New Trend: Baroque
I never thought that this would be something I would say, but the 17th century is having a comeback! Whether it be jewellery, a cocktail dress or a blazer, one thing is certain - no one should go this season without sporting a little baroque.
How do you recognise this luxe trend? Look for swirls of gold, luxurious embossed prints, rich embroideries, broad laces and ribbons, large floral prints and embellishment. This look is all about drama, so more is more is more!
Take style inspiration from celebs Kristen Stewart, Selena Gomez and Diane Kruger for this chic take on the "Shakespeare in Love" style.
If this all seems a bit over the top, you can still make the trend a part of your wardrobe by sporting baroque inspired clutches, jewellery, headbands and scarves.
All in all, the baroque trend is one that is surprisingly easy to get right and when done either wholeheartedly or through the use of gilded accessories, can guarantee a seriously luxurious ensemble.
You can shop the look just about everywhere – Zara, Cue, David Lawrence, Topshop, Bardot, AIWear, Boohoo and ASOS all stock these lavish prints! For accessories, head to Accessorize, The Iconic or Mimco.
