This Spring- Summer 2017 will be full of ruffles and frills, I personally like them a lot, it brings an edge to any outfit, though it does have a childish vibe but also sweetens up the entire look.
Right now they are everywhere, on blouses, tops, pants, skirts, dresses and they definitely have an austere architecture to it. But one has to be careful while buying a frilly piece as it adds a little volume and bulk to that part of the body.
My upper body is definitely on the heavier side, so sleeves with ruffles is not a very good idea and that’s why I like them on the skirts because there I have some advantage. I chose this dress even with ruffles on the sleeves, as they are flowy and tapering and short. And there’s always a way to deviate the attention, and to make it look nice. Like here, I have added a statement contrasting necklace which is equally eye-catching. Makeup is again kept neat and simple. Heels also make an impact of giving you some length for the extra bulk to look lesser. I am sure even without the statement necklace, this bright dress would have shone alone, but that’s my signature look, and I love adding some or a lot of jewelry always.
Do get yourself some frilly-frilly beauties this season in brightest of colors, prints or stripes. They are definitely going to stay and make a comeback as well.
