Ruffles

Ruffles dating back to the Elizabethan era (1558-1603) were popularized by Queen Elizabeth I. Considered one of the most fashionable people at the time, she popularized the ruffle by having it exaggerated on her neck.

Ever since Queen Elizabeth has set the ruffle, the elegance, sophistication and hint of femininity  hasn’t vanished. It’s use spread to the 18th century rococo style and has found it’s way to the modern day. The current spring 2016 trend is having a ruffle and has been seen in shows like Oscar de la Renta, Alexander McQueen and Gucci. As we look forward to spring, look for an outfit that represents a flower’s bloom.
