Two of the hottest trends for spring 2016 are ruffles and sparkle. They both graced the runway with an elegant upgrade. Girlie yet mature, these two can be incorporated into your style in mild or extreme ways. I once viewed ruffles as something only young girls could wear, but if you find your right look it can be high fashion.

Ruffles add a femininity and movement to your shape. The flow of the fabric is airy just like springtime. Whether you have a little flare on the shoulders or a ruffled skirt on a dress, this trend adds a romantic touch.

Sparkle can be interpreted in many ways. You can sport full on sequins and dress them up or down. If you want to try the trend, start by adding some bling to your accessories. Gemstones on sandals or an embellished handbag can pair with almost any outfit.
