Trend Report: Ravishing Ruffles

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Have you noticed that there seem to be a lot of ruffles happening in and on sweaters as of late?  I love a great ruffle-it’s feminine and can add a soft detail to any outfit but when looking to embrace this latest trend keep in mind the size and placement of ruffles to make it work for your particular figure type. Here are a few style solutions to aid in making this latest trend perfect for your figure.

Voluminous sleeves look best on petite figures. The multiple rows add  extra sleeve width will make you appear larger on top.

The bell sleeve detail starting below the elbow is a great option for all figure types. It elongates your arm and adds a pop of style at your wrist.

For those not wanting to accentuate their arms but still want a bit of ruffle detail opt out for this uber slim ruffle option.
