Transition this runway-inspired style into your everyday life.
The Ruffle Inspiration
Ever since this stunning dress with layers upon layers of ombre flounces came down the Blumarine runway this spring, the ruffle trend has left a trail of admirers in its path. You might not have anywhere to wear a dress like this (much less be able to afford it), but you can try out the trend in more low-key ways from dresses to jewelry.
Try a ruffled cocktail dress
The wardrobe possibilities are endless with this dramatic dress. The shift silhouette suits a multitude of figures, while the ruffle-accented hem makes it festive. Thanks to the season-less color, it’s just as wearable now for a graduation, and later on with opaque tights and booties in cooler weather.
