Baroque is back.

“Minimalism” is definitely not a term that will be widely used this autumn in terms of fashion. Opulence, exaggerated embellishment and a luxurious mixture of fabrics mark the start of this season’s baroque trend. Taking its inspiration from the rococo French fashion era as well as baroque, this trend is truly proof that fashion always comes back around.

Of course, you’re unlikely to spot layers of underskirt and extreme full length dresses on your daily trip in to town, but trust me when I say that you will notice aspects of this dramatic style come autumn. Embellishment and luxury fabrics will lead the way this time around, whilst the majority of cuts are simpler without losing exaggerated touches, making the look more suitable for 2012. Dolce and Gabbana had some of my personal favourite designs for A/W 2012, and the main focus of the show was extravagance in the form of modern baroque.

Luckily for us normal folk the high-street have also managed to create this look on much smaller budget without compromising the feel of luxury and opulence that’s needed.

River Island £40                     River Island £40
ASOS £75                                       ASOS £35 (tapestry)
H&M (A/W collection)                       Topshop £65

Considering my love for velvet, tapestry, and gold embellishment, I don’t think that this trend could be any more perfect.

Thanks for reading guys,
