February 16th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Ways to Flaunt Ruffles Like a Fashion Blogger

One trend that is making a dramatic comeback is the ruffle. Small or large, subtle or voluminous—there is a ruffled style to satisfy anyone’s fashion palate! Let it serve as the focal point to your outfit or leave it as an understated feminine touch. When it comes to ruffles, we’re happy to say that this trend isn’t bouncing anytime soon.

Check out how these fashion-forward bloggers are flaunting their frills:

ruffles

Make the best of two trends by opting for a sheer blouse with ruffles. If you want to achieve a more subdued look, try styling the ruffled number underneath a pair of structured blue overalls. The ruffles add dimension to your outfit without being distracting.

P2 - Margo and Me

Go all in on the romantic look with a dress that incorporates both ruffles and lace. It’s easier than ever to find modern ways to wear both trends!

P3 - Pernille Teisbaek

While some ruffled dresses can look a bit shapeless on the body, a cinched-in piece like this one is eye-catching and accentuates the waist.

P4 - Soraya Bakhtiar

Pants with a small ruffled flare at the end are a subtle way to incorporate the trend into your outfit. They can instantly elevate even the most casual outfits.

P5 - The Nomis Niche

As far as we’re concerned, there’s nothing more trendy right now than statement sleeves. Consider taking a fashion tip from The Nomis Niche by tucking a bouncy blouse into a fitted mini skirt.

P6 - This Time Tomorrow

This one-shouldered wavy blouse proves that there is no such thing as too many ruffles! Wear this light and airy style with a simple pair of denim jeans any time of the week.

February 7th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile 4 Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas for However You’re Celebrating

We are a week away from Valentine’s Day, or as some may know it, “Singles Awareness Day”. Or even just Tuesday! No matter how you view the day—whether you love it, loathe it, or choose to ignore it—take this opportunity to dress up, for a date or for yourself!

We don’t ever need an excuse to dress up, but holidays give us a reason to have just a little extra fun putting together a look for the day. Check out the outfit inspiration I’ve put together below. Don’t worry: no cliché pink and red looks here!

 

Day Date

valetine's day

Day dates are fun, relaxed, and so much more versatile than night dates. Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday this year, so this look may be for those who don’t work traditional hours or decide to celebrate on the weekend (or for those with more relaxed offices!). Find a flirty dress, throw on your favorite leather jacket, and slip on some flats so you can be prepared for anything.

 

Night Out

NightOut

For the most common Valentine’s Day ritual—a night out with your beau—have some fun with your look and dress up a bit more than you usually would for a date night. I love this jumpsuit and choker look for a night out!

 

Galentine’s Day

Paris Fashionweek SS2017

Who says you have to be in a relationship to be surrounded by love? Head out on the town with the true loves of your life: your girlfriends! A night out (or in) with your besties should be fun and festive! For this laughter-filled night, take chances and go for your funkiest look!

 

Casual Night In

NightIN

Whether with a date, your bestie, or yourself, we all need a night in every once in a while. Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to treat yourself to a little food, wine, and Netflix binging. This is where your comfy and casual clothes shine!
