Travel Back in Time - Fashions to Steal from the Victorian Era ...


You wouldn't want to live during the 1800s, because of the discrimination between genders and races, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't steal styles from the time period.2

Think about Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.

Don't you think they had an interesting type of fashion?

While you don't want to wear exactly what they wore back in the day, here are a few different aspects of fashion to steal from the Victorian Era:

1. Wear a Corset as a Shirt

In the Victorian Era, women wore corsets underneath their clothes as a medieval type of Spanx.

However, nowadays, you should try wearing a corset as a shirt.

There are plenty of cute ones that you can buy at the mall, and there are even dresses that have corset tops.2

They're super fashionable and not nearly as uncomfortable as they appear.

2. Wear a Waistcoat

Men were the ones who wore these during the Victorian Era, but now we should be the ones wearing them.

A waistcoat will look professional at the office and stylish on a date.

They're the perfect item for any time or place.

3. Wear a Wider Skirt than Usual

You probably won't wear a skirt as wide as they did back in the Victorian Era, but you can still wear one that's wider than a typical modern skirt.2

Instead of slipping into a tight miniskirt, try wearing something with more material that poofs out a bit.

4. Wear a Shirt with a High Collar

You don't always have to wear low-cut shirts, you know.

Your chest can look just as sexy when it's covered up with a tight shirt that has a high collar.

Besides, it'll make you look more sophisticated, so it's the perfect thing to wear at a job interview or when meeting your mate's parents.
