Fabulous Frills - 1st Part in my AW16 Key High Street Trends


Style Theory: Knitwear with frills..the perfect AW16 wardrobe update. Frivolous and fun, frills add a feminine touch to a basic sweater, taking it from last year's normcore to this year's more dramatic take on knitwear.

Featured on the catwalks of Stella McCartney, Gucci and Christopher Kane to name but a few, knitwear with frill details will immediately 'lift' a jeans and trainers look and bring it perfectly into AW16.

As always the High Street has picked up on this trend perfectly, when wearing this look keep the rest of your outfit simple, a pair of jeans and trainers will look great for daytime, or dress up your look with a frill sweater paired with boyfriend jeans and a pair of heels for a cool, laidback outfit.

Here are my favourite pieces on the high street now:

Warehouse £45
Without a doubt my favourite jumper. I adore the woven sleeve detail and with the knitwear body, this would be a perfect day to evening sweater and one of those items you will wear again and again..I am ordering today - it also comes in berry and cream. Warehouse has undergone a makeover and has a new creative director, designer Emma Cook, along with Alasdhair Willis (husband of Stella MacCartney) as it's brand director, they have breathed new, slightly edgier, more on-trend life into the brand and it is definitely one to look out for this season..
Cos £59
I bought this top in black last season and wore it loads, the red is a beautiful colour update. The jumper hides a multitude of sins (for me a bloated tummy!) and looks great with skinny jeans and heels, one of those jumpers to wear that you will know will be comfortable but also look good.
H&M £24.99
I have this sweater - see photo below and love the mix of sporty with feminine frills. A great sweater to add a luxe touch to the schoolrun. Be warned though, the arms are quite long..I had to push mine up a bit!
Baum Und Pferdgarten @Asos £163
Slightly more expensive and on the luxe side of things, this navy sweater hangs beautifully and would definitely be a 'keeper'.
H&M £29.99
This is an acquired taste..again the sleeves are super long and not eating friendly. I have bought this jumper too and love wearing it with skinny high waisted black jeans and trainers (I push the arms up on this too - a bit of a faff!)
H&M £29.99
I love the idea of this jumper under a pair of dungarees in the autumn. You will see a lot of this wine colour this season and the frill neck adds interest.
Oasis £40
This is super cute, but should be styled super casually with denim so it doesn't look too country girl-ish. Wear with boyfriend jeans and heels for a comfy and cool going out look.
Oasis £28
A subtle nod the frill trend, this would be great for work with a pair of fitted trousers and statement Gucci-esque shoes or loafers.
Warehouse £35
Another sweater perfect for the schoolrun or relaxing at the weekend, chic and cool.
M&S £35
This is another jumper that would be perfect for work, it is a subtle twist on the basic sweater and the colour is beautiful. It does come up a little on the small side, I think M&S thought people would wear it fitted but I think it looks better slightly slouchier so size up. It is Limited Edition so wont be around for long!
H&M £49.99
The perfect throw on sweater, would look great over skinny jeans with a pair of stan smith trainers.

I am obviously loving this frill trend, it is so up my street, a perfect way to dress up my looks without much effort.
 Are you a frill fan, have you bought into this trend yet? As always I would love to hear thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xxxx


  1. The frills certainly look lovely on you! It is very much your style. I'm not so sure on me... I think I will probably just use a very understated frill. I have bought a white, crepe top from zalando which has circular, fluted sleeves which I love, so maybe a darker blouse for autumn/winter with a subtle frill.

  2. The rolex replica acme is a screw-in acme with the accustomed IWC angle motif. Both the acme and the pushers are allegedly hardly amiss sized, but I anticipate you would charge a gen and a rep ancillary by ancillary to hublot uk see it. The band supplied is absolutely the aforementioned MooCroc as the one supplied with the IWC Portuguese Chrono. It is a 20mm band with a brushed clasp. It does the job and I do not plan on replacing it just yet. The fake watches faults and flaws on this watch are appealing abundant all on the dial. The numbers on the 12 and 9 subdials should all be horizontal, there are three dots missing in the 12 subdial and the 12 and 6 dials should be belted in white. Apart from that accumulation of errors, it is accursed close. I anticipate a 18-carat punch would accomplishment it off to fake cartier watches.
