Frivolous Frills!

It’s Friday – time for some frivolous fashion with frivolous frills! Try saying that after a few post-work drinks tonight.

But what will you be wearing? Frivolous frills are a big trend that is set to gap the bridge between summer and autumn, so buy now, and you’ll get lots of wear out of this trend.

Frivolous frills, ruffles, whatever you want to call them – they add a bit of fun to the simplest of pieces, in the palest of pastels, dark blacks and blues or even patterns and florals.

If you want to make a bit more of a statement then make sure your frivolous frills stand out in bright florals or bold colours and patterns. Bright bold tropical print jumpsuits with frivolous frills aren’t for everyone, but they make a huge fashion statement if you are brave enough. Perhaps a few frills on a floral dress are a way of easing into the bright frivolous frills look.

But frivolous frills come into their own in gorgeous pastel, ice-cream colours. Strawberry blush shades and creams are striking and simple, and have just that extra edge with those frills added. Muted greys and Victrorian creams looks perfect with a frilled edge or neckline.
