Romantic Ruffles

You may not immediately think of the beach as a place for sweet and romantic swimwear options, but this year’s ruffled swimwear trend will have you desperate to get your hands on a suit in this girly style.

Ruffles can be placed anywhere and can be used to both conceal and accentuate various body parts: if you have a boyish figure, look for ruffles along the hips to create a curvier look. Ruffles all over the front of swimwear are great for hiding a tummy, while ruffles up top can help women with smaller chests to appear bustier.

Always a great designer option for stylish and fun garment choices, DKNY showed a number of swimwear styles featuring the ruffles trend at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. The first, a dark-colored one-piece with a bright pattern, was a strapless style, while another suit featured a one-shoulder strap and was in a beautiful shade of blue. Marysia and Suno were among other designers that featured ruffles in their swimwear collections.
