For Spring '13, ruffles are getting a major makeover. That is, they're veering from sweet territory and into sophisticated waters. And we couldn't be happier with this change because, let's face it, cutesy ruffles don't flatter anyone except our little sisters. But thanks to fashion houses like Chloé, Saint Laurent, and Balenciaga, we're swooning for ruffles, one tier at a time.

With this new love affair, we set off to find the most luxurious ruffled pieces, including these sexy ruffled Nicholas Kirkwood pumps. What's more, we also tracked down the most amazing ruffled tee, skirts, sweaters, jackets, and bags. Step inside to get your ruffle on with 14 of our favorite pieces.
