How to style a ruffle skirt without looking to girly? Pair it with a leather jacket and ankle boots! Et voilà.
I finally took the time to go shopping for Fall, and had a major crush for this IRO ruffle skirt. Which is weird because well, ruffles and everything that looks too girly are usually not my go-to. But I could not resist this gorgeous, deep-red print as well as the high-waist. It will be gorgeous in a few weeks with a giant chunky jumper, but right now in LA the temperatures are still high and we haven’t really switched to sweater weather. My first reaction was to wear the skirt with a white tee, but in France the red and white combo is associated with ferias where thousands of people gather to drink, dance, all dressed in red and white (les Fetes de Bayonne). So it’s kind of a fashion faux pas to associate these 2 colors! With a black tee? Boring…the best solution was to mix two prints, wear this ruffle skirt with a striped tee-shirt, then throw a leather jacket on it for the rock’n’roll touch.
