2020 Ruffle Trend

These are not your little girl’s ruffles. My favorite socks growing up had the white lace ruffles around the edging. My mom taught me to fold them down correctly. They looked adorable with my black patent leather Mary Jane’s on Sunday mornings. When I was away from her, I would unfold them to climb up my scrawny little legs. I thought they made me look older this way (even though no one else was wearing socks like this). Those eight-year-old toothpicks for legs still had visible peach fuzz growing on them. I also tried wearing my favorite ruffled socks with my coveted Dr. Scholl’s sandals. Disaster — do not try this at home. You will slip out of those sandals with socks quicker than you can say, ‘ice cream truck.’

When I think of ruffles, I assume tiny, frilly, feminine ruffles. I think back to my beloved childhood ruffle socks. Yet, today’s 2020 ruffle trend is big, bold, and statement-making. And I am loving it. Tiered dresses and skirts from 2020 Spring Fashion Trends really put ruffles into the forefront, and now there is no turning back for the next few seasons.
