The idea of ruffles might conjure images of pirates or grandmothers (or better yet, a combination of the two), but our runway watch spots big name designers like Chanel and Acne rocking the girly girl look. Small ruffles add texture and drama, while an exaggerated ruffle can take a minimalist look into a different place. Embrace the idea from shirt plackets to a great coat embellishment, but if at any point you feel like popping a parrot on your shoulder…you’ve gone too far.
