The Ruffle Cocktail Dress

Just because it's a cocktail dress exploring one of Fall's biggest trends, doesn't mean it has to be boring or expected--these five dresses, each with their own unique take on the ruffle trend, would suit a variety of personalities and aesthetics. The Clu dress, for example, shows how ruffles don't have to be ultra-feminine while the Marc by Marc Jacobs dress shows how they don't have to look like they're trying so hard. The three above show ladylike, printed, and sophisticated instances (from left to right) and they're all, in fact, quite different as a result. To be trendy and still have style, it's essential to stay true to your own preferences. Thankfully, when it comes to this trend, contemporary designers gave us plenty of options.
