I’ve noticed that for the upcoming season everything and its mother is covered in ruffles. Now, I like a good flouncy ruffle as much as the next girly-girl, but some of the stuff I’ve been seeing is serious ruffle overkill. Like, trying to look really fancy for your fourth grade piano recital. So here are my suggestions for how to subtly embrace this popular look while still feeling like a grown ass woman. Because I lived through middle school dances once and I don’t really want to channel that time-period in my life again, thankyouverymuch. The key is to balance the fluffy, busy-ness of the ruffle with super streamlined and sleek pieces- like a ruffled sleeve top with super slim pants or jeans.

I adore this one- sweet with a little bit of n edge in the distressed denim and embroidered loafers.
Love the first ensemble!
Love everything about this outfit
I hate the ruffle trend, but I actually really like several of these looks… Nice work (as always).
I love the title! LOL
The ruffle trend is a little too Carmen Miranda for me! Plus it will date so fast. I like a lot of your choices because theyre not too over the top.
LMAO! You speak to the exact feeling I have about ruffles. 👏👏👏👏
You are brilliant as ever. Seriously – how did you develop your eye for fashion? Future post topic??
FABULOUS post, I think I pinned every single outfit!! Love your choices, you are always classic with a flair, I love that!! Thank you for letting us shop vicariously through you.
Thank you for this post! On point as usual : )
Erin, your commentary is spot on! I absolutely love the polished casual look. I am more of a minimalist in my fashion taste, and that styled look is perfect.
Just bought the first shirt you posted! You are the most reliable fashion advice I have – thank you!!! Whenever I wear something from EOS I always get compliments!!
Love all of these looks, and especially the Mignonne Gavigan scarf. Truly a work or art!
Great post! I love the ruffle trend but can’t always figure out how to make it work on my petite frame – without looking like I’m trying to channel the early 80’s. You’ve nailed how to make it work!
Thanks for the great blog! The first skirt link doesn’t work. Where is that from?
Agreed, I’d love to know it as well!
