All about flounces and ruffles – sophisticated layers of fabrics on our bodies.
Flounces have been around in the textile industry for a couple of centuries now and although ruffles and flounces are often considered to be the same, there are however some differences. A flounce is a textile embellishment that is sewn onto a finished piece of clothing rather extensively, whereas ruffles are mostly attached much more “ruffled” and hence they look more playful. In contrast to dresses with ruffles, flounce dresses
are less the symbols for romance or frumpy pomp. Flounces often give the certain “je ne sais quoi”
to plain and single-coloured dresses
and they are highly modern. In the 1920’s, the days of the swinging jazz clubs, flounces were a big thing in the world of fashion for the first time. Women became more and more confident, constricting corsages had been taken off and the victory march of straight-cut dresses, flowing around the figure, was about to begin. In those days, Charleston dresses and Marlene trousers were steady companions of every fashion-conscious woman. Multi-rowed flounces or fringe embellishments were important parts of many of the common party dresses; this was what made the swaying effect possible when the ladies started to dance.
Luxurious embellishments on your dress – flounces are all the rage.
These days, you can find flounce dresses in all different shapes and colours in the boutiques of this world. The typical flounce dress is a knee-length classic-cut shift dress with embellishments. But there are also more extravagant gowns with flounces to be seen on red carpets again again: luxurious flounces with abstract flower shapes also play an important role, as well as spectacular XXL-full-body flounces, definitely only an option for courageous women with the right figure. But one thing’s for sure: wearing a flounce dress, every woman truly shines with confident femininity – no matter if on a normal day in the office or at a fancy dinner.
