Ruffles Trend

Feminine, flirty and over the top, this season's ruffle trend is back and bolder than ever. 

We've spotted an abundance of gorgeous ruffles on the spring runways at Balenciaga, Dior and Oscar de la Renta, just to name a few, and were overcome with sheer delight. 

These lovely ladylike details instantly dress up any number of silhouettes, and can brilliantly play up fabulous patterns, as seen on Kerry Washington's eccentric ensemble. 

Best of all, ruffles are incredibly wearable, no matter your style!

Balance a ruffled cami or blouse with a classic pair of skinny jeans or cigarette pants, or add a small accessory like a voluminous clutch to your look if you're in a more demure mood.

A ruffled pair of heels makes a style statement if the rest of the outfit is kept simple and streamlined, while a flirty skirt with a flounce hemline adds unexpected excitement when heading into the office.

And for the girliest of girls, we've rounded up a number of pretty frocks just in time for all of those bridal showers, tea parties and Sunday brunch invites that are sure to roll in. 

Would you wear the ruffle trend?
