frill seeker

Zara black frilled top, Whistles Fairhope sandals and Topshop Boutique leather croc skirt

I would never have thought I'd wear a top with frill sleeves. I think I retired my last remnant of ruffles about five years ago, if not longer. Since then it's been clean lines and simple cuts all the way in my wardrobe. But we all know that you can never say never when it comes to fashion. I mostly blame Ellery for bringing back oversized proportions and making mega sleeves and frilled layers suddenly seem cool again. This has now filtered down to the high street and Zara for one is full to the brim with all things frilly right now.

My pick was this top for a few reasons: firstly it's black, which makes any trend more wearable (especially avoid red or you'll look like the emoji dancing lady). Secondly, it's somehow not too fussy: the frills don't take over and it doesn't make a massive statement. The cut is also oversized and relaxed which keeps the girliness level to a minimum. Oh, and it's cheap: with any trend-led piece like this, it's best not to make too much of an investment, because I'll probably go off it in a few months' time. For now though, I am seriously loving the frills.
