Rock the Baroque

Wow, now that’s an intimidating image, isn’t it?
Don’t worry, I’m not here to tell you that the latest trend is to wear everything in one print and clash as much as possible.
I am going to write about one of A/W 2012’s latest trends though, and it’s one of my favourites.

Baroque certainly isn’t anything new, in fact that’s the point; inspired by the Rococo movement, the Baroque trend is all about decadence and opulence. Designers such as Dolce & Gabanna, Versace, Givenchy and Balmain have inspired the high street to join in on the fun – in fact, everyone wants in on the Baroque trend.

When done right, Baroque can make a high street outfit look like it’s just come off the catwalk.
When it’s done wrong, well…let’s not try to think about that.

Key points to remember?
– Embellishments
– Black & Gold
– ‘Scarf print’
– Brocades, texture & embroidery
– Lace, ruffles, velvet & metallics

This is a trend that is going to be super easy to find on the high street.
River Island are paying homage to the trend amazingly, whilst stores such as ASOS, H&M,
M&S and Topshop are also doing pretty good jobs.

Good luck and have fun!
