10th Commandment: March 21

Mar 21, 2013

I just purged all of my ruffled pieces from my closet, so of course ruffles are a hot trend for spring.  [headdesk]  Here are a few tops that bring the frills without being juvenile.

Tahari Willow Top ($88)

Still need something cheaper?  I found this BCBG ruffle blouse, this ruffle front ASOS blouse and this long sleeve blouse from Ann Taylor.

Plus size?  Try this printed blouse or this chic cobalt blouse.  Petite?  This emerald blouse is gorgeous, as is this printed blue top.

    I hate super frilly ruffles, but these are subtle. Love them under suit jackets.
