Ruffles are the softest, daintiest trend ever, right? Well, Renee de Guzman is out to prove you wrong, styling a pair of ruffled shorts to look urbane chic, not saccharine-sweet.
If you're just not into the whole pale pink, lace-and-florals kind of #aesthetic, we totally understand. After all, to each her own! Renee's trick is both easy and foolproof: Take a ribbed black high-neck (a dependable yet trendy closet staple) and team with block-heeled sock boots (one of the season's shoes du jour!). And, of course, the cherry on top: a silver ring-studded belt for that much-needed punk-chick edge. Short and sweet? More like short and spicy.
