I think it has to be fairly safe to say that spring is now in the air along with this season’s ruffles and romance, so here are just a few of the ladylike looks, frills and flounces to be found at the very best of the online boutiques, including designers Marc Jacobs, Alberta Ferretti, Halston Heritage and Elie Tahari. Love to love them all.
The trick with wearing ruffles and staying modern is, of course, all in the accessories. Wear All Saints’ ivory silk ruffled shirt with your favourite skinny jeans and ballet pumps, Elie Tahari’s pink ruffled front dress with modern pointed toe heels and Alberta Ferretti’s long tiered dress with statement jewellery and the sleekest of gold sandals.
These clothes are all meant to be pretty and feminine with a contemporary feel. There’s a very ladylike summer approaching, obviously………….
