The Summers Most Flattering Trend

During the warmer months, I love outfits that are easy, flirty and light, which is why I love this body–friendly summer trend: ruffles. For some women, flounces may seem a bit daunting, but pieces with well–placed ruffles can be very flattering – and oh, so pretty. Swoon.

Ruffles act as an accessory for your outfit and can elevate an otherwise ordinary top (or bottom even!). Pieces with smaller ruffles can be polished enough for work and pieces with more exaggerated accents are great for the weekend or a night out with your girls. Not a fan of the romantic trend? You can always tone it down by layering a ruffled top with a tailored blazer or fitted trousers.

Below I am sharing my favorite ruffled pieces, great for the summer season. So, if you’ve got room in your closet, think about adding one of these versatile choices:

    I love the burgundy wrap skirt! But not sure it would suit me all that much, definitely don’t feel like I have the figure for anything like that any more! Maybe I should use the want for it as motivation? haha

      Thank you Erin! The ruffles on the jeans is something I had not seen before, so I had to include it!

    I do love ruffles! I have a floral top from Miss Selfridge with a ruffle across the centre and it compliments my chest very well!
