The hands-down, connecting theme this style season is undeniably romantic. Last year was all about androgynous fashion. Today the focus is on femininity, frills, flowers and affection for all that is seductive – from the subtle to the sizzling. Whether it's ruffles, billowy sleeves, bared-shoulders, lace, Victorian-looks or Boho maxis that flow breezily behind you as you walk, it’s all about romance and looks that are hyper-feminine. As is the case with any trend, moderation is important. When experimenting with ruffles, all-over lace, and crystal embellishments, these elements are stronger in small doses — via one statement piece instead of an entire ensemble.

“Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze.” Carolyn Gold Heilbrun
