Fall/Winter '12 Trends:
Living In Baroque Times

It’s Baroque and Romanticism this Fall/Winter 2012/13 season and we couldn’t be more happier. You can choose from plenty of pieces from gilded dresses to simple and stylist bouclé wool or tweed skirts. Any picks will definitely make a fashion statement!

Italian Baroque fashion is inspired by Michelangelo's 16th century works, borrowing volutes, spiraling shapes that climb up the female body or embellish basic accessories, adding a sophisticated touch and making a statement. Baroque print plays out in a number of ways: for the bold, flashy chain prints on leopard spots link with ropes on bomber jackets.

Baroque-inspired is the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2012/13 Collection which features gold embroidery on capes, coats, skirts and boots, designed to ""recall baroque mirrors and frames"". The dresses and jackets have prints of angels and cherubs and patterns inspired by ""dining room tapestries"".

A more affordable collection that has baroque influences is the gorgeous River Island Autumn/Winter 2012/13 Collection.

The baroque trend is not restricted to clothing. Designers have gone wild with shoes and accessories design. The Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2012/13 Collection presents tapestry boots, jewel headbands, sophisticated high-heels, and dramatic dangling earrings, some with the cherub motif.

When wearing a baroque styled dress remember to keep everything else simple. Keep your hair down and your make-up natural.
