Jane Austin and Holly Hobby would be so down with the SS19 fashion line-up.
Romance is alive and well in the fashion industry as evidenced by the amount of ruffles, puffed sleeves, and flowery prints you will see this season.
For SS19 designers melded the sweet with the sensual, the Victorian with the country– think billowy sleeves set-off by sheer panels and lace, high necklines tempered by peekaboo cut-outs patchwork details and floaty hemlines.
As always the key to pulling off the look is all in the pairing.
Remember my number one fashion tip? Always wear the wrong shoes. Pair boots or flat shoes with a romantic look rather than stilettos to give the look a grounded feel. Mix and match soft flowy fabrics with edgier ones- cotton with silk or chiffon with denim.
Look for longer skirt lengths, higher necklines and anything with ruffles. Think designers like Batsheva, Doen, ETRO, Erdem, Chloe and Ulla Johnson- they know how to do this trend right.
Once you have a firm grasp of it don’t be afraid to combine high with low, new with old. This is how you create a look that is memorable.
You know all those prairie pieces you bought last summer? Well, I have some good news for your wallet they are totally re-wearable and fit right into this trend. Lean all the way in and add pearl barrettes and layered necklaces to really kick it up a notch.
The Romantic Trend is oh so wearable, makes you feel fancy AF (it’s chic but totally comfortable), looks great on all ages and all body types, is easy to incorporate into any personal style and may be just the dose of romance and whimsy your spring wardrobe is calling for.
