Trend to Try: Ruffles, Flounce and Frill

By  January 15, 2013

Girly girl flounce got extra sophisticated with structured ruffles on the Spring 2013 runway shows of Chloe, Givenchy, Gucci and more. The trend is totally wearable as the strategically placed, geometrically styled large frilled trimming doesn’t necessarily add unwanted volume to your figure. The result is a sleeker look than traditional ruffled ensembles. We love the look in pastel colors for an especially soft feminine style, though there’s something chic about black ruffled edges too. Our top designer nailing the trend is Lanvin, featuring ruffle galore this season. Is this a trend you’d like to try?
