Trend Alert: Ruffly Blouses

If ever you've longed to dress yourself in prim and feminine ruffly blouses, now is your chance. Ranging from multi-tiered cascades to simple accents, ruffles are all over shirts for Fall 2006. But the look isn't easy to pull off.

To avoid looking like a librarian or a lady who lunches, try pairing the flouncy shirts with somewhat tougher pieces, like denim and leather. For a dressier look, you can go more chic, but make sure the rest of your outfit is sleek, not fussy—think pencil skirts and graceful platform pumps. Here's a look at some of my favorite ruffly blouses at both designer and non-designer prices.

Rebecca Taylor Ruffle Top with Cami, $189, available here.

3.1 Phillip Lim Ruffle-Front Halter, $297, available here.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Casey Stripe Silk Top, $228, available here.

Elie Tahari Joelle Blouse, $248, available here.

For the non-designer versions,

Bebe Chain Print Amanda Shirt, $79, available here.

Banana Republic Sleeveless Ruffled Bib Top, $64, available here.

Forever 21 Ruffled Stripe Shirt, $24.80, available here.

Isaac Mizrahi Brocade Ruffle Blouse, $29.99, available here.

You too Jinx :D I have a few seasons on DVD and it is the best DVD ever. It is chock full of extras. I just bought the second season 2 of The Office and that is pretty good too. I could not even begin to pick my favorite eppy of Seinfeld... although the one when Elaine has "cake withdrawal" and eats that 60 year old cake is one of em. Get well, get well soon....we wish you to get well....

Despite the total prettiness of these tops, I think I would feel a little goofy wearing them.

Why does everything always have to be cuter in the designer versions?
