Rightfully Ruffled

Ruffles can be tricky.

Great ruffled edges

Pretty ruffled sweaters from L to R: J. Crew, Plenty by Tracy Reese, Anthropologie 

Too many ruffles (all over a garment or too big) and you're drowning in them like some overdone wedding cake. Too puny (sometimes on shoulder puffs) and they're a messy bump. But draped with taste, they are an elegant, surprising, feminine and sensual feature that adds great style to simple shapes. This season, I've noticed some gorgeous ruffle treatments that don't overwhelm you but add style and grace. Go for it and ruffle some feathers while you're at it.
