FASHION FLASH: Rock ruffles …without lookin' like a doll!

Girly ruffles are cropping up everywhere! They add cool volume to a borrowed-from-the-boys blouse and a bit of pop to an already hot halter. Keep  your accessories low-key (we love cuffs this season) to avoid bein' over the top. If your outfit is too frilly, you might end up looking like a princess—and not in the good way. Check out a few of our faves.

Delia’s Julia Ruffle Top, $33,

Pair this blouse black or white with a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of cute flats and VOILA the perfect outfit for school or dinner out. Make sure to add bold accessories, like a bright cuff or a pretty headband.

Old Navy Racerback Ruffle Tank, $6,

This tank comes in a bunch of colors, so stock up! Pull it on over another tank or wear it under a light spring jacket. Throw on your fave jeans and sneaks if you wanna be casual or dressy jeans and flats for date night!

Wetseal Ruffle Neck Halter, $16,

Keep cool on sunny days with this totally cute halter.  Wear skinny jeans or safari shorts with chic sunglasses to give for a sweet, summertime vibe.

Wetseal Striped Ruffle Top, $21,

Gotta dress up? Try this twist on a button-down top.  You can wear it with dark demin trouser jeans or dressy khakis to look better than your class prez. Great if you’re going on a babysitting interview!
