heeelllllooooo, lovebugs! so you’ve probably seen ruffles EVERYWHERE this fall. on tops, on sweaters, on sleeves, on skirts…on literally everything. initially, i wasn’t the biggest fan of ruffles and frilly things. y’all know me, i like simple, easy-going outfits like look like i didn’t try too hard. but sometimes you’ve just got to step out of your comfort zone, try something new, take some risks..isn’t that what fashion is all about?
today, i wanted to share my tips on how to try out a new trend!
if you’re interested in a trend but a little intimidated, start small. don’t buy the frilliest top out there. maybe grab a sweater with ruffles on the sleeve or a skirt with a cute ruffled hem, and once you build confidence in that then branch out.
this tip may be kind of obvious, but i’m going to share it anyway. if there is a trend you’re unsure about, don’t spend a ton of money trying it out. find a more budget friendly piece to dip your toes into. i got this embroidered top from Target (it comes in a plain blue & white pinstripe option, too) for just $20!
here’s a few fun ruffled tops that won’t break the bank!
