The Rise of Ruffles: Does This Hot Trend Give You a Frill?

If you liked the exaggerated-hip dresses we were abuzz about earlier this week, then you might be a fan of this equally bold look seen on Mischa Barton, Kelly Osbourne and Elizabeth Olsen. Feast your eyes, ladies: Frilly, ruffled necklines are the latest trend to hit Hollywood.
To start small, take a cue from Mischa in her cream high-necked dress with matching pleated sleeves. The look is fresh to try out in front of girl friends, but also has man repeller written all over it, so beware of breaking this style out in front of dudes.
For those who can handle a bit more flounce, bump up to Kelly’s white ruffle front. She clearly knows black-and-white is a go-to trend for spring.
And if you really want to flex your right to wear neck volume, go all out like Elizabeth. The youngest Olsen sister makes a major statement in a black embellished top and skirt from the Chloé Spring 2013 collection.
