    No longer reserved for fourth-graders or ladies who lunch, ruffles are now anything but frilly, holding strong as the detail among the cool-girl set this season. And, while this girly accent has kept somewhat of a low profile since the ‘80s, the new ruffle is more sculptural than flouncy and feels impressively grown up. And, it's totally begging for a primo spot in our sartorial arsenal as we get ready for the office or an evening out. (Hint: Saturday night is just about here.)

    Try a floor-length skirt (like the style pictured) with a blazer for work and then a moto jacket for after-hours drinks; opt for a pretty, tiered dress for your next weekend wedding; or pick a flirty blouse to just throw on and go for any occasion. Whatever you're feeling, we've got 15 gorg finds ahead that won't ruffle any shopping feathers — in a bad way, that is.
