I paired my ruffled skirt with a yellow and black top from Maurice's and then I added a gingham bag for interest.
For jewelry, I went with yellow stud earrings and a black and white bracelet. It was a warm day, so I was able to wear white sandals.
I really love this skirt. I was able to snag it for just a few dollars at a Younkers Going-out-of-Business sale.
When I think of ruffles, I usually picture some gigantic, frilly, ultra-feminine dress. But I found out in doing this challenge that there are many ways to add the ruffle trend to your wardrobe without looking too feminine or frilly.
Without a ruffle, this chambray skirt would just be so plain and uninteresting.
So what do you think? Are you a fan of ruffles or not? Be sure to check out all the ruffles in the other ladies outfits before you decide. Your answer might change and surprise you.
Brigitte - Brigitte Marie Foret Blog & @brigittemarieforet on Instagram - I love incorporating ruffles into my everyday looks, because they add a subtle femininity to any outfit. Ruffles possess the ability to transform any basic garment into an elevated statement piece. Whether worn during the week, or for a special occasion, ruffles are definitely an element of clothing that I enjoy wearing.
Nancy - Nancy’s Fashion Style - This is my beloved ruffle blouse. It's a old one and I don't wear it often, but those ruffles are so perfect to me. And I love the color combination and the kind a preppy look, but the punky feel that the blouse gives me. I need a black one too, of course. But this one, although it's not my favorite color, has the perfect ruffles. The only thing that I need from a black blouse are ruffles at the cuffs! So if you happen to see one, give me a sign!
Suzanne - Ask Suzanne Bell - Flirty and fun, ruffles add a touch of femininity to any outfit, which is something I’m looking for these days. Whether it’s an extra flounce on a dress or skirt or a big ruffle on top, give it a try and enjoy a little extra spring in your step all day long!
Ada - Elegance and Mommyhood - This lovely yellow dress has been in my closet for over a decade (it’s by Express). I wore it to our Florida vacation last year. Since the “challenge” was all about ruffles and flounce I decided to go full steam with this fully-ruffled dress. It reminds me a little bit of the 20s from a century ago.
Amy - Amy’s Creative Pursuits - “I always like it when clothing items have a little extra detail added to them. The ruffle on the bottom of this chambray skirt is flirty and fun! It wouldn’t be as interesting if it was just a typical A-line skirt.
Have A Great Day! Amy
