Trending Stripes and Ruffles
Happy Tuesday! Today I want to share my latest obsession with you guys! And yes, this month’s theme is going to be stripes and ruffles!
If there’s one silhouette for summer that looks good on practically everyone, it’s anything that’s shoulder baring with a little bit of ruffle. There are so many beautiful feminine pieces that are perfect for any summer occasion. I will always be a pencil dress girl at heart, but when summer hits, I am all about ruffles and stripes. This season, I am delighted to see one of my favorite patterns for lighter weight fabrics available in so many unexpected silhouettes. Exaggerated bows, ruffles, stripes, off the shoulder and cold shoulder beauties, summer slides are just a few of the fabulous details that are upping the attitude of Summer 2017.
I couldn’t imagine talking about this season’s trendiest styles without mentioning stripes! Universally flattering, go-with-anything stripes are definitely my most favourite print because it is so easy to wear and works so well with everyday summer essentials like jeans and shorts.
If you read my blog on the regular basis, you probably know that normally, I’m a solid colours kinda person. Yet even I couldn’t stay away from this season’s trendiest patterns and prints after seeing those literally everywhere I look. There is a great variety to choose from but I think what I find most appealing this season is that there are quite a few subtle prints that even a print-shy person like me can easily incorporate into their wardrobe.
Just when you think you’ve seen them all, and bought them all, and there is none left, you come across just another gem like this Boohoo dress I’m wearing in today’s post. I obviously had to have it. It’s simple yet so delicate and feminine. And Guys it’s a real bargain, you better check it out before it’s gone.
Why I couldn’t resist this dress is pretty self-explanatory—from ruffle detailing the hem to currently the most popular trend stripes of pink I’m obsessed with. It’s a perfect summer piece to have. Pink and white stripes keep it classic whilst the frilled hem takes it to the top of the fashion ladder for 2017.
I decided to keep the rest of the outfit simple so it doesn’t clash with the stripes, fabulous Ted Baker Circle Lock Snake (so obsessed with this bag right now!) and ASOS Pom Pom Heeled Sandals. These cuties conquered my heart this season, how can you not like pomp poms!
