A dainty ruffle can instantly update the look and feel of classic cuts and silhouettes. And whether you favour exaggerated flounces, or are more partial to delicate panels, ruffles continue to add oodles of feminine charm to your outfit. Consequently, they need not be costume-y or fancy to make an impact, as illustrated within these two key looks by INAYAH. Subtle alterations, instant style.

Black Ruffle Cuff Abaya - £49.99

Black Ruffle Cuff Abaya


Instantly modernising this much-loved modest outfit is a set of sleeve ruffles in the Black Ruffle Cuff Abaya. Inspired from the chest drops of gorgeous hanboks, the abaya itself has been kept simply chic, with a high banded neck, and gold zippered detail at the back. Fluted sleeves, are rendered statement-like instantly with ruffle panels at the wrist. The end look is especially one of a classic bell, with a more contemporary and stylish twist. Besides that, this gives way to a generous and floaty hem with plenty of volume for your comfort.

Crafted in crepe, the abaya will work beautifully for power-dressed evenings, with its deep midnight shade and more formal countenance. To style, wear it with sky-high heels and one of our luxury crepe hijabs should you fancy. Above all, metallic accessories, including large earrings and a tassel necklace or brooch will round off the look nicely! For the more adventurous spirits, you can maybe create a unique street inspired look by wearing it with booties or shooties, and plenty of studded accessories.

Black High Neck Ruffle Top - £29.99

Black High Neck Ruffle Top


Likewise, for a more smart-casual getup, choose this Black High Neck Ruffle Top that takes away from your standard neutral blouse. Crafted in a luxuriant jet-black fabric, the blouse itself is fitted loosely and can be worn both tucked in or out. A toned down version of a bishop sleeve adorned with a flouncy cuff accentuates the high collar of the blouse. And this is all brought to action by a ruffle panel. It drapes atop your shoulders a la a stylish cape! The end look is one of effortless sophistication without being overtly formal.

The blouse will work as seamlessly with skirts as with trousers or wide-legged pants. Frayed denims in a contrasting shade would look great with it too! Pair the look with court heels, and a hair-up style to highlight to the shoulders. And round it off with chunky accessories in leather or metallic hologram.
