FASHION AND CULTURE
Romantic dressing inspired by literary heroines, the art of entertaining at home and the film, book and TV releases to know about
Romance is in the air, as genteel frocks take over the catwalk and the big screen. Adaptations of Little Women (out now) and Emma (out 14 February) will have you dreaming of a ‘softer’ wardrobe – one where undulating ruffles and floor-caressing gowns take centre stage. Concerned about looking too much like a Thomas Hardy milkmaid? Toughen it up with boots, chunky sandals or a death stare.
