Happy Tuesday, beauties!

Today's post is another trend report and this time we'll be discussing the ruffle trend! Ruffles were spotted in all forms on the Spring 2016 runways in dresses and tops, as well as off the shoulder and full on sleeves. But how does one wear this romantic trend, while maintaining proportions for a specific body shape? Look no further, I've got you covered with pieces I selected specifically for each of the four main shapes! Hopefully, they will give you inspiration in wearing the trend in a way that will flatter your fabulous figure this season, there is something for everybody!

STYLE TIP: Avoid ruffle placement on the bust and around the midsection, which will make the areas appear larger. Instead, opt for skirts, shorts and dresses with ruffle hems to add dimension and focus to those fabulous lean legs of yours! 




1 / 2 / 3 / 4

STYLE TIP: Avoid skirts and dresses that have larger ruffles, as they will make the hips appear wider and the upper body smaller. Opt for ruffled blouses and sleeves that will draw the eye upwards, while adding dimension, balancing out those fabulous hips; them hips don't lie!

STYLE TIP: As with the rectangular shape, you can opt for ruffle pieces in all shapes and sizes. You have curves on both the top and bottom portions of your body, so don't hide everything, babe! Instead, look for pieces that allow your natural curves to shine through by selecting pieces that either hug your curves or wear a more tailored piece on the opposite end of where your ruffled piece is worn, i.e. a ruffled off the shoulder top with a pair of skinny jeans.


I hope you found this post helpful in selecting the most flattering ruffle pieces for your body shape. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your day is as fabulous as you!
