I am absolutely loving the ruffled, fluted hem trend that has infiltrated the fashion scene. While this style is in no way new, it is making a serious comeback this Fall. For me, it started with this flounce skirt from New York & Company’s new plus size line and it is continuing with this mustard beauty from Modcloth. The color is divine and the two tier ruffle is flirty, feminine and fun!
I think that one of the most interesting things when it comes to styling looks is the ability to mix and match elements that aren’t traditionally paired together. This principle can go for colors, patterns and of course garment styles. I wanted to create a little “ying and yang” when it came to this outfit by contrasting the frilly skirt with an edgy moto jacket. It’s a bit unexpected yet it blends seamlessly. To add to the edgy flair, I went with lace up black sandals and a black & white snake skin clutch to tie it all together. This is the best of both worlds!
*Fit notes: Skirt has a good amount of stretch that allows it to go nicely over the hips. Wearing a size 1x and it fits like a glove.
