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?
Thanks so much for visiting my styling blog!

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!)
