Winter Coats and Frilly Dresses

Frilly, girly skirts and dresses were well-represented on the catwalk in the Spring/Summer 09 shows. A couple of my favourite examples below come from Anna Sui (above), and Marc by Marc Jacobs (below).

If you've been looking at runway photos, are feeling inspired, and simply can't wait to break out your Spring dresses right now this very instant, then take a look at ChloƩ's Autumn/Winter 2008 collection for ideas:

Throw a winter coat on over your favourite dress for an instantly wonderful outfit. Not only will the coat keep the cold out, but a simple design will help tone down any outrageous frills or ruffles and stop you looking as though you're heading for a four-year old's birthday party. (Unless, of course, that's a look you're going for; it's one I'm quite partial to myself!)
