Taking a cue from the oh-so-popular peplum, ruffles have made a major comeback this spring. These feminine frills add the perfect dose of flirt and fun to any outfit. Ruffled hems and sleeves are a great accent to everything from a casual tee to a fancy party dress. Side note: How gorgeous is that Marchesa Cocktail Dress. Talk about the perfect rehearsal dinner frock for an ultra chic bride!
Asymmetrical ruffles are my favorite rendition of this trend. Their sculptural interest comes off modern and far from juvenile. Ruffled bathing suits are also a lot of fun – and the perfect way to add a little oomph to to your top section. I also love the idea of loose, silk, ruffled shorts. These from BCBGeneration (not pictured) would be so cute in a bright orange or soft metallic. And you can’t go wrong with a sweet ruffled skirt. As you can see below, I tend to gravitate toward solid colors when dealing with ruffled details. It feels more sophisticated and easy to wear. What do you think? How do you this trend?
