Another day, another ruffle. My closet is filling up with them. I’ve always liked a good ruffle but lately, I love them. Proof: This cocktail dress and this sweater (under $100!) are now in my closet.

(On a side note, check out the ruffles on this fab little dress. It’s calling out for a par-tay.)

Today’s ruffle comes in the form of this Clu t-shirt. It’s a new favorite that I’ve been wearing on repeat lately. The ruffled cuff is a detail that’s subtle, but striking. It’s what turns what is otherwise a very basic white t-shirt into something special. And that right there is the true genius of Clu. I love this line for lots of reasons (I bought my first Clu top in college!) but it’s their fashion-forward spins (adding a layer here, mixing in a print there) on simple wardrobe staples like this one that make it a tip-top favorite of mine. This sweatshirt is a perfect example. The peek-a-boo ruffle gives it a playful touch, turning it into something that can easily be dressed-up or down. I also love the way that their tops and dresses (really love this one) give the illusion of layers. It keeps things interesting. Sometimes figuring out what to layer with what takes work. Luckily, Clu’s done the work for you.
