I enjoy being a girl

Thank goodness feminine details have made a resurgence in fashion over the last couple of seasons. Although we love that cool, very chic, sort of androgynous look for certain occasions, it's also fun to be girly! And girly is definitely in for spring and summer.

One type of ultra-feminine detail that we're absolutely in love with right now is ruffles. Whether they're adorning the neckline, the hemline, the sleeve or the bodice, ruffles add a special touch to any garment. I think some of us, myself included, tend to shy away from girly details like ruffles because we're afraid of looking too frilly or silly. But when used properly (and in moderation) ruffles project a flirty, arty edge that's really quite sophisticated. Here are a few examples of ruffles done right.
