Ruffle Chic With Vanity And Me

Ruffle a few feathers with our new season fashion... read more

One of the top trends this season is ruffles and it’s easy to see why. This pretty feminine finish is the perfect addition to your 2017 wardrobe and should end up top of your shopping list. The lovely Laurie from Vanity and Me agrees and shows us how to style them with a couple of our new season pieces…

I’m sharing my post with Laura Ashley today. I have long been a fan of the brand and I can still remember my first ever visit at the Kings Road store when I was just around ten years old. My house host’s a lot of the brand’s homeware (I particularly like their lighting) and I have always found the fashion good quality and stylish. So I’m very proud to be featuring on the Laura Ashley blog.

Choosing something from the new collection was a tough choice, and you must take a look at the site to see all the latest beautiful prints for Spring/Summer. Divided into sections the romantically named collections of Vintage Romance – English Toile – Homespun – Simple Life and Terracotta

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I have chosen this Blush Pink ruffled edged sweater from the Vintage-Romance collection and I fell in love with these trousers That are flared and my favourite style. The outfit combined is feminine with a masculine edginess to the outfit.

VNM8 I love the frilled or fluted sleeve trend that’s around at the moment and have had a job finding the right length for my petite/short arms. This sweater has a frill at the cuff, but it’s well fitted at the wrist so I can get away with this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The trousers are like a tweed effect but not tweed. A speckle in the material makes them look like this but they are actually light in weight and not bulky. I love the masculine cut of these trousers. They have a slight pleat in the front, but still flattering on the tummy and I think they would be great office wear with a white shirt. They are so comfortable!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Are you loving the Ruffle trend that is everywhere at the moment? I feel at my age, even though I love all the frills and ruffles you have to be careful. That’s why I chose the masculine style trousers to tone it down a bit. Oh, and excuse the windswept look! I was at a local park with my daughter and the grandchildren. A very windy day indeed. My Grandson was telling me where to stand and how to have the photo taken – very bossy!

And made me promise that I would publish this one on the blog! I look like I’m going to be Bird-napped!
