The thing I love about a ruffle is how it demands attention. Depending on the design, a ruffle can be placed in such a way that it draws attention and creates a strong focal point of the piece. Whether draped across your shoulders, falling along the side or spilling down your arms like a cascade of waves, a ruffle is a visually stunning piece of fabricated architecture and certainly worthy of a powerful fashion trend. Storets do really interesting pieces – I am loving this brand at the moment for directional fashion and individuality.
Being such a beautiful statement piece, I’ve kept the other items in my outfit pretty minimal to allow the top to shine. These leather pants however, are anything but minimal. A pair of leather slacks are a really valuable part of a fashionista’s wardrobe. They’re totally lust worthy and a real luxury item. You can pull them out for special occasions and they last a life-time like a good pair of shoes or a belt if cared for properly.
Although this top is a heavy weight, I simply couldn’t resist it and will put up with it for the Australian summer. There’s going to be a heat wave this weekend with temperatures in the high 30 degrees Celsius range. Oh my goodness! It will be a pool weekend for us…
Lots of love guys xx
