This season is all about chic, statement-making details. And while we’re always up for being bold, we love trends that offer up something a little more subtle and sexy like…ruching. What we love most about this textured element is how fun, flirty, and figure-flattering it makes every single piece. From casual cotton dresses to tops, dresses, and skirts, adding a little ruche to your summer wardrobe is a must. The best part is, you can be as simple or as frilly as you want.
We decided to keep things clean for this look with a white blouse by Veronica Beard and a neutral skirt by James Perse. First, the blouse. We love this silky, feminine take on a classic short-sleeved top. Yet, it’s the ruched detailing that makes it incredibly romantic and chic. The midi skirt offers a flattering fit and the ruche detailing again gives it great texture. We paired these pieces with mules and a raffia tote for a summer touch.
Michael’s Styling Tip: Ruching is most often found in fitted items – tops, dresses or skirts. Be adventurous and wear a textured piece that flatters your figure like we did here.
