No longer reserved for girly dresses, ruffles have evolved into bigger and bolder flounces, and are all over everything! Not only are they used in airy, light numbers, ruffles are now also structured and sculptured — think leather and metal .

More dramatic (yet still romantic) than ever, these frills are back to add that extra oomph to our outfits.
