Whether they’re adorning a skirt’s hemline, spiraling off the hips of a cocktail dress, adorning a shirt’s capped sleeves, framing a thigh-high slit, or creating a tiered effect on a bouncy skirt, ruffles exude a girlish charm. A carefully placed, cascading ruffle detail can instantly transform an otherwise simple dress, infusing it with a subtle romanticism and a lighthearted, fun-loving personality.
If you want to toy with the trend but fear that a ruffle overload will leave you looking like a cha-cha-cha dancer, opt for a frock with a simple and discrete flouncy trim. Perfect for the office or an after-hours cocktail party, the Sofia by Sofia Vergara ruffle-front wrap dress features a surplice neckline that reveals just a hint of décolletage and a front tie that cinches the waist and leads to a ruffle trim that cascades down from the hip to the hemline, framing the side slit and allowing you to show off your gorgeous stems. Another great choice: the Sofia by Sofia Vergara sleeveless sweater dress, made of a stretchy, black-and-white ponte knit fabric in a strong geometric pattern and featuring a scoop neckline and a ruffled hem to give the frock a bit of movement. Here’s to frills that will give you plenty of fashion thrills!
