Ruffle and Off the Shoulder Tops for Less

1. One Shoulder Top: H&M (up to 30% off) // 2. One Shoulder Top: STYLEKEEPERS
3. Bell Sleeve: Stone Cold Fox (Similar option for even less)
4. Bell Sleeve: Elizabeth and James // 5. Lace Top: H&M (up to 30% off)
6. Lace Top: Lovers + Friends // 7. Bell Sleeve Top: Soprano (Off the Shoulder option)
8. Bell Sleeve Top: Milly (Similar option with lace cut-outs on sleeve)

Off the shoulder, one shoulder, or cold shoulder tops, along with ruffles and lace are definitely big trends this season.  I have found some budget options and some investment pieces that look very similar.  Also, some of the budget ones are up to an additional 30% off through today (and free shipping over $40)!

Also, my friend Lana commented in a previous ruffle post - if someone older could wear these trends - she questioned whether there was an age limit.  In my opinion, ruffles (or any of these trends) can be worn at any age - if styled correctly.  Someone that is 50 would not style the top (or maybe wear the same top) as someone that is 20, but they could definitely wear the trend.  If you want to try a ruffle top or off the shoulder top - I recommend finding a top that you feel comfortable in.  This topic makes me think of my mom.  This year for Christmas dinner, she wore an open shoulder top.  I was so impressed with her trendy style, and that she picked out the top all on her own.  She looked totally age-appropriate (and cute) wearing it!  And, my mom is in her 60s, and she looked fantastic.

1. These striped Style Mafia bell sleeve tops (similar to #3 above).

2. These one shoulder ruffle tops and dresses would be perfect for spring break.

3. Pretty ruffle blouse (that is sleeveless) and under $25 and comes in 3 colors.

4. There is nothing like a bright white one shoulder blouse for spring.

5. This top just reminds me of the 80s - and its color is so vibrant for spring.

6. This ruffle hem blouse is only $18.

7. This chambray off the shoulder blouse is a great deal.

8. This floral cold shoulder ruffle blouse would look great with jeans (or shorts) this spring/summer.  It also comes in solid colors, too.

9. This color is such an elegant color for a dress.  I think you could wear it now or even save it for next year and wear it with a turtleneck and tights for winter.

10. The cutest striped bell sleeve off the shoulder top for $14.

 Some of you may have noticed there was a problem with some of the links in yesterday's post.  There was a technical issue with Nordstrom that got resolved later in the day.  So, they are now working. I have listed the ones that were broken below - in case you wanted to check them out.

1. This pink ruffle cold shoulder top would be perfect for a girl's night out or date night.  It also comes in a lot of different colors.

2. This ruffle sleeve sweater is a favorite of mine. 

3. I love these perforated chunky heel sandals.

4. I keep thinking about getting these booties.  If I would wear them as much as my Jeffrey Campbell ones I did last year (and get as many compliments), they would be worth it.

5. This bell sleeve/ruffle top is so pretty.

 I am participating in the following link-ups.


  1. I seriously need all of these tops! They are all so gorgeous!

  2. That blush bell sleeve top is so pretty! Love it!

  3. LOVE!! I like the textures of the SAVE ones so much better!!! I literally want them all, lol!!

  4. I'm loving lace lately. Great options on save and splurge. I love to see how closely the less expensive version look again the splurge. I'm always on the save side.
