Get the Look: Spring 2016 Ruffles Edition

Spring is finally in full swing, dear readers! As I type, it’s a breezy 76ºF in these parts and I’m loving every bit of it. By now, I’m sure you’ve been checking out the latest trends in Spring 2016 fashion and have started piecing together your wardrobe staples. One of the sweetest trends this year is ruffles. No, not the potato chips and also not exactly the ruffles you’ve seen toddlers wearing. No, these ruffles are a little more sophisticated than that.  Check out some of the styles shown at Spring ’16 fashion weeks and our picks to get those looks!
