Even if summer is over, frills or ruffles are going nowhere; because the way they turn anything simple to a head turner piece through its textures is something that you cannot achieve with anything else – I even want a frilled sweater this rainy season just by imagining it! Having that said, these textures are becoming part of most of my ensembles from casual to formal wear even now that summer season has ended. And one of these outfits is what I wore at Bloggers United 13 last month of June.
Basically, I started this outfit with a yellow frilled top. Silhouette wise, it hides my figure a bit so I was thinking of pairing it with trousers to somehow highlight my waist and hips. However, I did not want to tone down the bright shade of yellow and sporting a pair of yellow or white pants is out of the picture because I only wanted to wear whatever available in my closet; hence, I just donned my yellow A-line skirt.
A-line skirts are perfect for every woman regardless of size, shape and age as it flatters the waist. If some petites think that it shortens their legs, the trick is to find the right length for your body: if you are small, go for short hemline; if you are tall, midi length suits you.
It is a good thing that my top has the right length for me that my waist is peeking and my hips are totally visible. As a result, even though I opted for A-line skirt, my outfit is not overwhelming for my body.
On the other hand, my tip for accentuating when you were about to go monochromatic is that red is always the flawless color to opt for regardless of what color you are wearing – this is why having a pair of red heels is a good idea. So instead of donning only one shade, which is yellow, I wore my red tassel earrings, red furry bag and red patent heels for accent and also, for texture.
