Lace is the usual go-to of girls who want to rock a full-on girly OOTD. But if dainty lace isn't your thing and you want an outfit that's feminine but still bold, skip the usual lace and go for ruffles instead! Don't let the Marie Antoinette image stop you from rocking this fun trend because ruffles these days are daring, fashionable, and always on-point! So, read on as we show you five ways on how you can rock this Victorian-inspired trend in the 2010s without looking like a total blast from the past.

White tops are crisp, chic, and classic on its own, but you can up the ante of the classic white top even more by choosing a ruffled version! Keep the rest of your look bare minimum to allow your dramatic ruffles to take center stage.

Take some style notes from Gigi Hadid and pair a basic tank with a show-stopping ruffled statement skirt. Add a chic fanny pack around your waist to add some quirky style to your already fashionable look for the day.


Whether you're a fashion girl or not, you have to admit that the whole off-shoulder trend is heaven-sent. It's fashion-forward, it's feminine, and it's flattering, too. What's not to love? Take your bardot trend up a notch by choosing a top with voluminous sleeves. Wear it with a pair of black shorts and keep your accessories fun for a trendy look for the day.

Ruffles don't just add drama, they add a dose of fun to a preppy white button-down effortlessly, too! Tuck your ruffled white button-down shirt under a pair of blue skinnies for simple, but chic and preppy OOTD.

Embrace the femininity of the ruffles by going for a ruffled hem dress. It's feminine without going over the top and it's a versatile piece that can easily take you from day to night, too! Add a long necklace to the equation and you're good to go!
