Two trends collide: ruffle back blazer at ASOS


Now, we know that blazers are fashionable right now,and we know ruffles are having a bit of a moment, too. Wasn’t it just a matter of time before someone put the two together, and created a ruffled blazer? No sooner said than done… ASOS have created this ruffle back blazer, which they’re selling for £45, and while we’re loving the curved seams at the front (like, really loving them…), we still can’t help but see clothes that are plain at the front and fancy at the back as the fashion equivalent of a mullet. On balance, as much as we like this little jacket, then, we think we’d like it a whole lot more if it didn’t come with the side order of ruffles.

What about you?

    I love the front, but hate the back.

    I quite like the back, though it does look a bit like a bustle, (which was meant to make your bum look big – why the Victorians wanted this is a complete mystery to me) so probably wouldn’t be great for everyone.
    Love the front much more though!

    I actually really like the back, just not paired with the front. I’d like to see the front have a more Victorian cut – I would certainly wear the jacket then!

    guess i’ll be the first one to say that i like it front and back? though i do think that the wide collar would be better with a plain back and the ruffles with a higher collar. but still, i’d go for it.
