Modern Ruffles

The trend I begged my mom to buy me from Limited Too and Justice in junior high is back! This spring and summer I saw the ruffled trend all over at stores from Madewell to Nordstrom to Zara.

American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood, confidently arrived to the 74th Golden Globes Awards in her ruffled Iris Serban pink gown back in January in LA.

Surprisingly, it was the very first time Carrie attended the Golden Globes and I'm obsessed with this feminine yet sultry look. Underwood states, “When I pick things for a red carpet, I go in and start trying things on. I just want things that make me feel good. That’s what it’s all about. That was me. I felt confident and ladylike. I liked the color and the ruffles."

The trend is being carried into fall as seen on this Halogen ruffle sleeve sweater from Nordstrom as pictured on the left in addition to the Soprano ruffle trim sweatshirt as pictured on the right.

This Topshop gingham frill wrap mini skirt combines two of my favorite trends: frill and gingham coming together to form the perfect new-season skirt. The wrap style comes in a mini cut which is perfect for both day and night looks!

Whether you're looking for the smallest girly touch or going on Carrie's level, ruffles are sure to give you that dash of diva!
