The new season shirt drop: frills & flounce


By Hannah Hillyer

The new season shirt drop: frills & flounce

Scrolling through the New In section? You’ve probably noticed lots of frills and flounce in the shirt department and here’s our pick of the best on the high street right now for the new season


We are loving the selection of shirts and blouses available on the high street at the moment. Think frills, bows and lots of elaborate detailing, all of which elevate a simple shirt to something more interesting.

As there is a hint of summer still in the air, there are lots of breezy organza and chiffon options that won’t make you feel too buttoned-up. For something that will take you further into the colder seasons, opt for ones with detailing on cuffs and collars that can peek out from underneath knits for added interest.

There is no better combo than a shirt and a pair of jeans. It’s an outfit that works dressed up or down, winter or summer and is a completely ageless look. A large bow or ruffles can add serious drama and also looks deliciously retro. So embrace your inner-80’s power woman and go all out with over-sized details, just maybe skip the pencil-skirt for now.
