RENT THE RUFFLE EDIT

Almost with Easter in mind, designers were all over the modern ruffle for their Spring/Summer 2017 collections, with similar looks quickly hitting the high street shops. A versatile trend, we are finding many ways to combine a ruffle or two into any look, bringing life and fun to spring mornings.

In London over at Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton was going grunge with black leather ruffles embroidered with roses, while Erdem stuck to light linen, and Preen made sure to turn heads with sequins and punk vibes. As versatility goes, ruffles went from one extreme to the next

A wave of ruffles continued in Paris as Ukrainian designer Julie Paskal channeled "goa trance" at her second showing in the fashion capital, teaming Spring's prevailing trend of ruffles with bright neons, creating a "freedom" that "reunites beauty, wisdom and love."

However you take on the frills of Spring, ruffles are definitely a trend to incorporate into your Easter wardrobe. Browse the Ruffle Edit for inspiration.
