Trend Watch: Ruffles

Not just for pirates, Prince or Victorian ladies…

You will find them in nearly every store this spring and summer—ruffles have made a comeback.  The good news is there is such a variety of styles within this trend everyone will be able to participate.

If you have a small bust—rejoice—because this trend will look most flattering on you.  While your big bust gal pals have enough volume of their own, the increased volume of the ruffles will draw the eye away from your cup size and will create a focal point on the ruffles instead. 

The first blouse would also look good on a woman with a straight figure who wants to create some curves.  Pair it with a straight skirt and heels and you will look fantastic.

Now I mentioned at the start of this post that every shape could participate in this trend.  The beautiful blouse in the center by Nanette Lepore is perfect for a large busted woman with its wrap style and single ruffle layer.  This blouse would also flatter an hourglass shape with the belted waist to enhance your enviable waist.
