Of all the trends that are popular this summer, the ruffle sleeves trend is my favorite! It’s funny because I never thought I’d want to wear it. Big sleeves have never been my thing. After some evaluation, I realize now that there’s something feminine about ruffles. Ruffled sleeves help to soften an outfit. I’ve enjoyed seeing other bloggers wear the trend as well. It’s always inspiring to see how people style the items I may be coveting.

One of my all time favorite places to shop is Zara. I love how they take the season’s best looks and make them affordable. Being honest, the clothing we like the most is usually out of our price range. I found a dress that I’m crazy about during a recent online visit. The best thing about it is that it was only $50. That’s a huge bargain when compared to a similar designer dress I wanted. As for color, the Mini Dress with Ruffled Sleeves is the most beautiful shade of red. The color was the perfect match for my Ruby Woo lipstick from MAC. People always tell me that red is my color. After wearing this dress out only one time, I’m beginning to believe them. 🙂
To style the dress, I kept it simple as usual. The ruffled sleeves are enough of an embellishment. There’s no need to add too much to it when it comes to accessories. Since I’ve always thought that gold is a better fit for red, I went with gold.
There you have it! This dress is simple, chic and elegant all at the same time. I received so many compliments when I wore this dress. It is definitely on my list of favorites!
