Another hottest trend this season is frill and ruffles. Though it may sound too girly on paper, it’s actually very easy to style ruffles in real life. Here are a few styling tips for styling ruffles for minimal ladies out there.
#1: Colour Blocking
The easiest way to rock ruffles is to go by the ‘total look’. It’s a fool-proof formula for any newbie when it comes to styling harder trends. Try off the trend by choosing an overall one piece like a slip-dress or pair the same colour top with bottom for a not overdone look.
#2: The Safe Rule
Try paring ruffle with simpler pieces like a basic turtle neck top or a normal crisp shirt for a sleek and sharp look. This is also a great way to tone down a statement ruffle piece to be more day-appropriate and less in your face.
#3: Toughen Up
It’s no secret that ruffles are feminine, fun and flirty. However, it can be all too much when worn head to toe. Try toughen the look up by adding a masculine touch like a pair of trainers or a pair of boots to balance out the total look to be less ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
#4: Add Black
Another easy way to balance out frill and ruffles is to simply add a touch of black. It’s a great and simple way to make any ruffle outfit looks edgier without taking away too much of the intended girly vibe.
#5: Break the Line
Ruffles and frill often come with a lot of volume which can make you look shapeless. Try breaking a line and enhance your waist by adding a belt to accentuate your natural body curve.
