Each year and each season, one element of design is constantly surfacing in trends and soon, it becomes the “in” thing. Trends in the Pakistani fashion world last year were dominated by shortening of the hem (shirt length/daaman) along with variation in lowers, ranging from bell-bottoms, culottes and all sorts of flares.
2017 and this season shifts all focus on sleeves. Be it eastern or western wear, sleeves are being stylized in multiple ways. Amongst these styles, ruffles are all the rage! A ruffle, frill, or furbelow is a strip of fabric, lace or ribbon tightly gathered or pleated, sitched to a garment. Be it Eastern or Western wear, ruffles are a fun, flowy and feminine design element for summer outfits.
Ruffles are enjoying all the fashion spotlight and so should you! Whether you want to share some inspo with your tailor or pick something off the racks, here’s a list of ruffled sleeves you must sport this summer:
