trend alert: ruffles & frills

If you’re a frill seeker, then you’re sure to love this trend as it’s about to take over everyone’s wardrobes.

Ruffles and frills have been seen everywhere recently and it comes as no surprise that we’ve got Bridgerton to thank for that. The most-watched series on Netflix of all time has certainly made its mark in our hearts and wardrobes. The show took inspiration from the Victorian era, which is when ruffles and frills came into their own. During this time, fashion was a way of expressing one’s class in a hierarchal society; the more opulent and intricate your outfits were, the more money you appeared to have. So, with that, ruffle and frill details took over - and we couldn’t be happier about the fact that they’re back again today.

If you’re wondering how you can add frills and ruffles to your wardrobe in the modern day, then you’re in luck as we’ve rounded up 15 ways celebrities are wearing them now to help inspire you.
