Here is the latest holidays look in collaboration with H&M to inspire you to get the most bang outfit style for party season! As I suggested you recently, you can be more sassy and bold with different fabrics style as well as detailed textures like sequins,crochet, satin or velvet. Plus, from high-neck blouses to lace and embroidery, the fashion world is taking a nod from the Victorian era. This said, if you’d love nothing more than to bring a touch of vintage charm and old school sweetness to your party season look, there is no better way to explore frills,layers or ruffles. In fact, when worn right, ruffles add softness, movement to minimalist offerings, a sense of charm and drama, which is essential to survive the holidays.
In fact, ruffles have been given an elegant makeover and more wearable than ever this time round, much more versatile than you think, and kind of fun to wear. Sure, ruffles still imbue a feminine charm, but they also add a sense of drama that makes for a perfect evening party look. You can therefore make ruffles work for you by aiming for a sophisticated look without the overly girly vibe. Plus, to avoid looking too saccharine, opt for a structured or exaggerated flounce and work with a pair of tailored trousers. If you go for a ruffle blouse with a high neck or a bold bow, you won’t need jewelry as your neckline already makes a statement. Just pair it with high-waisted black pants and pumps for a chic ensemble and a grown-up look.
Those who are only dipping into the trend should consider a white or black yoke blouse or a ruffle trim shirt, which look great teamed with a pair of dark wide-legged jeans to get in on the ’70s trend or a boyfriend jeans For those who really want to stick with the feminine elements of the ruffled top, you can double the ruffle with a matching skirt, or up the contrast with a white midi and simply tuck it in, if your skirt has a high waist otherwise the fabric balloons over. Finish your look with a sleek clutch and sparkling pointed heels. Another little trick is to belt the waist as it emphasizes the shoulders to create a traditional « power suit » silhouette out of an unstructured vest and ankle-length. Be aware that ruffles around the neckline and on sleeves is a lot of look so ruffled options have loads of personality — Just keep the rest of your outfit simple. On the flip side, you can still wear an elaborate printed ruffled top and mix it with other prints — Being more bold is a style risk worth taking, but since they’re such a statement piece, I’d suggest keeping things more simple with ruffled shirts.
