It is the year of the ruffle! They are back and bigger than ever. There is no better time to start rocking this trend then RIGHT NOW. Lightweight ruffles will make your summer outfit stand out so much more! I was skeptical of this look at first but have officially dove all the way in and am loving it.
If this girly fabrication detail is somewhat daunting for you, have no fear because I was the same way. When this style is not done correctly it can easily come across as immature and too cutesy. Your best bet is to start small and ease your way in. Ruffles are awesome for hiding areas that we may not want to draw attention to. Wearing a ruffled piece will draw the eye in a different direction than your problem area (even though I am sure you don’t have any). It is all about distracting the eye and adding interest!
I fell in love with anything that features a small ruffled sleeve. It is just the sweetest added touch to a blouse or dress! This is the perfect way to sneak some ruffles into your daytime ensemble that won’t overwhelm you.
For the night-time you can almost always catch me in a ruffled jumpsuit. I am obsessed with these gathered fabric wonders. Wearing jumpsuits may be my favorite thing of all time, so why not knock out two trends at once?! I chose all black to ensure the added material doesn’t make me look too bulky (forever thankful that black is slimming). Look for design details such as a one shoulder or strapless neckline to make you a trending triumph and show a tasteful amount of skin.
Fashions are always coming back in style and reinventing themselves. Chances are you already have a ruffled number hanging in your closet! Now is the time to dust it off because this embellishment is back in a BIG way. If you don’t own anything for this look that is fine because you can’t shop anywhere these days without running into ruffled pieces.
What are your thoughts on this trend? I hope you’re loving it as much as I am. You will look stunning in this style, I just know it! Click down below for all my ruffle-y choices.
