A subtle ruffle is something that can't go wrong when placed correctly and the ruffles on each shoulder of this Zara dress are no exception. I like the variation of this pattern (typically it's white with black) because it feels very warm to me. My closet is pretty monochrome in the work wear department, but this dark navy with a pop of red is something that is still subtle enough for me to wear to a place of employment.
This is one of those pieces you can just throw on and head out the door in without much fuss. You can dress it up by putting your hair in a low bun with some volume or by adding a statement necklace if need be! I am wearing it with my suede peep toe heels from Aldo, but a nice white cutout loafer or pair of nude ballet flats would go great as well.
I have to give a special shoutout to my awesome cousin for these vintage Liz Claiborne earrings. You can find more vintage earrings, brooches and other little bitty statement pieces on her Etsy!
This look is simple, cute and easy to pull off. Some of my favorite brands to shop for clean, tailored dresses (other than the occasional find at Zara) are J. Crew, Madewell, Ann Taylor and Banana Republic!
