Pastel colors of the buds and confetti, sweets and glide lines, pre-raffaelite atmospheres for modern icons Romantic.
Of romance icons
Many icons of the romantic look for inspiration: Audrey Hepburn, with his soap and water make-up, her hair and clothes to the knee with flared skirts, the young Robin White (later Mrs. Penn) in the part of Princess Princess Bride with long dresses to the ankles decorated by hand and long flowing blond curls, Audrey Tatou for ten years icon of French romanticism with flowers and cardigan on brick tones of Amelie Poulin, style echoed by Juliette Binoche in Chocolat that the boots prefers red shoes with a very sensual heel coupled with perforated shawls; while the UK version of sentimentality remains the elegant and sober Princess Kate (on the other hand you know, the princesses are always sentimental).
A closer look at their styles are not the same and recognize different eras in the interpretations… Yet express in the same way a melancholic sentimentality, a slow seduction desire, the desire to find love and the only key.
A bouquet of colors
For the romantic look the most popular colors are delicate on pastel tones, from powder to yellow banana, cream of white, pink and blue verdeacqua. A bouquet of colored buds mild spring from nude look. Alternatively French indoctrinated us with tones brick, dark green to match with powder pink more cargo or blue and brown tobacco or saturated yellow towards a solution more vintage and definitely a connection with Parisian style. The monochrome of a leader should be combined with tone on tone polka dots, lace details in the white collar and cuffs of shirts and skirts, pieces openwork mesh playing with transparencies. The “handmade” is an important element for that the perforated mesh are a staple of the wardrobe of the young woman.
The lines of seduction
This look is simple but comfortable. The skirts are too short, narrow or tight pants are not home. The lines are soft, especially in skirts that recall the 50s and no shortage of pleated, generally with a high waist. These can be combined with cardigans more clingy or cache-coeur, unique elements that embrace the forms. This style gives the impression of not wanting to leave the comfort of a soft sweater, winter strictly cachemeare. The shawl is an element that can characterize decisively the romantic style. Seduction is a little physical game and very intellectual, the sweetness is the main weapon of romantic and renounce aggressive approaches as well as the make-up (it is understood that the make up is there but not seen).
It is important to note, however, as this look has different forms depending on the situation.In clothing of every day we can say that has a retro accent : often a leather shoulder bag or a silk white shirt can emphasize the style, as well as a clip in your hair. In circumstances as “ceremony ” this trend veers shapes and colors plus pelleted and, instead of referring to the years ’60- ’70, recalls the atmosphere of the post-war boom and the sophistication of the princesses of all ages. The delicate and worked jersey, replacing silk or (sparingly) organza, shinier materials. For the evening many outfits discover shoulders and decolletage suggesting a pre-Raphaelite atmosphere, un’Ophelia Millais, engaging and decisive as that expressed by Vanessa Bruno.
Melancholic and romantic

The perforated mesh is symbol of romance, the softness of the forms cancels aggression and gives a picture of melancholy of the past. The cache-coeur is a typical garment of this style that recalls the style of classical dance school.

Shades of romantic look go from flesh-colored, with blush pink, the pink, tacking on yellow banana and combinations on the white and ecru. The lines that ensure a sentimental and candid effects are loose clothing to the ankles and flared skirts. As suggested by the designer Vanessa Bruno, the maxidress with wide necklines give a pre-Raphaelite effect … the stars lines buttoned direzionerebbero instead on “schoolgirl look” (which is not romantic, it’s simply chastised …).
