Dress in ruffles this season
A slinky little black dress may be classic and chic, but right now the ruffled frock is the only style you should be worrying about.
This cute look has been seen all over the runways recently, with labels such as Rebecca Taylor at the Fall/Winter 11 show embracing the dishevelled style. The interesting shape makes a change from the constant bombardment of body-con gowns, and is good news for ladies who don’t feel confident in tight-fitting items.
The ruffled aesthetic works particularly well in feminine fabrics such as chiffon, and while Rebecca Taylor went for warm brown tones, the trend is equally effective in girly colours such as candyfloss pink and pale yellow.
The ruffled dress is ideal for a night out if teamed with a pair of ladylike heels and a cute shrug. Accentuate the aesthetic with curly tresses and natural-yet-feminine cosmetics for a fresh faced look.
