How to Style: Ruffled Blouses

Friday, May 05, 2017 Emily Ehardt Blog

Happy Friday HalfStackers and Happy Cinco de Mayo! This weekend, let's all try incorporating the fun spirit of Cinco de Mayo into our ensembles by incorporating a ruffled blouse. Ruffles have been a major trend for the spring and will still be going strong into the summer. You can find these blouses in a variety of cuts and colors, so pick one that works best for you and have fun styling it. Here are my 5 tips to get you started styling your ruffled blouse:

1. Standout from the Crowd. While this tip is general, the meaning is to be interpreted in anyway that suits your own personal style. Choose a top with simple ruffles around the wrists or go all out with a blouse that has ruffles cascading down both sleeves. Whichever look you choose, be sure to make it your own.

2. Balance the Proportions. If your blouse has bold ruffles, then going for a skirt or pair of pants that are simple in design would be a great option to balance out the volume. 

3. Keep it Sleek. In order to keep this trend from looking too young, make sure you keep all of your supporting garments and accessories sleek. 

4. Half-Tuck it. This tip works for a variety of ruffled blouses and blouses in general, since the volume can make your waist disappear. However, with a simple half-tuck, you define your waist and add an interesting element to your look.
