Dress season is upon us, and if there’s one trend we’ve noticed fashion girls on the ‘gram
have been falling head over heels for, it has to be shirred dresses. In case you’re not aware, shirring refers to an embroidery technique that gathers fabric with an elastic thread, creating a stretchy garment.
It had its heyday back in the ‘90s when the crinkly material took over everything from babydoll dresses to crop tops, but they’re making a comeback this season. No surprise, given how flattering they can be, fitting snugly at the waist and expanding over one’s assets. Put in much simpler terms, they’re basically a sweeter looking version of bodycon clothing, except much more comfortable and wearable.
They also come with no lack of variety, from summery sundresses to more polished midi styles, which means they’re bound to find their way into your outfit whether you have a beach day, Sunday brunch or fancy evening in mind. Find styling inspiration from the pros themselves above.
