I've never really considered myself a girlie-girl, but something about this season's ruffles have really been floatin' my boat. Of course, ruffles can tread a fine line between sweet and... well, a little too frou-frou. So if you're not about to go the overly-cutesie route, consider wearing your ruffles not on your sleeve or your neckline, but your handbag! What's great about ruffled bags is that they let you go as frilly as you want without making you look costume-y, or just plain ridiculous. Go for something over-sized in a neutral shade like this romantic Be & D Ruffled Tote, or if you prefer something a little more subtle, this BCBG Ruffled Clutch has tiered ruffles that aren't quite so voluminous.

I have to say, ever since the asymmetrical trend once again reemerged last year, I keep thinking that it's only a matter of time before fashionistas change their minds and send it back to the reject pile of failed re-tried fads. But so far the whole one-shoulder look has only seemed to grow in popularity with the passing seasons... and now to keep things fresh, the trend is getting fancified with ruffles. Yup, one-shoulder ruffles. Sounds like a weird combination, but I gotta admit, the result is totally hot for spring and summer! After all, let's face it --as much as I was a skeptic, it's pretty genius because it combines three of the hottest trends: ruffles, asymmetry, and exaggerated shoulders. Put a trendy spin on your basic LBD with this silk version by Susana Monaco, or keep things fun and flirty for day with a one-shoulder ruffled romper! If you're game to try out this trend-on-trend-on-trend combo look, check out the slideshow for my favorite one-shoulder ruffled pieces!
