TREND ALERT: FRILL SEEKER

FRILL TREND SPRING SUMMER 2017
Fendi, Christian Dior, Altuzarra, Chloé, Zimmermann

Embrace this season’s romantic spirit in a flurry of flounces, frills and ruffles. Beguiling femininity was at the fore on the spring/summer 2017 catwalks as designers offered up frothy confections that were made for coy flirtations and breezy summer days.

The prettiest looks came via Simone Rocha, Chloé and Preen, which adopted a more-is-more approach to the frill trend, festooning skirts and dresses with gossamer tendrils of fabric, while a sleeker approach was seen at Rosie Assoulin and Prada, where a more architectural take on the trend was at play.

Try Ganni‘s playfully ruffled denim miniskirt with a simple Tee or silk blouse for effortless off-duty elegance, or pair Attico‘s delicate floral camisole top with tailored pieces in ice cream shades for a fresh 9-to-5 look. And your summer holiday won’t be complete without this white dress from Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini – heavenly with tan leather sandals and a large beachside margarita.
