Attending an Edwardian era evening affair or wedding? The Titanic and Downton Abbey time period is a romantic one filled with stunning vintage evening gowns of lace, beading, chiffon and silk. You can achieve a romantic vintage inspired look using new Edwardian style gowns and dresses and add period shoes and accessories to take your new gown back in time.
The late Victorian and Edwardian ballgown went from an hourglass silhouette to a slender column with a flattering empire waist, butterfly sleeves, long side drapes, and touches of the Orient. Mid-Victorian evening dresses were off the shoulder ballgowns in rich fabrics and big trim. While most gowns had sleeves you can buy a sleeveless gown and wrap a lace shawl or evening jacket over it or layer under a lace top. Use the menu above to add jewelry, hair pins, gloves and other accessories.
