Victoriana Lives On

7.02.2015

Style Theory: Victoriana style blouses are set to be a big trend this Autumn/Winter, the catwalks were full of beautiful ruffled blouses in sheer fabrics with lace details. Why not get on board with this trend now, Victoriana styling is incredibly versatile and translates beautifully from the summer, through the Autumn into the winter. The high street's exciting new stock is full of nods to this trend, I adore this look it is grown up with a cool edge and so easy to style...
Wear with distressed denim shorts and flat strappy sandals this summer.
Victoriana tops look fabulous with flared jeans..another 2015 must have.

Love this modern take on the Victoriana loook.
Victoriana tops are so easy to wear in the summer, pair with denim cut off shorts and strappy sandals for a cool day look, wear with a midi, long, button through skirt and tan sandal heels for an on trend 70s look. In the winter pair with flared or skinny jeans and throw a blazer over the top.

  1. I like them ... they don't like me. Or rather I have a short neck and feel a little trussed up if I do a full fasten up to the top. Now if they have a slight opening at the neck ... then we're talking. And you're always so ahead. I'm frantically buying shorts for the heatwave!

  3. I like the look as long as they're sleeveless...I'm not good in the high neck and long sleeves. So I'm loving that ASOS top...off for a closer look! X
