Shop the Look:
I’ll admit that I’ve developed an unhealthy obsession with ruffles since 2013, i.e. after Nicholas Ghesquiere’s last collection for Balenciaga a.k.a. the evidence ruffles can go with minimalism, as opposed to the popular thought they are an exclusively maximalist element. Blame it on my soft spot for all things playful and whimsical, or perhaps my sensitive, more feminine side. However, that doesn’t mean that I was ever into ultra-feminine and romantic style nor will I ever be. At the end, you can wear whatever you want and it comes down to how you pair and style a garment to adapt it to your style.
Beaufille is yet another example of a minimalist label that uses ruffles to give their garments a playful, architectural twist, like, for instance, in this top that combines them with denim fabric and an open back cut. I’ve paired this Beaufille top with ruffle hem pants to keep the theme going in the whole look. I considered pairing the top instead with jeans or a simple skirt to add balance to the ensemble and let the top do all the speaking, but when I tried this combination I am wearing, I kinda liked it. Fashion is all about taking risks and having fun, so don’t let rules always dictate what you wear.
