The Pretty Trend That Will Make Your Outfits Look Seriously Expensive



While I study trends in-depth for a living, some styles only really hit me once I see them in full force at all my favorite stores. Case in point? This summer’s pretty ruching and draping trend. It was all over the spring/summer runways and now has me in a tizzy after I saw so many chic iterations on the market this season. Of course, I’ve been bookmarking only the prettiest pieces to share with you, our dear readers.

The textured detail makes an outfit look luxe and expensive, but the best part is that you don’t need to spend a fortune to lean into the trend. Below, I’m sharing 35 of my favorite ruched finds for every budget. These will have everyone saying, “Wow, great outfit!” Trust me.

I love that you can wear this with or without straps.

From meetings to margaritas in style.

H&M has plenty of gorgeous ruched and draped pieces right now.

This dusty blue hue hits my eye just right.

Love those thin spaghetti straps.

Simply add a pair of tailored white linen pants for a day-to-night look.

Wear with flats and heels alike.

The hard part is choosing what color to get this in.
