Back to Baroque

Dolce&Gabbana floral print dress, 1 470 AUD / Versace dress, 595 AUD / Elizabeth and James peplum top, 345 AUD / Cape coat, 795 AUD / Citizens of Humanity printed jeans, 380 AUD / Gucci pencil skirt, 1 330 AUD / Yves Saint Laurent ring, 470 AUD / Karl Amber crystal and bead-embellished cotton collar, 175 AUD

Okay, let’s forget minimalism. It’s time to go all out! Despite what I’ve been saying about my wardrobe tending to be minimal and stick to neutrals and blacks, like any Melbournian, the past few weeks I’ve been seeing a lot of statement and out there things on the street – lavish prints, loud colours, opulent fabrics, metallic accents and gilded details. It’s like being back in the Renaissance period, and I have to say I’m really loving it!

Incorporate a little bit of Baroque into your outfits by adding a brocade peplum top like the Elizabeth & James one above, or invest in a metallic separate like the Gucci pencil skirt. OR if you wanted to go all out, the D&G floral dress would be a stunner for any formal occasion.

Baroque - Aussie edit!

Jersey dress / Bardot vintage shirt / Mink Pink denim shorts, 82 AUD / Mink pink, 94 AUD / Zimmermann bikini swimwear, 260 AUD / The Last Judgment Leggings, 71 AUD

Bringing it back into a local perspective, it’s not only the big name designers that are getting into it – there are Aussie labels and shops which are tapping into the prints and elaborate patterns and gorgeous rich fabrics too! A simple Baroque printed pair of shorts will update your wardrobe for the upcoming Spring/Summer just perfectly – so embrace the explosion of fabulousness in the fashion world by playing around with a Baroque inspired piece this season!

For more inspiration check out Elle UK‘s and Harper’s Bazaar‘s posts on the same trend!

What do you guys think of this trend, and how would you wear it, if at all? 🙂

  1. I am all about minimalism when it comes to clothing – I have ONE dress that has a print on it!! But looking at all the beautiful textures, especially on the black skirt, is making me want something like this! xx


  2. I'm sure this a trend even the most minimalist person can try – so decadent and luxe, how could they resist those gorgeous textures haha.

    Could even be limited to one item as a statement piece, like those Mink Pink shorts. Amazing xx


  3. i really adore the e&j peplum top and the zimmermann bikini set is super cute.
    ps. i knew they would be making a bit of money doing this whole fellt thing, but i really didn't think they'd be making THAT much. i suppose a lot of jess's clothes are gifted from australian labels before the collections have even launched and from other sources, of course, generated by this guy. it is sad that they've lost their identity in some way though, i definately agree with that. fingers crossed for this sass & bide collection! x.
