I’ve already shared with you my favorite Victorian era inspired looks. In today’s blog post I want you to take a close up look through modern Victorian era fashion trends and see what’s popular nowadays. This year we still have delicate lace, floral appliqués, brocade, gilded embroidery, silk and velvet fabrics. Scroll down to see more Victorian-fashion ideas.
No matter what is your height, body type or shape, you can always create an incredibly stunning look. You are free to choose romantic style, gothic vibes, or keep things more contemporary. Of course, you should choose your accessories and clothes wisely, so your outfit is both practical and romantic. As you can see from the images below, Victorian era style is heavily inspired modern fashion. Nevertheless, you are free to choose and create your own look by mixing and matching various shapes and details. Personally, I love keeping myself look edgy and glamorous. Why? I simply adore Edwardian-inspired long coats, velvety dresses completed with ruffled collars, as well as constructed corsets and aristocratic tops.
The range of modern pieces like tops and dresses come with pretty Victorian era details, like lace panels, ruffled bibs, big bow-ties, high collars, satin, chiffon and lace fabrics. You are free to select whatever outfit you want. Those of you who wants to create more drama in their outfits, I recommend to add voluminous sleeves, ruffled high-neck blouses, baroque golden textures, vibrant embroideries, etc. Of course, it will make you look like you are wearing a kind of costume-y outfit
What I love the most about this trend, it’s the feminine appearance that looks both modern and edgy. Indeed, you can choose whether you want to look dramatic and bold or sweet and romantic. If you want to play it safe, then you better keep your outfit streamlined and modern and add just one or two Victorian inspired pieces. Even if you are plus sized or full-figured woman, there are lots of beautiful pieces with a not to the Victorian era: golden dresses, tops and jacquard print ensembles. Anyway, I would be honored to see what you are thinking of these creations. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
