That Burberry Vibe
Burberry has been giving me so much inspiration lately. Their ruffle dresses from the spring collection, and of course, the eponymous trench are the driving forces behind this look.
Luckily, it’s been a little chilly, so the Burberry vibe was just perfect. It even rained today, so the trench was a must. Don’t know about the suede boots though..
I really love this look, and I got the idea for it from a Burberry ad. And I’m so glad I was just able to add a belt to this ruffle dress and have it look so much more ruffly-er and more like the Burberry runway look.
Get The Look
I am in love with ruffles this season, and this dress is just what I wanted for this look. It’s great when some of my older dresses find new life. In this case, my poor little dress has hardly ever been worn! The white is a great summer color, but I love this ice blue dress (BCBG, $368) as well.
The easiest way to accentuate the ruffles is with a tie belt (Burberry, $95). Just tie it and move the dress around to give it that extra fluff.
I took the belt off my trench (Gap, $99) which made it look like the looser Burberry trenches I’ve seen in the ads. I think the price makes it a steal; it’s such a classic and really great quality.
Normally, I wouldn’t recommend suede boots when it’s raining. But these Manolos made it work! This would be a great transition outfit for spring. Now is also a great time to jump on these open toe boots, as they go on sale in anticipation of summer!
