As ELLE says, “Romance continues to fill the air even as mercury levels drop. Spring’s ethereal Victorian-inspired looks have spilled onto fall’s runways, looking more romantic and sultry than ever. Clearly, tiers, ruffles and lace are still having a mega moment.”
On the one hand, there’s such a whimsical nature to the trend and it just oozes that classic Renaissance-era vibe, full of feasts and art and dancing and merriment. There’s a distinct element of natural beauty that I love!
But on the other hand? I’m not sure if I can picture anyone actually going out for a night on the town wearing a full-on Victorian outfit from head to toe, you know? I mean, unless you were going to spend the day frolicking around the Renaissance Fair — that, I suppose, would be an entirely different story altogether. In that case, I’d say “go ahead…Victorian-up that outfit and make a really spectacular fashion statement!”
Well, what’s the verdict, friends? Is the romantic Victorian trend a fashion do or don’t? Have you seen many people sporting the look this fall? What’s your favorite look from the trend? Would you wear it? I’d love to hear your awesome thoughts… xoxo
