Ruffles have always been synonymous with feminine fashion. As a girl, I can recall ruffled adorned outfits that always made me feel special (and perhaps made me look…well…voluminous?). Well, after having tried on a ruffled dress at BCBG with my girl Cari in LA, I was re-obsessed with the detail and I realized that ruffles aren’t just for little girls, or the eighties.
This red ruffle dress by Moschino
is ladylike and ruffled.
I adore this Red Valentino dress which also takes the ruffle to a new level of sophistication with the detail on the sleeve.
While I do love color, I think my favourite and most sophisticated approach to the ruffle is black and white. And, given that this is a HUGE trend for this season, I couldn’t be happier. Check out Nikki and I chatting on the Fashion Fix video for more on the hottest trends this Spring 2014 season:
So let’s start with this Lanvin, which makes makes my inner 1980s self so darn happy!
And, if you don’t want to look like you stepped off of the set of a John Hughes movie, literally
, then grab this modern take on the black and white and ruffled- this Top Shop
perfect party dress.
Check out this black and white number from Asos.com
that also has ruffled sleeves.
My favourite ruffled dress I have FLIPPED for is this black jem from BCBG
. This is the dress that I tried on in LA and I am still dreaming about it….
So, there you have it. I may not be 12 anymore, but you will definitely catch me swishing in my ruffle dress.
