You can wear a ruffled top to work as long as you cover it up for day. This evening I am going to a fashion event, and I can look much more festive if I simply remove the jacket. If the event is a bit more businesslike, I will leave the jacket on! This Gryphon Belle Ruffle Silk Top came with a black silk sash, but you can just add your own silk ribbon or a sash you may have from another piece in your closet to a cream top to get the same look. With all of the ruffles and frills along with the bow on this blouse, I decided it looked best without any jewelry at all.
