We’re in the mood for a little romance—in our wardrobe! As summertime approaches, it’s the ideal time (and temperature) to experiment with little hints of lace, pastel palettes and delicate, airy fabrics. There is a lot of dreamy fashion around, dresses are elegant, long or midi, with small daises, roses, flowers, everything is in bloom, or with lace and in pastels. The simplest way to channel a romantic vibe? Look for color palettes in light blue, soft pink, cream, dusty rose and lavender.
Delicate embroidery is a dead giveaway that you’re entering romantic territory. When I look at these dresses, it seems to me they come from the past, as an amazing tribute to everything that is Victorian, fresh, shabby, romantic and nostalgic. They are the ideal choice for a summer evening, a day at the beach, a discovering afternoon in a new city by the sea. Embrace your inner hopeless romantic with shapes that flatter your figure. There is nothing sexier (yet at the same time surprisingly demure!) about a lady in a lace dress.
With all the intricate details of the romantic style, feel free to mix and match textures. Combine elegant lace with rougher white denim. Or balance the weight of crochet with an airy, waterfall cardigan. For accessories, look for delicate necklaces in rose gold and silver, but don’t be afraid to layer on a chunkier statement piece.
