START

Flouncy, frilly ruffles may feel feminine, but the history behind the super-girly trimming is anything but. In fact, the origin of the ruffle began in Germany during the 15th century when soldiers would slash their sleeves, creating a ruffled effect, which would later come to symbolize their return from war.

Dramatic and theatrical, ruffles have bridged costume design and high fashion, making them one of the most historically rich trends of the summer.
