WHAT WE'RE WEARING: Ruffle Shirt

Zara Ruffle Shirt

During the previously mentioned Zara sale that I went to a few weeks ago, I found this wonderful ruffled white long sleeve shirt. It is a cotton and polyester blend so it is easy to clean and light to wear during the summer. With the weather being more unpredictable lately, I have been wearing more long sleeve shirts. This ruffle shirt is both flattering and trendy as well as light enough to wear when it is warm. 

The shirt is shown here with a corset skirt on Zara's website. It lends itself well to being tucked into skirts as well as pants since the shoulders and arms are so large. I like to wear this shirt with my navy Banana Republic shirt and lace up blue flats. The navy and white combination is classic and looks perfect for work and for school. It also can be changed to heels for going out at night. You can easily add fashion jewelry for an even bigger statement but the shirt can stand alone and make just as much of an impression. 

I also like to wear this shirt with black skinny jeans and a belt for when it is cooler. For example, yesterday when it was raining and 55 when I left in the morning, it was the perfect weather to don this ruffle shirt with black skinny jeans and booties. I paired the shirt with my Zara skinny jeans and Tommy Hilfiger booties. There is a small amount of brown on the heel in these booties so there is a little bit of color, but not too much. This looks wonderful with a nude lipstick for day wear and makes the transition to night wear with a bright red lipstick.

While the version I have is unfortunately no longer available, here is a sampling of some of our other favorite ruffle shirts! Just click the photo for where to buy them!
