Omiru Poll Results: Ruffles are In!

Omiru Poll Result: Ruffles are In

Isaac Mizrahi Taffeta Ruffle Party DressWe asked: Are Ruffles In or Out?

You said:  Ruffles are In.  A 59% majority voted this feminine trend In.

Omiru’s take: We’re with you on ruffles–they’re a nice feminine counterpart to the menswear as womenswear trend.  And for a decorative trend, they’re rather functional.  You can soften up a work shirt with a row or two of ruffles.  And they’re great for adding volume to a flat chest.  Plus, they can turn an ordinary dress into something dramatic.

Style tip?  Match the size of the ruffle to your proportions.  If you’re petite, choose smaller ruffles.

Next Question:
We’re conflicted about suspenders as a fashion trend.  But what do you
think?   Tell us, are Suspenders In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote

    Can’t beat the price of that dress! It’s a great way to enjoy a trend without investing a fortune in something that could look dated in a short time. But then again, you never know….even Seinfeld’s puffy shirt (almost) looks cool today!

    Haha….almost :)

    We were conflicted about which picture to show for ruffles. The Issac Mizrahi dress isn’t particularly functional–it’s a dramatic dress that’s fitting more on the runway. But–you can’t beat the price!
