These stiff, austere waves are more modern than the floppier furls of past seasons, making this feminine detail feel new again. HOW TO WEAR ITRuffles act as their own accessory, so there's no need to trot out your jewels. If they're snaking around your neck or cascading down your shoulder, pull your hair back in a sleek style so it doesn't interfere. These oversize undulations go nicely with pumps or sandals in a complementary—yet not matching-color.
