Simply Sophisticated Part II: White Ruffle Top with Banana Republic

Shop the post:

I’m back again today with another post with Banana Republic for their Simply Sophisticated summer campaign. Much like this dress, this white ruffle top is another piece that I probably wouldn’t immediately reach for. The Victorian vibe of this top doesn’t totally align with my style. (Keep reading…!!)

white ruffle top c/o // scalloped shorts (identical + here) // faux leather jacket (similar, here + here) // red heels (option here + here) // leopard clutch (similar, here) // Lisi Lerch earrings (borrowed from a friend, try these or these) // sunnies (identical) // watch

However, when paired with a modern cut like these scalloped shorts, an edgy jacket, like this, and some strappy stiletto heels, this poet blouse ends up to be anything but boring. I want you to try stepping out of your closet comfort zone and try pieces that you don’t think you’re going to like. You might be surprised at how it looks on, makes you feel or how it can completely be transformed with the addition of pieces that more align with your style.

As always, thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

xoxo, Hillary
