The dreamy nature of a true romantic style is comprised in one single word: Nostalgia!

If you recognize yourself in this description, you will truly feel at your best, if you are able to emulate the timeless elegance of a blooming rose!

Bellow you will find the six best fashion and beauty essentials for a high-end modern romantic style.

1. Airy Dresses with a Vintage Twist

Hopeless romantic women contemplate the world as an atemporal place of beauty that they have to explore gracefully, but unhindered. True romantic fashion is therefore nostalgic, tasteful, and particularly comfortable. Their most appealing fashion pieces will be extremely feminine, but never girly, seductive, but never brash. By choosing airy, single-colored maxi or midi dresses with a serene, delicate vintage flair, the romantic woman masters to melt femininity, freedom of movement, and elegance in one single outfit!

2. Nostalgic Floral Prints

The fusion of lightness with a refined vintage flair is the quintessence of the romantic fashion style. Always finding her best inspiration in nature, the romantic woman can’t live without embellishing herself with the delicate beauty of flower prints. She can either wear her artistic prints in soft, light colors, or give her femininity a more impressive character with darker backgrounds. If the floral touch is gentle, printed or embroidered on fine fabrics like cotton, linen, silk, brocade, or wool the dreamy effect will be superb: In the romantic’s presence, we may just feel as well surrounded by a garden full of flowers!

3. Dreamy Lace Pieces

The romantic style yearns for colors with a soft vintage touch like dusky pink, powder, cream, and all kinds of pastel hues. The more classic deeper blues and whites are also a must. Precious applications and nostalgic fine lace fabrics in these shades should never miss in the wardrobe of true romantic style lovers. While lace dresses, skirts and tops in baby blue, soft pink, and light yellow are ideal for ultrafeminine looks, white and navy pieces signalize a flawless, perfectly elegant character. Fashion pieces made of rich antique pink lace are ideal for a subtly seductive aura.

4. Romantic Jewelry

The perfect finish for every romantic look is the subtle brilliance of delicate jewelry. The lady’s devise is, of course: “Less is More”. A well selected pair of fine earrings, a single bracelet, a filigree necklace will express the characteristic femininity of the romantic style more accurately than fancy bling-bling. Just let your nostalgic fantasy speak for you and you will find your perfect choices in a minute: Little pearls, roses, hearts, flowers, the moon, and the stars will be the perfect companion of all dreamy girls out there!

6. Rosy Cheeks and Soft Highlighters

In beauty matters, the romantic woman keeps it simple: soft pink cheeks and some highlighters will do for her the trick. Her love for nature is so intense, that she will only allow in her complexion the soft colors of flowers and some fruits, leaving more sophisticated shades religiously untouched. As long as she keeps her make-up “as fresh as a rose, as healthy as a peach” she will feel herself at her best. High-end blushes like Kjaer Weis’s Creamy Blush in the shade Abundance are absolutely her thing. Highlighters with a touch of pink, gold, and beige like the RMS Beauty’s Luminizer X Quad or MAC’s Hyper Real Glow Palette will become her everyday helpers.
