Retro Ruffles

Ruffles, have been trending on and off since decades, but never have they failed to amuse me and be my staple retro pieces. I love ruffles, but too many of them tend to make ME look funny, even though most of the others I have seen who wear them look drop-dead gorgeous.

Lately, I found a shirt with the perfect amount of ruffle that I needed. Paired with a lace skirt, it gives out some major ’50s – ’90s feels. I wanted to give this outfit a more rock and roll touch, which is why I added these black heels, instead of an otherwise subtle nude heel.

The accessories, are not much, but the statement ring is the showstopper. I did add a thin choker just for the shine and to finish off, there’s the black and white clutch/sling.

Shirt- AND. Shoes- Swans. Choker- Forever21. Skirt- Marks & Spencers.

 

If you noticed, I didn’t add any more colour other than the yellow shirt, because each piece here is a statement in itself, and I wanted the focus to be mainly on the shirt.

This whole look gives me a skip in my step, and I can’t wait to experiment with more retro looks.

Let me know what you think of this post in the comments.

Until next time…..STAY SASSY!

  2. Retro ruffles… What a beautiful way to take me back to the good old days of yore!!! πŸ˜‰
    The black and yellow combination itself is awesome and the ruffles in the shirt are the right kind of ruffles without making the outfit look too babyish… You look fantastic and once again have accessorised it just right…. The lace skirt is – how do I put it – ooh la la. I would definitely like to try this look but I’m sure I can’t beat your sassiness… You have that “X” factor which gives all your pictures a kind of detached attachment that’s why your photographs make the outfit you are wearing so “YOU”. Keep on the excitement in the blog dear, you outdo yourself with each successive blog.. Love you loads πŸ™‚
