Rocking Baroque

Rocking Baroque
Fancy adding a bit of drama to your wardrobe this season?
If you are a minimalist, this may bring you out in a hot flush, but if you like to make a statement, why not embrace the very romantic and dramatic baroque fashion trend?  Inspired by Michelangelo’s 16th century works, this is fashion sophistication at its best.
Dolce & Gabbana were the queens of the catwalk this Autumn 2012. One look at their fabulous brocade knee boots and I was hooked!

In this depressing economic downturn, lets be bold and rebel against simplicity. Baroque is so opulent, decadent, bold and rich! Think chain prints on leopard spots, swirling black fauna, rococo swirls, gold embroidery.
Wear it head to toe and layer up to be really dramatic. Don’t restrict yourself to clothing either – there are some really funky boots and shoes around too. These cute little slippers are a creative way to bring your outfit up to date.  You will have a cheeky little nod to the trend straight away!
You don’t have to spend a fortune to achieve the look, you could just add a couple items of Stella & Dot jewellery, like the fabulous  Starstruck cocktail ring here from the new Autumn collection. I have two items already from this blog – the Primark trousers and the Zara embellished dress.

The great thing about the dress is that you don’t need a necklace as the neckline is so beautifully detailed. I will team it with a Stella & Dot statement earring like the Petra fringe ones here.
Will you be embracing  this trend? Let me know how you get on!
