Romantic look

If you type something like “Romantic dress” or “Romantic dress style” in your search engine, many ideas of “a romantic dress” will show up.  You will notice  some nostalgia about them, most of them will contain a certain reference to the past, I mean the past, which is  a hundred years ago and older.

Look at the dress below. One great art critic said that ancient Greeks used to drape their sculptures to show the body, to reveal its sensuality, movement and muscles. In the middle ages drapery was designed to hide the body as much as possible. Gatsby and Edwardian style dresses that you see below do both things – they hide and at the same time reveal the body. Light fabrics flow like water and make the image absolutely romantic.

Many of us are inspired by  the past and  keep recreating their versions of it. Such dresses make you play a certain role. I love it.

It is unlikely that we will be ever tired of repeating and recreating this romantic look.
