Ruffles are super feminine and flirty on their own, so in order to avoid going girly-girl, you’ll want to strike a balance with the rest of your outfit. An easy trick is to wear a ruffled top with a pair of distressed jeans and some flats or sneakers.
2. Go Easy on the Accessories
A ruffled dress is about as feminine as you can get. In order for your gorgeous dress to get the attention it deserves, go light on the accessories. Choose one or two statement pieces, like a simple choker and a pair of no fuss earrings.
3. Go for the Unexpected
Ruffles don’t have to be just for dresses or blouses. Go for something different, like a unique tunic or a pair of pants. An important tip — keep the rest of your of outfit neutral so it looks more chic.
4. Don’t Forget to be Playful
Probably one of the most important things to remember with ruffles is keeping it fun! Ruffles are super flirty and add a little pep to any outfit. Consider pairing a ruffled blouse with a pair of adorable overalls, or adding a graphic sweatshirt to your ruffled skirt.
5. Keep it Simple
If you’re questioning your ruffled look, just keep it simple. You don’t have to go big or dramatic with your frills. A subtle ruffled blouse with a pair of jeans or trousers is always an awesome look.
