Ruching — aka gathered fabric for texture — was big in the '80s, and guess what, it's back!
So we brought in body positivity advocate and original plus-size model Emme to show us how to wear one of Pinterest's latest fashion trends — whether you're a size 2, 12 or 22.
Want to accentuate your long waistline? This flirty bodycon look on dancer Davanna has subtle ruching that pushes the waist down.
"It's very different to have a top ruching in this manner," Emme says.
We're into it!
Or you might relate to Jennifer, who says she usually dresses in more "boxy" attire. Well, that's where ruching comes in, because it can help highlight your waistline.
"No boxy things with this beautiful waistline," Emme says. "Go in, draw the attention."
And this beautiful dress does just that, with the ruching right at the smallest part of her waist.
To top it all off, this versatile look is great for work or play!
Jennifer, who would never usually buy a dress, is sold.
"By trying it on, I feel more confident," Jennifer says. "I could buy a dress now!"
And so can you! You can buy this dress here.
This ruched metallic dress on Constance is a showstopper, are we right?
"The ruching goes up into the waist area," Emme explains "It breaks the upper body [from] the lower body."
And with a stand-out dress like this, Emme suggests going subtle with accessories.
