Ruffles, Ruffles, Ruffles

Ruffles are turning out to be one of Spring 2017 hottest trends for regular and plus-sized clothes! Generally, plus-size clothing designers have tended to shy away from adding anything that will draw attention to the curves, such as big ruffles, but it looks like they have finally decided to toss that out the window and embrace and flaunt a plus-size woman’s curves!

While I will admit I’ve never been a big ruffles fan, after choosing the selections I picked out for today, I am dying to try out a few of these shirts and dresses!


1. This lovely lace and ruffle blush colored blouse is from Simply Be for only $57.50. It would look great with skinny jeans or leggings! It is unlined so would definitely need a cami underneath or, if you are feeling daring, a nude colored crop top or bandeau bra. Unfortunately, this blouse only goes up to a 22, but there is a similar blouse available in extended sizes at Ashley Stewart.

2. Perhaps you are just dipping your toe into the ruffle pond and aren’t ready to jump right in with giant ruffles. If this is you then this is the perfect dress for you! This dress from Simply Be ($79.99) is oh so adorable with tiny ruffle and lace accents on the sleeves and bodice. It also only goes up to a 22 so check out similar understated ruffle dresses in extended sizes at Torrid and Avenue.

3. This bold shirt from Simply Be ($32.99) features two of Spring 2017’s fashion trends: ruffles and cold shoulder! And it is available up to size 28 so you should definitely check it out!

4. Another understated ruffle dress from Simply Be ($74.99). I just love the ruffles and little polka-dots of this dress, and, with 3/4 sleeves, it’s perfect for all seasons! For Fall and Winter pair it with warm tights and ankle boots and for Spring and Summer pair with strappy sandals. Unfortunately, sizes 26 and 28 are sold out so for extended sizes check this lovely cold shoulder ruffle dresses from Target!

5. All the ruffles!! This is overstated ruffle blouse is available up to size 22 at Simply Be ($69.99. I just love these sleeves. It’s cute, flirty, and definitely a fashion statement. Paired with skinny jeans it would be perfect for a girls day out or date night! For extended sizes Simply Be has a similar ruffle sleeve blouse as does Torrid.

6. Last but definitely not least is this adorable ruffle Bardot swing top for $33.00 from Yours. I am in love with this top and it is definitely on my to-buy list! Pair it with skinny jeans, leggings, or capris for a fun, flirty outfit. It is available in extended sizes but if denim isn’t your thing check out similar blouses at Torrid and Yours.

Look for tomorrow’s post which will be another One Shirt – Day & Night set featuring the green cold shoulder ruffle top!
