I’ve hit that point in the year, where i’m so excited for the new season! With myself moving to a new city next week to my masters, I wanted to make sure my wardrobe was fully up to-date with the latest trends! If you read my latest fashion post, (click here to view) you’ll know I’m obsessed with colour blocking, metallics, velvet…basically anything that Autumn/Winter related really! But for now, lets talk ’bout ruffles.
Shirts have been present throughout the whole summer, especially shirts with cut-out shoulders. However, the start of Autumn/Winter 2016 has saw a emergence of Victorian ruffles across the high-street.
This shirt from Topshop came to £34. I know it’s a bit pricey for a shirt, but how versatile is it! Not only will this shirt look great with a jumper thrown over it, or worn with a leather jacket for a slightly edgier look. But the it’ll also be a great fashion forward choice for a interview! Overall I think it’s a great investment piece for this season than can be dressed up or down. If you’re not willing to pay the £34, Primark have apparently produced a copy cat version…so if I were you, I’d go out and grab while you can!
Staying on the ruffle trend, this is a very different look. The jumper dress is from Miss Selfridge at £28, and the gillet is from New Look at £25. This would be my ideal outfit to just shot on for uni without really thinking about it. Or i’ll maybe grab cocktails in it, by adding block heels. Although jumper dresses can be seen all over the high-street this time ever year, the ruffles and the cut out shoulder make the dress really unique.
With both the ruffle looks, I added these sock boots from River Island. However, there haven’t seemed to photograph very well…so click for the to view them!
