When I was a girl, I absolutely HATED ruffles. Wearing them reminded me of being juvenile and I was trying with all of my might to be "big" girl. However in Spring 2009, it looks like I'll be taking a walk down memory lane. Ruffles are definitely making a large statement this season. We'll see them overstated, tiered, slated, and abstract in nature. You can pair with mini skirts, skinny jeans or your favorite pair of shorts. Just remember to keep the balance proportioned (i.e. full silhouette on top, slim/trim silhouette on bottom) or you run the risk of looking like a flower in bloom.
