Ruffles and frills are big news for the coming season. Feminine and frothy like Mulberry (below) or structured and clean as seen at Donna Karan.

This dress from Topshop may be inclined to add a few inches to your honed silhouette but this is a fashion fabulous affair for the light hearted, rather than those loving the grounded wearability of the new minimal look.

British brand Mulberry cleverly teamed their feathery ruffles with leopard print, oversized bed-head bouffants and heavy black eyeliner to offset the prettiness of the look.

Former MTV host Alexa Chung has become the unofficial muse for the label and her quirky style has certainly added a more youthful edge.

From the Alexa satchel to the chain-strapped Edna, the collection came accessorised with what Mulberry are truly renowned for, their bags. Each more covetable than the next!
