White Ruffle Shirt for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s:  The Dressy Version

Quote of the Day: “The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.” Muhammad Ali

Again we look at that white ruffle shirt you have stuffed in the back of your closet.  The ruffle is a decorative trim that tends to be a more feminine characteristic in modern times.  I’ll show the same white ruffle shirts from the Business Version (here) in a dressier fashion for a night on the town!

50’s White Ruffle Shirt: Since the shirt is colorless, I love to add a splash of color and this jacket does the trick.  I’m also a huge fan of skirts and dresses for us women…I believe it sets us apart from the men!

60’s White Ruffle Shirt: Again, I pair the shirt with a skirt for a more formal occasion!  We have legs…might as well show them off!

70’s White Ruffle Shirt: In my thinking (sometimes skewed—ha ha), a ruffle is very feminine, so why not pair it with the color pink?

Here’s ruffles at the hem & sleeves of blouses, if you’re not a fan of them down the front of your shirt: (the Off 5th one is not really sold out last time I checked!)

    Like your outfit the best, Jodie. Shoes are great. The ensemble is very “springy” looking. I also think your Mom needs some color over the blouse. Aunt N.

    • Thanks Aunt Nancy!! Maybe I’ll wear this outfit for my date tomorrow night!!

    I love all the outfits but I’m curious why you opted not to select a jacket or sweater for Charlotte. Nancy looks great with the red sweater, especially with the shorter sleeve length. I think your mom would benefit from a splash of color on top, too. She disappears into her white blouse. You look amazing! I very much like your shoes.

    • I think you’re right that some color would have been nice for my mom’s outfit. It’s funny how I think an outfit look good when we’re in the try on stage, but then things look different in the final pictures (especially in comparison to the other two)! Thanks for your valuable opinions!!

    What a great site Jodie, I love this concept! I bet so many women benefit from your content. I love the earrings and the chevron skirt!

    This post is so cute, I love all of the skirts

  • I’m loving everyone’s skirts!!

    • Thanks Darlene! This jacket I’m wearing has a matching skirt, but it’s a little crazy together! Notice my legs are not tanned like yours—I’ve been trying to embrace my whiteness (oh, how I miss tanning, both the sun and sunless.)

  • First of all, great quote!
    I also love wearing skirts and dresses as much as possible. I enjoyed seeing each new take on a white ruffle blouse!
