It is hard to imagine, but a few years ago, when designers only started to show on the runway new Victorian blouses, many fashionistas embraced the idea with prejudice. Many girls judged these shirts with ruffles, high collars, lace trims, troglodytic, awkward and tough to adapt to modern fashion outfits and current trends.
After all, we’re back to the clean lines, fashion austerity, re-learned to wear simple t-shirts and dresses without decorating them by any accessories. And suddenly we got news from the runways – now we are back to the XIX century and we have to live with it.
What is happening today and what has changed in our attitude to this old-fashioned style? In one word, everything changed. Nowadays we can’t imagine a single season without fashion collection, showcasing new designs of Victorian style shirts and blouses.
We look at the celebrities who definitely appreciated the beauty of the Victorian design, and also wear these shirts and tops, combining them with long skirts or edgy leather pants or skinny jeans. This style has a lot of advantages and fashion benefits. Victorian blouses joint the mystery and sexuality, the closed cut with an abundance of decoration in the form of lacing, tight corsets, high collars and elegant cuffs, trimmed with lace.
Victorian style culture widely used today on-screen, so we are once again inspired by the understated luxury and the Gothic chic of these dresses and blouses.
Here is the range of beautiful Victorian style blouses from the fashion collections of 2017.
