As early as the 16th century ruffs became a common accessory to dress up the upper portion of gowns. Their garments were constructed with several layers of lace to form exotic collars. Famous historical figures such as Marie Antoinette were known to where this look. Below Valentino has recreated the elegance of one of the most feminine fashion periods.
In my look I’ve paired this beautiful Victorian inspired blouse with a tiered fringe skirt to add to the chic look. I accessorized with a classic black chain strap purse and simple ballerina flats.
