Shopping Bag: New Romantics

IMAGE DESCRIPTION.Sense and Sensibility vibes.

This spring, fashion is tapping into its softer side with a whole new crop of dreamy flowing dresses, moody dark florals, dainty lace accents, and romantic accessories. Brands like Erdem, Alexander McQueen, and Rodarte took inspiration from English roses and romantics of the late 18th century. Picture yourself in a Jane Austen novel, add equal parts windswept hair and rosy cheeks, a field of wildflowers, and that's what this trend is all about. But forget the corsets, because this  style has been given a 21st century redo with darker, moodier colors, fresh cuts, and a new attitude of carefree independence. No matter how you wear it, this trend will send you straight to the English countryside searching for your very own Mr. Darcy.  Sign us up, please!


Soft, romantic faces also made their rounds for Spring 2016's beauty lineup; click here to read up on the runway's biggest beauty trends.  When you've done that,  we're also prepared to let you in on a secret about the cool Spring/Summer textile that you need to get stocking up on - stat.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
