Ruffles are Here to Stay

AW 17

With fashion month underway, I feel much more involved in what trends are currently poppin’ and what seems to have been left behind for good. Every year there are some trends that feel like a natural extension of my personal style, and I’m happy to report that ruffle details are here to stay for the upcoming autumn/winter season! Chloé, Miu Miu, and Stella McCartney are just a few of the designer houses that have embraced another round of effortless frills, adorning every inch imaginable of your standard blouses and skirts. This romantic top from Zara is the newest addition to my collection of high-neck tops and performs wonderfully as a transition piece into the autumn months. Cream shades are a universal, year-round go-to that can adapt to the warm sunshine or cool-tone holiday outfits, so let’s hope you still have a few of your ruffle tops laying around to style up for another season of fearless femininity!

    Honest question here: how do you fit them under a jacket?! I love the ruffles, but I’m worried it’s all messed up once I actually have to put on something to keep the cold out. How do you do it?

      With a top like I am wearing now, it is very fluid so the fabric doesn’t wrinkle. Perhaps that would be a good option for you? 🙂
