Ruffles are more popular than ever! They are on everything tops, dresses, bathing suits, skirts and handbags! You can not go wrong with a ruffle this season. The key is to find a ruffle size that you are comfortable with. For example the small ruffle on the shoulder of the Top Shop black and white sweater is a little bit more subdued. If you want to go BIG and really stand out then do something like the black and white colored ruffle top from Forever 21 with the tassel details. If you have a larger chest it would be better to do something like the black Rachel Zoe top where the ruffle is at the bottom and the sleeve, this way you have nice clean lines across your chest and you aren’t adding any bulk where you don’t need it. If you have broad shoulders I wouldn’t do ruffles on the shoulders (like the pink top pictured), they will only make you look wider. Doing a top that is one shoulder and the ruffle comes down at a diagonal like the one shoulder ruffle top from Forever 21 will make you look smaller. This is such a fun and feminine trend, enjoy being a little girly!
