A fall trend that I've seen subtly creeping up everywhere is ruffles. Reviewers who have bought the Anthropologie dress below have stated that the ruffles are extremely flattering, and that they hide certain areas that they want hidden. Personally, I love this dress, in grey and black. I'd totally wear it out with my hair pulled back to show off the sheer neckline. But the ruffles? I'm not usually a ruffle person. Plus while this dress may be flattering, I'm not sure if ruffles are flattering overall. I think it depends on the garment shape itself. What do you guys think?
A Thousand Tiers dress, $188.00
I am really on the fence about this top. I think it could be super cute and flattering on some people, but it could be a hot mess on others. I wish every clothing site allowed people to review- it would make purchasing online a lot easier!
BB Dakota Julianne top, $72.00
I like this Free People top, but I think it's kind of too long. Again, I think it would look best on the correct body type, but who knows? I could be missing something here when it comes to ruffles and they could be the end of all of our problems (or problem areas.)
Lots of Ruffles tunic, $98.00
Or you could always play it safe and go easy on the ruffles. Like with this gorgeous dress by Juicy Couture (I can't believe I just said "gorgeous" and "Juicy Couture" in the same sentence...)
Side Ruffle Tunic dress, $298.00
So far my favorite is the Anthropologie dress, but I'm not sure I buy into the whole ruffles trend. I keep thinking back to Project Runway a few episodes back, where Nicolas repeatedly stated that "ruffles were created to hide flaws." But there's really nothing wrong with that, right?
So who's going to rock the ruffles this fall?
