Ruffles are the new black.  Or red.  Turquoise?  Yes, turquoise is the new hot.  Therefore, through my massively talented deductive reasoning skills, ruffles = hot.

Have you noticed that ruffles are everywhere?  I love them.  Ruffles are so feminine and flirty and flat out summery.  Ruffles at every price point.

Will you wear ruffles?  Do they make you feel too young?  There isn’t such a thing as too young in my book, so ruffles it is!

  1. jill :

    ruffles? oh, heavens yes!!

    • Petit Elefant :

      You, in ruffles? Magic.

    • Petit Elefant :

      I am too!

      That link is awesome, so cool, thanks for sharing!

  2. kelleyn :

    I love the ruffles!

    • Petit Elefant :

      Aren’t they great? I love the ruffles too.

  3. kim @ mommyknows :

    I love ruffles, but I am on the rather large side. I’m afraid to wear them.

    • Petit Elefant :

      You know what you can wear instead? A ruffle fabric necklace. Have you seen those on Etsy? Darling.

    • Tina :

      I’m on the rather large side also and was a little afraid. I recently bought a dress with ruffles and have had nothing but rave reviews of it. Be bold. Go for it!

      • Petit Elefant :

        Yay Tina!

        I say embrace it. I’m curvy, and it works okay on me. :)

  4. Kirsten Wright :

    Those are SO SO SO cute. Love the yellow one especially! It was fun meeting you at EVO!

    • Petit Elefant :

      Aren’t they great?
      It was great meeting you too!

  5. Andrea :

    LOFT also has a ton of cute ruffly tops on sale which right now means an extra 50% off! Ruffles on the cheap = happiness.

    • Petit Elefant :

      Oh stop. I don’t think I needed to know that, I love LOFT and I {obviously} love ruffles.

      Help me!

    • Petit Elefant :

      Bless Target! Love Target, and that dress is really cute….

  6. Jill K :

    I need ruffles to make me feel like a woman now that my hair looks like David Bowie’s.

    • Petit Elefant :

      Whatever, you’re foxy enough to pull off the short hair, no need to worry about looking like a man.

  7. xiaolinmama :

    Oh I love that top from Anthropologie! cute!

    • Petit Elefant :

      Isn’t it ridiculous? I can think of about five outfits right this second based on that top.

  8. Amy :

    I have a couple of ruffle pieces and I absolutely love them. I’m 38 and think the ruffles just make me feel feminine and maybe a little bit more youthful.

    • Allison :


      See? I completely agree. And there’s nothing wrong at all with wanting to feel more feminine and youthful.
