How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek – Ruffle Hem

By Tuesday, April 26, 2016 0 Permalink

Well that was a quick month! I feel like there are still so many more types of ruffles out there. Infinite ruffles! But a month is only so long so I tried to style a variety of ruffles to show you some options that are out there. To end the month, I’ve picked two dresses with ruffle hems. Last week we emphasized the top section with ruffles, now we’re going for drama for your bottom half. Both these looks are feminine and a bit dressier, but they are different enough from each other that you can really see the wide range of ruffled hems.

Ruffle Hem | How She'd Wear It with Style and Cheek

1. BaubleBar Odette Tassel Pendant

2. Anthropologie Camellia Dropwaist Dress

3. Via Spiga ‘Wynola’ Mule, 3″ Heel

4. Shashi Barbara Double Row Bracelet

5. Lady Grey Crystal Infinity Ring

6. Lady Grey Crystal Aurora Ring

This outfit feels so much like spring but could just as easily be worn in summer. This is a tricky style to wear as the ruffled hem on this dress is very dramatic and adds a lot of visual weight to the look. I think the best way to offset this is to wear a heeled sandal or mule for height. No flats here, unless you’re very tall and thin, otherwise you’ll look like you’re wearing a bag. You need length with this outfit and heels can do that for you. A long sweater pairs well with the dress and doesn’t chop you in half, but really this dress stands alone so wear it in warm weather without something over it. Add a long necklace and some delicate jewelry to keep the look as feminine as possible.

2. Nasty Gal Ashton Plunging Ruffle Dress

3. FP Collection Sun Seeker Tall Sandal from Free People

4. Diane Von Furstenberg 440 Gallery Secret Agent Clutch

5. Rebecca Minkoff Stone Negative Space Ring

6. Michael Kors Pave Crisscross Ring

7. Vita Fede Super Ultra Mini Titan Crystal Ring

This dress is so gorgeous and though I tend to shy away from ruffles, I love this dress. The plunging neckline, the icy blue, the Grecian feel. I went with it and decided on gladiator sandals even though the picture uses over the knee boots. We’re getting into warmer weather so a gladiator felt more appropriate. The tassel earrings work well to balance out the ruffled look and I’ve added a gold woven clutch and some rings for a little extra bling.
