Ruffle. Ruffle. Ruffle. A word that when said too many times sounds a bit odd or just plain silly. However, a ruffle, when you’re talking fashion, is anything but silly. Ruffles are like a reverie of romance or, replete with nostalgia, made for twirling on the dance floor. Designers like Ralph Lauren, Christian Louboutin, and Zac Posen, to name but a few, have used delicate to bold ruffles in many of their collections. This gathered fabric is delicately placed with intention on a garment to create either a pretty frill, a playful bounce or even a striking bold statement. Many times, if the ruffle is just right, there is no need to incorporate jewelry or other distracting elements to an outfit.
