Victorian inspired designs have become a constant on runways. From luxurious velvet, corsets and rich brocade these details are mainstays in the collections of designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Isabel Marant, and Marc Jacobs. For the summer, we’ve dreamed up a look that combines the delicate flourishes of lace with more urban, street style influences. The result is a cool mix of feminine and tomboy touches for a surprisingly chic summer look.

Unexpected Fashion Companions Victorian X Street Style LOOK

Why it Works: Isabel Marant’s embroidered blouse provides the dreamy Victorian inspiration for this outfit. With its lace panels and silk ruffles, the blouse is ultra-feminine. The on-trend NSF boyfriend jeans contrast nicely with the delicate flourishes of the blouse. The outfit is topped off with clean accessories for a polished and clean result. The rounded toe of the classic Ferragamo flats is reminiscent of the Victorian era and Marc by Marc Jacobs’ bold crossbody infuses the look with a bold modern touch.
