Spring Style Rundown: Victorious.

To end my Spring Style Rundown series, I saved one of my personal favourites for last: Victorian-inspired details. High necklines, ruffles, intricate details of lace, and delicate bows dominated the runways…I guess you could say they’re victorious. Zimmermann was one of my personal favourites for the season, featuring soft colours accompanied by feminine silhouettes that had a clear Victorian influence. And while this trend is seen as a conservative one, Zimmermann still managed to create a flirtatious collection that I can totally see myself wearing with ease in 2016. So without further ado, I present to you all my top picks for the best Victorian-esque looks for spring (and they are all Zimmermann because I couldn’t pick just a couple)!

Spring Style Rundown: Do the ruffle shuffle.

Ruffles. It seems as though runways across the map for spring were seeing the feminine classic flouncing about. This season, however, ruffles were like no other. RIP to the strictly girly girl ruffles that we’ve seen in the past (although there’s still plenty of room for ruffles in the girly closet). Olivier Roustling of Balmain did what he does best and gave ruffles a punch of sexy, while over at Alexander McQueen we were blessed with a special sweetness and glimmers of inspiration from the Victorian age. All of this while Jason Wu gave us some black and silver ruffles to make people like myself feel too cool for school. With all this being said…let’s all do the ruffle shuffle, shall we?
