Happy Wednesday, friends! I’m back with the last part of my Fall Trends Under $100 mini-series and today it’s all about ruffles. Over the past few weeks, we have migrated from ponchos/capes and the color of the season, bordeaux, to off the shoulder tops and dresses to fall florals and bell sleeves last week. I thought that since this is the last week of this series, we would go out with a bang {a bright and colorful bang} to talk about a trend that I am surprisingly excited for: ruffles.

I am by no means a ruffle girl. Don’t get me wrong, I love ruffles on other people and think it’s such a cute and feminine look. Most of the time, I even love ruffles on the hanger! But, when I try it on, it just isn’t me. Especially dresses. I feel like I look like I’m wearing a tennis dress when I wear a ruffle dress — and that’s just not the look I’m going for! A few weeks ago, I purchased my first ruffle top and I’m actually obsessed with it. I would say it’s more of subtle ruffle, which is totally doable for me. A few more “subtle ruffled” pieces have caught my eye recently, like THIS blouse — not only is the color gorgeous but it would be a great layering piece for the office {more on fall workwear HERE}. 

As much as I love this ruffle top, the thing I love most about this look is the mix of styles — a little girly and a little edgy. Enter THIS faux leather jacket. I must confess, I do have a thing for jackets, especially leather jackets, and I love all the zipper details on this one. Leather jackets were made for the fall and with the under $50 price tag, you won’t want to miss scooping this up!

What was your favorite of the fall trends? For me, I will always have a soft spot for ponchos/capes and that gorgeous bordeaux color, but I’m most excited for my new-found love of ruffles. Subtle ruffles 😉

Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!

  1. That color combo is so pretty!! I love ruffles – I have a few tops for work with ruffles on them and they always make me feel so dainty and feminine LOL!! I love a great hot pink color on the nails too!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  2. This is such an awesome fall outfit idea, girlie! I know what you mean in regards to not really feeling that an overall style is you, but then come across a version that is! Goes to show that certain details can be presented in so many different ways! I love the mix of edgy and feminine in this look, that skirt is the cutest! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you're having a great day so far!



  3. I love how this mixes feminine vibes along with a bit of edginess! I love ruffles on other people, but I tend to stay away from them too…they just aren't my favorite. Love the pinks in this outfit.
