I have to admit that the last time I wore this ruffle vest, I didn’t really like my outfit that much. The ruffles just seemed…weird. And so this vest went to the back of my closet and I haven’t worn it since. Well, I felt inspired last night and decided to give this redheaded stepchild another shot. This time though, it was going to be styled as a top! With the help of two safety pins, I successfully pulled the vest together and pinned it so that there was no peekage — all you could see was a big pile of ruffles. Just the way I like it!
Surprisingly enough, I love this repurposed of the ruffle vest look! I was a bit wary that all the ruffles would’ve overwhelmed my petite frame, but I think when it’s offset with a fitted blazer and skinny jeans, the ruffles are a nice touch of volume to an otherwise sleek look. I think I might just start wearing this ruffle “vest” more often now!
And based on how much I’ve been wearing blazers lately, you can probably say that this blazer and jeans look is a quintessential fall look for me. 🙂
