CATWALK TREND DECODED
Style alert: purple ruffles are in
By Joanna Kyte, 7 March 2017
Fancy taking your latest ruffles obsession (we see your collection growing, girl) and turning it up to 100? Look no further than the powdery purple hues seen at the Marc Jacobs SS17 show and favoured by Charlie XCX.
Bringing nothing but poppin’ colour to the season, Marc Jacobs' models showcased sheer lavender frills for SS17. Sure, this ‘fit is kind of impractical for brunch with the girls (maybe), but it’s a Pinterest dream to get you inspired. Obsessed.
Naturally, Charlie XCX went style wild at February’s Brit Awards. Turns out, that the perfect party dress is made up of three key elements: one statement shoulder, pastel purple and ruffles x 10. Add in a pair of sparkly heels and your biggest earrings to finish the look.
Try it out
Since now all you can think about is lilac tiered threads, it’s time for you to try the trend. This mesh top from The Ragged Priest will meet all your ruffle needs – style up with fishnets under dark denim for a major grunge-girl vibe.
