The newest fashion trend that seems to keep making appearances is ruffles. With so many clothing options out there, how do you decide what ruffle looks good on you?
When wearing ruffles, you want to keep in mind that ruffles add width. You don’t want to add ruffles in unwanted areas where you want to look slim because ruffles will only enhance this area even more. Adding ruffles to your outfit can help balance everything out. For example, if you have broad shoulders, you can wear a ruffle skirt or if you have wide hips, wear the ruffles around your shoulders.
Let’s take a look at wearing ruffles on the upper half of your body first. For women who have a larger bust, you want to avoid wearing any ruffles in that area. The ruffles will only enhance and create more volume in this area, along with unwanted attention. However, if you have a smaller bust, ruffles can look pretty and can help add some volume and shape. Bigger bust women should instead go for something that will lengthen the body and making their bust appear smaller.
If you want to wear ruffles on the bottom half of your body, there are some things you want to consider. If you have big hips or thighs, or pear-shaped, avoid wearing short skirts will lots of ruffles as this will only make your lower half appear wider. Instead these women can wear a longer skirt with ruffles that are more lengthening or graduating. Women with slim legs who aren’t big in the hip area can benefit from wearing ruffled skirts as long as the rest of the outfit is simple.
If you are looking to wear just a little bit of ruffles, you can also look for pieces with ruffles on the sleeves. This placement of ruffles will help to balance out your shoulders, bust, and hip areas. After all you want to keep it simple and don’t want to go overboard with wearing all different ruffles at one time. Think of ruffles as a statement piece and keep everything else in your outfit simple.
Maybe you are just looking to add some ruffles as an accessory. There are many options out there whether you want a ruffle scarf, jewelry, bag, shoes, or even a hair accessory. Ruffle scarves in a great color or pattern will show off your sense of style while also adding some interest to your outfit. A scarf will add volume to your neck without creating too much volume on the upper half of your body.
When it comes to adding ruffles to your outfit, there are many different options you can choose from whether you want to wear a ruffle top, skirt, or add a fun accessory to your outfit. While there are some rules for wearing ruffles, anyone can benefit from wearing them in some form. Why not try what ruffle option looks best for you?
