I have had an LBD languishing in my wardrobe for a few years now (Hello, I’m CM and I am a hoarder). I’ve taken it out the last two Christmasses as a possible party look, but have dismissed it each time based on its dominating feature – three tiered layers in the skirt. Luckily for my forlorn little black dress I will be pulling it out with gusto this season, because somehow ruffles have sneaked their way back into style!
Technically it’ll be right on trend for Spring/Summer16, as seen on the catwalks of Balmain, Balenciaga and more, but the look has already been spotted on the likes of fashion plates Cate Blanchett and Carey Mulligan. They are very surprisingly versatile as well, with daytime looks sharing the same attention as black tie.
Kate Bosworth wore this Peter Pilotto number to a Screen Actors Guild Foundation event.
Laura Bailey was at the London premiere of the latest James Bond movie Spectre, in Temperley’s take on the trend.
Rooney Mara’s ethereal take comes courtesy of Alexander McQueen…
… while Cate Blanchett, her co-star in Carol, chose Proenza Schouler to showcase her ruffles.
Carey Mulligan recently wore this lilac Oscar de la Renta number to the premiere of her new movie Suffragette in LA.
This prairie style blouse has been seen on trend setter like Alexa Chung and Sunday Times Style Wardrobe Mistress Pandora Sykes. A little bit 80s, a whole lot 2016, even if you’re slightly wary of it now by next season you’ll be aching to snap one up for picnics in the countryside. So there you have it, ruffles. Here’s mine; how will you wear yours?
