Spring Trend: Ruffles

Wearing Ruffles Without Looking Like Bozo the Clown

Spring Trend Alert: Ruffles are in!  These feminine frills are all over the runway, as seen in the Marc Jacobs, Chanel Couture, and Giambatista Valli Couture Spring lines (below).  However, wearing ruffles can be a difficult task.  The last thing you want to resemble is Bozo the Clown.  When wearing ruffles, you either need to make a statement with large ruffles, or go for a more subtle, delicate look with smaller ones.

In all honesty, I’m more comfortable wearing sleek looks than the “girly” vibe .  But I like to push the limits with my style and try new things!  So, venturing outside my comfort zone, I started shopping around to attempt the style.  Luckily, I was drawn to the “Without a Square in the World” gingham set by Nasty Gal.

I love the gentle ruffles on the top and bottom of this CROP TOP because since the tousles aren’t overbearing.  Plus, you can’t go wrong with an off-the-shoulder fit.  It allows your neck and collarbone to be visible which elongates your overall appearance.  Also, I will always and forever be a fan of a high-waisted bottom, which gives a lengthening effect, as seen on this SKIRT.  It shows just a little leg, which is perfect for the summer months.  Ladies, this set is currently on SALE too!

To round out the outfit, I chose some natural toned pieces, starting with this incredible rattan circle bag!  The natural weave of the bag is a perfect accent, especially as the weather gets warmer.  You can snag this one on Amazon.

MVMT has been a well known mens watch brand for years. At last, they now have MVMT for Her!!  I got The Lexington watch with the rose gold metal strap and a white face.  I’m literally living my best Springtime life with this watch.  It’s adjustable (thank God, because I have infant wrists) and feels like a lux jewelry piece!  You have to check out their sunnies too!

To finalize the outfit, I paired my MVMT watch with the Ronaldo Power of Prayer bracelet.  There are seven orbs in the center to remind you to pray every day!

The whole ensemble is complete with these Studded wrap booties, which highlights the white color within the outfit.

I’m mixing a little gingham country style, a city point of view, and a confident on-trend ruffle look.  What more could a Philly girl ask for?
