We asked Saks Fifth Avenue’s Fashion Director Michael Fink what he thought the best trends for Fall 2008 and Winter 2009 would be, and he said…
“One of my favorite looks for women is a romantic blouse with ruffles, bows or lace worn under a slightly revealing suit jacket. Then you can easily ditch the jacket for a fun, flirty night on the town.”
We’re loving the ultra feminine look of ruffled blouses. It’s so girly and fun, without being totally over the top. Here are a few blouses we’re craving…
What: Ruffled Blouse
Victorian-inspired rayon georgette blouse with lace-trimmed ruffles, wide collar and long, tapered button cuffs. Button front. This one would look great with trousers for work or jeans for everyday wear. It can even be worn with a nice pencil skirt for evenings. Very versatile!
Price: Orig. $49.00 On Sale $29.00
What: Surplice Ruffle Top
A long sweep of ruffles crosses over a plunging V-neck on this solid black silhouette. Details include seasonless 3/4-length sleeves, hourglass sides, and a long, tunic length. Stretch matte jersey fabric resists wrinkles. Works well alone or over a camisole.
What: Floral Chiffon Top
Great for layering, this sheer Floral Chiffon Top features a crinkle chiffon fabric with floral print, elastic smocked mock neck, front keyhole with tie, surplice V open back, flutter sleeves, and an elastic smocked bottom hem.
Add a feminine touch to any outfit with this ruffle trimmed, short sleeve shell in plus sizes. Button front adds style and sophistication to this cute top. Would look great dressed up with a skirt or dressed down with jeans.
Price: Orig. $39.50 On Sale $19.99
Lace blouse with cascading lettuce-edge ruffles and flounce cuffs. 3/4 sleeves; shirttail hem. Perfect piece for layering with a Fair Isle cardigan, a lacey skirt, and some brown leather boots. What a cute weekend look!
