With the onset of Spring, I am feeling like embracing my femininity. This season I am taking a queue from my pint-sized fashionistas. My girls (like most girls) are into ruffles.
Ok.. maybe not quite THESE ruffles, but I couldn't resist putting these little baby butts in this post.
Don't you want to just take a bite???
J. Crew brought ruffles back into the mainstream in 2008, and they seem to be holding strong. I'm okay with that.
You can see them everywhere from fashion to housewares.
Of course you run the risk of being overly-ruffled. I love the look of pairing a delicate ruffle with something a little more masculine. Like a linen ruffled blouse with a military coat. Or a layered ruffled skirt (like the DVF one below) with a white boatneck tee and a chunky brown leather belt.
Whatever your flavor of ruffles, try some on this season- you'll be happy you did. Here are some ruffled pieces that I am loving for Spring:
1. Marni Ruffled Jacket- $530.25
2. Ruffled Strapless Swimsuit- $345
3. Gryphon Top- $311
4. Lanvin Silk Dress- $4,960
5. Catrine Scarf- $51
6. Horn Ruffle Bracelet- $160
7. Paloma Platform Pumps- $670
8. DVF Isle Print Ruffle Skirt- $467
9. Ruffle Frame Clutch- $68
And if your feeling frisky, you CAN ruffle your butt. However, I am quite certain that mine would not look anything like this...
