Romance Isn't Dead.

So after years of minimalism taking the drivers seat in the fashion stakes it’s refreshing to see the pretty nudes, sheers and pastel shades that come with this seasons lucky in love trend.

Admittedly it probably isn’t the most wearable of concepts as I am yet to find someone confident enough to work the catwalk-esque look of sheer shirts (that reveal perhaps a little TOO much flesh and leave little TO the imagination) down the high street; but despite this there really are some beautiful textures and colours to play with and work in to your wardrobe – guaranteed to get you your own Romeo in time for summer.

I particularly love the inclusion of feathers that feature heavily amongst numerous designers’ collections, really capturing the idea of freedom and natural beauty, as well as creating gorgeous shapes and delicate detailing.

This dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen (McQueen WILL be mentioned regularly at any given opportunity as he was a true hero) is beyond stunning and represents romance at its best .
After the recent success of the film The Black Swan, ballet wear has become an essential part of this romantic era, with its delicate colour palette tying in fantastically. Being a dancer myself I am seriously considering digging out the old tutu and satin ribbons and reworking it in to my existing wardrobe.

Pastel and nude shades, ditsy prints and attention to detail are what we should all be looking for and the high street isn’t letting us down. This gorgeous frill playsuit from River Island is bang on trend and all for under £40 – pink isn’t my colour but if this is anything to go by, I could well be a converted woman.
