Ravishing Ruffles!

Want to look sexy, ladylike and chic all at the same time? Well, the key to achieving this look is easy when you drape yourself in ruffles! Of course ruffles have ripped the runway for a few seasons now, but this fall they have never looked so pretty! Whether you opt for chiffon or even tweed, this wearable trend allows you to explore your super girly side, while still maintaining a sleek and sophisticated style.

I never knew ruffles could be so cute! The styles you have displayed are on point, but I would have to opt out of it personally.

B said...

Why do I have to like the most expensive piece? I was trying to find my favorite ruffle piece in this post and of course it's the one that's $117. HA! I am sooo lovin' the dress. I actually don't own any ruffles but I do need that BCBG in my life like NOW.

K-Bear said...

BGG, I love ruffles and these items are just too cute...except for that one black dress. It looks unfinished. Anyway, cute as they are, they work best on smaller girls. I think I'd feel and look like an over stuffed sausage that's bursting out of its skin! It's so not fair. Maybe I could get away with a jacket with ruffles...maybe. :-(

PCD (Pretty Circle Drawer) said...

i've always loved ruffles...i just associate them with femininity. that max azria dress must become my next baby! that color is so perfect!

kitty vodka said...

i am really not a far of ruffles but that brown coat is super cute and the ruffles are subtle. i'd wear that.

Kim (Blog Writer, A Life of Style) said...

I love ruffles and have worn them for years. I was very happy when they popped up on the runways.

Wes said...

I just wore a ruffled dress to the wedding I went to on Saturday in an Aubergine color.

T said...

I like teeny tiny ruffles, so small they're almost just 3D stripes. Other than that, I'm not a fan. The problem with ruffles is that everyone tries to wear them. I have a post coming up on new trends that aren't for everyone. Among them ruffles and high waisted styles.

Kwana said...

These are really pretty and not overdone. Sure I'd wear them!

Shay said...

I am wearing a shirt with ruffles now ... aren't I hip LoL .. I love ruffle shirts!

MakeupByRenRen said...

i think ruffles are very cute if they're not overdone...they add a lil feminine oomph to the outfit

mimieyes said...

LOVE RUFFLES!!!!! As you said they're sexy and great compliment to small breasts. HA!!!
I love the Max Studio sweater and simple and elegant dress by Phoebe Couture.
Thanks for shopping for me.

Just K said...

I love them all especially the tank that you got as a gift! It is just adorable AND affordable. You just can't beat a great buy like that one these days. I gotta get it! Thanks, BGG!

Dominican Enigma said...

BGG You are killing me!!!!!!!!!!! I love all of them.

Bombshell said...

I love Ruffles but with my bust size they aren't very flattering. I end up looking even bigger. I do love that ruffled leather jacket...it's to die for! Well maybe I'll just hold my breath a little while.lol

that guy said...

i like your style.

Darius T. Williams said...

I absolutely love Ruffles...I like the cheddar cheese and sour version - lol.

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

@Soul - Yes, they can be quite cute! :-)

@B - I'm just like you...I usually end up liking the most expensive stuff!! LOL!

@K-Bear - I think you could find something with ruffles that would flatter your figure!

@PCD - Isn't that color so pretty?

@KittyVodka - That jacket is so adorable! I WANT IT NOW!!

@Kim - Me too, I've always loved them, probably even when they weren't in style! LOL

@Wes - I would love to see it! Your hair was so pretty for the wedding!

@T- I can't wait to read the rest of your list! I know it's going to be hilarious!

@Shay - Well isn't this post rather timely? LOL

@Kwana - Too many ruffles is not a good thing.

@Just K - Thanks!! I love that top.

@Makeupbyrenren - It totally gives that extra feminine touch.

@DE - HA!!!

@Bombshell - Yes, that jacket is a must-have!!

@Mimieyes - Hmm...maybe that's why I love ruffles, they're perfect for ppl like me who have a small bust! LOL!

@thatguy - Thank you very much!

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

@Darius T - HILARIOUS!!! I do too! LOL!!

SolShine7 said...

I avoid ruffles at all costs! ;) Something about them just doesn't fit me and my style. But you never know, if I saw a really cute piece that had ruffles I wouldn't not buy it.

lymariposa said...

I love that red jacket! I wouldn't consider myself a ruffles kind of girl but some of these looks are so cute I might have to reconsider.

Torrance Stephens - All-Mi-T said...

red drerss is tight
abd ruffles have ridges. have a great weekend

PBW said...

Not a ruffles person, but the JCrew fiona jacket is lovely in person. I've almost bought it a few times.

Ashley-Nicole said...

I love most of the designs you picked: especially the Max Studio Ruffle Sweater-dress and that Black Poly Tafetta Ruffle dress.

yummy411 said...

THE CUCKOO

In April,

Come he will,

In May,

Sing all day,

In June,

Change his tune,

In July,

Prepare to fly,

In August,

Go he must!
