5 Ways to Wear: Ruffles

5 Ways to Wear: Ruffles

After the amazing response from last week’s 5 ways to wear velvet, I decided to focus this week on 5 ways to rock the ruffle trend. Think frills and cute trimmings to transform your winter wardrobe.

Outfit 1

I feel like this is the ultimate festive outfit – I always love wearing metallics over the Christmas period, and I can’t believe this skirt is off the high-streeet!The over the knee boots are amazing and always get so many compliments when I’m out and about – but make sure you tit tape them to your legs to stop them from falling down. I love the ruffles on the ribbed jumper – it makes it a bit more interesting and feminine.

Leather trousers are synonymous with cold weather for me because they are so warm, and I rally love how this sheer dress looks over the top with the plaid hoody and metallic boots.

Ok my favourite thing about this outfit has to be my brand new Olympus Pen camera. Loads of people always ask me what camera I use, and I totally swear by this camera. Also a moment to appreciate the cat that posed perfectly in the background and matches my outfit perfectly, haha!
