How to Wear a Doily

If there’s one thing obvious about fashion, it’s that nothing stays in or out forever. For example, I haven’t seen so many ruffles at the necks of blouses and shirts since the 1970’s, and what looked dated and stale a year or two ago, now looks fresh and new. (Funny how that works.)

Here’s the easiest way I know of to grab the new style, while simultaneously using something else you may not think of as stylish—a doily.

All you need is a doily and a shirt or blouse, in matching or coordinating colors.

Put on your blouse, buttoning it all the way to the neck. Now find a hole your shirt button will fit through on the doily. The hole should be a little above the center point of the doily. Button the doily on through the hole.

Let it drape in graceful ruffles.

That’s it, and aren’t you just the picture of fashion?
