A timeless trend that allows all women to join it, following the maxim that “is not what, but how.” Because all women have different curves, proportions and sizes, there is a formula to show them in small doses or as absolute protagonists, without fear. Tops, shirts, blouses, shorts, pants, skirts, swimwear and even accessories such as sandals and bags are equipped with mini or maxi ruffles as a detail to be highlighted.

  1. TRIANGULAR OR PEAR SILHOUETTE Pear-shaped women have wide hips in relation to the trunk. Normally the back is narrow and the bust small, so the ruffles allow to bring more volume to the top of the body. Include them in the shoulder area, or at the height of the bust to compensate the volume of your hips.

  1. RECTANGULAR SILHOUETTE Characterized by having shoulders aligned with hips and little waist, ruffles will give you the curves that your figure needs. Bodies of this type, the best considered, allow you to include ruffles in the bust area and/or hips, rounding your silhouette and making it less angular. Try to always emphasize the waist.

  1. OVAL OR APPLE SILHOUETTE A figure distinguished by holding generous curves, in which the volume is centered in the abdominal area. Therefore, the ideal is to opt for subtle and/or minimalist ruffles, trying as much as possible not to add more volume to our figure. The light ruffles with drop arranged diagonally or vertically are perfect.
