Ruffles

35 comments
When I was packing for my recent trip to North Yorkshire, I decided that I wanted something new to wear for dinner in the evening. (Any excuse!) My initial idea was a really pretty, feminine dress, but for some reason I just couldn't seem to find anything I liked. Then there was the threatening weather forecast, and we all know I hate to feel cold! Luckily, Topshop came up trumps when I spotted this super sweet, ruffled top.

Ruffles 1 - OOTN featuring Topshop cigarette pants and ruffled top

It's high necked, so I knew that paired with some smart black cigarette pants, I would feel covered up enough to be comfortable in the less than clement weather, yet the frilled details and delicate floral print give a nod to spring time that I think we all start to crave around this time of year. I particularly love the frill around the yoke, which is a trend that seems to be really popular right now.

I picked up the cigarette pants from Topshop at the same time. They were a real bargain at £22 as they are such a classic item that can be worn with anything and everything. Some black heels (also Topshop and worn to death) and one of my trusty Zara bags completed the look.

I teamed the outfit with a bright pink lip, which just happened to be Brighton Rock by Topshop. So I guess you could say that Topshop is serving me pretty well right now!

I felt so comfortable and feminine in this outfit and can't wait to wear the top again. I think it would look really pretty tucked into jeans for daytime or with a skirt for a different take on a smarter look.

Are you a fan of ruffles and frills? How do you style them?

  3. Ah how gorgeous is this top - I absolutely love it and it suits you perfectly! I'm the same with you when it comes to the weather, that's why I'm always wearing jeans as the weather is so unpredictable!

    Love this outfit though - the way you styled it is absolutely perfect!! Gorgeous :)

  11. Never own any ruffles in my wardrobe mainly because I feel it's too feminine for my taste but gosh, I love your top. It's perfect!
