The so-called Edwardian heels, Victorian flats, and embroidered gold shoes, are known to be a Victorian trademark that you can still wear nowadays perfect for an evening look. Also, you may opt for clutches made from black velvet with gold trims, as well as gold-plated necklaces with large pearls. Victorian belts and lace chokers can also be versatile enough to create multiple looks this spring. If you don’t have those pieces, you may go for a Baroque style scarf with an animal print that you can wear with simple casual outfits to add some glam to your look.

The elements of the Victorian fashion are velvet, brocade, and gilt as they add grace and aristocracy to any outfit. Since velvet is a symbol of this style, you may opt for a velvet dress in burgundy, navy, or black shade to channel the look. However, if you think a velvet dress is too hot for the spring season, switch to a lace dress with insets of brocade, georgette, or chiffon embroidery to wear the Victorian fashion effortlessly. Also, a bodycon silhouette like a button-down top emphasizing the waist and hip area, paired with form hugging pants is another must-have for Victorian fashion. Also, high aristocratic collars, slightly flared sleeves, and puffy shoulders can be great to wear the look.

  1. Go for outfits with gold trims to channel the elegance of the Victorian fashion.

Baroque prints with gold trims, outfits with gold accents, and blouses with gold embellishments are great to wear the Victorian fashion elegantly. You may actually think of a tweed jacket that is cut to the waist and decorated with gold leaves on the collar, cuffs, or on the entire length, which can be easily worn with any of your clothing pieces from your wardrobe. If you’re not a fan of gold, you may opt for cut-out styles of skirts or tops featuring Baroque patterns and prints.

  1. Feel free to mix different styles with your Victorian pieces.

You don’t have to wear all your Baroque and Victorian pieces together to rock the look this spring. Instead, go for a Baroque piece like a blouse and pair them with classic wardrobe essentials like casual denim jeans, cut-off shorts, lace skirt, classic black pants, or a pencil skirt. This way, you’ll create a more balanced look and you’ll be able to take the Victorian trend from special occasions to the streets too. Remember, just wear one or two Baroque style pieces and mix them with other classy, grunge, edgy, or contemporary pieces to refresh the look.

  1. Rock the Victorian look in a modern way.

Victorian is one of the styles that are not typically intended for an everyday wear unless it is made a little ordinary. So, make some tweaks to this style so you can wear it not only for the evening but also for daytime. Like fashion blogger Margaret Zhang, you may create an avant-garde street style by pairing your Victorian-inspired ensemble and choker with a pair of distressed jeans. Since this style itself offers a great range of romantic and lavish patterns and elements, be careful when putting all your outfits together.

Ways of wearing the Victorian fashion are endless. Just make sure not to overuse this trend by opting for too many Baroque pieces at a time or wearing such clothes on the daily basis. This way, you’ll save the iconic fashion style for special occasions.
