Syncing Your Style: Fashionable Ruffles


Spring is here and so are the ruffles! Ruffles can be found on everything from handbags, to shoes and are dramatic with dresses and more classic when worn on blouses. Ruffles can be a tricky trend to wear if the placement of the ruffle is askew.

Ruffles are an exciting addition to any wardrobe. Here are some of my tips for wearing ruffles: 

  • Use them to camouflage NOT cover a problem area-too much ruffle will add pounds.
  • Place the ruffles to define your best feature-think ruffle hems to show off your fabulous gams.
  • Don't let the ruffle envelop you-let it do the talking but be careful not to let it SHOUT.
  • Ruffle skirts can go the way of a bad 80's movie super quickly, think soft, angular tiers not layers.

Ruffles are feminine, ooze lady like classyness all with the hint of flirtation. For day, a ruffled blouse or top can be paired with denim, a pencil skirt or your favorite cropped print pants.

Looking to add drama to an evening event? Ruffles are always spotted on the red carpet as they add flare, fun and femininity and a big WOW punch.

Ruffles can be equally fun for the beach, a day trip or paired with your favorite gladiator sandals for a casual yet stylish outing. I scored my TIBI ruffle drape dress at a NYC consignment shop!
