With temperatures rising in Dubai and the new spring/summer collections in stores, I am ready for summer 2017. Being a fashion blogger, it is always fun to experiment and create something new to share with all of you. The trend that I’m definitely most excited about this season are the adorable Ruffles popping up everywhere!
Ruffles add the perfect girly touch to almost any outfit. From an understated ruffled sleeve to a playful ruffled skirt, they bring a sophisticated twist to any item – no matter how casual! Moreover, they act as an accessory, making you look dressier than you are.
Nowadays, ruffled tops are almost in every shop at the mall! What I love most about this particular light blue top from River Island, is the linen material, which is perfect to beat this summer heat. To add on to the girly quotient, it even has a tie back…how cute right?!
I wanted to show off the top in all its girly glory, so I paired it with my favorite pair of skinny jeans from River Island. If you are curvy and short like me, go to River Island right now and purchase yourself jeans that guaranteed to make you feel like J-Lo circa 1994. They fit so well and the best part is I never need to get the length altered…YAY!
An all blue outfit screamed for nude heels, and this perfect pair is from Aldo. Nude heels are a staple in every wardrobe; it can elevate almost any outfit from casual to classy. Most of my heels are from Aldo; only reason being is that their heels are always the most comfortable and durable.
Now, let’s talk about the most special item in this ensemble; the customized beige bag! This bag is very dear to me; it was given to me by my best friend as a gift when we were both away at college. After 5 years of using it, I decided to spruce it up a bit. Luckily, my childhood friend, Niyati Gusani, is a genius at customizing almost anything. I wanted a travel themed bag that was unique to my style and she definitely delivered! Follow her on @creationsbyng to see more of her beautiful creations!
For the accessories, I went for my gold pearl earrings from Outhouse Jewellery and my customized bracelet stack from Vik Jet Fine Jewellery. Since I tried to keep the outfit monotone, I kept the accessories simple and classic, making the outfit versatile enough for day or night events.
Hope you enjoyed how I styled this ruffle top. Would love to hear how you would style it in the comments below!
