Review & OOTD: H&M Ruffled Blouse

H&M ruffled blouse (white)

I love white and ruffles so I went to my nearest H&M as soon as I spotted this blouse on Jen at end of February. Unfortunately I forgot to do a review right away so I’m not sure if it’s even still available. Please refer to the pictures below for the tag and further details if you want to try to track it down. It comes in both black and white (of course I got both colors) and it is made of 100% polyester. I found the blouses on the second floor of the Newbury St. store in the Modern collection.

I tried to pair the top with longer length blazers but I think it looks best with a shorter jacket. The only dislike I have about these blouse is the huge gap that shows your bra. I plan to sew a hidden snap button so that I don’t have to wear a cami underneath.

Here is a similar alternative from Forever 21’s Love 21 collection if you can’t find the H&M version:

I won’t assume that everyone has heard about the tragedy that occurred on Marathon Monday but this time around it felt especially personal since Boston has become my home. Please consider making a donation to The One Fund if you’d like to help those that have been affected.

    lol when I saw the F21 shirt, I thought of your H&M one.. except it was only half done lol I think I might've seen this blouse actually last month but didn't like the slit. Idk why I didn't think of installing a hidden snap button.. silly me. Will go to my local H&M tomorrow to check it out! Thanks for sharing the info & the piggy eraser Jess! 🙂

    Such a pretty blouse, I like the ruffles/drapery. Does it wrinkle easily? I think it looks great with that blazer.xo, Yi-chiaAlways Maylee

    Thanks Christine. You literally sent me the link to the F21 version right around when I published this post and it's funny that we both thought the same. I hope you can find the blouse today.

    Thanks so much, Yi-chia! I don't think it wrinkles too bad and it still looks cute by end of day.

    Love the blouse! I like the H&M version better than the F21 as F21 might not look as formal with the one sided ruffle. Everything looks very put together. I'm going to H&M to return a skirt so I'll see if they still have it! How do you like your Louboutins?AllisonReaches the Sky…

    You are lucky that you can pull off the longer length on this top. I love it with the blazer! The H&M one is way cuter than the F21 version. I wonder why they wouldn't do the other side. It looks so strange. Hope you are staying safe! <3

    Thanks Allison! I like the H&M version more too and I hope you find it. I've had my black pair of Louboutins since 2010/2011 and they are still in great condition since I decided to get a vibram sole on the bottom. I also purchased a nude pair of simple 85s last summer but they still haven't stretched out so I may have to let them go. I like the look and height of the simple 100s better.

    Thanks so much, Annie! <3 They should have made it a tad shorter so that you can rock it too. If only it came in more fun colors (but I think black and white are enough).

    I love your top!! I'm a sucker for draped ruffle tops in the sheer cream fabrics. Especially love that this one has a high neckline but is collar-less. It's so effortlessly chic and pairs great with any blazer 🙂

    Thanks so much Yvonne. I am okay compared to those that were affected by last week's bombings. 🙁 We went to visit yesterday and it was even more moving to see the makeshift memorials around the area they fenced off.
