RUFFLES & A SLIP DRESS – HOW TO WEAR TWO TRENDS IN ONE OUTFIT

how fashion blogger wear ruffles

Gone are the days when ruffles were reserved for the younger ones. From collars to hemlines and everywhere else, ruffles are back and have easily warmed their way back into our hearts and our wardrobes along side frills and structured flounces.

Ruffles permeate a feminine aura but also add a sense of drama and makes for the perfect outfit detail.

The trick to pulling this off and still maintaining your adult status: Make the ruffle the center of your outfit, but make sure its just the right amount of drama you need.

Can i quickly tell you about how I’ve recently been digging this no-eye shadow makeup look (I’m really not wearing any eye shadow) and just focusing on achieving a clean beat with a popping lip. What do you guys think? Love the look?

I was leisurely walking around the H&M store, feeding my eyes when i saw this ruffle dress. The whole time in the changing room i was just like ‘Yasss’. Not too much and not too little, just the right amount of ruffle and wide flounce that i needed. I’m never really one to buy straight cut dresses but i was sold on this one.

Instead of styling it like they did on their website (which is also the same way I’ve seen a couple of people wear such dresses)with denim pants and a cami, I decided to wear my slip dress(another trend I’m in love with) underneath it. And that’s how you wear two trends in one outfit!

This just seem like the perfect outfit to wear to all those eat-all-you-can events because nobody is going to be noticing your bulging tummy after you’re done indulging yourself and hey, you’ll still be looking takeaway! LOL

Looking forward to styling it in more ways on the blog!

    Can I just christen it ‘LBD?’ It’s so flimsy and pretty. It gives you the right fit! I can’t remember the last time I applied eyeshadow. Welcome to the land of #Noeyeshadow. Lol

    Love the outfit, just the right amount of ruffles and slip, lol. The no-eyeshadow look has been my go to look for almost 6 years. You look great without eye shadow, I doubt you’ll miss it.

    Girl this outfit is perfect. I love the ruffles and the slip dress inside just creates a perfect look. I love it and that hint of red with the heels.
