A deconstructed spin on the ruffled dress, the choppy ruffle is a little less dainty and a lot more rock n' roll. It's flatter in shape, and a bit edgier than its frilly counterpart. Zoe Saldana recently attended an event decked out in a midnight blue dress with choppy tiers and chic mesh inserts. She kept her accessories simple, and streamlined the look with a classic pair of Brian Atwood pumps. Try this updated twist yourself by shopping the pieces below.
Most of you didn't approve of Maria Sharapova's one-sleeve Lanvin dress, but I think you'll like this mandarin-tiered Stella McCartney number she wore to a recent event. It reveals her gorgeous legs but in a tasteful manner. I like how instead of wearing peep-toe pumps, like many celebs do on the red carpet, she chose unexpected black patent oxford pumps. A textured minaudiere and gold jewels finish off the look perfectly.
It's been while since I featured Fab favorite Diane, so I needed my fix — you don't mind do you?
At the Tod's Fall shopping party in the Hamptons, Diane looked Summer stylish in a Derek Lam black tiered dress, a carefree headband, and a Tod's python clutch. Iced tea in hand, Diane looked the best at the event, but you don't even want to know how much her Lam dress was. And no need, I found a cheaper alternative with just the same amount of hippie chic and some equally fun accessories. We love you Diane!
Trend Alert: Tiered Floral Miniskirts Last week we reported on Jaime Winstone's Bungalow 8 outfit, which included a tiered floral skirt from the latest Luella collection (pictured). The High Street have quickly taken on the trend for Spring providing those who can't stretch to a Luella original (myself included) with a good range of options!
Ruffle me this, ruffle me that. You all went gaga over the frills of Spring last week so I thought we could fast forward this trend. Lately, I've been swayed by tiered ruffles. The master of ruffles, Valentino, shows how it's done (pictured). Who can forget Sarah Michelle Gellar's bubbly champagne look in vintage Chloe? Ruffle in the Winter, ruffle in the Summer, ruffle me all over.
