Ruffles

The thought of wearing ruffles used to horrify me, bringing back memories of 1990’s pastel colored tiered ruffled dresses I was forced to wear for birthdays, picture day, and Eid. Ruffles have come along way since those days, however, and this sweater is a welcome new addition to my wardrobe – the ruffles are flirty and not overbearing. I love that it can be worn casual with jeans or dressed up with trousers or even a skirt. The style is trendy but at the same time very subtle – so it fits perfectly in my wear-for-all-seasons category in my wardrobe. It also satisfies my inner-most craving to be a total girly girl…

If there is one trend bandwagon this season that I’d recommend jumping on, its the ruffle.

Side note: If you are bigger on top and think this won’t work for you, try balancing out your silhouette with straight leg jeans like I’m doing, or even a wide leg or flare.  Or get something where the ruffles are lower on the top, like around the ribcage or waist. Trust me, you can definitely pull off this look!
