Whether you call them ruffles or frills, they are currently the hottest trend of the summer. Following the spring and summer ready-wear-shows, frills have been dominating the fashion world and can be seen on just about everything from dresses and blouses and skirts and shoes. This high fashion trend can instantly make any look fun and girly and is the perfect trend to rock this summer. If you have yet to snag a frilled item for yourself, here are five stylish items to add to your wardrobe.
This simple off the shoulder dress from Free People is very on trend this season. The cut is perfect for dressing down with a pair of gladiator sandals or up with a pair of wedges.

The Office-Approved Dress
Kate Spade is known for her unique and feminine pieces, and this dress is definitely no exception. This dress is perfect for the office thanks to its Oxford-style cut and tailored shirt component.

The Romantic Top
We can’t get enough of this little number from Free People. The cascading frills can add a romantic touch to any outfit. When wearing a bold top like this, make sure to keep the rest of your look simple – think slicked back hair and minimal jewellery.

Play around with the season’s hottest trend by picking up a frilled shoe in a fun colour, like millennial pink. When rocking something as bold as a frilled shoe, make sure to keep the look minimal, think a sweater or blouse and kick-flare jeans.
