For the past couple of seasons the flounce silhouette was a big trend. We adorably called it the trumpet silhouette, whether it´s a dress or skirt. But no matter how lovely is the shape, the reality is that flounce skirts only look great on women with a fabulous derriere.
What if you were not as blessed from behind? Did you simply stand by sour-graping? Or did you go ahead and strutted it anyway? Well, there´s good news! Dolce & Gabbana re-introduced the universally-friendly clone of flounce silhouette for spring and summer. Now trending are ruffle-cuffed sleeves for tops and dresses.
Sleeves may come as fitted on the arms and then flare out half-way, or they may flare around the elbows. They may also come as subtle bell shapes with dramatic, drapey ruffle cuffs.
There are a couple of things to remember when trying the ruffle-cuffed sleeves though, according to your body type. If you have broad shoulders, opt for dresses with three quarters or long fitted sleeves with ruffle cuffs, and skirts with an A-line shape. If you have narrow shoulders, opt for shorter ruffle cuffed sleeves and a straight or fitting skirt.

Here are some of the most gorgeous pieces from D&G SS15 showcasing the ruffle cuffed sleeves trend. I´m featuring here one top and four dresses, but there are still more from the collection.
Budget Friendly Alternatives
For some of us, no matter how much we love the trend we´re just unwilling to spend too much money for it. I do try to suggest some stunning alternatives for less whenever I could. Click through the slideshow to see them.
