Victorian-inspired looks took the Fall 2016 runways by storm and the trickle down has many of us looking to high collars and flouncy lace detailing as a way to satisfy our trendy cravings. I happened to have this vintage top in my closet and so I paired it with a modern trouser from Theory, a black ankle boot and a sleek ponytail. If you’re thinking of dipping your toe into this trend, remember, you’re not dressing for a costume party. Modernize your nod to Victoriana with contemporary pieces and you’ll be sure to land on the right side of propriety. A very Victorian ambition indeed.
