Ruffles and frills are having a huge moment, and we’re loving it. The traditionally romantic ruffle was spotted all over the Spring/Summer 2018 catwalks and we suspect we’ll continue to see ruffles well into the Fall/Winter 2018 season. Celebs that we adore like Olivia Culpo have clearly taken note of this and are owning the ruffle trend–and we can totally see why.
Ruffles add a feminine touch to even the most simple of pieces, transforming a basic blouse into a statement piece. With ruffles, you don’t need to over exaggerate the accessories because the frill is the accessory.
But if you’re reluctant to try the trend because you feel ruffles and frills can be seen as a bit too girly, you’ve got to check out how we’ve paired some of our pieces to create some very edgy looks. So don’t write off ruffles just yet because we know you’re going to love this trend as much as we do.
The Manvir top is a perfect example of a romantic and feminine top you can pair with something tougher to balance out the look. A style that’s unexpected and bold, just like our babes who wear CityLux.
Here we’ve matched the black Manvir top with black patent leather pants and love how the sweetness of the ruffles is contrasted with the bold ultra-sexy pant. This is no longer your sweet girl next door look. This is a badass, black sky high Louboutin, stiletto-to-your-neck, boss babe ready to take on who and whatever gets in her way.
Our Meghan dress is a definite contender to win the best dressed this year at the Deighton Cup. This bold one shoulder ruffle dress is chic and sexy all at once. If you’ve worn bandage material before, then you already know how great this Spanx-like fabric hugs and smooths every curve of your body.
Get into the ruffle trend with this fun and flirty summer maxi. We’re loving how the Desi dress exudes an ultra-feminine feel with its ruffles, yet still gives off a sultry and sassy vibe with a thigh-high leg slit. Plus it’s lightweight and perfect for hot weather.
The Naomi skirt is distinctly romantic, and the double tiered ruffle hem is seriously feminine. It’s tailored to sit perfectly high at the waist, so a crop top looks amazing with it and exposes just the right amount of skin. We love wearing it with our fun Rousha crochet top, but whatever you pair it with, the Naomi skirt will totally bring out your girly side.
We’re crushing hard on this next piece: The Chrissy dress. At CityLux, you know we love a good off-the-shoulder look, and the Chrissy dress takes it one step further by adding a bit of flounce near the top. The curve-hugging silhouette and length of the dress make it a flattering option for every body type.
The Chrissy dress knows how to make a statement; you’ll definitely turn heads in this sophisticated piece. If you're looking for that "it" dress to take you through wedding season and all the must-attend summer events in Vancouver, this is it. We even think the Chrissy dress would be the perfect outfit for the Deighton Cup.
