The high ruffled neckline trend came to my attention when I saw the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection for Fall 2012 – see this dress. I adored the purple color, but I also liked the quirkiness of the neckline. The clothes on Alexander McQueen’s runway this season are stunning even if they aren’t immediately relevant to everyday activities. I almost passed on referencing them in my 31 Days series, but then I noticed the high ruffled neckline.
Last year, after seeing the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection, I found a satiny blouse with a similar neckline and lace detailing at Goodwill. Despite the blouse being at least three sizes too big for me, I bought it. I still haven’t altered it, but thanks to today’s photo shoot, I now know that I can coordinate it with my plum skirt! Seriously, I need to alter this blouse so I can wear it out of the house.
Do you have a high ruffled neckline in your closet? How can you style it this fall?
