Inspired by: Elizabeth Bennet

So what would Miss Bennet wear today? Taking cues from the Regency Era, a modern day Elizabeth Bennet would delight in wearing flowing, feminine silhouettes, like this sea foam green empire waist dress. This lovely dress would look best accessorized with simple pearl stud earrings or with a silver heart locket, no doubt containing a picture of the dashing Mr. Darcy.

Ladies wearing pants would have been unheard of back in the early 1800s, but the Lizzy of today would be comfortable yet put together in a pair of gray skinny jeans and a silk blouse. For more dressy occasions, Lizzy would impress even the most discerning party hosts by pairing an embellished skirt with a soft pink blouse cinched with a corsage belt.

Some of Miss Bennet's other wardrobe staples would be oversized sunglasses (as an alternative to the mob caps and parasols of the Regency Era), a chic crossbody bag, sleek sky high suede ankle booties, and a wear-with-anything black cardigan.
