The ruffle saree trend has been here for quite sometime and is definitely here to stay this 2018. From ruffled saree borders to pallus to blouse sleeves, a hint of this vintage trend is sure to add a statement touch to your sarees.

However, you can contrast with solid colors and minimal prints on ruffled sarees.
