#FashionFriday: Ruffles

The frills are out in full force!

Spotted on numerous runways this Spring/Summer 2017, the oh-so feminine details are slowly becoming a street-style favourite. Once viewed as frumpy and unflattering, you can now count on the flouncy details to give the simplest of outfits that wow factor; modern silhouettes do the trick! The best part? The versatile frills complements different styles, so regardless of your style, you’ll be able to take your pick. Here are five tips on how to rock the trend in style:

#1 Tune up the volume

Let your ruffled piece take center stage by pairing it with a plain top, without forgetting to add that bit of oomph with amped-up bell sleeves. Nail two trends in one look!

#2 It’s all in the details

Zoom in on the seemingly-casual outfit and you’ll notice that the stylista brought her fashion A game. From the ruffle-sleeved sweater to frayed jeans and fishnet-stocking-heels pairing, the off-day outfit is elevated, for sure.

#3 Plain and simple

Like tip #1, pairing your statement piece with a muted top or bottom is fail-proof. We love how this fashionista kept it chic and sleek with a turtleneck top and chic pointy-toe pumps, and the clutch gave her overall look that subtle pop of colour.

#4 Pile it on

When you feel like taking it up a notch, feel free to layer up by throwing on a blazer and jeans that gives the ensemble a more streamlined silhouette. For starters, monochrome tones are the way to go.

#5 Style mix

When you’ve run out of ideas to style your ruffled piece, try going down a different route to style it up! We love how Yoyo juxtaposed her notice-me striped top with boho separates – result? A refreshing mix that is no less fashionable.
