)
Trainers:  Adidas Superstar (here) // Crossbody Bag*: Coach at Farfetch (in red here)
From full on glamour in cocktail dresses to a girly injection of fun on a simple shirt, everyone is wearing ruffles and frills in one way or another; will you be trying the trend too? Let me know below!

Thanks for reading beauties!

  17. I love the high neckline of the top, Pam, gives it a beautiful Victorian touch to it. And that bag is beautiful, small enough so it's easy carry but big enough to stuff lots of stuff in it.

  34. I'v'e never worn ruffles or frills before but that's because I'm generally afraid of it. You've given some really useful tips to make it wearable, though. You look lovely, Pam, and I love that you went for double denim with it!
