Ruffles and runway models? It looks like these two things do not belong in the same statement! After all, we have always associated ruffles with playful and girly clothes that are the total opposite of what the runway models wear. But did you know that you can wear your ruffles like a true runway model? Yes, that’s true! It will all boil down on how you can style it.

If you wish to know how to properly style your ruffles like the runway models do, you have come to the right place! We are here to help you wear ruffles like a runway model. In fact, here are some of the style tips that you need to know to do that:

Do color block.

If you wish to make your ruffles look modern and chic instead of girly and sweet, we recommend that you try out the latest trend—color blocking. You can do this by opting for a dress or top with a neon color like green, pink or blue.

Edgify it.

There is no better way to wear your ruffles like a runway model than edgifying it and the best way to do that is to wear your ruffled clothing with a pair of black boots. The addition of this edgy piece of accessory can prevent your ruffles and laces from looking too bridal. Plus, it balances off the girly appeal of your dress.

Go with black accessories.

Since the laces and the ruffles are already feminine and girly enough, the next best thing that you can do is to balance off the entire look with the use of black accessories. Black accessories are best paired with peach and lilac frills. Opt for edgy accessories like chokers or chunky bracelets.

Show some skin.

The bad thing about wearing ruffled clothes is that they tend to look frumpy. The best way to avoid that is to show off some skin. You can do this by opting for cut out shoulders or high slit. The show of skin will surely prevent the dress or clothes from looking too frumpy.

Go with leather.

If you are not the type of woman who loves all things feminine but you want to give the ruffle trend a chance, the best thing that you can do is opt for ruffled clothing in leather. Donning a leather jacket will help you walk in the thin line between girly and gritty.

Go with plunging neckline.

Balance off the sweet and innocent look of ruffles with a plunging neckline that will add a touch of sexy to your look.

So you see, wearing ruffles like a runway model is not impossible at all. With the styling tips that we have mentioned above, you can turn your girly and playful ruffles into sexy and high end outfits that runway models wear. So do you have any questions?
