I first found ruffles intoxicating back in the 80’s when they turned up on all five members of Duran Duran. I spent my weekends at the mall, searching out any pieces to add to my pre-teen wardrobe, that could be tied in a bow. But, as with all good things~ ruffles had come and gone just about as quick as Simon’s bleached out ‘do and Nick’s eyeliner. Fast forward, a few decades and guess what? Ruffles are back! But, this time around-they are only for the ladies and aren’t just popping up on blouses and dresses. They are also making feminine statements on shoes and bags. I have a new found appreciateion for their fluttery details, now that I’m in my thirties~ they are perfect for hiding figure flaws.
