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