#TheOfficeSeries - The One with the Ruffles

Hello Everyone!

I am back with yet another outfit post for the #TheOfficeSeries. First of all, if you are wondering how come I am on the road and not at work. I took these photos outside work. Makes it more easier to pose and unleash the blogger side of me.

Every time I think of ruffles it reminds me of Downton Abbey. Remember all those gorgeous gown on Lady Mary with subtle tiered ruffles? This trend has been around since the 16th century and it seems to be favourite among the designers. The trend has evolved with time and the designers have made it more modern to suit tastes of the younger generation. Usually, most people wear A-line or pencil skirts to work but stay away from ruffled skirts as it adds volume. Contrary to popular belief, ruffle skirt is flattering to any body type. The downward cascading ruffles, is very flattering and creates an hourglass effect on any body type. Easy way of incorporating ruffles into work wear is opting for shirt or top with ruffles. If you like to experiment and your office is more open towards dress code, then you can try incorporating ruffled skirt, dress, pants or jackets into your daily work wardrobe.

I love this trend and it creates interesting depth to any outfit. I paired tiered ruffled skirt with fitted black blazer. Completed the outfit with my belt bag. I usually carry two bags, one for my laptop and other based on the outfit I am wearing. The belt bag is god send, especially when you travel by metro or bus. I finished my look with wedge heels which has all the colours of my outfit. I am not a fan of dull colours,I need colour in my work wardrobe as it instantly lifts my mood. A pop of bright lipstick makes such a huge difference in the morning.
