You are ethereal and mysterious, a stunning character that may have stepped from the pages of a fairytale or traversed from the silver screen to real life. Heads turn when you walk by, and you leave an impression in the air behind you, like the gentlest cloud of perfume. The most everyday things become enchanting with the right fabric swishing around your body. This is who you are when you choose a romantic dress.
Dresses With Whimsy
Our favorite romantic dresses flow beautifully around the female frame. A hallmark of romance in fashion is impeccable draping and a perfect juxtaposition between whimsy and femininity. Lots of fabric layers in a skirt, ruffles around the shoulders, or lace accents are details that create stunning romance in a dress. Romantic clothing from thredUP will always turn heads with fabulous silhouettes.
The most whimsical options usually come in pastel colors and gentle prints. You'll find options like one-shoulder sheath dresses with flirty hems, asymmetrical skirts with trains that flow around your ankles, and off-the-shoulder knee-length dresses that embody springtime. Accessorize these with simple jewelry, like plain gold or silver chains around your neck and solitaire diamonds in your ears.
Sexy, Surprising Looks
We love the sultry side of romantic dresses, like dangerous v-neck dresses that fall to your feet and enhance your body's gorgeous shape, or backless gowns in deep colors that look like they belong on the cover of a romance novel. Deep colors are perfect for late fall and winter events, when holiday dresses abound. Go for details like long sleeves made of lace, satin wraps to keep your shoulders warm, and bodices that hug your body.
Gowns for Galas and Everyday Ensembles
When you picture romantic dresses, you probably envision the clouds of fabric and stunning colors featured in Disney princess flicks. Shop modern day gowns at thredUP when you want to feel that little spark of royalty in your own outfit. But the romantic style often graces everyday looks, too, and these dresses are a wonderful way to liven up an otherwise dull day.
An everyday dress in pastel hues with a full skirt brings the ardor of spring to your very skin. A knee-length dress in beige or pink with gentle silk or organza ruffles detailing the bodice hints that you may be a fairytale princess dressed in everyday clothes. A pair of plain pumps in a complementary color, your favorite sandals, or cork wedges will enhance your romantic everyday clothes without overpowering them.
At thredUP you'll find romantic options that fit a range of body types, enhancing your natural beauty in a subtle and irresistible way. These pre-loved clothes are one-of-a-kind, so don't let that perfect fairytale ensemble slip away. Be your own fairy godmother and treat yourself to up to 90% off retail prices at thredUP.
