The first thing that comes to mind when you think of how to wear ruffles is flamenco or kitschy, overly girly, and old-fashioned dresses and lace blouses. However, this element has been reinterpreted during the past seasons by designers such as Nicolas Ghesquière, J.W. Anderson, and Rosie Assoulin and integrated in clothing in a clean and modern way. By pairing a ruffled piece with a simple, yet sexy minimalist open top blouse and barely there sandals, you make the structured and dramatic detail be the focal point. So sayonara to ruffles as the linchpin of overly femenine style and hello to a great statement piece.


Das erste, woran man denkt, wenn man an Rüschen denkt, ist Flamenco oder kitschige Kleider und Blusen. Das Element wurde jedoch in den letzten Saisonen von einigen Designern neu interpretiert, wie z.B. Nicolas Ghesquière, J.W. Anderson, und Rosie Assoulin. Die neuen Rüschen werden in modernen und cleanen Designs integriert. Am Besten trägt man Kleidungsstücke mit Rüschen zu anderen, die minimalistisch und mit klaren Linien sind, um zu vermeiden, zu girly auszusehen. In diesem Fall habe ich diese Rüschenhosen mit einem minimalistischen Top mit offenem Rücken und filigranen Sandalen kombiniert. Das erlaubt den Rüschendetails, das Zentrum der Aufmerksamkeit zu sein. Deshalb können wir heutzutage ‘sayonara’ zum Rüschen als dem Darsteller von kitschigem, übermäßig weiblichen Stil, sagen, da sie dagegen ein tolles Statement-Piece sein können.
