A Fashion-Forward Take on the Ruffled Top Trend

Ruffled tops are a major hit among fashion girls this season—all of our editors included. They add a whimsical, romantic touch to any outfit, which is an easy way to make more of a statement. In fact, this style of top is exactly why this street style shot caught our eye. The only difference here is that this muse brought her striped ruffled top to the next level with the help of some fashion-forward pieces.

If you're all about pushing the fashion envelope when it comes to your personal style, forgo wearing a similar ruffled top with the expected pair of jeans and polished shoes. Instead, style the top with a high-waisted pair of paper bag pants, a chic chain-strap bag, and a pair of cool, contrasting lace-up shoes.
