Children, creepy dolls, anything associated with the word "cutesie" — that's what used to come to mind whenever we imagined ruffled clothes. But somewhere in the midst this season, our minds immediately changed: ruffles were everywhere, from the runway to the street, and they definitely weren't the kind we remember rocking as kids.
As with anything else voluminous, balance is key. If the volume is on the top, you’ll want to keep your bottom item simple and sleek. When the volume is on the bottom, you’ll want to do the balance with your top. Voluminous ruffles can be daunting and for some, “hard to wear” but when you style it just right, it’s far less intimidating and can result in a stellar outfit!
When I saw this skirt from Chicwish, I knew it belonged in my closet. It’s feminine, whimsical and unique. I absolutely love the ruffle detailing and the gorgeous blue and white striped pattern. It’s lightweight and perfect for a summer soiree. I love that the top has a v-neck and is simple to balance the skirt and I like to tuck it in to bring more emphasis to my waist and create a feminine shape. I accessorized with the cutest blue shoes.
You may be thinking…okay, but how can I wear this?
1.) Style it with an off the shoulder top and fun sunnies for a sweet Summer look.
2.) Style it with a button up shirt and a day clutch for wearable work look.
3.) Style it with a loose tee and cute sneakers for a casual, cool look.
4.) Style it with a fitted crop top and statement clutch for a dressed up look.
5.) Style both this top and skirt, but change out the accessories for a more customized look.
6.) Style this skirt through out the seasons: with blush pink for Spring and burgundy for Fall.
