Let's Talk Trends: Ruffles







Shop My Look: 
Top: StyleKeepers | Jeans: Target | Heels: Madden Girl | Bag: Kate Spade

My friend, Candace, and I were talking about our fashion obsessions, of late, and she said hers is definitely ruffles. She looks across her closet and sees ruffles everywhere. My obsession, lately, has been more with bows, but ruffles take a close second. They're both very feminine, and very "me".  So, since I wanted to start a series where I talk about trends, I thought I'd cover the topic of ruffles, today. I ordered this top, a few weeks ago, and when it came in, I was in love! It's more beautiful than I ever expected, from the picture on the website. So, needless to say, I was like "Yes! Ruffles! I'm a fan." 
The trick, for me, with ruffles, is that I'm kind of a small frame. Ruffles can overwhelm me and make me look like I'm swimming in a tablecloth, instead of wearing a pretty top. Pairing them with a more streamlined skirt or pants is always a good option. And, then, of course, sometimes, you realize that something might be a bit "much", a bit too avant-garde for everyday life, but you're going to wear it anyway! (This is usually me. haha! Enter, Fashion Blogging.)
Here are some other, beautiful ruffle pieces for you to shop! They're all so amazingly pretty, and I hope they leave you inspired to try the ruffle trend. 
Thanks for reading!

  24. Hello Jessica!
    Many people think that I wear clothing just for photography, but no, I use everything, of course I may not use it in such a sophisticated way but in a more practical way for day to day life. I think ruffles are not too much, I love the trend, and this top is magnificent !!!
