Spring 2013 Trend Report

The Right Ruffle

Ruffles are always a fashion favorite on the runway, but for Spring 2013 designers elevated the ruffle to sophisticated places leaving behind the fussy flounce and favoring elegant ripples of fabric masterfully bias cut. While the deep frills edged necklines, waists and cuffs, pay homage to centuries old tradition the silhouettes strike a contemporary balance. At Ralph Lauren flounced ruffles on thigh high slit skirts lent a dramatic spanish flair. In true Givenchy style designers presented feminine ruffles framing necklines in clean ladylike elegance. chloe marni pete pilotto balenciaga j w anderson
