If you've been on Instagram lately, one trend that keeps popping up is ruffled, well, everything. 

Ruffles are everywhere for spring, on absolutely every runway, and the high street has taken note.

Ruffles may seem like a tricky or unflattering trend, but it's actually really easy to pull off. 

Blue blouse €44.99, White blouse €44.99, Grey jumper €14.99

The delightful thing about the trend is that you can go as out-there or subtle as you'd like with the look, depending on how fond of a good frill you are. 

This blue H&M blouse is a dramatic way to do the trend, and would look equally good with a PVC skirt and fishnet tights as it would with dark jeans and loafers.

This white shirt is ideal for incorporating the look into your office ensembles, and this grey jumper is one way to rock soft, subtle and casual frills. 

Dress €18.00, Jeans €17.00, Pink dress €16.00

Dresses are another easy way to work frills, as all you have to do is throw it on and go, no styling necessary. 

These Penneys dresses are perfect with heels for a night out, or casual denim lovers can incorporate ruffles onto the hems of their jeans.

The frilled jeans look cute AF with a band T-shirt and converse, or with high mules and a slinky shirt. 

Jumper €10.00, Top €11.99, Dress €19.99

And for the casual frill-seeker, these pieces from New Look are the comfy, simple way to rock ruffles. 

This jumper is just the updated, spring version of your current staple knit, while this blue top is a chuck-on-and-go piece if we ever saw one.

This black dress for teens does subtle frills on the sleeves, so minimalists can get the look without the fuss. 

We're obsessed with ruffles this season, and keeping the look chic is easier than we thought. 



The cold shoulder trend took over as one of 2016's best loved trends, but the weather isn't quite right at the moment to bare our pasty shoulders.

While we're waiting for summer to roll back around, and exposed décolletage with it, we're loving the statement sleeve, this springs must-try trend.

Boohoo, € 23.00 

From ruffles to drawstrings to mesh, there's more than one way to add some interest on your sleeves.

This bell sleeved jumper from Boohoo is ideal for casual weekends or brunching, just mind you don't trail your sleeves in the soup. 

 H&M, €44.99

Mixing print and a statement ruffle sleeve definitely isn't for the faint of heart.

Create a high-fashion look by teaming this shirt with some patent leather pants, or tone it down with some ripped skinny jeans and a black duster coat. 

 Zara, €49.95

This look isn't the exclusive domain of day wear, adding a luxe metallic finish to fabric makes the statement sleeve perfect for a big night out. 

 Boohoo, €20.00 

Even the classic bomber jacket is ready to move into the spring season with ruched detailing on the sleeves. 

Zara,  €39.95

As usual, Zara is leading the way with this high street trend.

This candy-striped blouse has an extremely chic bow tie on the arms, so if a ruffle isn't your thing, this is for you. 

 ASOS, €40.00

Incorporating heavy fabrics like denim can look amazing, especially when they have a frayed hem from raw cutting.

This affordable ASOS tunic wouldn't look out of place on an Olsen twin and if we needed another reason to buy, that would be it. 

Boohoo, €20.00

Not exclusive to tops, dresses are getting a silhouette overhaul this season. 

Simple shifts are getting a high-fashion makeover with excess fabric on the sleeves. We love the pastel pink shade of this Boohoo number. 

Pretty Little Thing, €35.00

How perfect is this little red dress for a Valentine's night out with the girls?


Velvet? Check. Keyhole neckline? Check. Ruffle sleeve? Check.

This blue ASOS swing dress is literally ticking all the boxes when it comes to this seasons trends. 

Boohoo, €23.00

Tudor-style tops with Victorian and shirt collars are being amped up for the new season with dramatic cascades of ruffles adorning the sleeves.

Whether you go hard or go home on this trend, there's no denying that statement sleeves are taking over the high street.
