Mirror, mirror, on the wall, what’s the next trend to transcend its in-vogue status to become a wardrobe staple? Consider this the cherry-on-top of your spring wardrobe… Ruffles!
My last memory of wearing ruffles was in the early 80's. For a Christmas Party, I wore this hot pink tiered ruffle mini skirt and now, every time I think about my fashion regrets, I land on this particular cringe-worthy piece. Like, what was I thinking? But to my surprise, ruffles are back as one of this season's biggest trends and all over some big Canadian brands, and I hate to say it, but I'm now rethinking the flouncy finish.
Ruffles have this power to lift the simplest of pieces into something unique and fun to look at plus we’ve seen them everywhere since forever. Think tiered prairie dresses, ruffle sleeve blouses and textured skirts. Whether it be a little frill down a trouser or an unexpected curve on the bottom of your slit dress, ruffles sure do know how to make a statement. It's the perfect way to sweeten up any look.
There are a handful of Canadian designers who have made ruffles a signature style and brilliantly continue to reinvent them every season especially during the spring and summer! There are also celebrities who are big fans of the ruffley action. For more convincing, scroll through to see how all 10 stars are rocking ruffles and get inspired for your spring/summer fashion ideas.
