The Ruffle Trend without the Overstatement

Ruffles are everywhere this season, but is there a way to wear ruffles without looking like some sort of piñata? There are some fashion pieces that have chosen to portray ruffles in a pretty but understated way, like the picks shown by Susana Monaco and McQ Alexander McQueen. By restraining the ruffles to one part of the garment where it makes sense to have them, you will be able to avoid the ballroom dancing look.

The ruffle trend when worn well will give you a romantic touch that is perfect for summer. Just remember to avoid all-over ruffles and wear simple coordinating pieces to balance the outfit.
