Romantic Ruffles

One of our favorite trends out there right now are ruffles.  To fully embrace this trend you must know these are NOT the ruffles you may recall from Hello, Dolly! or the 1970's.  Instead, these modern ruffles are soft & feminine, with cascading layers of fabric that create a look that is ultra luxurious.  This trend has made its way from clothing to jewelry to shoes, bedding,  and general home decor.  Add a little frill to you life by checking out some of our favorite ruffles for this spring/summer season.

Big surprise, we love Anthropologie!  And we love this pretty little frock, with its' adorable ruffles, sweet feminine color, and fluttery silk fabric!

Get frilly feet with these great sandals by Victorias Secret! These summer sandals come in a variety of colors and have beautiful ruffle detailing down the center!

How cute!  We love this tiered, ruffly skirt from Charlotte Russe! We think this skirt is a great addition to your spring or summer wardrobe and is the perfect way to liven up a simple tank or tee!

Everyone needs a great white tank!  But, just because it's white doesn't mean it needs to be plain and boring!  Choose a rufflled tank like this one, from Express, and you'll be sure to look cool and stay cool all summer long.

Handbags have certainly not been spared from this trend!  Our favorite is this studded bag by Steve Madden. The color is soft, the frills are perfectly girly, and the gold studs add just enough hardware to give this bag a little edge.

Ruffles in the workplace?  Absolutely! The Limited  has some great options, like this pea green halter top with subtle ruffles adorning the collar.  This would be a lovely addition to your spring or summer work ensemble and would look great with your powersuit!

You'll be begging for a rain when you have this to protect you! This sweet umbrella, available at Nordstrom, comes in beautiful colors and has a great embellished trim that makes this just what we need to brave those summer storms.

And, of course, every girl needs some extravagant bedding fit for a queen.  This duvet from Urban Outfitters is the blanket of our dreams, complete with modern colors and lavish tiers of soft fabric that we're sure will have you catching z's in no time!
