This post is one that has been going back and forth in my head. Weirdly enough, the name of the trend I would be highlighting in today’s is a very recent discovery of mine. Think about delicate lace, ruffles, pleats, pastel florals, ethereal, soft feathers, pinks and blushes. The romantic trend is a personal favourite because I am such a girly girl. I love any kind of fashion that makes me feel like a princess. There is nothing wrong in feeling like one right? The romantic trend has been seen in all major catwalk shows across the world, from New York to Milan, Paris and London. Romance is every where. Both international and local designers such as Bridget Awosika, Simone Rocha, Erdem, Mother of Pearl, Ejiro Amos Tafiri and many others have dipped their creative paws in this effortless trend.

Designers have also played with this trend on accessories and intimates ( underwear, bathing suits and nightwear).

I believe this trend is here to stay. It flatters most body shapes and appropriate for almost all ages. Except you aren’t a super ‘girly’ kind of girl, the romantic trend is truly for anyone. Even on the red carpet, stylish celebrities pay homage to their feminine sides in romantic frocks.
