I’m having a thing about: frills, flutes and flounces

Frills, flutes, flounces and any top that has a wrist detail, I’m into it.

It’s also BIG news, fashion-wise, with barely a sweatshirt, jacket or tee going without some kind of f-word embellishement.

I won’t lie though, the frills thing has been big for me for a while.

I bought a pretty fabulous khaki green blouse from H&M just before Christmas and have worn that so much. (It’s also here in pink and can we just discuss how fabulous this one is please?)

hmAnd the top I’m wearing in the image below is from Zara – and now sadly out of stock – but it did actually go back. Despite loving the colour and style, I couldn’t justify another frill.

Zara – along with H&M – are fellow flounce addicts. I adore this simple black chiffon style (wear with this underneath).

And this one is gorgeous – wear with this polo neck underneath it to avoid any unseasonal stomach flashing. Oh and HELLO to this sexy number!


This yellow blouse from M&S  is now sold out online, but again I have worn it in so many more ways than I initially thought I would, under pinafore dresses, with denim and tucked into skirts.

msAnd while everyone in the world (it seems!) has the ivory version of this Monsoon blouse, did you know it was now available in black too?

monsoonThe moral of this story is, that while one might consider a frill to be, well, a bit of a wardrobe thrill – they’re actually way more versatile than that.

I’ve worn my Monsoon Victoriana blouse underneath crew neck knits with the collar and cuffs showing (no giggling at the back), or with a contrast camisole underneath.

And seeing as they’re showing no signs of, erm, flouncing off, here are some of my current favourites.
