For those of you who love historical style, brace yourself for we´re about to revisit the 18th century Rococo art movement, only this time, through a revival of a decadent trend – the Baroque & Roll. This trend showcases lots of dark-sided sophistication with gold embellishments and rich textures. If Louis XIV is still alive, he would be so happy to embrace this trend. He´s known for notoriously wearing luxe fabrics in rich hues (I stole that italic phrase from Refinery29). But you girls need not be a royal to rock this more-is-more luxurious trend. I´ll show you how to get the look for less and most importantly, how to add a hint of baroque to your outfit without looking like you´re wearing a costume.
Baroque Print Long Sleeve Bodycon Dress
One tip to not look like wearing a costume, take only one baroque print piece and temper it with neutrals. For example, this baroque print long sleeve bodycon dress is already very beautiful, add a black ankle boot and black leather clutch. Skip the dangling earrings or loud bracelets, the dress is already complete.
Baroque Print Sleeveless Bodycon Dress
Mix baroque trend with modern pieces. If you´re already wearing a baroque printed dress, don´t team it with baroque print shoes, the result would be overwhelming. Instead, finish the dress off with a pair of modern shoes such as this cap toe pump which is very hot right now. Then add a complementary great clutch.
Baroque Print Leggings
A baroque print legging is overly trendy and the print can be intimidating. You need lots of toning down here. Add a hi-low black tunic top and a pair of really edgy ankle boots to give new definition to this trend, not vintage but edgy and modern baroque.
Baroque Print Vest Top
Remember your gorgeous leather pants? If you haven´t a pair yet, it´s time to get one because they really blend well with a baroque print top. If your vest is black, fo for black pumps or ankle boots. If it´s nude, finish it off with nude pumps too.
Remember, you´ll never go wrong if you mix modern prints with metallic brocades and layers of embellishments for a saucy, beautiful trendy look.
What do you think of baroque & roll trend? Is it something you´d like to wear this fall and winter?
