All hail the modern ruffle! That’s right. The votes are in for this year’s style trends, and ruffles are here to stay. But not in the way your mother might have worn them. Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen epitomised this new ruffle theory when she pieced together leathery waves with budding roses. In short, ruffles aren’t just the girly girl’s fashion trend anymore.
Celebrity fashion can’t seem to get enough of the ruffle trend. For instance, the 2017 BAFTA Awards breezed by in ruffles of all shapes and sizes. While Naomie Harris dons a classic and almost fairy tale version of the ruffles trend, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge steps out in ruffles that give a bit of elegant detail to her Alexander McQueen dress. These stylish dresses are here to adorn all types of women, and they’re here to stay.
Go for a chic take on ruffles in the Olivia Palermo style. Nothing says cool quite like this organic cotton masterpiece. Add a fun pair of shoes and some sunnies to complete this effortless spring look.
Take a whirl into the patterned realm and try this coral ruffle dress. Or step into the romantic off the shoulder Monet midi for a softer look. You simply can’t go wrong with a little pink and a little ruffle.
