Spring has finally graced us with its presence, and those who have had enough of turtlenecks and winter coats can finally rejoice in the warmer weather. Break out the skirts, espadrilles and dresses because like many women, you’re probably ready to start showing off your uber-feminine side. However, if your style is in need of a warm-weather makeover, you probably aren’t feeling very excited to show off what you’ve been hiding in your closet over the past few months. Ladies that fall into this category should hit the mall and look for this season’s latest trend: ruffles.
At Dellamoda.com, we know you don’t want to look like a cupcake when you step out your front door, and that’s why we advocate ruffles that are less over the top and more subtle. Paired with the latest designer shoes, ruffles have been spotted everywhere, from the outfits of celebrities like Kerry Washington to the runways of Oscar de la Renta, Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren, Gucci and Balenciaga.
We understand that some women may be concerned that this look isn’t exactly wearable or age appropriate, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Of course, don’t don yourself in ruffles from head to toe, but a ruffled camisole or blouse under a spring blazer or worn with jeans is not only sophisticated, it’s totally in vogue, too! If you want to save the ruffles for your accessories, purses are a great way to embrace this trend. We’re a big fan of this Just Cavalli handbag. Ruffled shoes are equally hip. They are the perfect mixture of edgy and feminine and go great with an outfit that is simpler on top, like a little black dress.
