Ruffles add a feminine touch to fall dressing and I love the look. The romantic look of ruffles adorns blouses, boots and even clutch handbags with a classic touch of frill to enhance your own personal style. Ruffle fronted blouses are a pretty look for daytime and look amazing with a tweed or all black pencil skirt. High waisted pencil skirts look fresh when paired with a wide belt and pretty ruffled shirt in a neutral shade. The 3/4 sleeve and full sleeve is a nice complement to a ruffled front blouse. Two standout ruffled blouses include the Cascading Ruffle Print Blouse ($100 at Ann Taylor ), and Kate Spade’s ruffle silk blouse ($275 at Nordstrom.com). Also taking on the ruffle trend are fall boots. It can soften the look of leather boots and booties. I’ve got my eye on these Marc by Marc Jacobs Ruffle suede knee-high boots ($790 at Net-a-Porter), Would look amazing with an all black sheath for night as well. In the ankle boot department, check out these too cute Easy Rider Izzie Ruffled Nappa Booties ($395 at NeimanMarcus.com). The ‘butterfly’ ruffle is a nice touch and you can work your jewelry to coordinate with the gold trim edging. A ruffled clutch like this one from Lane Bryant ($39.50 at LaneBryant.com) would be a nice addition to a more conservative buttoned down look for day or paired with an over-sized Alexander Wang tee and skinny jeans for your weekend outings.
