Born a girly-girl, I have always had a taste for things big, poofy, and full of sass.

Thankfully more than just my hair and rear end fit this category.

This spring, the runways are being taken over by ruffles.

From big to small, we love them all. Shown here are styles sported by Gucci, Balenciaga, and one of my personal favorites: Chloé. These statement pieces brought waves of spring excitement throughout Paris Fashion Week.

Concertina pleats are this season’s most stunning trend, adorning the necks & cuffs of the hottest fashion icons this spring. But while undoubtably beautiful, these Chloé, Gucci and Givenchy pieces may be a bit much for casual everyday wear or to the office Monday morning.

Ruffles can be worn on all shapes and sizes. From maxis, shoes, and jackets, a touch of ruffles are an easy find for a quick addition to your closet this season.

Ultra feminine and sheek, these pieces are a great start to rocking this trend:

Free People Cascade Convertible Skirt ($88)

Urban Outfitters Pins and Needles Crepe Ruffle Front Dress (Was $69 now $29)

White House Black Market Ruffle-Front Cover-Up (Was $98 now $50)

Francesca’s Bellingham Chiffon Top ($34)
