Ruff stuff - ruffle mania spring 2017

Helsinki, -2 degrees

 If feathers don't ruffle, nothing flies.

It started with pemplum dresses & tops back in 2014, but only truly blossomed this spring - my ruffle mania that is! Fortunately, as I mentioned in August in my earlier blog post, ruffles can now be found on everything - from full skirts to crop tops. Come colder days, ruffles fuse structured high-fashion with wearability. Minimalism kicks back by adding a subtle sense of femininity with ruffles and volume. There are oversized ruffles, fit-and-flare ruffle dresses and tiered ruffles. My personal favorites are the ruffle dresses.

Se alkoi jo vuonna 2014 pemplum -mekoista ja -topeista, mutta puhkesi kunnolla kukkaan vasta tänä keväänä - rakkauteni röyhelöihin siis! Kuten mainitsin jo elokuussa aikaisemmassa blogikirjoituksessani, niin veistokselliset röyhelöt saavat jatkoa. Löydät röyhelöitä muun muassa hameissa, mekoissa ja topeissa. Miten romanttista! Itse pidän eniten röyhelömekoista.

This spring I've picked up three lovely ruffle dresses from Asos: in Pale Dogwood, Island Paradise and Kale. You might remember these colors from my earlier blog post about Pantone's spring colors 2017. Two of them have already seen the streets of Helsinki, and one is still waiting for its turn.

Tänä keväänä olen hankkinut kolme röyhelömekkoa Asokselta. Sävyt ovat samat kuin aikaisemmassa blogikirjoituksessa mainitut Pantonen kevätvärisävyt: vaaleanpunainen Pale Dogwood (kalpea kanukka), vaaleansininen Island Paradise (saariparatiisi) ja vihreä Kale (lehtikaali). Kaksi mekkoa ovat jo päässeet piristämään Helsingin katukuvaa, mutta yksi mekko odottaa vielä vuoroaan.


I hope to see ruffles and/or Pantone's spring colors also at the Oscars tonight! What are your favorite colors for the upcoming spring season?

Toivon näkeväni röyhelöitä ja/tai Pantonen kevätvärisävyjä myös Oscar-gaalassa tänä yönä! Mitkä ovat suosikkivärisi tulevana keväänä?
