In Love! Vintage Ruffles

All above examples are from modcloth.com, an absolutely fantastic online store for vintage and unique clothes. Very non-mainstream.

I chose three very diverse examples of ruffles to show what  ruffles can do. The top furthest on the right is very reminiscent of the mid-20th century. It goes along with the emerging Mad Men craze. This is somewhat more of a fashion statement as it distinctly sets your style towards the vintage direction.

How can you pull a vintage sweater like this off without looking ridiculous?

Pair it with casual items that you would normally wear. A nicely-fitting camisole, a pair of skinny leg jeans, and ballet flats are what I pair with my vintage ruffle cardigan.

Now, the next item is not quite as daring as the vintage sweater. The next is a more subtle touch at the ruffle/vintage idea.  It is an elegantly simple dress that you could wear any day. Pair this with your  favorite pair. of leggings and a blazer/jacket, and you could be heading off to school in style. You don’t need to worry about looking ridiculous with this garment.

And now….the grand finale. The ruffled skirt. The skirt I chose for this post has a strange sort of 19th-century Gothic feel to it, at least it does for me, with the lace and silky-looking material for the waist. But the beautiful pastel colors makes it a toally eligible addition to your wardrobe. I have to admit though…this might be the hardest of all three to pair with something from your closet. Let’s brainstorm, shall we?
