Ruffle Neck Blouse & Scallops

Another day, another outfit covered in ruffles. Are we noticing a pattern here? I’m obviously really drawn to feminine details right now; we can all agree on that.  This J.Crew Ruffle Neck Blouse hits all the right notes for me.

WEAR IT FOR WEEKEND

These breezy ruffle tanks are so sweet for the final days of summer (although, the heat doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon). In today’s post, I styled it for the upcoming weekend by pairing it with my favorite scallop shorts, block heel sandals, and my favorite cross-body bag.

WEAR IT TO WORK

You could also make it office-appropriate by tucking it into a pencil skirt or with trousers. The volume on top would nicely offset bottoms that are fitted in the waist and thigh areas (be it a pencil skirt, a pair of skinny jeans or even bootleg trousers) and a pair of classic pumps or slingback heels.

ACCESSORIZE

Because of all of the detailing at the neck, I would shy away from wearing this with necklaces and instead opt for a statement earring and some bracelets, or a bracelet and watch.

THE BEST PART?

This is one of those pieces that requires very little “extras”, since there is so much detailing on the piece itself. Keep the rest of the look pretty minimal and you’re all set.
