ALL IN THE DETAILS: Frilly Ruffly Ruffle

This summer, ruffles are stepping up their game. They are no longer just for little girls. As I browse through the 2016 spring/summer ready-to-wear collections, designers are showcasing apparel with ruffles on sleeves, top, pants and dresses. They add such a feminine and dramatic touch to an outfit. It isn’t only an add on, but it is a statement that speaks volumes. It can be sophisticated or chic, but always fun!

Louis Vuitton’s spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection heavily focuses on futuristic styles with lots of boxy and soft tailoring. Ruffles are one of the designs that took over this collection, and Nicolas Ghesquivère has amazingly added this detail into his sci-fi themed collection. To incorporate this trend into a daily look, it can be done in two steps. First, decide what you want to tell your audience—sophisticated or casual. Second, pick out appropriate accessories to dress up or down.

This Fashionista above is totally rocking the ruffle trend! She’s wearing a festive, beaded ruffle top from Louis Vuitton. This frilly top is super adorable with a bohemian and sleek vibe. To make this outfit fun and semi casual, this Fashionista pairs it with high-waisted denim shorts and trendy platform sandals. The shoes create a longer silhouette, and the star pattern on the side gives an edgy, girly touch. Just when we all think it cannot get any better, it does. In order to complete and match her ruffle top, she picked out the cutest green Chanel Lego clutch. It is absolutely adorable! This Fashionista is the best example of how to master this ruffle trend for the season, and you all should try and incorporate it into your look!

How To: Don’t know how to rock this trend? It is very simple. Pair your ruffle item with classic pieces like denim or leather, then you are good to go!
