I love ruffles! After buying three dresses and five button-up ruffle shirts, I figured it was time to share my love of ruffles. Ruffles are so sexy-- they remind me of those hot Dancing With the Stars ladies. How could you go wrong looking like any of those ladies? Okay, so their bodies are absolutely drop-dead gorgeous, but if I can look slightly closer to any of those ladies, I’ll do it. So, ruffles are my answer.

Of course, there are many different kinds of ruffles. I think some shirts, dresses, and skirts can have the wrong kind of ruffle. The kind that can make one’s body look short and stocky. But, that’s why I have picked some great finds! I think ruffles started off as being sophisticated, but have turned into sexy fashion phenomenon.

I found a great Versace dress that puts the R in ruffle. This dress is unique enough to get people talking. The cut is very flattering and with the tight fit around the hips and legs, I would recommend this to any beauty who is confident and proud to show off her figure. This dress is too hot to walk around in with insecurities. With this beautiful lavender color, just add some nice stilettos and you have got the perfect night out dress.

A dress I think is well worth snagging for my work wardrobe is this stunningly simple, nice and crisp Ralph Lauren shirt dress. This dress is business women sexy and will have everyone sold during a work presentation. Not only is it professional, but fashionable as well. Wearing a nice pair of Stuart Weitzman pointy shoes with this dress and topping the ensemble off with a pair of pearl earrings-- priceless.

Found on is this adorably flirty, feminine white ruffle shirt from Juicy Couture. This Soft Woven Ruffle Top is great for dressing down or up and I love the white-on-white polka dots. The ruffles are different than most ruffled shirt in the stores. The best part is that you can get a 15% Off Coupon Code [COUTURE15] from the site to go towards any purchase, why not this hot ruffle shirt?

There you have it, a wonderful selection of the right kind of ruffled clothing to flaunt.
