The Romantic fashion style is best defined by feminine, sensual, and flirty touches like soft and flowing fabrics. The style resembles the Victorian Era for where you can picture yourself as the heroine in a historical romance. Ruffles, lace, floral motifs, and velvet are one-of-a-kind whimsical details and dressing in these outfits is a fun and flirty way to adapt the romantic fashion style.
A southern California girl, Liz Cherkasova of Late Afternoon blog is known for her romantic and sophisticated style where feminine meets urbanite fashion. Liz style of “not-so-typical” Californian girl makes her so unique that she even likes to mix colors, textures, and shapes to create unexpected combinations. Let’s check her great photos and get some inspiration for romantic outfits.
The romantic fashion style tends to be in dresses and skirts than pants, most of which have draping fabrics and flowing shapes. So, like Liz, you may opt for dresses in soft fabrics like chiffon or lace, preferably with designs like ruffles, floral print, watercolor prints, and in classic or pastel colors. Just polish your looks with sophisticated accessories like gold belts, hats, chic sunglasses, classic pumps, stiletto sandals and such.
If you think too many ruffles and frills on your dress can create a look that’s more girlish than womanly, or maxi dress and long sleeves style dresses look a bit outdated and too conservative, then spice up your style with sexy cuts and styles like strapless, halter, off-shoulder, backless and such. You’ll still look sexy and feminine without being too daring and wild. Like Liz, you may opt for a sling bag that goes well with your dress.
Another sexy way of looking sexy but demure is to wear a crop top paired with a high waist skirt. Like Liz, you may opt for a matching crop top and skirt designs, same fabrics like lace and chiffon, same print with a more subtle one, or even in contrasting shades. You may also go for a knee length skirt to a mini when the length is important to your look. As long as you wear more flowy tops pieces, classic structures and tailoring of your mini or knee length skirts are fine. Keep in mind about balancing your wardrobe with some up-to-date basics in classic colors that you can mix with your more romantic and feminine pieces.
Being romantic in your fashion style doesn’t mean skipping pants. Though you may skip denim jeans, you may still opt for dressy pants like cullotes, palazzo pants, flared pants, floral print pants and such. Like Liz, you may team those kinds of pants with a lace top, cut out blouse, crop top, flouncy blouse, bow-tie blouse and such. Just take care not to wear anything that’s too baggy since semi-fitted clothing will make you look longer and leaner and on the other hand, baggy clothing makes you look bulkier and heavier.
A stand out in the crowd fashion style might not be the ‘in-vogue’ among the masses, as nowadays trends may depict more edginess, sexiness, and modernity. But, you are always a delight for your pure femininity shown through your romantic fashion style.
