I’ve never thought of myself as a girly girl. Dresses where never on the top my list growing up, I was more of a jeans and shorts kind of girl… A little bit boyish, I know, hehe. Actually, I hated pink. I don’t know if it was because my sister was obsessed with everything pink and girly and I just wanted to take the opposite side, or if I was actually tomboyish.
Nonetheless, I do wear dresses (nowadays). Panama is too hot not to.
I love how I feel whenever I wear this cute little dress. It really compliments my hourglass body shape because of the way the ruffles are placed, and the way the dress cinches at the waist.
Because this dress is so feminine with the ruffles and its silhouette, I kept my styling very minimal, making it more me. A cute pair of sunglasses did the job.
Don’t let ruffles or frills scare you. They might seem scary at first, but study your body to see where they would look best! For example, I chose a dress with ruffles in my upper half since I’m slimmer there. If you have wider shoulder, maybe go for ruffles only on your sleeves or on a pant or skirt.
Always remember that a well placed ruffle is an amazing statement piece for your outfit, just like any good handbag or earring.
