We are always on the lookout for the next big trend and where better to find what street style stars are currently loving than on our Instagram timelines! The ruching trend, which was huge in ’80s fashion, returned to the runways during Spring/Summer 2019 shows defining every look from skirts to sleeves and dresses. The gathered design inherent to these styles has indeed made a quick comeback to street style in many forms but one automatically stands out.

Taking lead this season, we’ve spotted some of our favourite influencers ditching the traditional bodycon dresses for ruched nude beige dresses which have an uber-flattering upgrade that immediately accentuates curves and magically conceals everything else.

If you’re as excited as we are to take on the trend this season, keep scrolling to see how to style the ruched bodycon dress now.
