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.

Culottes are great year-round, but this spring they’ll be back in the spotlight due to their versatility.

April 12th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Top Seven Spring Wardrobe Essentials

Spring is here, which means unpredictable and temperamental weather. It’s not uncommon for it to be raining and chilly in the morning, sunny and warm by mid-afternoon, and then frigidly cold by nighttime. To prepare for the inconsistent weather, start with your wardrobe! Check out the round-up below of my top seven spring wardrobe essentials to help you survive this temperamental season.

1. Long, Lightweight Coatspring wardrobeA lightweight trench coat or duster is timeless and versatile. Layer one over your outfit during chilly spring mornings and evenings.

2. Midi CutsmidiDresses and skirts in midi cuts will keep you covered but cool—not to mention super chic.

3. Cropped TrouserstrousersIf it’s still too chilly for skirts and dresses, go for a pair of cropped trousers that can be paired with flats, boots, or heels for a classic, clean look.

4. Chambray Shirtspring wardrobeWill these ever go out of style? We think not. Timeless, chic, and versatile, a chambray shirt is the perfect weight and layering piece for spring.

5. Open ShoesopenThe early days of spring don’t call for sandals just yet, but wearing open toe, open back, or cutout shoes gives you a taste of that freedom.

6. Perfect SunniessunniesThe sun is finally shining, and what better way to accessorize than with a perfect pair of sunnies?

7. Silk Scarf
scarfIt’s time to put away the chunky knit scarves for something a bit more breathable. A silk scarf is the perfect accessory to replace a necklace or add into your hair for a fun pop of color.

The best part is that all these essentials will work with your existing wardrobe, as well as mixed and matched with each other. What is your favorite spring wardrobe essential?
