Ready to meet the dress trend that's about to take over your life (in a good way, of course)? We'd like to introduce you to the most popular dress trend of 2018: ruching. Designers clearly took a strong liking to this particular dress detail, sending out a wide variety of frocks adorned with the striking feature. When Miu Miu, Gucci, and Saint Laurent (just to name a few) are all on the same page, that's probably a page we want to be reading too.
So why is this fall dress trend about to transform your outfit rotation for days to come? Because the style looks so good on multiple body types, can easily be dressed up or down, and will make you look like you know a thing or two about fashion. Basically, it's a lot of bang for your buck. The ruching also adds a fun texture to an otherwise plain dress, not to mention the gathering always hits at the right place on your body, hugging you where you want to be hugged so you can feel like your most confident self. A dress that can do all that at once? Yeah, we thought you'd like it.
