We first discovered Baroque fashion when we saw these amazing Minimal Baroque Prada sunglasses from their Spring 2011 collection.
Who knew fashion could be inspired by art in such a grand way! This fall, it seems that the Baroque Era from the 17th and 18th century is making another comeback in the 21st century, but with a modern update.
Baroque is a term used to describe the architecture, music and art of the 17th and 18th century. This style lavished buildings in intricate shapes, gave opulent paintings and morals, and the style of dress extravagance.
Baroque fashion is definitely bringing the drama, opulence and luxury back into fashion. With very intricate details like embroidery and appliques, you'll be a masterpiece of style. It'll be dramatic and bold, be adorned with beautiful textures, and be made out of rich fabrics like velvet and silk.
If you're going to wear the baroque look don't be afraid to go all out! Wear those heels, that red lipstick or statement earrings. This look clearly says lavish, so why not go all out?
