Already succumbed to this season’s ruffle mania? Card-carrying cropped flare convert? Then the question is… are you ready to put your money where your mouth is (or, er, your ruffles where your calves are)?

That’s right, thanks to the likes of Gucci, frills are migrating south for the winter… right down to our trouser hems. Sounds insane, looks… surprisingly chic - if you manage to style them right. We show you how to make them work for any occasion…

For Work…

  • These striped poplin trews = the perfect addition to your between-seasons work wardrobe.

  • Pair with classic, clean-cut separates to keep things sleek ‘n’ chic.

  • But switch your trusty white shirt for a cold shoulder Bardot blouse for after-hours fun…

For Play…


Jeans, ASOS; Sunglasses and Shoes, both Topshop; Top, Mango; Bag, New Look
