WHAT I WORE – RUFFLES

You all know that I love a good statement, feminine garment – especially when it’s one that I can wear throughout the cooler weather – aka, when it has long sleeves!

Ruffles can be hard to pull off. Associated with being ‘girly’ and super feminine, they provide a statement to any look. What I love about wearing ruffled pieces is that they can also add texture and flair to an outfit as well.

I have always been interested in wearing overly feminine garments – bows, ruffles, frills, sequins etc. If you told me a few years ago that I would be a fan of wearing feminine styles in the future, I’d call you crazy! (I was a massive tomboy).

Now, I have found that I CAN incorporate these feminine touches into my daily wardrobe and every day style – and I love it!

When wearing a feminine garment such as this one, it’s important not to over complicate the rest of the look, as this is the statement piece.

Also, by matching the rest of the outfit with similar tones and colours, you provide a more streamlined look. It’s easy to make this style of outfit over the top, but with the fitted skirt and ankle strap heels, the look is tidy and put-together.

Tips to Mastering the Feminine Style

– Form fitting is your friend. Get the proportions right with both fitted and looser styles in your outfit. I know I tend to harp on about this rule a lot – but it’s important! If you’re wearing a looser piece on top, opt for a fitted bottom – and vice versa!

– Frills, ruffles and detailed hemlines are easy to pull off and experiment with. If you’re a little apprehensive, start off with a top or shirt that has minimal frilled detailing, and gradually work your way up from there.

– Lace is always going to give you a feminine touch. Enough said!

– Show off your curves with a belt. You do know they aren’t just useful for holding up your loose pants? Belts can be worn as an accessory, and are great for showing off your curves too!

Get the look!
