Aside from when I was a kid, and maybe a holiday function in middle school, I was never a person that went crazy over holiday attire. I love seeing holiday garb on other people, but for myself, I’ve always liked more subtle details to show off my holiday cheer. One way to do that is with ruffles.
The color of this BR Factory Drop Shoulder Ruffled Sweater is perfect for Fall + Holiday; the color is so rich, and the shape of it allows for a lot of versatility with how you wear it. I’ve worn it with boyfriend jeans + mules, black skinnies and flats, and then I decided to pair it with these A New Day Side Piped Pants from Target. They’re ankle length, so if you’re taller than me they’d be cropped but for us shorties they’re perfect, lol.
This darker cherry hue was a little more subdued than red, but still allows for the look to be festive, especially with a sparkly statement necklace (similar here).

Paired with neutral pumps (similar here), I could easily wear this to an office party or work dinner, or make it a little funkier and swap them out for leopard booties. I tend to stick with black and denim pants but I’m so glad I got these. I was moving things around in my closet the other day and placed a patterned blouse near them that I got for something else and easily made a new outfit so yay! They’re also available in a hot pink and teal-ish green color; that teal is calling my name so I’m going to try to get those too!
SHOP THE LOOK
So this week I was invited to co-host a Trendspin Linkup with my girl Laura (Walking in Memphis in High Heels), Jenna (Visions of Vogue) and Erin (The Fashion Canvas) and I couldn’t be more excited! The theme this week was ruffles (hence this look) so if you’re a style blogger and have a ruffled look, please add your link below! I know it’s a little hard to navigate the blogosphere right now, but this is a fun way to share your fashion blog and discover new ones. I missed the community of the early days of blogging so this is a simple (but stylish!) way to get back to the basics.
Here is the linkup! Next week is holiday style so start planning your outfits!
