If you are a fan of feminine silhouettes, this blue ruffle dress is for you. I love ruffles because they add shape and movement to any look and the frilly detail is just too sweet to pass up. This is the case for this little number.
When I found this dress from Nordstrom, I had to scoop it up. Since I am petite, I sometimes feel like ruffle pieces can swallow me up or hide my body. But since this dress is belted, I feel like the ruffles help balance and accentuate my shape.
The ruffles are not the only thing I love about this dress though. The blue and white striped material is so on trend and gives me all sorts of menswear vibes. (Couldn’t you see it as a men’s button down shirt?) To me this really plays with the balance of masculine and feminine and even though this dress is super girly, this fabric adds just enough coolness to make this dress super wearable for day OR night.
I plan on bringing this dress with me next weekend to NYFW to attend a couple of shows. I think it is the perfect piece to wear as it is appropriate in most settings, whether it be shopping, attending fashion shows, or meeting friends for cocktails.
