Ruffle Top and Leather Pants for Date Night

When I received this ruffled top from SheIn, the feminine ruffles immediately caught my eye. My first instinct was to pair it with something more edgy or casual. When two contrasting pieces are paired together I really think they bring out the best in each other. A feminine piece paired with another feminine piece and the entire outfit can be overwhelmingly feminine. But pair a feminine top like this one with edgy leather pants and both pieces draw the eye. I added additional edgy elements with a burgundy leather clutch and lace up snakeskin heels to make this top perfect for a date night. Pairing it with distressed jeans and booties would really dress it down for an everyday look. By pairing this top with a pencil skirt, you are set for the office! Everyone needs a pretty, feminine top like this!

  3. Very pretty! I've never ordered from SheIn but love that top... may I ask how it runs as far as sizes? I'm usually a Medium at places like Kohls... is it true to size?

    1. I typically need to size up at least one size for SheIn items since they tend to run small. For this top I ended up sizing up to a large (I am typically a small) since it is stretchy fabric and I didn't want it to be too fitted. I did a post a while ago on sizing tips which are hopefully helpful too! http://whyidodeclaire.blogspot.com/2015/09/5-tips-for-shein-sizing.html

  6. I love the idea of offsetting something very feminine like ruffles with something edgy like a leather pant. the combo works flawlessly, and I love the layered necklace you've added as well.

  8. I think you're exactly right---the dichotomy really brings out the best of both items, and doesn't seem as costumey!! My step mom and I had a conversation about it just this morning while we were styling for a future post....she still thinks dressy goes with dressy---and I'm trying to switch things up!
    Can we talk about those wicked heels??? Love!

  25. Heading over to check out this top in just a sec. It is ultra feminine and you wear it so well. You just have a darling shape. Love it with your edgy pants but as you suggested, it would be divine with a pencil skirt, too. Did you go somewhere special in this?
