From Feminine Medieval Attire to Victorian-Inspired Menswear

By: Laura McQuarrie - Published: May 17, 2013
These historical fashion collections are representative of a shift away from efficient and basic minimalist fashions in favor of opulence, glamour and elegance. By nature, fashion is quite cyclical, and is now bringing back quilted textures, tapestry-inspired prints, armor-like silhouettes and lace. Fashion is a great form of escapism and an easy way to take on another persona through a simple change of shoes, accessories or attire.

These fashions take historical elements from the Baroque, Medieval, Rococo, Renaissance, Victorian eras and modernize them -- making it feel as if you've been transported to another time with these garments. It is almost as if time travel is possible, brought on by a simple change of clothes. Stats for 60 Neo-Historical Fashions Trending: Older & Popular
