I am a minimalist by nature, so when the ruffle trend hit this season while I was secretly shuddering on the inside, there was something alluring about these overly ornate embellishments that called to me like a siren song. You can imagine my delight when I slipped on my first multi-tiered garment and was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to step out of my comfort zone and into pieces that looked like they belonged on the top of a wedding cake.
While they look extremely high-maintenance, ruffles are actually rather low key. You simply need to slip them on and BOOM!!! You’re done. Since there is so much going on with a ruffle embellishment, it is pretty much the only piece you need to make a statement when you are putting a look together.
I got this dusty rose ruffle top from Shein.com for $21.00 and immediately started wearing it, it is such a fun alternative to the black and white pieces already in my closet! I don’t really wear to much ‘girly’ stuff so another surprising thing was how me I felt in it. While I paired it with my fave ripped black skinny jeans for this look, it will look just as great in an office setting tucked into a pencil skirt or casually thrown over denim cutoffs as well.
