Ruffle details will never date
Flounce and effect
To be frank, there’s nothing new to say about wearing ruffles. But it is worth pointing out the effect of a frill cuff or the flutter of a pleated neckline, when it comes to looking and feeling fresh for a new season. Ruffles always provided a way of putting a romantic spin on things, particularly where there’s plenty of opportunities to showcase a relaxed take on formal dressing — outdoor weddings and parties, racewear, for example. Several designers this season have looked to renaissance-style volume and drama — puffed sleeves made even more dramatic with the addition of ruffles necklines and cuffs. Worn with classic denim, it’s a modern way give a dramatic spin on a look that’s wearable and chic. And there are several routes you can take ruffles for spring. Try the flair and drama of Latin styling, with volume and gold jewellery or ruffles on quaint prairie-style dresses or soft, Victorian-style elegance. Dan Ahwa Chaos & Harmony heels $ 319.
