Ahhh, the Renaissance: the time of Shakespeare, fresco paintings, the Medici, and those short, puffy pants men used to wear over tights. Feeling nostalgic for a time long past? So is the fashion industry, clearly.
Bell sleeves, buckles, cinched waists, scooped necklines…it’s time to delve into the mystery and romance of Renaissance (but with the wit and whimsy of a 21st century fashionista). Grab yourself a bell-sleeved blouse and we bet you can put together your own Renaissance look from your closet. Check out the outfits below for inspiration.
