Ruffled Runways; As seen at Gucci, Chloe, and Givenchy, the ruffle dress is having a moment, wear to summer weddings or dinner dates and be sure to get the wow factor you deserve...



For a dressier look, opt for classic shift shapes which add a sophisticated edge to the ruffle trend. if the frills are sparingly placed you can accessorise a little. try a statement necklace or jewelled earrings to add some evening glitz. Drop hem styles reminiscent of the 1920s, are bang on trend


Loose flowing floral furls are a pretty alternative for festival goers and create that sienna Miller boho style. We love this maxi version from Miss selfridge, which looks great teamed with tan accessories. Just add some sky high wedges to take this maxi from day to night. avoid ruffles on your lower half if you have larger hips, they will only accentuate them.

WEDDING GUEST Oversized ruffles act as their own accessory so there is no need to pile on the bling, keep things simple with a nude palette and let your ruffles do the talking. if the detail falls around the next line sweep your hair into an up do or sleek pony to keep the line fuss free.

ruffle cami top, PS18, oasis? CHAT fashion Coleen's ColleCtion This week we chatted to Coleen Rooney about her new children's wear collection 'Cool Candy'for

You've designed a new children's wear and nursery range for Littlewoods, what made you want to focus on children? I have really enjoyed working with Littlewoods over the years and we are always looking for ideas to expand the 'Coleen' brand. Therefore, with being a Mummy, we thought children's wear and a nursery collection would be perfect.

What were your inspirations? The boys range is influenced by Kai. It is cool with its graphics and quite informal, yet has some smart pieces too. The girls' range is a palette of candy tones, pretty ditsy prints and is frilly and delicate.

What's your favourite piece in the collection? In the boys I love the navy blazer, it looks so smart and on trend.

The boys skinny, denim jeans are lovely too. There are so many pretty outfits for the girls!

Was it a different process to designing your fashion and jewellery ranges? When it came to health and safety, yes. There's so much to think of with things like buttons and fastenings. Would you like the range to expand in future? We are already working on the next collection. It's all very exciting!

The Cool Candy collection by Coleen is available to buy online now at (clothes range from PS9 - to PS37 for nursery products).
