Miss Selfridge ultimate ruffle dress

Miss Selfridge has upped the ante with its dress collection this season, taking on the big names with loads of great affordable high street versions of designer favourites.

The 'ultimate ruffle dress' is a dead ringer for the many frilled dresses and skirts in the SS 2013 Balenciaga show, as worn by Amanda Seyfried

The Miss Selfridge dress has the same simple black bodice, huge frilled peplum and oversized ruffle trimmed skirt. What you sacrifice is the detailing - the frill is wider but less voluminous, there's no pastel-hued lining poking out - but you'll save a few hundred (possibly thousand) quid if you're happy to go for the all black version. The dress is £59, available now.
