Ruffles and Frills, Meet the Flounce

Posted by Bikini Owner in bikini, detail, feminine, flounce, frills, one piece, ruffles, swimsuit, swimwear

After months of being bundled up in anything but form-flattering clothing, what are we most excited for? Flattering feminine details like ruffles and frills — but this spring season, we're seeing a major refresh in how it's done. Introducing the flounce — the super-loose overlay on tube tops and off-the-shoulders. Shop below for the springtime-ready shape that's restoring classic styles.


Tube tops? Consider them refreshed. Here, the flounce adds a flirty detail — not to mention, the ruffle lends shape and volume to smaller-busted babes.

Ultimate fans of the flounce will love this top — the two separate overlays sewn on to the top, along with the vibrant butterfly and palm print, add an energetic quality.

For a more grown-up version, go for a one-piece in a sophisticated hue, like eggplant. The low back and deep-v neckline also do their part to make this suit not-so-innocent.

On the other hand, the flounce can give an almost-too-mature suit a more youthful appearance. Straps, tied in bows at the shoulders, work the same way.

Curvy ladies, if you're not too keen on baring your legs, the trend is perfect for you — it'll bring drama and extra attention to the upper half of your body.

Printed flounce tops are practically made to wear as crop tops — we suggest pairing this one with denim cutoffs and wedge espadrilles for the spring.
