Trend Alert: Baroque is no joke
September 8, 2005
The Baroque time period (1600-1750) was a time of emotion and extravagance. Royalty and church leaders were focused on being the best and brightest and showing off their finest things–especially their fashion. Jump a few centuries and Baroque is back. From sparkling tops to ornamental accessories, fallâ€™s fashion is all about rich embellishment (even the word â€œembellishâ€ dates back to the Baroque period!) The luxury of this trend is in the details: lace, velvet, and fur trimmings. Look for lush colors and intricate detailing, anything that seems luxuriously romantic will keep you on-trend this fall. Find Baroque inspired fashion during vivre.com’s fall preview.
