What Not To Do: Mariah’s Ruffled Dress

20Apr09

Mariah Carey stepped out on Easter in a pink ruffled dress that just screamed “Oh no!” in all the right ways. Even Mimi herself admitted to the dress being a hell no:

Why is this dress wrong? Well, there are simply too many ruffles! If Mariah was 12, this would have been perfect for Easter, but she’s 40. Ruffles are very much in, and I am a big fan of ruffles myself, however they should stay in one place. And as usual, because I’m all about solutions, I have found substitutes for the horizontally ruffled dress:

I never want to take someone out their comfort zone when it comes to styling. If ruffles is your thing, fine let’s do it! But let’s do it the right way. With this ruffled dress, there are 2 layers of ruffles and the asymmetry neckline, that sits on top of the bust, adds volume and body to the ruffles.

Another case of the layered ruffles, if you want to add volume to a small hip or butt area the layered ruffle-skirt is the perfect thing for you! This dress has the youthful element that Mariah strives for every time she dresses, so this way she can be young & chic at the same time!

These soft full layered ruffles fixes Mimi’s multiple ruffle fix! The silky soft fabric allows the ruffles to drape the body the right way, and it will fall over the curves perfectly!
