Fashion Friday: the frillier the better

Fashion Friday: the frillier the better

-1 By Ashley Deppen

Ruffles and fringe and tulle, oh my! The frillier the better and this season’s trends are all about bringing out the feminine and flirty side of fashion. Ruffles, fringe and tulle are what you need to keep a look out for this season and whether you like it or not, it’s time for that inner girly-girl to shine.

Ruffles have become one of fashion’s mainstream trends this fall. They are romantic and simplistic.  Ruffles are welcome anywhere and are right for a woman at any age. Ruffles can be found on blouses, skirts, sweaters, jackets, shoes, and bags. Ruffled tanks that you bought for the summer can easily be turned into underpinnings this fall and winter season; layer a ruffled tank under a belted cashmere sweater and you have a sophisticated look that can be worn day or night. Go big and try a Marc Jacobs tiered ruffled skirt—or start small, and with a ruffled blouse by Bell.


Another trend that has made a big come back this season is 70’s style fringe. Although this vintage inspired look often appeals to the boho-chic  fashionista, fringe has been spotted on everything from elegant red carpet gowns, to traditionally preppy Tory Burch handbags. The key to wearing fringe…don’t go overboard, and keep it simple. For the evening try a black fringe cocktail dress or pair a cashmere shrug adorned in fringe with pants and boots. For daytime wear, throw a leather fringe necklace on with a white t-shirt, or tuck those skinny jeans into your knee high fringed moccasins.   

If you long to don a tutu, it’s your lucky day! Our last fashion must-have was named one of the top women’s fashion trends for the fall…tulle. Many fashion designers are incorporating tulle into their collections this season producing wispy, featherweight party frocks that are guaranteed to amaze. The tulle we are seeing on the runway is soft tulle, not so sharp like the traditional wedding dress tulle. The looks we are seeing are either all-out ballerina, or rocker. This look is about having fun with fashion.   Throw a pair of work boots on with a mini-tulle skirt, and oh so fashion forward you will be.
