Ruffles are the ultimate feminine touch, there is no denying that, but this year ruffles are shedding their girly attitude and opting for a little edginess instead.  Typically when you think of a ruffled skirt the words sexy and edgy are not the first things that come to mind. But the ruffled skirt can be both ultra-feminine and ultra sexy when styled properly. We love how fashionistas are pairing sweet ruffled skirts with feisty leather jackets, sexy sheer tops and punk inspired vintage t-shirts.  Just when we thought that ruffled skirts were for little girls, they made a very grown up fashion comeback.

If you want to try rocking a ruffled skirt at the office we recommend pairing a black layered ruffled pencil skirt with a silky bow blouse. This look is sophisticated and professional enough for the office, but the addition of the ruffle gives the look a little personality and life. For a flirty and fun date night look we suggest pairing a ruffled mini skirt with a simple tucked in black tank. This outfit will show off your figure and keep you looking super chic as well as polished and sweet.

Try The Trend Tips

Ruffles are a great way to add a fun, fresh accent to your look, to help you master the trend here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Remember that ruffles can at times make you look wider than you really are. So choose your ruffled skirt carefully and make sure it fits you to a “T”.

Don’t pair a ruffled skirt with super girly prints like florals or polka dots, this look is already super sweet and young looking so there is no reason to add any more youthful touches to your ensemble.
