60s Nostalgia. #StyledByMarina
Continuing with the Autumn, retro theme, today I decided to do a quick blog post on how to find the perfect checked and ruffle blouse that suits you. I've noticed a fair amount of bloggers and celebrities are sporting this look as well. The way I like to style this kind of blouse is with simple black, high-waisted pants, preferably culottes because they are super comfortable, they compliment your body shape really well, and you can literally do anything wearing culottes. With the top itself is such a statement piece already, it's always smart to have a simpler bottom to match.
Before actually owning a checked ruffle blouse. I really wasn't sure if I would love this kind of style on me. I'd been seeing a lot of bloggers wearing it and it always looks amazing on them, however, I really had a hard time finding one that would fit me and looks great on me. Funny thing is I was never the one that tends to steer clear of vintage or printed shirts. I love me some shirts and blouses that have interesting prints or design on them. But I really had my doubts on those ruffle embellishments. So one advice I'd give is that when it comes to a top that has some kind of elaborate and statement design on it, make sure to try it on first.
