There are four ways to wear ruffles according to Spring 2018 Fashion Week.
And a few exceptionally stylish celebs, too. Ruffles are so widespread that there are multiple definable trends within the trend. Here are the top four poised to take over the sidewalks when warmer temps hit.
Admiring the Architecture
Emma Stone set the internet buzzing when she arrived at a London premiere in a Louis Vuitton Spring 2018 dress trimmed at the sleeves with rippling, ribbon-like ruffles. Critics were divided, but if imitation is the highest form of flattery, the outfit was a win. Other celebs have since given the architectural element a try and street style stars are also keen on the look.
A Side of Frills
Blogger Sophie Valkiers was on-point as usual during New York Fashion Week in an ivory top with ruffle trimmed sleeves. Labels as varied as Off-White and Givenchy experimented this season by placing ruffles in isolated rows along shoulders, sleeves, and even pant legs.
Micro Plus Mini
Designers gave fashion lovers plenty of options when it comes to mini dresses decorated with exotic micro ruffles. Zimmermann imagined what Marie Antoinette would wear to the tennis court, Armani played with contrast, and Naeem Khan’s romantic collection was decorated with bejeweled nose rings.
All Around Ruffles
Whether huge and voluminous or tight and compact, frills that circle all the way around the ensemble are the most interesting evolution of the ruffle trend right now. — jas
