Designer brand Chloé reworked ruffles for spring 2013, not shy or restrained, but bold and striking, featuring large ruffled sleeves and fan-like, ruffle front details on dresses and tops. Ruffles are also teamed with frills and tiered designs. We know that last spring, Oscar de la Renta created the trend in both modern and contemporary, refined and bold forms. But for this coming spring 2013, Chloé took ruffles in a whole new level, large and extravagant. Here are three ways to get that un-dying ruffle trend.
Ruffle Top with Ivory Pants
This look isn´t about wearing ruffles as a detail but as an outfit itself. Therefore be prepared to have these large ruffles as the center of attention. A beige ruffle ruche wrap belted jacket is great to wear with white or ivory trousers. If your top has a detachable belt, you can swap it up with a gold slim belt. Your trousers can be either cropped skinnies or a cropped, soft squared pants. Complete with bronze strappy sandals.
Ruffle Blouse with Yellow Cropped Pants
If you can find a gray blouse with ruffled sleeves, the better. But if you can´t, then opt for a black ruffled blouse instead to team with yellow or mustard trousers. Black works great with yellow so rest assured that this alternative will work perfectly. Whether it´s a cropped, well-crafted yellow pants or a normal yellow skinny jeans that you want to wear with a ruffle blouse, your outfit looks polished with a nude t-strap pump and a nude handbag.
Styling a Ruffled Dress
It´s never a sin to indulge especially on a luxurious ruffled dress. If ruffles create dreamy, inspiring fairy-tale on a wedding dress, it translates into a whole new meaning for realistic, daily fashion. This ruffled dress with pleated skirt, ruffled button-embellished bodice, and turtleneck design exudes luxury in a subtle, feminine and sophisticated language. It looks equally cute with a bronze pump or an aqua flat.
