Style for Hire expert Elizabeth Gibbens explains how silhouettes with ruffles enhances your bust and gives you an hour glass figure; plus you decide, who in D.C. wore it best.
“Ruffles are a versatile trend, but must be done right. The updated flourish is not a flounce that visually widens by cutting a straight swath across the body, nor is it a prairie – inspired pastiche. As chic Washingtoniennes show, a riff of a ruffle draws the eye toward the face or the legs. Strategically placed, petal-like tiers enhance the bust and an create hourglass figure. Asymmetrical petal-like folds add drama to a shift dress.” – Elizabeth Gibbens
